Fayard | 2010 | ISBN: 2213660751 | French | EPUB | 1200 pages | 8.8 MB

Longtemps méconnues du grand public des mélomanes, les cantates de Bach connaissent de nos jours l’engouement que justifie cet incomparable trésor. Les enregistrements en intégrales se multiplient, de même que les auditions en cycles de concerts au long cours. Le contenu spirituel des cantates d’église, une langue allemande complexe ainsi que les multiples connotations de livrets volontiers vilipendés en ont freiné l’accès à des auditeurs comblés par les Passions et les oratorios. Quant aux cantates profanes, elles demeurent encore à l’écart des programmes. …

Après le volumineux ouvrage consacré par Gilles Cantagrel aux cantates de J. S.

During the final years of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) created the monumental body of music that can be considered his “Testament”, comprising the Musical Offering, the Art of Fugue and the B minor Mass. This latter work is a perfect synthesis of all his skill and flair in the art of composition (and essentially in that of counterpoint), as well as his gift for invention and his extraordinary sense of form, structure and number.

If he were so minded, Jordi Savall might hand copies of this CD out to new acquaintances as the musical equivalent of a calling-card. True, he appears here only in the guise of soloist, whereas a more complete portrait would need to include samples of his work as director and conductor; but as an illustration of the range of the viola da gamba, this generously filled disc is exemplary. And although the calling-card might not be handmade, it is the nearest thing to it, since Alia Vox is Savall’s own, newly established label.

Composed during Bach s early years as a composer, these Toccatas are written in the Stylus Phantasticus, inherited from the great Buxtehude. Free-flowing, virtuoso, fresh, they form a false album collated after the composer s death, and are unjustly among the least known works of the master of Weimar. For her first solo disc, the pianist Amandine Savary gives a perfect performance of these masterpieces of sensitivity. The French pianist Amandine Savary was awarded a scholarship to enter the Royal Academy of Music in London, obtaining her BMus diploma with honours in 2007.

It is impossible to overstate the profundity with which Bach has probed the secret inner recesses of the human heart – quite the opposite from the ‘divine sewing machine’ that Colette saw in his work. He was really an opera composer, showing great psychological penetration, not only spiritually but in basic human terms, from the tenderness of love to the terror felt when confronting death. Separated from any liturgical or musicological context, this programme aims to stress Bach’s genius for expressing human passions in all their diversity. –GILLES CANTAGREL

The préludes are written-out improvisations in the style of the Préludes non mésurée.

Samuel Scheidt (baptized November 3, 1587 – March 24, 1653) was a German composer, organist and teacher of the early Baroque era. Samuel Scheidt published 4 collections entitled Ludi Musici between 1621 & 1627, whereas only the first publication (from which the present program is taken) survives complete. Scheidt continues to be the most significant of the early North German instrumental composers.
