Handel spent many years in Italy during his youth and it was here that he composed his anti-heroic comedy, Agrippina, at the age of twenty-four, before eventually settling down in London. Its immoral, corrupt and decadent plots are presented as an inherent part of daily life for the ruling class of ancient Rome, along with their insatiable desire for political and sexual power. Handel was fascinated by Italian music and composed this particular opera in less than three weeks upon the request of a Venetian theatre, where it was then performed some twenty-seven nights in a row. Such was the enormity of the opera’s success that it firmly established the young composer’s reputation in Europe as a result. The score is bursting with emotion and has so many twists and turns that even the Venetians, who were used to these kinds of storylines, were blown away. The colourful libretto includes betrayals, assassinations, feigned love and lies of every kind – all of which are elements that the American film industry delights in incorporating into the films of today under the direction of someone like Martin Scorsese or the Coen brothers.

This studio recording was made in the Dolomites in May 2019, in conjunction with a European tour and features a dazzling cast led by the fierce Joyce DiDonato (Agrippina). This is DiDonato is at her very best, combining her vocals with marvellously conducted flourishes. She perfectly encapsulates the difficult, multi-faceted role by reflecting each one of Agrippina’s personality traits, from formidable intelligence and masterful manipulation to being a loving mother and wife. Joining her onstage is an exceptional cast that includes Franco Fagioli (Nerone), Jakub Józef Orliński (Ottone), Marie-Nicole Lemieux (Giunone) and Elsa Benoit (Poppea), along with the II Pomo d’Oro ensemble, feverishly conducted by Maxim Emelyanychev. This can only be described as a Handel grand cru. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Il pellegrinaggio di Gardiner attraverso le cantate di Bach

John Eliot Gardiner è cresciuto sotto lo sguardo di uno dei due ritratti autentici di Johann Sebastian Bach, che i suoi genitori avevano gelosamente custodito nascondendolo nella loro fattoria nel Dorset durante la Seconda Guerra mondiale. Divenuto uno dei «papi» della musica barocca, Gardiner ha prodotto, con la sua totale devozione a Bach, un volume appassionante, Musique au château du ciel, pubblicato in francese da Flammarion (trad. it. La musica nel castello del cielo). «Come ha fatto un’opera tanto sublime a sgorgare da un uomo così ordinario e così opaco?», si legge nell’introduzione allo studio di Gardiner, pieno di tenerezza e di rara erudizione, che non è una nuova biografia del compositore tedesco, ma la summa dell’esperienza personale dell’interprete, che gli ha dettato considerazioni estetiche ed un’analisi sensibile dei fondamenti armonici, contrappuntistici e polifonici della sua produzione. Un tentativo riuscito di scoprire l’uomo attraverso la sua musica.

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.

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.
