"Seren" means star in Welsh, and few are the stars that burn more intensely than trebles, or boy sopranos, as Americans have it, for they have only a very short time, sometimes measured in months before it's all over. Treble Cai Thomas seemingly emphasizes this by inviting Aksel Rykkvin as a guest on Karl Jenkins' Ave verum. Just a few years ago, it was Rykkvin who was the star treble, but now he's a baritone. Thomas sets out here to play to his strengths. He has a Welsh song to reflect his heritage, the ubiquitous "Pie Jesu" of Fauré, a couple of slow Handel tunes, some modern crossover material, and a few pieces of pop minimalism. Perhaps Thomas' strongest pieces are the ones that stand out from the program: Charles Villiers Stanford's The Blue Bird and a really haunting version of the folk song The Ash Grove, but all of the music inhabits a moderate vocal range, is in moderate tempos, varying only in flavor. Thomas's voice rests easily in all the pieces, and, unstressed, it's gorgeous, with startling clarity and a tinge of melancholy that's especially affecting. Perhaps to add more variety, Thomas uses several backing groups; this works well, with his voice foregrounded slightly differently each time. Savor the voice while you may.

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.

Tim Burton in 10 album

Che si tratti di riprese reali o di stop motion, Tim Burton ha costruito in oltre 30 anni un mondo cinematografico in cui meraviglia e poesia si sposano allo stile gotico e ad uno humor macabro. Con poche eccezioni, è il compositore Danny Elfman a fargli da spalla in questa avventura. Senza le immagini di Burton, la musica di Elfman non avrebbe lo stesso sapore, e viceversa. Lo hanno dimostrato ancora una volta nel 2019 con il travolgente Dumbo.

Leonard Bernstein, la musica universale

Pianista, direttore d’orchestra, compositore e pedagogo, Leonard Bernstein ebbe una vita molto piena. Figura di spicco della musica americana, il compositore di West Side Story intrecciava le influenze, il belcanto, il romanticismo di Mahler (di cui fu l’interprete più rappresentativo) e i suoi diretti maestri Walter Piston ed Aaron Copland, senza dimenticare il ritmo del jazz e le eccentricità di Broadway.
