Composer and pianist Brad Mehldau is admired by jazz aficionados for his work with his eponymous trio, and soprano Renée Fleming is internationally renowned for her operatic performances and recitals of classical art songs. Knowing this, one might think that Love Sublime, Mehldau's and Fleming's 2006 release on Nonesuch, is a crossover album; yet while they are meant to appeal to a broad audience, Mehldau's original settings of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke, Louise Bogan, and Fleurine are serious modern art songs, and not the easy hybrids of jazz and classical they may appear to be. Mehldau's musical language is difficult to define, and his fluid, changeable songs resist easy comparisons: one may hear a little of Charles Ives' moody tone-painting here, a bit of Francis Poulenc's jaunty rhythms there, or touches of Ned Rorem's prosody elsewhere, but these are incidental features that can be found in many contemporary songs. Similarly, some of the harmonies may seem to spring from Mehldau's jazz work, and his handling of tonality and generally spare piano accompaniments at times may reflect an improvisational origin; but to single out such characteristics gives the impression that Mehldau's music is purposely eclectic, which it is not. The elements of these songs are so well integrated, it is clear that they have an organic consistency, and any surface eclecticism is probably unintentional and beside the point. Furthermore, Mehldau has internalized the words and his musical ideas thoroughly, so they are quite apt, and sound utterly natural and unaffected. In terms of the performance, Fleming is sympathetic to Mehldau's introspective idiom: she reflects the austerity of his accompaniment in her controlled tone, and communicates the rather melancholy lyrics with pensive expression and subdued coloration. This is a thoughtful performance, and Fleming and Mehldau are content to let the words and music speak for themselves; their understated delivery urges the listener to follow the texts closely -- a good idea, considering the subtle nuances of the poetry. Nonesuch provides clean, naturally resonant sound.

ECM en 10 albums

Le plus beau son après le silence. C’est la formule qui colle à la peau d’ECM depuis cinquante ans et la sortie du séminal « Free at Last » du Mal Waldron Trio, en novembre 1969. Manfred Eicher, le charismatique fondateur du label munichois, ne vit pas « hors du temps » mais plus précisément dans « un temps parallèle » à celui de la société, faisant d’ECM une planète de toute beauté où le jazz résonne autrement. Et c’est souvent pour ECM que Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea et tant d’autres ont enregistré leurs disques les plus intenses. Plus encore que pour Blue Note ou Impulse!, se limiter à 10 albums pour raconter toute l’histoire de ce label hors-norme est mission impossible. Aussi, les 10 sélectionnés raconteront « une » histoire d’ECM.

Le Chant de la Terre : Gustav Mahler et l’Ailleurs

Qu’est-ce qui a pu pousser Gustav Mahler, en 1907-1908, à composer une œuvre aussi inclassable que celle-ci ? Écrit à un moment charnière dans la vie de Mahler, Le Chant de la Terre occupe une place à part dans son œuvre et marie l’esprit « fin de siècle » à la fascination pour l’exotisme qui grandissait à l’époque chez ses contemporains. À Vienne, l’heure était alors aux turbulences, et cette pièce qui oscille entre adieu et nouveau départ mérite un examen plus attentif.

Les flamboyantes extases de Scriabine

Quelque peu éclipsé aujourd’hui par ses compatriotes Stravinski ou Rachmaninov, Alexandre Scriabine n’en reste pas moins une figure incontournable de la musique russe. Aux balbutiements du XXe siècle, le compositeur et pianiste virtuose s’émancipe de l’héritage romantique pour proposer un langage musical singulier et novateur qui ne connaîtra pas d’héritier. Son œuvre, profondément influencée par la philosophie mystique et la synesthésie, connaîtra en à peine deux décennies une évolution fulgurante, interrompue par sa mort prématurée à l’âge de 43 ans.
