Presented with the idea of a West Coast West Side Story, you might imagine some kind of unorthodox interpretation, but in fact this 2013 production, recorded live (and recorded very well indeed) for the San Francisco Symphony's in-house label falls squarely into traditions laid down by the work's composer, Leonard Bernstein. This is not to say that conductor Michael Tilson Thomas follows Bernstein's own recording of the Romeo and Juliet tale of the Sharks and the Jets, which had a heavily operatic tinge: this is a Broadway-style recording, not an operatic one, and the vocal qualities of Cheyenne Jackson as Tony and Alexandra Silber as Maria are not too far from those in the hit soundtrack recording of the 1960s. Instead, it is Bernstein the composer who is the star of Tilson Thomas' show. Unlike the works of other Broadway composers who wrote tunes and left assistants to fill in conventional orchestration, Bernstein often made the orchestra a key partner in the action, and Tilson Thomas captures such details as the small keyboard line in "Maria" (perhaps a celesta) that is swallowed up in live performances and recordings. Tilson Thomas, like Bernstein, is comfortable with the variety of pop rhythms in the show, and the end result is a recording that really represents the best of both worlds. Highly recommended.

Le Chant de la Terre : Gustav Mahler et l’Ailleurs

Qu’est-ce qui a pu pousser Gustav Mahler, en 1907-1908, à composer une œuvre aussi inclassable que celle-ci ? Écrit à un moment charnière dans la vie de Mahler, Le Chant de la Terre occupe une place à part dans son œuvre et marie l’esprit « fin de siècle » à la fascination pour l’exotisme qui grandissait à l’époque chez ses contemporains. À Vienne, l’heure était alors aux turbulences, et cette pièce qui oscille entre adieu et nouveau départ mérite un examen plus attentif.

Blandine Verlet, les années Philips

En vue du 80e anniversaire de la naissance de Blandine Verlet (disparue en décembre 2018), Universal Music France a réédité l’intégralité des enregistrements que la claveciniste réalisa pour la maison Philips entre 1970 et 1982. Une somme longtemps disparue, rééditée en partie en haute définition, à redécouvrir de toute urgence, notamment pour les prises de son Philips de l’époque, souvent miraculeuses. Universal a autorisé Qobuz à reproduire la longue et détaillée notice de présentation du livret, écrite par notre spécialiste classique.

Marc Ribot, l’anti-guitar hero

Depuis une quarantaine d’années, le nom de Marc Ribot apparaît sur les pochettes d’albums signés Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso et tant d’autres. Et lorsqu’il ne prête pas sa guitare atypique aux plus grands, le New-Yorkais s’amuse, sous son nom, à démonter le rock, le jazz, le funk, la musique cubaine et tout ce qui passe sous ses doigts.
