Opera or oratorio? The question has remained unanswered since the disastrous creation of Semele in Covent Garden in 1744. Attacked by both opera critics and devotees, both parties accusing him of turning theatres into temples by playing his oratorios, Handel was no longer popular in the British capital. In doing so, he reconnected with Greek mythology through Ovid and his librettists in a work intended to satisfy both sides.


Semele contains several large passages, including a splendid quartet in the first act, which was extremely rare at the time. But it was a complete failure and the new work was on display only for four short evenings. John Eliot Gardiner first recorded Semele at the beginning of the 80s for Erato Records, to varying degrees of success. He revisited the work in 2019 for a series of concerts given in Paris, Barcelona, Milan (La Scala), Rome and London, where the new version was recorded on 2nd May 2019.


Gardiner sets the record straight in a way with this recording that does full justice to this hybrid work thanks to excellent soloists, starting with soprano Louise Alder in the title role. His great sensitivity, the rich palette of vocal colours and the touching expressiveness are all incredibly admirable. The protagonists surrounding him, mezzo-soprano Lucile Richardot, tenor Hugo Hymas, countertenor Carlo Vistoli, bass Gianluca Buratto and a few soloists from the choir, complete a coherent and flawless cast. As an untiring discoverer of new voices, Sir John Eliot Gardiner gives a beautiful impetus to this work. The Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists are as sparkling as ever. © 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.

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.

Gounod romantico e mistico

Artefice principale del rinnovamento della musica francese nella seconda metà del XIX secolo accanto al suo predecessore Berlioz, che ammirava, ed ai suoi allievi Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Massenet, i quali veneravano la sua fede nell’Arte, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), mistico ed incantatore, romantico alla ricerca di un nuovo classicismo, deve la propria fama ad alcuni capolavori che ne sminuiscono il calibro. Una discografia in pieno sviluppo permette di scoprirne la musica nella sua diversità: strumentale, vocale, sacra e lirica.
