A composer, orchestra founder and polemicist, omnipresent in the second half of the 20th century, Pierre Boulez remains famous principally as a conductor in the memory of the general public. It remains to be seen what history will remember him for. Will he be remembered primarily as a composer, like Gustav Mahler, will it be as a conductor, like Igor Markevitch, or will he be remembered for both roles like Leonard Bernstein? Today, Boulez's music is much less performed and recorded than that of his American colleagues; it is also much less accessible.

Passionate about contemporary music since starting his studies, clarinetist Jörg Widmann is also a much performed composer and has created many works for his own instrument, working with Pierre Boulez among others. In this album, which he dedicates to the French composer, accompanied by his violinist sister, Jörg Widmann performs Dialogue pour l’ombre double for clarinet and an electroacoustic device developed by IRCAM and produced on this recording by the SWR Experimentalstudio in Southern Germany. Dedicated to his friend Luciano Berio for his sixtieth birthday (1985), Boulez's work was inspired by the double shadow scene in Paul Claudel's Le Soulier de satin.

Ten years later, Boulez composed Anthèmes II, a new version of his solo violin work Anthèmes I. In this new interpretation, the work is twice as long and also uses a live electroacoustic device, played here by Caroline Widmann, which frames the clarinet piece with the two versions. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.
