80:05 - DDD - Enregistré en mai et août 2012 à Édimbourg et Londres - Notes en français, anglais et allemand avec le texte de la pièce en anglais

  • Info
  • The Starlight Express de Elgar est, en réalité, une musique de scène écrite pour une pièce destinée aux enfants. L'histoire décrit un monde fantastique habité par des enfants qui possèdent une lumière magique. Ladite pièce semble d’une longueur (et d’une fadeur) assez infinie pour n’avoir pas survécu aux injures du temps ; et la musique de Elgar, certes magnifique, colle de trop près à la pièce pour être donnée sans le moindre contenu textuel, d’autant qu’il s’agit assez souvent d’effets sonores orchestraux très courts, comme pour une musique de film. Les producteurs du CD ont donc décidé de réduire le texte à un seul narrateur – en l’occurrence Simon Callow – qui raconte la pièce sans s’attarder dans les détails, tandis que la musique accompagne sous le format du mélodrame. Voilà pour la première partie de l’enregistrement, qui donne l’intégralité de la musique ainsi que la narration. Narration en anglais, on le précise tout de suite, mais le texte est imprimé intégralement dans le livret, de sorte que l’on peut aisément suivre.

        Pour quiconque n’a pas envie de passer l’aspirateur sur son anglais de lycée, le CD réserve sa seconde partie : une Suite concoctée par le chef Andrew Davis, qui reprend les moments saillants de la partition, et les assemble en un tout parfaitement cohérent qui, en réalité, représente une toute nouvelle œuvre majeure de Elgar, à découvrir sans tarder.

        En complément, l’enregistrement propose trois chansons écrites par le compositeur initialement prévu pour Starlight Express, Clive Carey – la guerre avait interrompu la collaboration entre Carey et l’auteur du texte…
