Your attitude toward the English vocal octet (hey, truth in advertising) Voces8 may ultimately be determined by your general feeling toward smooth, crossover-oriented choral singing, conservative in style. But if you have the slightest sympathy toward that, there are good reasons to choose Voces8 over other similar groups: their sound is sensuous without being sentimental, the engineering here from Abbey Road Studios (with composer Jonathan Dove using John Lennon's piano in his work The Passing of the Year, no less) is superb, and above all, the group's programming concepts are inventive and manage to teach while they entertain. That has never been more true than on Equinox, a program that uses the concept of seasonal transition both literally and metaphorically, and thus weaves together sacred and secular material in an unusually effective way. Both growth and death are quietly addressed. The program likewise integrates Renaissance and contemporary material effectively: this is a staple of English choral recordings, but the marriage here seems deeper and more convincing. As for the engineering, Abbey Road's engineers are uncanny in capturing the quiet sounds of Graham Lack's This Ember Night (sample track seven for a taste of what awaits those with even moderately good equipment). The "ember night," one might add, is a pagan concept. The Passing of the Year, for chorus and piano, is undeniably relevant thematically, but whether the piano disturbs the mood is something that may vary by individual listener. On balance, an intriguing and splendidly made album of music for small vocal group.

Henry Mancini, il più stiloso

Sofisticata, ironica, sensibile… Sono questi gli aggettivi spesso usati per descrivere la musica di Henry Mancini, considerato ancora oggi, a 23 anni dalla sua scomparsa, uno dei compositori pop più grandi e più influenti di sempre. Probabilmente perché accanto alle opere patinate e leggere a cui deve la sua reputazione (Colazione da Tiffany, La Pantera Rosa…), ha saputo mostrare anche la complessità del suo linguaggio attraverso composizioni più tormentate.

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.

Il paradosso di studio di Esa-Pekka Salonen

Di passaggio in Francia in quest’estate del 2018, agl’Incontri musicali di Evian, dove dirigeva l’Orchestra Sinfonica de La Grange au Lac, il finlandese Esa-Pekka Salonen, direttore d’orchestra acclamato e compositore prolifico con più di 60 dischi, rievoca il suo modo di accostarsi al lavoro di studio, tanto specifico della musica classica.
