Opera or oratorio? The question has remained unanswered since the disastrous creation of Semele in Covent Garden in 1744. Attacked by both opera critics and devotees, both parties accusing him of turning theatres into temples by playing his oratorios, Handel was no longer popular in the British capital. In doing so, he reconnected with Greek mythology through Ovid and his librettists in a work intended to satisfy both sides.


Semele contains several large passages, including a splendid quartet in the first act, which was extremely rare at the time. But it was a complete failure and the new work was on display only for four short evenings. John Eliot Gardiner first recorded Semele at the beginning of the 80s for Erato Records, to varying degrees of success. He revisited the work in 2019 for a series of concerts given in Paris, Barcelona, Milan (La Scala), Rome and London, where the new version was recorded on 2nd May 2019.


Gardiner sets the record straight in a way with this recording that does full justice to this hybrid work thanks to excellent soloists, starting with soprano Louise Alder in the title role. His great sensitivity, the rich palette of vocal colours and the touching expressiveness are all incredibly admirable. The protagonists surrounding him, mezzo-soprano Lucile Richardot, tenor Hugo Hymas, countertenor Carlo Vistoli, bass Gianluca Buratto and a few soloists from the choir, complete a coherent and flawless cast. As an untiring discoverer of new voices, Sir John Eliot Gardiner gives a beautiful impetus to this work. The Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists are as sparkling as ever. © François Hudry/Qobuz

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.

Las sinfonías electrónicas de Mason Bates

¿Cómo? No conocen (todavía) a Mason Bates? Se trata sin embargo de uno de los nombres más presentes en la escena norteamericana. Nacido en 1977, Bates es a la vez compositor, sinfonista y lírico, y DJ de música electrónica (utilizando el alias de DJ Masonic) – dos polos aparentemente opuestos que, sin embargo, mezcla con placentera socarronería. Así, la mitad más o menos de su obra sinfónica y lírica incluye, de una manera u otra, sonoridades electrónicas, en su mayoría sonidos «cotidianos», pre-grabados y restituidos en tiempo real a medida de la partitura. Aprovechando la creación de su genial ópera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz entrevistó a este personaje fuera de serie.

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.
