The Chandos series of albums devoted to the solo piano music of Brahms, performed by Irish pianist Barry Douglas, here reaches its fourth volume. Douglas' readings have been substantial and generally well received, and this group of pieces has the virtues of their predecessors in the series. Most notable is the structure of the program: Douglas plays Brahms' smaller pieces not in their original opus-number groupings but as intermezzi between larger works. This makes sense on several different levels, one of them being that some of the short works here are indeed titled Intermezzi. It's not at all clear that Brahms intended groups of short pieces to be plowed through from beginning to end. And, most important of all, the recital concept of Brahms' time was oriented toward mixtures of weightier and smaller pieces. As in the earlier Douglas releases in the series, the pianist handles the mixture well. The overall dimensions are intimate, and the fervent, technically dense quality of the early Piano Sonata No. 1 in C major, Op. 1, comes through very nicely. Of course every note is in place in the two big variation sets that round out the program, but here some may miss a bit of hall-filling excitement. On balance this is a strong addition to Douglas' series, although maybe not the one to start with for those just buying one. Among its virtues is the sound engineering from the West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge; it's ideally suited to both performer and concept.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho en passant par Clara Schumann, plusieurs femmes ont su déjouer les codes machistes du milieu pour passer à la composition. Si le paysage de la musique classique a largement été dominé par les hommes ces derniers siècles, les œuvres de leurs consœurs, pionnières ou contemporaines, sont tout aussi passionnantes. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Picasso & la Musique

Le génie moderniste de Picasso a très vite dépassé le cadre pictural pour irradier la musique et la danse, deux arts avec lesquels le peintre espagnol a toujours entretenu un rapport étroit, allant jusqu’à influencer ses amis compositeurs rencontrés en cours de route.

Les aventures de Christopher Hogwood chez L'Oiseau-Lyre

Disparu en 2014 à Cambridge des suites d’une tumeur au cerveau, Christopher Hogwood fut un des principaux acteurs de l’immense lame de fond provoquée par le mouvement historique qui s’est emparé de la musique baroque et classique à la fin du XXe siècle. En créant son propre ensemble, l’Academy of Ancient Music en 1973, il a jeté les bases d’une nouvelle conception de l’interprétation historiquement informée, mettant à bas les traditions poussiéreuses. Chef d’orchestre, claveciniste, écrivain et musicologue anglais, il laisse un abondant catalogue pour le label L'Oiseau-Lyre, qui a accompagné son remarquable travail de défricheur.
