Though the celebrations in France were rather patchy in terms of official concerts, apart from the Festival Berlioz de La Côte-Saint-André, the anniversary of 150 years since the death of Hector Berlioz was marked with great pomp in London, where fervent Berliozian John Nelson, conducted the Requiem on the very day of the event, 8 March 2019, in the gigantic St Paul's Cathedral, at the heart of the "City" of the UK capital.


With three hundred musicians and chorists, this was one of the high points of the Berlioz calendar and a real London 'happening'. To save French honour, a colossal concert was recorded and filmed by a team who came from Paris, under the artistic direction of Daniel Zalay. One can imagine the difficulty involved in recording such a sprawling team, spread out throughout the vast edifice that was built after the great fire of 1666. Miraculously spared by the German bombs of 1940, it has a powerful symbolism for Londoners.


The English love for Berlioz reflects the love that the composer felt for Shakespeare, which can be seen throughout his works. "There is no city in the world, I am convinced" – he wrote – "where so much music is consumed as in London". He regularly read the London press and closely followed the reactions to performances of his works. This 2019 anniversary concert was inundated by Londoners and the venue was sold out well before the day of the performance itself. John Nelson commands his gigantic team with a masterly hand, in perfect time, and with a perfect familiarity with a composer that he loves above all others, as once did Sir Colin Davis. The Philharmonia Orchestra responds to his slightest indication. The tenor's brief part is magnified by the voice of Michael Spyres, who projects across the assembly from the pulpit. An immense musical and commemorative event, the memory of which will long be kept alive by this album. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.

Leonard Bernstein, la musica universale

Pianista, direttore d’orchestra, compositore e pedagogo, Leonard Bernstein ebbe una vita molto piena. Figura di spicco della musica americana, il compositore di West Side Story intrecciava le influenze, il belcanto, il romanticismo di Mahler (di cui fu l’interprete più rappresentativo) e i suoi diretti maestri Walter Piston ed Aaron Copland, senza dimenticare il ritmo del jazz e le eccentricità di Broadway.

Debussy e il pianoforte

Nell’opera La musique française de piano, pubblicata nel 1930 (ed. it. La musica pianistica francese, 1957), Alfred Cortot descrive con notevole precisione ciò che costituisce il valore e l’originalità della musica pianistica di Debussy, appena dodici anni dopo la scomparsa del compositore. Senza avere la prospettiva storica che abbiamo oggi, il grande pianista e pensatore aveva compreso il linguaggio di Debussy nella sua totalità.
