Désormais propulsée au statut de star du baroque, la claveciniste devenue chef, Emmanuelle Haïm, enchaîne les succès. Son nouvel enregistrement de l’archi-célèbre et archi-enregistré Messie de Haendel entrera sans doute dans la catégorie des succès en question ; naturellement, de nos jours, on enregistre l’une des versions originales — Dublin 1742 ou Londres 1743 —, et non plus les mammouths concoctés au XIXe siècle avec grand orchestre philharmonique tels que les livraient les orchestres jusque dans les années 50 — les versions les plus explosives étant alors celle de Ebenezer Prout et celle d’Eugene Goossens, carrément berliozienne. Emmanuelle Haïm fait appel non pas à une contralto mais à un contreténor, Tim Mead en l’occurrence, pour les interventions d’alto. Le chœur est maintenu à une taille réservée, le Concert d’Astrée joue sur instruments d’époque selon les techniques du temps, mais avec un swing et une vivacité de tous les instants. Serait-ce là une nouvelle « version de référence » ? (MT)



" Tim Mead cumule toutes les qualités du "contre-ténor" anglais" (idiomatisme, voix diaphane) sans en avoir les défauts (manque d'homogénéité des registres, préciosité). Christopher Purves, on s'en serait douté, excelle dans "The trumpet shall sound" : autorité, force de caractère, tout y est. La grande gagnante est bien sûr Emmanuelle Haïm, qui réalise un travail d'orfèvre à la tête de son Concert d'Astrée. " (Classica, décembre 2014 / Jérémie Bigorie)

Strauss & Kempe : des affinités électives

Le nom du chef Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) est indissociable de ceux du compositeur Richard Strauss et de l’orchestre de la Staatskapelle de Dresde. À l’occasion de la réédition par Warner des enregistrements réalisés entre 1970 et 1975, Qobuz met en lumière, entre autres, le legs straussien d’un chef à la direction précise, souvent incisive, toujours soucieuse du texte et sensible à ses voluptés.

Orfeo Orchestra, le chaînon manquant du XVIIIe siècle français

Très actif dans la musique baroque française depuis ses premières parutions au début des années 90, l'Orfeo Orchestra, dirigé par György Vashegyi, a été, ces dernières années, distingué par le Palazzetto Bru Zane et surtout le Centre de musique baroque de Versailles pour sa série d'explorations discographiques ambitieuses du répertoire lyrique français – baroque et classique.

Alpha : vingt ans, dix moments

Depuis les débuts de Qobuz en 2008, Alpha est un de nos labels favoris pour son exigence artistique, la qualité régulière de ses productions, ses propositions de répertoires parfois audacieuses et la qualité de ses livrets. On ne pouvait donc manquer le 20e anniversaire de la maison. Voici quelques pistes pour découvrir la richesse de cet étonnant catalogue.
