This is said to be the last recording by British cellist David Watkin, who is moving to conducting due to a muscle problem. It should deeply satisfy the player's British fan base and go beyond that, for it's a fine recording of the much-played Bach Suites for solo cello. The unusual historical instruments will get attention: a 1660 instrument by Francesco Ruggieri, and, for the Suite No. 6 in D major for solo cello, BWV 1012, an extremely rare five-string Amati cello from 1600. The set is worth the time and money for the utter strangeness (and Watkin's confidence in strange surroundings) of this performance, which has the flavor of some arcane yet deeply human wisdom imparted from the distant past. The rest of the suites are also more of the 17th century than of the 18th: Watkin's playing is rhetorical, as if the cello was embodying utterances in some hidden language. It is seemingly spontaneous yet well controlled, and it is intimate in a way that big concert-hall performance cannot be. There are some unusual tempos in the set, all backed up by reasonable even if not definitive evidence, but the overall conception is the most important novelty. The Resonus label backs Watkin up with engineering in a small chapel that fits the slightly antique tone. If this is Watkin's swan song on the cello, it's a fine one.

Descriptif de l'album

This is said to be the last recording by British cellist David Watkin, who is moving to conducting due to a muscle problem. It should deeply satisfy the player's British fan base and go beyond that, for it's a fine recording of the much-played Bach Suites for solo cello. The unusual historical instruments will get attention: a 1660 instrument by Francesco Ruggieri, and, for the Suite No. 6 in D major for solo cello, BWV 1012, an extremely rare five-string Amati cello from 1600. The set is worth the time and money for the utter strangeness (and Watkin's confidence in strange surroundings) of this performance, which has the flavor of some arcane yet deeply human wisdom imparted from the distant past. The rest of the suites are also more of the 17th century than of the 18th: Watkin's playing is rhetorical, as if the cello was embodying utterances in some hidden language. It is seemingly spontaneous yet well controlled, and it is intimate in a way that big concert-hall performance cannot be. There are some unusual tempos in the set, all backed up by reasonable even if not definitive evidence, but the overall conception is the most important novelty. The Resonus label backs Watkin up with engineering in a small chapel that fits the slightly antique tone. If this is Watkin's swan song on the cello, it's a fine one.

Danny Elfman en dix albums

Entre féerie et humour déjanté, grandiose et douceur bienveillante, Danny Elfman a bâti en près de quarante ans un style très personnel et bigarré, qu’il distille dans des productions hollywoodiennes éclectiques, signées notamment Tim Burton ou Gus Van Sant. À l’occasion d’un week-end qui lui est consacré à la Philharmonie de Paris, retour sur dix albums essentiels de sa discographie.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho, l’histoire de la musique est jalonnée par des figures de femmes qui ont « osé » écrire de la musique. La création serait l’apanage des hommes ? Notre musée sonore compte en effet plus de compositeurs, connus et reconnus, que de compositrices. Pourtant, leurs œuvres ne sont pas moins passionnantes et il n’y a aucune raison de les considérer comme des objets de second ordre ni de les ignorer. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Wilhelm Kempff, le plus humain des pianistes

Artiste d’un autre temps, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) croyait à l’inspiration : il était entré en musique comme on entre en religion, avec une ferveur respectueuse pour les vieux maîtres qu’il servait. Avec son toucher de velours, son sens du phrasé et sa diction de conteur, l’art de Wilhelm Kempff était celui d’un rêveur éveillé, mi-poète, mi-devin, dans une époque où l’expression du sentiment primait sur tout. Il a souvent enregistré à plusieurs reprises ses compositeurs préférés, en particulier son dieu Beethoven, avec lequel on l’a si souvent identifié, laissant trois intégrales des sonates au fur et à mesure de sa propre maturation et de l’évolution des techniques d’enregistrement.
