If you dipped into the music at random, you might guess that Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds shares the minimalist style of many of his Baltic contemporaries. There are sparse, limpid passages, but elsewhere he is lush, with dense multipart textures that push the limits of tonality. Esenvalds deploys various languages in the service of texts that he, with some effort, devises himself: the final Passion and Resurrection here is not a setting of a preexisting religious text, but consists, somewhat in the manner of John Rutter, of texts assembled from various sources by the composer himself. All the variations in musical language are deployed in the service of the texts, which may be quite unusual. Some may feel that Esenvalds' method works better in smaller works, where the unusual quality of his text selection is vividly illustrated, than in the Passion setting. For this, the first recording of the composer's works in North America (it's indicative of his success that the album has been commercially successful in Britain as well), the performers choose a work with North American material: a Navajo origin story, condensed by Esenvalds himself. Both this and the Sami-inspired Rivers of Light consist mostly of prose, but Esenvalds' musical language is so flexible that the effect is highly poetic. Sample Rivers of Light, whose text also gives the album its Doors of Heaven title. The X factor here is the strong, enthusiastic performance by the Portland State Chamber Choir and soloists, with instruments, under conductor Ethan Sperry, who has won praise locally for adventurous programming. The student singers respond by punching above their weight vocally, and this is surely an ensemble to watch on the U.S. West Coast. The sound, recorded at Portland's St. Stephen's Catholic Church, is not quite equal to the extremely quiet opening of Rivers of Light, but the effect comes through.

El peregrinaje de Gardiner a través de las cantatas de Bach

John Eliot Gardiner creció bajo uno de los dos auténticos retratos de Johann Sebastian Bach que sus padres habían guardado celosamente, escondiéndolo en su granja en Dorset durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Convertido en uno de los «popes» de la música barroca, la total devoción de Gardiner por Bach ha concebido un emocionante libro, La música en el castillo del cielo, publicada en francés por Flammarion y en español por Acantilado. «¿Cómo pudo crear una obra tan sublime un hombre tan común y opaco?», se pregunta Gardiner en un libro lleno de ternura y de una rara erudición, que no es una nueva biografía del compositor alemán, sino la suma de su propia experiencia como intérprete, que le va dictando diversas consideraciones estéticas, y la de un análisis sensible de los fundamentos armónicos, contrapuntísticos y polifónicos de su obra. Un exitoso intento de descubrir al hombre a través de su música.

Gounod romántico y místico

Artesano mayor de la renovación de la música francesa durante la segunda mitad del siglo XIX junto con su predecesor, Berlioz, al que admiraba, y sus discípulos, Bizet, Saint-Saëns y Massenet que veneraban su fe en el Arte, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), místico y seductor, romántico en pos de un nuevo clasicismo, debe su renombre a unas obras maestras que, sin embargo, reducen su envergadura. Una discografía en pleno auge nos permite descubrir la diversidad de su música: instrumental, vocal, sacra y lírica.
