This release by the Boston string orchestra A Far Cry is ecumenical in intent, with a pair of pieces involving Christian spirituality bookending works of Islamic and Jewish origin. It doesn't work particularly well in fulfilling that intention; the works involved are too specific, personal, and even idiosyncratic to be representative of religious traditions, or even of the idea of spirituality itself. The album works better in pieces, however. A Far Cry is a virtuoso group of young string players that can do different kinds of music well, and they sound terrific. The "Heiliger Dankgesang" slow movement of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, Op. 132, has rarely or never been played by a string orchestra previously, and that's a mystery: it loses none of its power this way, unlike the spiky Grosse Fuge, Op. 133. Likewise the "Jewish" work, Osvaldo Golijov's The Dreams & Prayers of Isaac the Blind, one of the pieces that put this Argentine composer on the map when klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer played it with the Kronos Quartet; the arrangement for clarinet and orchestra here, by Golijov himself, if anything heightens the klezmer elements. Perhaps the most interesting pieces is Vecd, a work commissioned by A Far Cry from Turkish American composer Mehmet Ali Sanlikol. This piece draws inspiration from the tradition of the so-called whirling dervishes, but partially replaces Near Eastern elements with American jazz. It's probably going to be very much like nothing you've ever heard before. The album as a whole may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is both original and beautifully executed.

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.

Steve Reich en 10 oeuvres

Steve Reich appartient à ce cercle ultra-restreint de compositeurs qui peuvent se vanter d’avoir durablement changé le visage de la musique contemporaine sur ces cinquante dernières années. Qobuz vous propose une sélection de dix œuvres parmi les plus importantes de son catalogue.

Suzanne Danco, une soprano sincère et sensible

Disparue en août 2000, la cantatrice belge Suzanne Danco reste bien vivante dans le souvenir des mélomanes à la faveur de nombreuses rééditions, dont le superbe coffret de 8 disques publié par Decca Eloquence Australie. Mozartienne accomplie, la soprano belge fit les beaux jours du Festival d’Aix-en-Provence dès ses débuts en 1948, avant d’enregistrer des versions de référence de Shéhérazade de Ravel avec Ansermet, qui la demandait sans cesse pour toute une série de disques essentiels. Ayant eu la chance de la connaître de très près, l’auteur décrira donc l’artiste comme une amie chère.
