Recensie



Met Revolution levert de Frans-Zwitserse fluitist Emmanuel Pahud een vervolg op zijn succes uit 2012 The flute king. Toen stond Frederik de Grote centraal. Nu is dat muziek uit Parijs aan het einde van de 18e eeuw, de tijd van de revolutie. Parijs was toen een trekpleister voor veel buitenlandse musici. De belangstelling voor de virtuoze muzikant groeide, vooral voor de spelers op blaasinstrumenten. Instellingen voor muziekonderwijs ontstonden evenals de concertseries. Pahud toont hier opnieuw zijn vakmanschap en virtuositeit in een viertal fluitconcerten van componisten die triomfen vierden in de 'concerts spirituel'. De begeleiding door het orkest had transparanter mogen klinken.

Emmanuel Pahud (flute)
Kammerorchester Basel, Giovanni Antonini

Widely recognised as the finest flautist performing on the world stage today, Emmanuel Pahud has joined forces with the Kammerorchester Basel, led by Giovanni Antonini, to record a programme of flute concertos by composers from the time of the French Revolution. The album, which brings together rarities by Christoph Willibald Gluck, Ignaz Pleyel, François Devienne and Luigi Gianella, reveals how the form and the instrument underwent their own musical revolution during this tumultuous period.

For his latest release, Pahud delves once again into the history and evolution of the flute in the second half of the 18th century, following the success The Flute King, his 2012 album of music written for and by the Prussian king and gifted flautist-composer Frederick the Great. ‘Pahud is outstanding…A fascinating snap-shot of the mid-18th century Berlin court,’ BBC Music Magazine enthused.

Pahud now continues on this path from Frederick the Great to the French Revolution, capturing the drama and excitement of the political upheaval that surrounded what was a golden age in music, particularly for the flute. “For me, this album is about taking you on a journey via three decades of flute concertos surrounding the events of the famous storming of the Bastille in 1789, in what was a rapid transition from Gluck’s musical idiom, shaped by opera and the Baroque – his concerto here embodies Paris before the revolution – to the Romantic and revolutionary ideal that we hear in the music that follows,” Pahud explains.

“In choosing to structure this album around these remarkable concertos, I had the great fortune of having Giovanni Antonini and the Kammerorchester Basel as partners – they defend this music with fighting spirit and a truly revolutionary fervour!”
