The still relatively new and wholly flexible Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective continues its rigorous schedule with an album of rarely heard chamber works by Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn. Collective co-founder and pianist Tom Poster is the main attraction in Felix's Piano Sextet, Op. 110, from 1824. The piano is heavily featured here, leaving many to consider this work a chamber concerto, with the strings, including a bass and doubled viola rather than violin, in an almost accompaniment role. While the Sextet is a rarity among Felix's oeuvre, what will likely draw many listeners to this album -- besides the growing reputation of the Collective and its members -- are the two works from Fanny. Her Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 11, was written between 1846 and 1847 and was not published or performed until after her untimely death at age 41. The performance offered here by Poster, with Collective co-founder and violinist Elena Urioste and rising star cellist Laura van der Heijden, is precise and exciting, especially in the energetic Allegro molto vivace first movement. While the Trio displays the full maturity of style and the culmination of Fanny's compositional life, the Piano Quartet in A flat major is an early attempt at chamber music writing from Fanny that would eventually be left unfinished. Possibly written as an attempt at equaling the piano quartets her younger brother Felix was writing at that time, it is a rather unremarkable work, with flashes of ingenuity, especially in the piano part, but leaving little wonder as to why it is not more common. However, the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective, with violist Rosalind Ventris joining the musicians for the Trio (Ventris also appears on the Sextet), offers a quality performance worthy of a listen. Chandos delivers ideal sound from Potton Hall in Suffolk for all three ensemble combinations.

Les Grands Angles...
Clara Schumann, entre artiste et épouse

Pianiste la plus renommée de son siècle, enfant prodige, compositrice, pédagogue… Elle reste surtout connue comme « la femme de Robert Schumann ». Avec sa musicalité et sa virtuosité sans précédents, Clara Schumann a ouvert une nouvelle ère et compte aujourd’hui parmi les plus grandes représentantes du romantisme. Et pourtant, ses œuvres sont toujours nettement moins mises en lumière que celles de ses contemporains, et en particulier de son époux. Jetons un œil sur la vie et l’œuvre de Clara Wieck/Schumann, artiste et compositrice qui était aussi une femme en avance sur son temps.

Le violon en 10 interprètes, épisode 2

Si le timbre et l’ambitus du violoncelle le rapprochent de la voix humaine, les aigus stratosphériques du violon flirtent avec les dieux. L’instrument a inspiré des œuvres nombreuses à la discographie pléthorique : des trésors qui sont autant de versions de référence. Voici la seconde partie de cette sélection subjective de 10 violonistes qui met en lumière deux générations éloignées : la première est née pendant le premier tiers du XXe siècle ; la seconde pendant le dernier tiers.

François Couperin, le clavecin moderne

Favori de Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) était la vedette du clavecin au XVIIIe siècle, un instrument prestigieux qui connaissait alors son apogée (avant de retourner dans l’ombre au siècle suivant) et dont il a révolutionné l’approche, entraînant dans son sillon les autres virtuoses de l’époque, Dandrieu ou Rameau. Le claveciniste québécois Olivier Fortin revient pour Qobuz sur la destinée de « Couperin le Grand ».
