British trumpet player Alison Balsom has established herself as one of the leading performers on her instrument in the early 21st century. This 2012 album features three modern and contemporary concertos for trumpet. Balsom is phenomenally secure in her technique and in the musicality she brings to each of the pieces. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Renes, and the Scottish Ensemble, led by Jonathan Morton, provide colorful and energetic accompaniment. Bernd Alois Zimmermann's 1954 Trumpet Concerto is the standout work on the album. It is certainly one of the most distinguished, substantial, and immediately appealing trumpet concertos of the 20th century. It is subtitled "Nobody knows de troubles I see," and uses the melody of the spiritual as the basis for its sophisticated musical development. Like many of Zimmermann's works, its themes are political and he changed the title from "seen" to "see" to highlight the ongoing struggle for racial equality throughout the world, with pointed reference to the lingering racist attitudes of National Socialism in post-war Germany. It's an intensely dramatic and inventive piece; Zimmermann interweaves the original spiritual with jazz influences and modernist techniques in a way that's emotionally direct and thoroughly engrossing. Balsom negotiates its extreme demands with complete assurance. The Trumpet Concerto in A flat by Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian, written in 1950, bears the stamp of the Soviet demand that music be immediately entertaining for the proletariat. The concerto is tuneful and uses folk material and for the most part sounds like it could be the soundtrack for an "exotic" adventure film. What it lacks in musical sophistication it makes up for in the opportunities it gives the soloist to really shine melodically. James MacMillan's 2010 concerto Seraph, which Balsom premiered, is an inoffensive but not especially profound work, characterized by pleasant, lyrical note-spinning. EMI's sound is pristine, balanced, and nicely ambient.

Le tour du monde choral de Marcus Creed

Marcus Creed incarne, auprès des auditeurs de chant choral, et davantage encore a cappella, un idéal de constance, d'exigence et d'exploration. Cette série chez Hänssler avec l'Ensemble vocal de la Radio de Stuttgart propose un tour du monde de la musique chorale, des Amériques au Japon en passant par les grandes nations vocales d'Europe.

Alfred Deller, la renaissance d’une voix disparue

Il est difficile d’imaginer la stupeur ressentie par les mélomanes anglais en découvrant Alfred Deller au sortir de la guerre. A cette époque, la voix de contre-ténor avait disparu depuis plus de deux siècles, engloutissant dans le même oubli tout un répertoire. Surgie soudainement du passé, cette voix magique semblait presque surnaturelle. Retour sur la fascinante trajectoire du chanteur britannique décédé en 1979.

Le violon en 10 interprètes, épisode 1

Si le timbre et l’ambitus du violoncelle le rapprochent de la voix humaine, les aigus stratosphériques du violon flirtent avec les dieux. L’instrument a inspiré des œuvres nombreuses à la discographie pléthorique : des trésors qui sont autant de versions de référence. Cette sélection subjective de 10 violonistes choisit de mettre en lumière deux générations éloignées : la première est née pendant le premier tiers du XXe siècle ; la seconde pendant le dernier tiers, à retrouver jeudi.
