Fans of the British crown’s splendour will certainly marvel at this double album that reproduces the coronation anthems of the four monarchs of the 20th century: Edward VII in 1902, George V in 1911, George VI in 1937, and current Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Very few of today’s ceremonies can reach such levels of grandeur.


At the crossroads of tradition and innovation, these coronation ceremonies are characterised by the evocation of past heritage works, and the addition of numerous pieces commissioned specifically for the occasion to the best composers in the kingdom. For such events, Westminster Abbey is closed for several months to allow an army of craftsmen to build monumental galleries capable of hosting up to eight thousand guests. Then come the rehearsals with 400-singer choirs, half of them children, an immense orchestra, and the indispensable great organ.


This recording is a selection of the best moments of these ceremonies, presented as a single liturgical structure. This ample reconstitution led by Paul McCreesh follows for the most part the 1937 ceremony, dropping however the era’s typical style when interpreting Handel. The musical approach has changed so much that it is presented here in the “baroque” style characteristic of our early 21st century. Some difficult choices were made, particularly regarding the Te Deum, the centrepiece and climax of the ceremony. A Cornelian choice between the ones from Stanford (1902), Parry (1911), Vaughan Williams (1937) and William Walton (1953). The latter was finally chosen, for its radiance and theatrical impetus. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Jordi Savall – Musik, Leben, Tonaufnahmen

Es regnete in Strömen in jener Oktobernacht im Bugey, was zu dieser Jahreszeit dort häufig vorkommt. Es war Mitternacht. Wir waren ungefähr fünfzig Musikliebhaber, die beim Festival d’Ambronay schweigend in der Feuchtigkeit und in der Kälte warteten. Dann erschien auf einmal Jordi Savall, lautlos, in einen weißen, nassen Trenchcoat gehüllt, wie Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, einen Kasten in Form eines menschliche Körpers an sich gedrückt. Mit langsamen Bewegungen holte er, nein, kein Maschinengewehr, sondern eine Viola da Gamba hervor, die er mit größter Umsicht behandelte, und begann, sie zu stimmen. Dann geschah im Publikum das Wunder.

Bruno Walter, Erinnerungen an ein Genie

Die großartigen Remastering-Versionen der Aufnahmen von Bruno Walter anzuhören, die bei Sony Classical erschienen sind, bedeutet in humanistischer Kultur zu schwelgen. Für den überragenden Dirigenten war Musik ein heiliges Amt, Lebenskunst, Philosophie. Die Aufnahmen bezeugen seine Kunst der Kantilene, ausdrucksstark aber nie sentimental, dank klarer Linien und geschmeidiger Rhythmen voll Klarheit, Kohärenz und Vitalität.
