Händel: Suites pour clavecin

Pierre Hantaï

Klassiek - Verschenen op 20 november 2020 | Mirare

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or - 4F de Télérama - The Qobuz Ideal Discography
The new album from Pierre Hantaï, who is momentarily moving away from his dear Scarlatti, is a veritable gem! The French harpsichordist opens this masterful recital recorded in January 2020 in Haarlem (Netherlands) by Nicolas Bartholomée's team and dedicated to four suites by Georg Friedrich Haendel through one of the least known, HWV 426, the first issue of Book I of 1720. Immediately, his fingers immerse this eclectic, cosmopolitan world, where neighbouring Italy and France collide seamlessly, in a resplendent sunshine. Once again, the phrasing dazzles as much as the science that the worthy heir of Gustav Leonhardt displays in grasping the diversity of character as he does in painting landscapes in changing light.Here, the Suite in F major, HWV 427 is a miracle. It is a moving, opening Adagio, with an unheard-of melancholy fullness, in which the "art of touching the harpsichord", of singing, of making polyphony shine, is carried high. So much so that the perpetual movement of the Allegro that follows may initially startle you, Pierre Hantaï's metrical regularity is astonishing, even in the more ornate repeats. However, the lines never seem tight, which makes you look at the choreography, undoubtedly reproducing the outlines of an imaginary Gavotte: an unforgettable sensation! The second Adagio is a sort of prelude, before a bugle fugue, not so distant here from the most joyful fugues of J. S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier.The focus of the recital is the spacious and rather sombre Suite in D minor, HWV 428; at first the traditional Präludium, Allemande, Courante, then suddenly, a long Air whose theme is tenderly unfolded, morphing into a strange world of "harmonic" ramblings, as if improvised, launched like rockets by the harpsichordist - a work in its own right!On all levels, an enthralling recital, to be treasured, which will give many people the opportunity to enjoy Handel's Harpsichord Suites once again. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Walton: Symphony No.1 in B-Flat Minor

André Previn

Symfonieën - Verschenen op 16 november 2018 | RCA Victor

Onderscheidingen The Qobuz Ideal Discography
This is an absolute MUST LISTEN. One of André Previn’s greatest recordings captured in the 1960s in London – truly a golden era for the American conductor! Here, the London Symphony Orchestra, galvanised and operating in the very heart of its repertoire, is at its most beautiful: the brass section is electric (listen to the Scherzo!), the woodwinds are poetic and the strings unrelenting in their rhythmicity... What sets this recording apart from any other are the very fast tempos, always kept within bounds by André Previn, that help unveil Walton’s great architectural sense in the most unique way – check out the magnificent coda of the initial Allegro assai; throughout this interpretation, Sibelius and Hindemith influences progressively fade away in favour of a truly distinctive orchestration and management of musical time that make this score what it really is: a real oddity in the British musical landscape of the 1930s. André Previn’s performance on the 26th and 27th of August 1966 – he went on to create a new version with the RPO for Telarc − is all the more striking when we consider that around the same time, with the same musicians, he was working on the complete symphonies of Ralph Vaughan Williams which lack in poetry, most probably suffering from the type of analytical frankness that actually exalts Walton’s Symphony No.1. A few years later, he also recorded Walton’s Symphony No.2 for EMI, again with the LSO. This can be enjoyed with wonderful sound recording by the Decca team, conducted here by James Lock. © Pierre-Yves Lascar

Mozart : Don Giovanni (2016 Remastered)

Carlo Maria Giulini

Volledige opera's - Verschenen op 1 januari 1992 | Warner Classics

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or - The Qobuz Ideal Discography
This may not be the greatest Don Giovanni ever recorded, but it is very, very close. It's got the inestimable Carlo Maria Giulini on the podium, and the Italian conductor turns in a performance that's beautifully, lovingly, wonderfully lyrical, yet at the same time always highly dramatic, and often very exciting. The cast features some of the best female singers ever, with Joan Sutherland as an imperious yet wholly womanly Donna Anna, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf as a vulnerable yet strong-voiced Donna Elvira, and Graziella Sciutti as a comely yet seductive Zerlina. The men are just as strong, with Giuseppe Taddei as a hilarious yet sympathetic Leporello and Gottlob Frick as the absolutely terrifying Commendatore. What keeps this 1959 recording from being at the absolute top is Eberhard Wächter in the title role. That is not to say that Wächter isn't terrific; his Don is dashing, sensuous, tough, funny, ironic, and, in the final scene, almost heroic. The only thing that keeps Wächter from being the great Don is the fact that Cesare Siepi was already the Don who had all the qualities Wächter possessed, plus more pure charisma than Wächter, or for that matter, any other Don. The greatest Don Giovanni ever recorded is Wilhelm Furtwängler's, live from the 1953 Salzburg Festival with Siepi in the title role. Giulini's Don is a superlative evening at the theater. Furtwängler's Don will change your life forever. EMI's stereo studio sound for Giulini is far clearer, cleaner, and warmer than EMI's live on-stage monaural sound for Furtwängler. © TiVo

Verdi : Il Trovatore (Remastered)

Zubin Mehta

Klassiek - Verschenen op 28 juli 1998 | Sony Classical

Hi-Res Onderscheidingen The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Unquestionably a jewel in the crown of the discography: incandescent and inspired conducting from start to finish (under the baton of Zubin Mehta, not the only example), and great voices of the time, sumptuous and committed — Leontyne Price, Fiorenza Cossotto, Sherrill Milnes and Placido Domingo. A fascinating and burning work is answered by an interpretation of flesh, fire and ashes to be counted in the leading pack of Trovatori in the catalog. (Qobuz/GG)

Zubin Mehta

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 januari 1973 | Sony Classical

Hi-Res Onderscheidingen The Qobuz Ideal Discography
In unison with Zubin Mehta's inspired direction, where dramatic intensity and tenderness contrast, the cast is excellent, especially the three leading roles : Leontyne Price for her vocal quality and commitment to the limits, Domingo at the top of his voice, true and nuanced, and magnificent baritone Sherrill Milnes. A very lively and vibrant performance of the highest standard, probably the best in the entire discography. (Qobuz)
