The garden variety of orchestral pops music, whether it's Gershwin or hip-hop that's involved, grafts the orchestra onto the basic popular material. The music of California composer Mason Bates starts from the opposite premise: the music, in Bates' own words, offers "an expanded symphonic palette." Bates, who has been active in the worlds of both classical composition and electronic laptop dance performance, adds electronic components to a sound world rooted in the early 20th century: The B-Sides, which pays tribute in its final movement to the warehouse parties that were incubators of Detroit techno music, started life as a response to Schoenberg's Five Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 16. Two exciting developments emerge from Bates' decision. First, he finds that attaching the electronics to the orchestra in this way does not make them subordinate: the pictorial vocabulary of the music is expanded in such a way that the music leaves you with thoroughly contemporary images that wouldn't have occurred without the electronics. Sample "Glaciers Calving" (track six), the first movement of the four-movement Liquid Interface, which Bates considers a kind of symphony: the disturbing picture of glaciers destroyed by global warming might have been possible to realize with the orchestra alone, but would not have had the same resonance. Second, Bates avoids the trap of creating a novelty encounter between orchestral music and electronica. His stylistic choices broaden out into jazz, progressive rock, southeast Asian ensemble music, hip-hop, and more. Here he is really in the realm of the DJ, where the entire musical world is available, and his merging of this outlook into a consistent orchestral framework is really quite remarkable. The works here were commissioned by various orchestras, but were brought together by San Francisco Symphony conductor Michael Tilson Thomas in a series of live 2014 concerts, recorded here with very little crowd noise and just enough applause to remind you of what you're dealing with. The absolute commitment to the music of Tilson Thomas, still breaking new ground as he approaches éminence grise status, is inspiring; the optimism generated by Bates' new stylistic fusion is deep.

Berlioz, la Fantastique en 10 versions

Véritable manifeste de l’émergence du romantisme français, la “Symphonie fantastique” de Berlioz aura marqué le XIXe siècle comme le “Sacre du printemps” de Stravinsky marquera le suivant. Créés à Paris, autrefois creuset mondial de l’effervescence artistique, ces deux chefs-d’œuvre ont fait basculer durablement le langage musical dans une autre dimension. Le 5 décembre 1830, l’œuvre révolutionnaire d’un Hector Berlioz de 27 ans émeut les musiciens présents dans la petite salle de l’ancien conservatoire, parmi lesquels Meyerbeer et Liszt, vivement impressionnés par l’extraordinaire audace de cet ouvrage présenté trois ans seulement après la mort de Beethoven.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho en passant par Clara Schumann, plusieurs femmes ont su déjouer les codes machistes du milieu pour passer à la composition. Si le paysage de la musique classique a largement été dominé par les hommes ces derniers siècles, les œuvres de leurs consœurs, pionnières ou contemporaines, sont tout aussi passionnantes. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

Le paradoxe du studio d’Esa-Pekka Salonen

Le Finlandais Esa-Pekka Salonen est un chef d’orchestre acclamé et un compositeur prolifique. Avec plus de 60 disques au compteur, il a fait évoluer l’histoire de l’interprétation. Dialogue avec un musicien exceptionnel qui évoque pour Qobuz son travail en studio et son rapport à l’enregistrement.
