Why have contemporary Chinese-born composers been so successful among concert audiences in the West? Perhaps it's because they give the Western listener something to hang onto in difficult music: even audiences with no particular background in Chinese traditional music can identify a Chinese element a composer is working with -- a tune, a traditional instrument, a scale -- and pick out the relationships it forms with other musical elements. Qigang Chen is a Chinese-French composer, said in the booklet of this release on the major Virgin Classics label to be among the most frequently performed of contemporary composers. He is less well known in the U.S., and the enduring orientation toward subtle colors in French orchestral music is audible in the four pieces on this disc. The performances here, recorded at different times between 1990 and 2005, show a composer who has applied considerable imagination to the task of combining two musical traditions. Extase (1995), for oboe and orchestra, forces the oboe in the direction of a Chinese folk instrument called the so-na. The player uses circular breathing and difficult repeated-note techniques to create a strong, harsh reed-instrument sound that is nevertheless carefully matched to the oboe's capabilities. San Xiao (Three Bursts of Laughter, 1995-1996), by contrast, forces an ensemble of three Chinese traditional instruments in the direction of Western music; it was commissioned by a Chinese ensemble whose players had to find ways of making their instruments produce Western semitones. The most recent piece on the disc L'eloignement (Departure, 2004) is organized around a Chinese folk song about a necessary parting of a married couple. To this expressive, accessible element Qigang Chen counterposes passages with complex divisions of his 34-piece string orchestra. The early Yuan (Origins, 1987) works hints of Chinese tonalities into a dense score that draws on influences from Messiaen and Debussy. Qigang Chen's music is tense and precise, yet accessible and attractive; listeners who have heard the works of Chinese-American composers like Bright Sheng or Chen Yi in concert should taste this alternate flavor of Chinese-Western fusion.

Berlioz, la Fantastique en 10 versions

Véritable manifeste de l’émergence du romantisme français, la “Symphonie fantastique” de Berlioz aura marqué le XIXe siècle comme le “Sacre du printemps” de Stravinsky marquera le suivant. Créés à Paris, autrefois creuset mondial de l’effervescence artistique, ces deux chefs-d’œuvre ont fait basculer durablement le langage musical dans une autre dimension. Le 5 décembre 1830, l’œuvre révolutionnaire d’un Hector Berlioz de 27 ans émeut les musiciens présents dans la petite salle de l’ancien conservatoire, parmi lesquels Meyerbeer et Liszt, vivement impressionnés par l’extraordinaire audace de cet ouvrage présenté trois ans seulement après la mort de Beethoven.

Glenn Gould : l'extravagance ?

Il ne faisait rien comme les autres et c’est sans doute pour ça qu’il est devenu l’un des pianistes les plus respectés du XXe siècle. Avec ses interprétations inédites des grands classiques du classique, sa façon de jouer les coudes sous le clavier et ses excentricités, Glen Gould était un des musiciens les plus appréciés – et les plus critiqués – de son temps. Retour sur la carrière de ce pianiste d’art et d’essai.

Radu Lupu, un génie très discret

Décrit comme un poète, géant, magicien ou pianiste de l'indicible, l’artiste roumain entretenait un certain mystère autour de sa personnalité tourmentée et puissamment introvertie qui illuminait son approche musicale. Au piano, il recherchait un son puissant et consistant, pétrissant son clavier comme un boulanger sa pâte. Radu Lupu nous a quittés le 17 avril 2022, laissant un legs discographique relativement restreint et d'autant plus précieux.
