Recorded live at Pisa Cathedral in 2016, this recording of Bach's St. Matthew Passion, BWV 244, is of a piece with the touring Bach Cantata Pilgrimage recordings released in the early 2000s: it is rich yet lively, sung with precision yet a total sense of commitment in the moment. The singers -- the Monteverdi Choir of 30 with soloists all drawn from the choir, except for Jesus (Stephan Loges) and the Evangelist (James Gilchrist) -- performed from memory, and the feeling that the text is being communicated directly is even greater than is usual with Gardiner. An unusual feature of the recording is that the soloists are not single per part; the soprano solos are taken by no fewer than five different singers. Several (try Hannah Morrison in "Aus liebe") are lovely, and the effect of a space between the congregational chorales and the focus on an individual soloist is fascinating. The hair-trigger alertness of the chorus in the big numbers like "Sind Blitze, sind Donner in Wolken verschwunden?" is also extremely compelling. Gardiner and the Monteverdi Choir offer Bach with the luxury of old-fashioned Romantic versions combined with the agility of historical performance, and they've never done the combination better than they do here.

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.

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.
