Informazioni

«Una banda di amici»: è in questi termini che un critico parlava di Lionel Meunier e dell’ensemble Vox Luminis, da lui fondato nel 2004 dopo un concerto dato al Festival di Saintes. Bisogna dire che il direttore, formatosi in Belgio ed in Francia presso i migliori pedagoghi del momento, è un appassionato. Insieme cantante e flautista dolce, dà il via ad una carriera concertistica che viene presto notata. Il giovanotto è inoltre richiesto da numerosi ensemble europei in qualità di “coach” o direttore artistico. La sua perfetta conoscenza del repertorio antico e a cappella l’ha spinto a fondare un proprio ensemble, che ha rapidamente portato ad un altissimo livello di eccellenza, e che si è imposto come uno dei migliori d’Europa. Dopo tre prime incisioni per l’etichetta Alpha dedicate a Buxtehude, Bach e Haendel, ecco una nuova realizzazione che ci offre una versione molto esaltante del Re Artù di Purcell, registrata nel gennaio 2018 durante il Festival delle Fiandre ad Amuz, centro musicale assolutamente particolare, che ha per sede un’antica chiesa trasformata in sala da concerto ultramoderna.
La nuova incisione, perfettamente riuscita, del capolavoro di Purcell è il frutto di molti anni di lavoro, durante i quali la semi-opera è stata presentata in numerosi festival europei con un successo costante. Eseguita per la prima volta nel 1691 sotto l’influsso delle opere di Lully e dello stile francese, è un’allegoria dell’auspicata riconciliazione fra cattolici e protestanti, che alla fine non ebbe luogo mai. La celebre leggenda di Re Artù e dell’amico Merlino il mago ispirò a Purcell un’opera dall’esuberante inventiva musicale e teatrale. Contrariamente all’abitudine degli eroi operistici, i personaggi principali non cantano, ma sono invece rappresentati da ruoli secondari e da figure soprannaturali, spiriti dell’Aria e della Terra, che indicano il Bene e il Male. Tipico dell’opera inglese, questo “masque” sposa l’espressività melodica alla magia musicale. © François Hudry/Qobuz
