The eyes of the wind [cello concerto]

Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Alexander Briger


Jean Guihen Queyras (cello)

Three composers, three masterworks of our time, performed by three orchestras - and a central figure, the moving spirit behind this fine project devoted to the concertante cello: Jean-Guihen Queyras, voted Artist of the Year 2008 in Diapason.Three sometimes very different, yet at the same time highly complementary ways of conceiving the concerto in the 21st century. Long a soloist with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Jean-Guihen Queyras was profoundly influenced by working with Pierre Boulez. His discography, distinguished by a musical eclecticism, includes works by Haydn (on period instruments) as well as Dvorák and 20th-century composers.

“In all three pieces, Queyras is wonderfully committed.” The Guardian, 29th May 2009 ***

“Amy's "Concerto pour violoncelle et orchestre" opens with bold, broad solo strokes, and builds to a more animated conclusion in which Queyras's cello deftly rides a passage of marimba and percussion.” The Independent, 22nd May 2009 ****

“While inhabiting diverse worlds of sound, these three cello concertos share a common thread in the refined, comprehensive artistry of Jean-Guihen Queyras. The Canadian-born Frenchman has come to the fore as a versatile cellist, persuasive in the Classical and Romantic repertoire as much as in the modern milieu he experienced as a member of the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Whether in the emphatic drama of Bruno Mantovani’s Concerto of 2003, the more rarefied atmosphere of Philippe Schoeller’s The Eyes of the Wind (premiered in 2005) or the multifaceted athletics of Gilbert Amy’s Concerto (which was completed in 2000), Queyras draws out the character and colour of each piece in the most compelling way.” The Telegraph, 1st June 2009 *****

Boléro

Pavane pour une infante défunte

Ma Mère l'Oye

La Valse


Berliner Sinfonie-Orchester, Günther Herbig

Günther Herbig, Principal Conductor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, now the Konzerthaus orchestra conducts Ravel.

Solo flautist Richard Waage, an orchestra member from 1961 to 2002, valued the work ethic of his Principal Conductor –. “With Herbig things were ‘more open’, when you had worked your way into a certain context, than with other conductors. He allowed you more freedom. You could offer more as an individual. I liked that a lot.” On one occasion when he had the opportunity to see Herbig’s conducting score, he was impressed by how every harmonic step was marked, so that the score bore traces of a musicological analysis. “This was the mathematical impulse” characteristic, he judged, of Herbig’s way of working.

This architectural, formally structured approach to the music fitted well with the recording technique of those days, which did not allow breakdown into such small steps as today. Arches of tension thus sound more plausible, because there are fewer pieces to put together. “When you have long takes, of course that makes it all more organic,” concludes Richard Waage. It will surely have been these working conditions and the conductor’s specific style that made it possible, even in such an unpretentious piece as the Pavane, “to bring out the character of mourning”, which so moved Jürgen Kögel and other participants.
