For his performances of Bach's so-called Lutheran masses, short mass settings of just Kyrie and Gloria, the version of the choral group the Sixteen delivered by conductor Harry Christophers really ought to be called the Eight. Christophers moves in the direction of the popular one-voice-per-part performance concept for Bach but does not fully embrace it; instead there are two voices per part, with the soloists drawn from the ranks of the choir. It's a reasonable compromise, and it does bring out a considerable amount of instrumental detail. In something like the big opening chorus of the Cantata No. 79, "Gott der Herr ist Sonn' und Schild" (BWV 79), the choir represents a dramatic fall-off in dynamics, but Christophers generally gets a surprisingly full sound out of his choristers. That cantata is included because, as on the first volume of the Sixteen's pair devoted to the Lutheran masses, it was raided by Bach for material. Most of the music in the Lutheran masses is recycled, which may account for their comparative lack of popularity, but to downgrade them is to misunderstand Bach's musical world, and there's considerable interest in the way German-language cantata texts were adapted for this remnant of Catholic ritual. Christophers is not a Bach conductor on the level of Suzuki or John Eliot Gardiner, and there can be a sweetness that grates. But both the overall concept and the execution are solid, and the soloists, with male altos, are generally impressive. Fans of the Sixteen may well wish to check out this new direction in the popular group's career.

Le pèlerinage de Gardiner à travers les Cantates de Bach

John Eliot Gardiner a grandi sous un des deux portraits authentiques de Johann Sebastian Bach que ses parents avaient jalousement gardé, en le cachant dans leur ferme du Dorset pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Devenu l’un des « papes » de la musique baroque, la dévotion totale de Gardiner à Bach a produit un ouvrage passionnant, Musique au château du ciel, paru en français chez Flammarion. « Comment une œuvre aussi sublime a-t-elle pu jaillir d’un homme aussi ordinaire et si opaque », se demande Gardiner dans un ouvrage empli de tendresse et d’une rare érudition, qui n’est pas une nouvelle biographie du compositeur allemand, mais la somme de sa propre expérience d’interprète lui dictant des considérations esthétiques et une analyse sensible des fondements harmoniques, contrapuntiques et polyphoniques de son œuvre. Une tentative réussie de découvrir l’homme à travers sa musique.

Erased Tapes, un label pas si classique

Dès sa création en 2007, Erased Tapes s’est imposé comme un des labels les plus innovants des quinze dernières années, tout en rencontrant le succès auprès du public. Parfois trop vite réduit à sa vitrine néoclassique (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), le label basé à Londres mène des explorations aux confins de l’ambient, l’electronica et l’expérimental à travers un catalogue mené de manière harmonieuse par l’Allemand Robert Raths, que Qobuz vous propose d’explorer.

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.
