Barry Lyndon en Concert

L’Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France interprète la bande originale de "Barry Lyndon". Un ensorcelant voyage dans l’univers du mélomane Stanley Kubrick. Découvrez les musiques qui ont marqué des générations de spectateurs.

"À moins que vous ne vouliez de la musique pop, il est vain d’employer quelqu’un qui n’est pas l’égal d’un Mozart, d’un Beethoven ou d’un Strauss pour écrire une musique orchestrale", jugeait Stanley Kubrick lors d’un entretien avec Michel Ciment. L’histoire est connue : pour 2001 : l’odyssée de l’espace, la MGM l’obligea à s’associer au compositeur Alex North. Lorsque ce dernier livra sa partition, le réalisateur la rejeta et imposa au studio les œuvres préexistantes qu’il avait lui-même sélectionnées. Par la suite, fidèle à sa ligne de conduite, il continua à faire de la musique, essentiellement classique, un élément central de son cinéma, notamment dans Barry Lyndon, dont la bande-son a marqué des générations de spectateurs.

Placé sous la direction de Nicolas Altstaedt, l’Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, accompagné par cinq solistes – les clavecinistes Violaine Cochard et Jean Rondeau, la violoniste Ana Millet, le violoncelliste Renaud Guieu et la pianiste Catherine Cournot –, interprète ici entre autres les deux célèbres leitmotive musicaux de cette fresque inoubliable : la Sarabande de Haendel et le Trio pour piano, violon et violoncelle opus 100 de Schubert.

Vivaldi Sleep Project

Earlier this year we gave ten diverse musicians from the world of Jazz, folk and rock, a recording of the string parts of the second movement ‘Autumn’, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.  The musicians were Jim Moray, Trish Clowes, Paul Sartin, Philip Sheppard, Susi Evans, Shahbaz Hussain, Eduardo Garcia, Aidan O’Rourke, Yumi Kurosawa and David Le Page.

Originally recorded by Orchestra of the Swan players, at the Birmingham Conservatoire, in January this year, all ten musicians used this recording as the base of their inspiration, for their own unique interpretations.

Furthermore, all tracks were then given to a group of video artists to use for inspiration. One group of professional filmmakers and a second group of students from Birmingham School of Media. Over the next few months, we will be sharing with you the fantastic results of the Vivaldi Sleep Project.

Here we have the final contribution by David Le Page, Artistic Director of the Swan. David’s piece is a hybrid of improvised and written parts for multi-tracked violins. The orchestral track was discretely manipulated and the process of layered recording, editing, and mixing became a creative compositional tool which informed the eventual outcome.

David’s creativity extends to his family as his daughter Clara helped with the filming of the video. Here David describes the inspiration behind the video to accompany his improvisation: “In my video a hooded figure - suggesting the human statues of Anthony Gormley - materialises at different locations in a stark landscape. Transition to a dream state occurs as the figure approaches the lens. Winter trees overplayed by a violinist appearing as flickering shadow play, create an unsettling reverie. The figure returns as the music reaches its resolution. The video was filmed, with the help of my daughter Clara, at East Carlton country park near Corby and in a very muddy field in the Welland Valley.”

Gloria!

Antonio Vivaldi - Gloria in excelsis Deo (RV 589)

Realizzato da Philippe Béziat // Concerto Italiano - Rinaldo Alessandrini - Sara Mingardo

 

Antonio Vivaldi wrote at least three settings of the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo, whose words date probably from the 4th Century and which is an integral part of the Ordinary of the Mass. Two survive: RV 588 and RV 589. A third, RV 590, is mentioned only in the Kreuzherren catalogue and presumed lost. The RV 589 Gloria is a familiar and popular piece among sacred works by Vivaldi. It was probably written at about the same time as the RV 588, possibly in 1715.
