Following the success of his first Decca release of solo piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Ravel, Benjamin Grosvenor demonstrates his aptitude in the concerto repertoire on his second CD, Rhapsody in Blue, recorded with James Judd and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. This is a refreshing change from the usual Tchaikovsky or Rachmaninov concertos one hears from young artists eager to impress, and Grosvenor is clever enough to play not only engaging concertos by Saint-Saëns, Ravel, and Gershwin, but to toss in short bon-bons by these composers to sweeten the program. Grosvenor has sometimes described as a Romantic pianist, which suggests anything from excessive sentimentality to headstrong individualism, but this is something of an exaggeration. It is true that Grosvenor has the passion and expressive grandeur for music of the period, notably displayed in Saint-Saëns' grandiose Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, but he also possesses a modern sensibility that is ideal for the lighter textures and piquant expressions found in Ravel's effervescent Piano Concerto in G major and Gershwin's insouciant Rhapsody in Blue (performed here in the original jazz band version arranged by Ferde Grofé). Grosvenor is much more rounded in his tastes and abilities than may be apparent from reviews, but given time, his judgment in programming will be as obvious as his prodigious skills at the keyboard. Decca's reproduction is close-up and vivid, so the piano has real presence, and its volume almost eclipses the orchestra at times.

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.

Max Richter, l’activiste du néo-classique

Avec la sortie de son nouvel album Exiles, une réflexion sur l’exil menée avec le Baltic Sea Orchestra, l’iconoclaste et prolifique pionnier du courant néo-classique Max Richter se positionne une nouvelle fois comme un des artistes les plus engagés toutes scènes musicales confondues. Reliant musiques classique et électroniques, mondes physique et sensible, rarement un artiste aura produit de la musique instrumentale aussi évocatrice.

Bruno Walter, souvenirs d’un esprit disparu

Écouter les enregistrements de Bruno Walter à la lumière des splendides remastérisations publiées par Sony Classical, c’est s’abreuver à une culture humaniste. Immense chef d’orchestre, la musique est pour lui un sacerdoce, un art de vivre et un art de penser. Ses enregistrements ont conservé son art du chant, intense mais jamais sentimental, grâce à une ligne claire animée d’un rythme souple, assurant clarté, cohérence et vitalité.
