There are two sides to the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff. There's the lush melodist who took Russian Romanticism well into the middle of the 20th century and compelled attention even as other composers were going in wholly different directions, and, though it's less recognized, there's the technician. The master orchestrator who rivaled Tchaikovsky in sustaining a musical arc over vast periods and in the variety of devices he used to do so. It is too simple to say that "Russian" Rachmaninoff emphasizes the first, and "British" Rachmaninoff the second, but it's accurate enough for Sir Simon Rattle, who has conducted a lot of Rachmaninoff and has already recorded the Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27 twice, once on video. Those who love Rachmaninoff for the big tunes and heavily nostalgic chains of suspensions might look elsewhere, perhaps to an oldie-but-goodie recording of the work by these same forces, the London Symphony Orchestra, led by Gennady Rozhdestvensky. However, the inner workings of the symphony have rarely been as clearly defined as they are here. Listen to the slow movement, which won't make one cry but which sustains its long line superbly. Feasibly, this is a result of the fact that Rattle conducted the work from memory; more likely, it's just general familiarity and a satisfying feeling of delving deeply into this work that is still hard to pin down, despite its supposed accessibility. The performance was spliced together from two live LSO evenings, and the orchestra's engineering team has captured Rattle's carefully wrought balances and his subtly ominous rumblings of the double basses at the beginning very well.

Sibelius : 10 moments clés de la discographie

La discographie du compositeur finlandais Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) est d’une grande richesse, et surtout d’une exceptionnelle qualité et diversité. Qobuz vous en propose un tour d’horizon en mettant l’accent sur 10 moments particulièrement significatifs.

Le Chant de la Terre : Gustav Mahler et l’Ailleurs

Qu’est-ce qui a pu pousser Gustav Mahler, en 1907-1908, à composer une œuvre aussi inclassable que celle-ci ? Écrit à un moment charnière dans la vie de Mahler, Le Chant de la Terre occupe une place à part dans son œuvre et marie l’esprit « fin de siècle » à la fascination pour l’exotisme qui grandissait à l’époque chez ses contemporains. À Vienne, l’heure était alors aux turbulences, et cette pièce qui oscille entre adieu et nouveau départ mérite un examen plus attentif.

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.
