In 2013, acclaimed Australian composer Ben Frost directed and composed a theatrical adaptation of The Wasp Factory, an infamous 1984 novel by Scottish author Iain Banks. The story is told from the point of view of Frank, a psychopathic, misogynistic teenager who lives on a small island. He routinely performs rituals that involve murdering small animals, and he has also killed three children, including his own brother. He often proclaims "My greatest enemies are women and the sea." As manic as Frank seems, his brother Eric is even crazier. An escapee from a mental institution, he kills and eats dogs, and never sleeps. He sporadically telephones Frank, and he often ends up screaming at him. Frost, a master of dark, apocalyptic sound design, is a perfect match to compose an opera based on such a grim and harrowing tale. The recorded version, released in late 2016 by Frost's longtime home, Bedroom Community, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with the Reykjavik Sinfonia, arranged by Daníel Bjarnason, Nico Muhly, Petter Ekman, and Frost himself. In an intriguing twist, Frank's psychotic thoughts are delivered by three women: Jördis Richter, Lieselot De Wilde, and Mariam Wallentin (of Wildbirds & Peacedrums). The strings swirl, swell, and sometimes attack, and are matched with occasional well-timed washes of intense feedback. The album isn't nearly as harsh and punishing as Frost's previous album, the brilliant A U R O R A, but it's nearly as arresting. For all the violence and carnage, there's an abundance of oddly poignant and tender moments, in between the fits of rage and destruction. Grotesque and shocking, The Wasp Factory is nevertheless a truly fascinating work. ~ Paul Simpson

Orfeo Orchestra, le chaînon manquant du XVIIIe siècle français

Très actif dans la musique baroque française depuis ses premières parutions au début des années 90, l'Orfeo Orchestra, dirigé par György Vashegyi, a été, ces dernières années, distingué par le Palazzetto Bru Zane et surtout le Centre de musique baroque de Versailles pour sa série d'explorations discographiques ambitieuses du répertoire lyrique français – baroque et classique.

Herbert von Karajan et les grands maîtres du classique

Trente ans après sa mort, l’Autrichien Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 - Anif 1989) incarne toujours la figure du chef d’orchestre. À la tête de l’orchestre philharmonique de Berlin, qu’il a élevé au rang de marque mondiale pendant presque trente-cinq ans (1955-1989), il a méthodiquement réenregistré le cœur de son répertoire : Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Verdi, Wagner, Strauss…

Le pèlerinage de Gardiner à travers les Cantates de Bach

John Eliot Gardiner a grandi sous un des deux portraits authentiques de Johann Sebastian Bach que ses parents avaient jalousement gardé, en le cachant dans leur ferme du Dorset pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Devenu l’un des « papes » de la musique baroque, la dévotion totale de Gardiner à Bach a produit un ouvrage passionnant, Musique au château du ciel, paru en français chez Flammarion. « Comment une œuvre aussi sublime a-t-elle pu jaillir d’un homme aussi ordinaire et si opaque », se demande Gardiner dans un ouvrage empli de tendresse et d’une rare érudition, qui n’est pas une nouvelle biographie du compositeur allemand, mais la somme de sa propre expérience d’interprète lui dictant des considérations esthétiques et une analyse sensible des fondements harmoniques, contrapuntiques et polyphoniques de son œuvre. Une tentative réussie de découvrir l’homme à travers sa musique.
