Bechara El-Khoury, partly trained in Lebanon, came to France in 1979 and eventually became a French citizen. These ambitious orchestral works all date from the early part of his residence in France, a time during which he had the experience of watching his homeland collapse into paroxysms of house-to-house fighting. The music is, accordingly, mostly grim in mood, with lots of portentous tympani strokes, and two of these works, the Requiem pour orchestre, Op. 18 and the Poème symphonique No. 1, "Le Liban en flammes" (Lebanon in Flames), Op. 14, directly address Lebanon's civil war. These works are part of a trilogy on this theme; the third work, Symphony: The Ruins of Beirut, has inexplicably been issued by Naxos on a different CD. All this music for large orchestra was written between 1979 and 1982, during which time El-Khoury was also studying and writing other works. That gives an idea of what it's like: it is confident, even exuberant in its handling of the orchestra, but it lacks an individual voice. El-Khoury's music hangs close to the line between tonal and atonal, and it carries echoes of the styles of other modern masters of the orchestra, from Khachaturian to a range of French composers. Arabic influence on the music is claimed in the liner notes, but it's far from obvious, and the music, even in vigorous short pieces like the Danse pour orchestra, "Danse des aigles" (Dance of the Eagles), Op. 9, is about large-scale orchestral textures rather than manipulations of melody and mode. El-Khoury has worked as a composer of film scores in France, and the music here is episodic in the manner of film music. This 1983 recording by the Orchestre Colonne under Pierre Dervaux fares better sonically in CD reissue than do most other releases of this period, but it will be of interest mostly to listeners who specialize in music with links to the periphery of the European concert tradition.

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.

L’Oratorio de Noël de Bach

Encore lui ! Chaque fin d’année, c’est simple : l’Oratorio de Noël (BWV 248) de J. S. Bach est indétrônable. Au vu du nombre de concerts, mais aussi d’enregistrements, aucune autre œuvre sacrée n’a atteint un tel niveau de popularité et de diffusion. Trois cents ans après, Qobuz revient sur la genèse d’une des œuvres les plus connues du compositeur allemand.

Bernard Haitink, prophète en son pays

Le grand chef d’orchestre néerlandais nous a quittés le 21 octobre 2021 à l’âge vénérable de 92 ans. Reconnu par ses pairs et dans son pays dès sa jeunesse, Bernard Haitink accomplira la majeure partie de son immense carrière aux Pays-Bas, d’abord à la tête de l’Orchestre de la Radio néerlandaise puis du prestigieux Concertgebouw d’Amsterdam pendant vingt-sept ans, avec lequel il enregistrera de nombreux disques devenus légendaires.
