Vox Clamantis, under the direction of Jaan-Eik Tulve, has established itself as Estonia’s foremost small vocal ensemble, at home in the worlds of both old and new music. Their ECM New Series discography, accordingly, has ranged from Gregorian chant and Perotin (as on "Filia Sion") to present-day composers including Arvo Pärt ("The Deer’s Cry"), Erkki-Sven Tüür ("Oxymoron") and Helena Tulve ("Arboles lloran por lluvia"). On "The Suspended Harp of Babel" Vox Clamantis turns its attention to Cyrillus Kreek (1889-1962), whose work also took nourishment from ancient sources as well as from contemporaneous musical currents.

One of the innovators of choral music in Estonia, Kreek drew extensively upon folk music and was a pioneer in the documentation of it, recording, transcribing and preserving for posterity hundreds of songs, both sacred and secular. His arrangements of these folk songs and folk hymns, as well as his settings of psalms, provided a bedrock for choirs in an idiom of his own, described by Paul Griffiths in the liner notes here as “restrained and yet glowing”. Cyrillus Kreek, born in the village of Saanika, was a contemporary of Arvo Pärt’s teacher Heino Eller, and both studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory in the years before the First World War. Kreek’s music, emphasizing simplicity, clarity, and the natural quality of the human voice, influenced many composers in Estonia including Veljo Tormis (who also creatively deployed folk song in choral contexts) and Tõnu Kõrvits. The quietly radiant aura of his work is enhanced on the present recording by the contributions of Marco and Angela Ambrosini playing nyckelharpa and by Anna-Liisa Eller on kannel, the Estonian zither.

Marco Ambrosini’s preludes and interludes imaginatively extend the spirit of Kreek’s pieces and in the case of Kui suur on meie vaesus ("Whilst great is our poverty"), call the music forth, the nyckelharpa drone summoning the kannel to pick out the melody of the folk hymn, preparing the way for the entrance of the singers. Throughout the album the purity of the voices is striking – the liner notes speak of “voices with the transparency of spring water”.
Kreek’s music is celebrated in Estonia with a yearly festival, and there is a museum dedicated to the composer in Haapsalu. Documentation of his work outside his homeland has, however, been scant to date. "The Suspended Harp of Babel" – valuable both as entry point into Cyrillus Kreek’s sound-world and for its pre-echoes of Estonian music to come - is likely to trigger overdue recognition for a unique composer and researcher.
This recording was made in April 2018 in Tallinn’s Transfiguration Church. © ECM New Series

Nils Frahm: il pianoforte come non lo avete mai sentito suonare

Salutato dai critici di musica classica come dagli amanti di esperimenti elettronici, il talento di Nils Frahm ha messo d’accordo tutti negli ultimi dieci anni. Che usi un organo da chiesa o un sintetizzatore dotato di pedali per effetti, il pianista tedesco guarda sempre avanti. Impossibile non restarne affascinati.

Picasso e la musica

Il genio modernista di Picasso ha ben presto oltrepassato l’ambito pittorico per irradiarsi nella musica e nella danza, due arti con le quali il pittore spagnolo ha sempre avuto stretti legami, tanto da influenzare gli amici compositori incontrati lungo il cammino.

Le sinfonie elettroniche di Mason Bates

Come, non conoscete (ancora) Mason Bates? Eppure è uno dei nomi più presenti sulla scena nordamericana. Nato nel 1977, Bates è insieme compositore (soprattutto sinfonista e lirico) e DJ di musica elettronica (con lo pseudonimo DJ Masonic): due poli apparentemente opposti, che lui invece si delizia particolarmente a mescolare. Circa metà della sua opera sinfonica e lirica include, in un modo o nell’altro, sonorità elettroniche, perlopiù suoni “di tutti i giorni”, preregistrati e restituiti in tempo reale in base alla partitura. In occasione dell’uscita della sua fantastica opera The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Qobuz si è intrattenuto con questo personaggio fuori dai canoni.
