Clarinetist Kinan Azmeh has crossed several identity boundaries in his career, it is not only that he is a Western-trained musician with a background in Syrian traditional music. He left Syria in 2000 to study at the Juilliard School in New York, and has found it difficult to return due to the country's deadly civil war. In New York, he has been active as a jazz player as well as in concert music. Moreover, he is both a performer and a composer. Most of these aspects of his background appear in one form or another on this satisfying double album release, where he performs with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin under Manuel Nawri. The first disc is devoted to Azmeh's own compositions, which go well beyond simply providing a vehicle for his own virtuosity. The three works all address different parts of his cultural makeup, but consider and sample the final work, The Fence, the Rooftop and the Distant Sea, where he gets a major assist from cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Azmeh has been a member of Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and the work reflects the often extramusical associations of works performed by that group. The opening Suite for Improvisor and Orchestra draws on both jazz and Arabic influences. Traces of the Arab maqam system can also be heard in the Paroles-Suite for clarinet and orchestra of Dia Succari on the second disc, where music by Syrian composers younger than Azmeh can also be heard. The Clarinet Concerto of Kareem Roustom has Homer's Odyssey for a program, as suggested by its subtitle, Adrift on the Wine-Dark Sea. Azmeh is a wonderful player with an intense yet lively tone, and the entire project is recommended. May he perform this music in his home country one day.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 ans de liberté

Le violoniste et chef italien Fabio Biondi, célèbre notamment pour son interprétation des “Quatre Saisons” de Vivaldi avec son orchestre Europa Galante, est de ceux qui rejettent toute forme de cloisonnement dans la musique. Retour sur le parcours d’un musicien doté d’une grande souplesse d’esprit et figure incontournable du violon baroque.

Le retour en grâce de Wilhelm Backhaus

Géant de la musique classique allemande, Wilhelm Backhaus (1884-1969) est souvent apparu comme un rigoriste dénué de fantaisie. Son immense legs discographique pour Decca, encore assez rare à l’époque, est réédité aujourd’hui dans d’excellentes conditions. Il permet de réévaluer à la hausse une réputation trop souvent injuste. Backhaus nous apparaît singulièrement plus moderne qu’autrefois grâce à son respect du texte et à ses interprétations sans esbroufe qui cernent au mieux les compositeurs, depuis le premier enregistrement jamais réalisé d’un concerto, celui de Grieg, sévèrement abrégé en 1909, jusqu’à son dernier concert quelques jours avant sa mort.

Peter Thomas en orbite

En Allemagne aussi, ils ont leur Michel Legrand : Peter Thomas ! Ses musiques de film souvent déjantées ont fortement marqué toute une génération de spectateurs, dans les années 1960 et 1970. A tel point qu’il est souvent cité et samplé par de nombreux jeunes groupes pop, depuis les années 1990. Le compositeur culte s'en est allé le 17 mai 2020. Nous l'avions rencontré trois ans plus tôt, à l'aube de ses 92 ans.
