À propos

Oui, oui, King Arthur de Purcell est bien cet opéra duquel est tiré l’hyper-célèbre « Air du froid », immortalisé par le contre-ténor rock-pop-classique Klaus Nomi – même si dans l’original, le Génie du froid est confié à une voix de basse. Peu importe : ce semi-opéra de 1691 est, de bout en bout, un stupéfiant chef-d’œuvre d’une étonnante modernité. Pour mémoire, le semi-opéra est un genre appartenant au baroque anglais, dans lequel s’alternent des scènes parlées déroulant la pièce proprement dite, et des scènes chantées et instrumentales qui n’appartiennent pas vraiment à l’intrigue, mais procèdent plutôt d’illustrations morales, pastorales ou mythologiques. On y trouve aussi de nombreuses scènes dansées. Rien d’étonnant donc que les scènes chantées n’incorporent aucun des personnages arthuriens eux-mêmes, mais seulement des nymphes, Pan, Cupidon, des prêtres, Éole etc. Lionel Meunier et son ensemble Vox Luminis ont choisi d’étoffer l’orchestration, puisque la partition qui nous est parvenue ne mentionne que les cordes et quelques numéros avec trompettes ; Meunier rajoute des hautbois, des flûtes à bec, un basson, quelques timbales pour les fanfares, tandis que le continuo alterne entre théorbe, orgue et guitare baroque. Loin d’être une trahison, c’est là l’évidente « prise de possession » de la partition qui s’impose puisqu’à l’époque de Purcell déjà, on jouait ces ouvrages avec les instruments disponibles sur le moment. Et l’enrichissement sonore est ici des plus considérables. © SM/Qobuz
