Darius Milhaud's musical encounter with Aeschylus' classic Oresteia trilogy consists not of a single work, but of three pieces of different natures written early in the composer's career. They are not unrelated, however. Milhaud worked with the same collaborator, poet Paul Claudel, and his text-centered setting persists through all three works. The first play, Agamemnon, is represented only by a single large scene, set for soprano, chorus, and orchestra. Les Choéphores (The Libation Bearers) includes a larger chunk of the second play, with an unusual orchestra including 15 percussionists and an odd sort of rhythmic speech. The final play, Les Euménides (The Furies), is a full-scale opera in itself and occupies two thirds of the three-CD set here. Completed in 1923, it has more of the style for which Milhaud is known, with Brazilian influences, but it still doesn't really sound like Milhaud. The earlier pieces are more traditional in nature, but the music also has an experimental side. Its orchestra is massive, with four saxophones and four saxhorns. Recordings like this, with a varied set of forces involving hundreds of musicians and singers, are increasingly difficult to make, and such projects increasingly find a home at large American music schools where multiple programs can be brought to bear. This concert performance of the whole was made in spring 2013 at the University of Michigan, benefiting from the superior acoustics of the school's Hill Auditorium. The young soloists shine, but the real standout is the University of Michigan Percussion Ensemble, a special strength at the school. Kudos go to conductor Kenneth Kiesler for holding together an inherently unwieldy project and maintaining the imposing tone Milhaud seems to have had in mind. Recommended for Milhaud buffs.

Suzanne Danco, une soprano sincère et sensible

Disparue en août 2000, la cantatrice belge Suzanne Danco reste bien vivante dans le souvenir des mélomanes à la faveur de nombreuses rééditions, dont le superbe coffret de 8 disques publié par Decca Eloquence Australie. Mozartienne accomplie, la soprano belge fit les beaux jours du Festival d’Aix-en-Provence dès ses débuts en 1948, avant d’enregistrer des versions de référence de Shéhérazade de Ravel avec Ansermet, qui la demandait sans cesse pour toute une série de disques essentiels. Ayant eu la chance de la connaître de très près, l’auteur décrira donc l’artiste comme une amie chère.

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.

Bernard Haitink, prophète en son pays

Le grand chef d’orchestre néerlandais nous a quittés le 21 octobre 2021 à l’âge vénérable de 92 ans. Reconnu par ses pairs et dans son pays dès sa jeunesse, Bernard Haitink accomplira la majeure partie de son immense carrière aux Pays-Bas, d’abord à la tête de l’Orchestre de la Radio néerlandaise puis du prestigieux Concertgebouw d’Amsterdam pendant vingt-sept ans, avec lequel il enregistrera de nombreux disques devenus légendaires.
