In spite of his tragically brief career, British horn player Dennis Brain was one of the few wind players of the 20th century to achieve something close to superstar status. Besides reviving interest in the great horn literature from the past, he inspired many composers to expand its solo and chamber music repertoire, including Hindemith, Poulenc, and a number of British composers, most notably Britten, who wrote some of his most sublime music for Brain. His recording of the four Mozart horn concertos remains a classic, and it's reissued here with Mozart's Quintet for piano and winds, K. 452. While there are certainly a variety of approaches to the concertos, it would be hard to deny that Brain's performance comes about as close to perfection as imaginable. His tone is distinctively noble, pure, creamy, and full, and his technique is unimpeachable. One of the most striking things about his performance is its seamlessness, and his velvety legato has seldom been surpassed. Most importantly, he brings poise and an innate sense of elegance to the concertos that are ideal for this serenely beautiful music. Herbert von Karajan leads the Philharmonia Orchestra in a graceful, appropriately understated accompaniment. The orchestra is larger than what has become standard since the advent of historically informed performance practice, with its leaner ensembles and use of period instruments, but Karajan's crisp readings are models of mid-20th century Mozart performances. Mozart wrote that his Quintet for piano and winds, K. 452, was "the best thing so far I have written in my life," and it is exceptionally graceful, inventive, and witty. Pianist Colin Horsley and the Dennis Brain Wind Ensemble play it with the delicacy and finely calibrated precision to make it really sparkle. The somewhat distant mono sound is a drawback, particularly in the concertos, but it can be ameliorated by boosting the volume a little. It is clean, though, and does capture the magic of Brain's sound and interpretations.

Les Grands Angles...
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.

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.

Le paradoxe du studio d’Esa-Pekka Salonen

Le Finlandais Esa-Pekka Salonen est un chef d’orchestre acclamé et un compositeur prolifique. Avec plus de 60 disques au compteur, il a fait évoluer l’histoire de l’interprétation. Dialogue avec un musicien exceptionnel qui évoque pour Qobuz son travail en studio et son rapport à l’enregistrement.
