Même au XXIème siècle, monter le Ring de Wagner n'est pas une mince affaire pour les théâtres qui s'y emploient, comme pour les chefs d'orchestre et chanteurs relevant le défi et les labels qui l'enregistrent sur le vif ou en studio. Après la réussite de sa production au Festival de Bayreuth, éditée en 2008 par Opus Arte, Christian Thielemann a décidé de transposer sa vision au studio avec l'orchestre de l'Opéra de Vienne et une distribution différente.

Le directeur de la Staatskapelle de Dresde, formé à Wagner par Herbert von Karajan, a ainsi l'occasion de transmettre sa propre vision de l'oeuvre et de mettre ses pas dans ceux des géants qui l'ont précédé. On pense à Wilhelm Furtwängler, Clemens Krauss, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Georg Solti, Karl Böhm et Karajan dont il se démarque par une approche plus chaleureuse tout en conservant la maîtrise du sujet et des protagonistes. Le nouveau chaînon d'une histoire chargée rappelée dans l'un des deux DVD accompagnant les quatorze CD consacrés aux quatre opéras de l'Anneau du Nibelung : L'Or du Rhin, La Valkyrie, Siegfried et Le Crépuscule des dieux.

Du côté intime de la force, Christian Thielemann se situe davantage dans la lignée d'un Karajan que de la bouillonnante interprétation de Solti. Sa grande maîtrise découlant d'une direction pleine de sang-froid, alerte et fluide, n'est pas une surprise. Du point de vue orchestral, le chef berlinois accomplit un formidable travail d'abbatage où élans fortissimo et finesse des nuances forcent l'admiration. Ôtant toute réticence de départ, le Staatsoper de Vienne se révèle à la hauteur de ses ambitions. Il n'en n'est hélas pas de même concernant l'interprétation vocale dont la qualité varie d'un opéra à l'autre. Bien que très vivant et par moments envoûtant, L'Or du Rhin est le moins réussi en raison d'un choix consensuel (Tomasz Konieczny en Alberich et Wolfgang Schmidt en Mime), tout juste rattrapé par un excellent Wotan (Albert Dohmen) et un honorable Loge (Adrian Eröd). Cette différence finit par plomber l'appréciation générale.

Le duo de Christopher Ventris (Siegmund) et Waltraud Meier (Sieglinde) dans La Valkyrie apporte beaucoup de satisfaction, même s'il se révèle en deça des performances attendues de tels interprètes. Dohmen reste quant à lui impérial, face à un Erik Halfvarson (Hunding) assez lent et une Katarina Dalayman (Brünhilde) en grande forme. Encore une fois, la direction de Thielemann transcende les moments de faiblesse. Faute de grande voix capable d'exploits, Siegfried reste terne avec les défauts du premier opéra. Stephen Gould (Siegfried) n'est guère exceptionnel et Albert Dohmen (Der Wanderer) ne parvient plus à soutenir l'ensemble. En Brünhilde, Linda Watson montre quelques fulgurances mais c'est à peu près tout. Enfin, Le Crépuscule des dieux avec les mêmes Siegfried et Brünhilde et Erik Halfvarson en Hagen relève un peu le niveau sans vraiment faire décoller le mythe vers les cieux. La distribution est trop « terrestre ». Sans être le Ring du (XXIème) siècle, ce nouveau cycle inférieur à la production de Bayreuth parvient à faire jeu égal avec la récente version de Marek Janowski. Son entrée dans l'histoire n'est pas chose aisée aux côtés des monuments du passé. Les férus de versions modernes y trouveront leur compte.

Descriptif de l'album

Même au XXIème siècle, monter le Ring de Wagner n'est pas une mince affaire pour les théâtres qui s'y emploient, comme pour les chefs d'orchestre et chanteurs relevant le défi et les labels qui l'enregistrent sur le vif ou en studio. Après la réussite de sa production au Festival de Bayreuth, éditée en 2008 par Opus Arte, Christian Thielemann a décidé de transposer sa vision au studio avec l'orchestre de l'Opéra de Vienne et une distribution différente.

Le directeur de la Staatskapelle de Dresde, formé à Wagner par Herbert von Karajan, a ainsi l'occasion de transmettre sa propre vision de l'oeuvre et de mettre ses pas dans ceux des géants qui l'ont précédé. On pense à Wilhelm Furtwängler, Clemens Krauss, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Georg Solti, Karl Böhm et Karajan dont il se démarque par une approche plus chaleureuse tout en conservant la maîtrise du sujet et des protagonistes. Le nouveau chaînon d'une histoire chargée rappelée dans l'un des deux DVD accompagnant les quatorze CD consacrés aux quatre opéras de l'Anneau du Nibelung : L'Or du Rhin, La Valkyrie, Siegfried et Le Crépuscule des dieux.

Du côté intime de la force, Christian Thielemann se situe davantage dans la lignée d'un Karajan que de la bouillonnante interprétation de Solti. Sa grande maîtrise découlant d'une direction pleine de sang-froid, alerte et fluide, n'est pas une surprise. Du point de vue orchestral, le chef berlinois accomplit un formidable travail d'abbatage où élans fortissimo et finesse des nuances forcent l'admiration. Ôtant toute réticence de départ, le Staatsoper de Vienne se révèle à la hauteur de ses ambitions. Il n'en n'est hélas pas de même concernant l'interprétation vocale dont la qualité varie d'un opéra à l'autre. Bien que très vivant et par moments envoûtant, L'Or du Rhin est le moins réussi en raison d'un choix consensuel (Tomasz Konieczny en Alberich et Wolfgang Schmidt en Mime), tout juste rattrapé par un excellent Wotan (Albert Dohmen) et un honorable Loge (Adrian Eröd). Cette différence finit par plomber l'appréciation générale.

Le duo de Christopher Ventris (Siegmund) et Waltraud Meier (Sieglinde) dans La Valkyrie apporte beaucoup de satisfaction, même s'il se révèle en deça des performances attendues de tels interprètes. Dohmen reste quant à lui impérial, face à un Erik Halfvarson (Hunding) assez lent et une Katarina Dalayman (Brünhilde) en grande forme. Encore une fois, la direction de Thielemann transcende les moments de faiblesse. Faute de grande voix capable d'exploits, Siegfried reste terne avec les défauts du premier opéra. Stephen Gould (Siegfried) n'est guère exceptionnel et Albert Dohmen (Der Wanderer) ne parvient plus à soutenir l'ensemble. En Brünhilde, Linda Watson montre quelques fulgurances mais c'est à peu près tout. Enfin, Le Crépuscule des dieux avec les mêmes Siegfried et Brünhilde et Erik Halfvarson en Hagen relève un peu le niveau sans vraiment faire décoller le mythe vers les cieux. La distribution est trop « terrestre ». Sans être le Ring du (XXIème) siècle, ce nouveau cycle inférieur à la production de Bayreuth parvient à faire jeu égal avec la récente version de Marek Janowski. Son entrée dans l'histoire n'est pas chose aisée aux côtés des monuments du passé. Les férus de versions modernes y trouveront leur compte.

Les Grands Angles...
Nelson Freire, un virtuose très discret

Enfant prodige dans son pays natal, le pianiste brésilien, disparu en novembre 2021, est resté loin des bruyantes trompettes de la renommée. Ses mains de géant, sa technique aisée et virtuose étaient toujours au service d’une sonorité puissante, pleine et moelleuse. Qobuz revient sur le parcours de celui qui fut longtemps le « secret le mieux gardé du piano ».

Nils Frahm, le piano debout

Salué par les critiques de la musique classique comme par les amateurs d’expériences électroniques, le talent de Nils Frahm a mis tout le monde d’accord ces dix dernières années. Qu’il utilise un orgue d’église ou un synthétiseur flanqué de pédales d’effet, le pianiste allemand regarde toujours vers l’avant et c’est pour ça qu’il semble si séduisant.

Max Richter, l’activiste du néo-classique

Avec la sortie de son nouvel album Exiles, une réflexion sur l’exil menée avec le Baltic Sea Orchestra, l’iconoclaste et prolifique pionnier du courant néo-classique Max Richter se positionne une nouvelle fois comme un des artistes les plus engagés toutes scènes musicales confondues. Reliant musiques classique et électroniques, mondes physique et sensible, rarement un artiste aura produit de la musique instrumentale aussi évocatrice.
