Il est difficile d’imaginer la stupeur ressentie par les mélomanes anglais en découvrant la voix d’Alfred Deller au sortir de la guerre. À cette époque, la voix de contre-ténor avait disparu depuis plus de deux siècles, engloutissant dans le même oubli tout un répertoire. Surgie soudainement du passé, cette voix magique semblait presque surnaturelle. Elle était aussi celle d'un musicien exceptionnel, d'une expressivité naturelle qui savait toucher le cœur, toujours dans le respect du texte.
Un public plus large va découvrir l’art d’Alfred Deller dès la fin des années 1960 avec l’entrée du chanteur et de son ensemble dans le catalogue du label harmonia mundi. C’est à la suite d’un concert du Deller Consort en Avignon en 1967, que Bernard Coutaz, le fondateur du célèbre label français, propose une collaboration à Alfred Deller. Les deux hommes sympathisent aussitôt et leur collaboration débute peu après avec un premier récital consacré à des madrigaux et des pièces sacrées de Carlo Gesualdo.
L’achat par Deller d’une vieille ferme dans le Lubéron vient renforcer cette amitié avec la fondation d’une académie de musique ancienne (une des premières en France) dans la merveilleuse abbaye de Sénanque et à Lacoste – avec le soutien d’harmonia mundi. Dans la dernière partie de sa carrière, Alfred Deller va donc pouvoir graver, dans d’excellentes conditions sonores et techniques, les œuvres majeures de Purcell qu’il chantera et dirigera.
À soixante-cinq ans passés, Alfred Deller donne le meilleur de lui-même dans ses ultimes enregistrements interrompus par sa mort subite, à la suite d’une crise cardiaque survenue au cours d’une tournée, le 16 juillet 1979 à Bologne.
Ce célèbre legs purcellien reparaît aujourd’hui sous la forme d’un coffret « collector » de sept CD ou dans une luxueuse version en cinq vinyles en édition limitée et en cinq CD pour la version numérique. Qobuz vous les propose dans une édition Hi-Res Audio d’une grande qualité sonore, sous le titre générique « The Voice of Purcell » — compositeur de prédilection jamais quitté — à l’occasion des quarante ans de la disparition d’Alfred Deller, après un méticuleux travail de remastérisation d’après les bandes originales qui redonne toute leur splendeur aux prises de son. Des références reprenant chacun des LP originaux existent aussi par ailleurs, également en Hi-Res. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Descriptif de l'album

Il est difficile d’imaginer la stupeur ressentie par les mélomanes anglais en découvrant la voix d’Alfred Deller au sortir de la guerre. À cette époque, la voix de contre-ténor avait disparu depuis plus de deux siècles, engloutissant dans le même oubli tout un répertoire. Surgie soudainement du passé, cette voix magique semblait presque surnaturelle. Elle était aussi celle d'un musicien exceptionnel, d'une expressivité naturelle qui savait toucher le cœur, toujours dans le respect du texte.
Un public plus large va découvrir l’art d’Alfred Deller dès la fin des années 1960 avec l’entrée du chanteur et de son ensemble dans le catalogue du label harmonia mundi. C’est à la suite d’un concert du Deller Consort en Avignon en 1967, que Bernard Coutaz, le fondateur du célèbre label français, propose une collaboration à Alfred Deller. Les deux hommes sympathisent aussitôt et leur collaboration débute peu après avec un premier récital consacré à des madrigaux et des pièces sacrées de Carlo Gesualdo.
L’achat par Deller d’une vieille ferme dans le Lubéron vient renforcer cette amitié avec la fondation d’une académie de musique ancienne (une des premières en France) dans la merveilleuse abbaye de Sénanque et à Lacoste – avec le soutien d’harmonia mundi. Dans la dernière partie de sa carrière, Alfred Deller va donc pouvoir graver, dans d’excellentes conditions sonores et techniques, les œuvres majeures de Purcell qu’il chantera et dirigera.
À soixante-cinq ans passés, Alfred Deller donne le meilleur de lui-même dans ses ultimes enregistrements interrompus par sa mort subite, à la suite d’une crise cardiaque survenue au cours d’une tournée, le 16 juillet 1979 à Bologne.
Ce célèbre legs purcellien reparaît aujourd’hui sous la forme d’un coffret « collector » de sept CD ou dans une luxueuse version en cinq vinyles en édition limitée et en cinq CD pour la version numérique. Qobuz vous les propose dans une édition Hi-Res Audio d’une grande qualité sonore, sous le titre générique « The Voice of Purcell » — compositeur de prédilection jamais quitté — à l’occasion des quarante ans de la disparition d’Alfred Deller, après un méticuleux travail de remastérisation d’après les bandes originales qui redonne toute leur splendeur aux prises de son. Des références reprenant chacun des LP originaux existent aussi par ailleurs, également en Hi-Res. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Jordi Savall : la musique, la vie, l'enregistrement

Il pleuvait à seaux en cette nuit d’octobre dans le Bugey, où il pleut d’ailleurs très souvent à cette époque de l’année. Il était autour de minuit. Nous étions une cinquantaine de passionnés à attendre dans le silence, l’humidité et le froid au Festival d’Ambronay. Puis, sans aucun bruit, Jordi Savall est arrivé, sanglé dans un imperméable blanc et trempé, façon Humphrey Bogart dans Casablanca, serrant une caisse en forme de corps humain contre lui. Avec des gestes lents, il en a extrait, non pas une mitraillette, mais une viole de gambe qu’il a commencé à manier et à accorder avec d’infinies précautions. Puis le miracle est descendu sur l’auditoire.
