Release in 2019-10

Cristallisant les multiples influences de la jeune génération romantique des années 1820, la Fantastique a bouleversé tous les codes symphoniques… pour mieux redistribuer les cartes. Ce nouvel enregistrement des Siècles s’appuie plus que jamais sur une étude fine du manuscrit autographe et l’usage des instruments d’époque… y compris les cloches de la Côte-Saint-André ! L’ouvrage puisait partiellement dans un opéra de jeunesse, Les Francs-Juges, dont quasiment seule l’ouverture nous est parvenue – dont François-Xavier Roth nous rappelle qu’elle a toute sa place au répertoire symphonique berliozien.

MAHLER, Titan – Ein Tondichtung im Symphonieform

Release in 2019-05

Back to the sources !
Les Siècles has worked from the Budapest, Hamburg and Weimar manuscripts, in close collaboration with Universal Edition, the musicologist Anna Stoll Knecht and Benjamin Garzia, to offer us, on the types of instruments on which it was premiered and for the first time on record, the second version (Hamburg/Weimar 1893-94) of Mahler’s First Symphony. Initially presented as a symphonic poem in two parts and five movements entitled ‘Titan’, this version continually faced severe criticism as it developed. The fascinating reconstruction testifies in many respects to the genius of one of the greatest symphonists of the modern era!

A masterpiece first premiered by the Gürzenich Orchestra !!

The premiere of Mahler’s Third Symphony took place in June 1902 in Krefeld (not far from Düsseldorf), but it was indeed the Gürzenich Orchestra of Cologne which gave that first performance… greeted with acclaim – this was not always the composer’s experience with his masterpieces. Originally conceived as a hymn to Nature, in which the inert chaos of the opening movement is gradually left behind, the work calls for enormous forces (large orchestra, women’s choir, boys’ choir, and contralto soloist) and at each hearing leaves an unforgettable impression on the audience. Such was the case in October 2018, when François-Xavier Roth led the esteemed successors of the work’s first interpreters in this latest Mahler adventure.

Berlioz the pioneer !

A new aesthetic calls for new forms: such is the challenge the composer set for himself in the two works presented here. In Les Nuits d’été, Berlioz pioneered, well before Mahler and Ravel, a song cycle for voice and orchestra. In Harold in Italy, scored for large orchestra and solo viola, he experimented with the symphonic genre. These period-instrument performances by Les Siècles, led by François-Xavier Roth, with violist Tabea Zimmermann, also feature Stéphane Degout in the vocal cycle, heard here in the composer’s own version for baritone. File under: out of the ordinary.

A century after his death on 25 March 1918, many harmonia mundi artists are eager to pay tribute to Claude Debussy, the magician of melody and timbre, the great ‘colourist’ and father of modern music. With the musicians of Les Siècles, we have the opportunity to discover on period instruments the original colours of such key works as Jeux and the Nocturnes. After his sumptuous recording of Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé, François-Xavier Roth adds a new and splendid achievement to his discography.

A master of orchestration !
When Ravel orchestrated his works, the scoring emerged with total spontaneity, as if by magic, for he had already worked out his orchestral colours with immense care at the piano. The fascination of the Orient or the fantastic, poetic homages, the enthralling world of childhood – everything here is suffused with subtle refinement, in the use of forms inherited from the 18th century as in the choice of sonorities suited for storytelling. Who better than Les Siècles could recreate this world, as magical as that of the rarely performed Shéhérazade overture?

LES SIECLES - Sabine DEVIEILHE - MIRAGES

Sabine DEVIEILHE, Soprano
Les Siècles
François-Xavier Roth – Conductor

MIRAGES – Works of André Messager, Charles Koechlin, Claude Debussy, Léo Delibes, Maurice Delage

Release in 2017-11

This release by hot French soprano Sabine Devieilhe has multiple strengths that propelled it onto the charts right out of the box, so to speak. Appreciation for Devieilhe’s manifest vocal gifts should not obscure the superb work done by recording and mixing engineer Hugues Deschaux, working in the Salle de répétition no. 1 of the Philharmonie de Paris. Especially on the orchestral tracks featuring the group Les Siècles under François-Xavier Roth, Deschaux creates a mysterious sound environment in which Devieilhe seems to hover alluringly in the distance. This fits the programming concept in an uncanny way: Mirages explores exotic heroines in late Romantic French opera and song. This is hardly an uncommon idea in the opera of the period, French or otherwise, but Devieilhe’s focus is both close and original: moving outward from the familiar Flower Duet from Lakmé (featuring mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa), she touches on both unusual and peripherally related repertory. Both are compelling. Do not miss the rarely heard Quatre Poèmes Hindous of Maurice Delage, composed in India and making the orchestra most evocatively into a traditional Indian instrument. Likewise, Devieilhe links heroines such as Berlioz’s Ophelia to the emergence of the themes here. The mix of orchestral and piano-accompanied pieces is slightly jarring, but this is in the main both beautiful and compelling.

MAHLER, Symphonie n°5

Release in 2017-11

Immortalized in Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece “Death in Venice”, Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 (with its unforgettable Adagietto) today needs no introduction. Except to point out that the composer himself led its premiere some 113 years ago, conducting the Gürzenich Orchestra of Cologne. For this recording, the modern-day players comprising the very same ensemble are led by the city’s newly appointed General Music Director, François-Xavier Roth, which patently places this version in a class of its own.

MONNET, Mouvements, imprévus, et … pour orchestre, violon et autres machins

Release in 2017-09

Comme toute son œuvre, les Concertos de Marc Monnet déconcertent… car ils ne se reposent jamais sur des repères acquis ou des règles communément admises. Marc Monnet préfère l’inconnu, se laisse inspirer par les chocs qu’ont provoqué en lui la danse de Merce Cunningham, le cinéma de Jean-Luc Godard ou les textes d’Antonin Artaud. D’où ce style inimitable, sans cesse renouvelé, qui cherche les sensations nouvelles et une virtuosité quasi expérimentale. Le tout avec un esprit parfois provocateur qui joue avec nos attentes pour mieux les déjouer. Les interprètes de cet enregistrement (Tedi Papavrami, François-Xavier Roth, Marc Coppey, Christian Arming) sont des intimes du compositeur : ils connaissent l’homme autant que le style. D’où ce sentiment de liberté totale qui se dégage de leur interprétation tout entière au service d’une vision « intégrée » du soliste et de l’orchestre. L’un n’est plus opposé à l’autre : mais les deux renforcent l’interdépendance de leur liberté.

Ce disque a reçu le Grand prix de l’Académie Charles Cros (octobre 2017).

LES SIÈCLES

Choeur de la Radio Flamande
avec Chantal Santon-Jeffery, Julien Behr, Josef Wagner, Jean-Marie Winling,

Release in 2017-08

Chaque livre-disque de la collection « Portraits » est consacré à un compositeur français aujourd’hui oublié. Il présente, en associant le talent de nombreux artistes, un panorama musical varié de son œuvre. Le portrait de Félicien David se propose de compléter la discographie déjà disponible par des premiers enregistrements mondiaux d’ouvrages importants du compositeur. On découvrira notamment une partie de son catalogue symphonique, dont la Symphonie n° 3 et l’ouverture de son opéra-comique La Perle du Brésil, œuvre qui lança véritablement le compositeur dans la carrière lyrique. Mais c’est surtout le Christophe Colomb de 1847 qui doit être signalé, car cette ode-symphonie avec récitant prolonge ambitieusement le succès du Désert, donné au Théâtre-Italien quelques années auparavant. Ce livre-disque n’oublie pas, néanmoins, que Félicien David fut aussi un homme de salon apprécié pour sa musique intimiste et en particulier ses mélodies. On pourra ainsi découvrir des extraits des Mélodies orientales pour piano seul, un choix de romances dans le style des années 1840 et les très rares motets de jeunesse pour chœur aux effectifs variés. Le point d’orgue de ce « Portrait » réside dans l’exhumation du Jugement dernier, final prévu pour l’apothéose de l’opéra Herculanum, en définitive retranché et jamais publié jusqu’à aujourd’hui.

RAVEL, Daphnis & Chloé

Release in 2017-03

The arrival of an orchestra like Les Siècles on the harmonia mundi label is entirely logical: ever since it was founded by François-Xavier Roth in 2003, its musicians (mostly belonging to the new generation) have succeeded in placing several centuries of musical creation in perspective by playing the works they tackle on precisely the instruments used at the time of their premiere – without the slightest concession. The result is quite simple dazzling: never, since it was first heard, has Daphnis et Chloé displayed such a shimmering sound, revealing an infinity of details without ever losing sight of the subtle beauty of the most French of the great ‘Ballets Russes’.

‘At this moment in the history of music, Ravel raised the French “Impressionist” orchestral style to a sort of apogee – in a sense it is the last great comédie-ballet in the history of French music’ (François-Xavier Roth).

THE PANUFNIK LEGACIES 2

Release in 2016-01

LSO Live present an album of new works by emerging composers, all of whom have been members of the Panufnik Composers Scheme. Devised by the LSO in association with Lady Panufnik in memory of her late husband, the composer Sir Andrzej Panufnik, the Scheme began in 2005 and each year offers six composers the opportunity to write a three minute piece for the LSO. The pieces featured on this release were recorded by the Orchestra at LSO St Luke’s under the baton of François-Xavier Roth, a conductor renowned for his interpretations of contemporary music.

Following on from The Panufnik Legacies, a release which presented works by composers from across the first five years of the Scheme, this recording showcases the works of selected composers from across the first ten years of the Scheme alongside Panufnik Variations, a project that brings together Colin Matthews and Panufnik Scheme graduates. Taking a theme from Sir Andrzej Panufnik’s Universal Prayer as a starting-point, the work features a series of variations showcasing the sounds and styles of Panufnik Scheme alumni Max de Wardener, Evis Sammoutis, Christopher Mayo, Toby Young, Elizabeth Winters, Larry Goves, Raymond Yiu, Anjula Semmens and Edmund Finnis, bookended by an opening and conclusion by Colin Matthews.

Also featured on this release are works by Kim B Ashton, Leo Chadburn, Bushra El-Turk, Matthew Kaner, James Moriarty, Elizabeth Ogonek, Aaron Parker, Alastair Putt and Duncan Ward.

Colin Matthews says of the Panufnik project, ‘A real relationship develops, which continues beyond the scheme itself, so that we feel that a ‘Panufnik family’ has been established…. What is remarkable to me is the unity that has emerged from this project : a tribute both to the inspiration provided by Andrzej Panufnik, and to the faith that the LSO has shown in the Panufnik Scheme.’

The Panufnik Scheme is generously supported by Lady Hamlyn and The Helen Hamlyn Trust. The Panufnik Legacies II was generously supported by the Boltini Trust.

With “Aus Italien”, sketched while on a tour of Italy suggested to the young composer by Johannes Brahms, Richard Strauss (1864-1949) began his decisive journey into the musical form that would come to define his orchestral output, the tone poem. In this work, Strauss‘ orchestral mastery is already plainly evident. Honoring the composer’s sesquicentennial, François-Xavier Roth couples this work on his third volume of the complete Strauss tone poems with the monumental “Also sprach Zarathustra” – a work inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophic prose poem.

MAHLER, Symphonie n°1
WEBERN, Im Sommerwind

Release in 2012-03

For his debut recording for SWR music/hänssler CLASSIC, the distinguished young conductor François-Xavier Roth has carefully selected a program that will serve as a foundation for his future work with the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg. Creatively building on the romantic foundations laid by Beethoven, Schubert, Bruckner and Brahms, both Gustav Mahler and the young Anton Webern shared a common vision to push the limits of Viennese symphonic tradition.

Conductor Roth is no stranger to contemporary music, having made his conducting debut at the famous Donaueschinger Musiktage as well as being a regular guest conductor with the Ensemble intercontemporain. Maestro Roth returns to the beginning of that journey with a pair of youthful works by Mahler and Webern. Mahler’s First Symphony still has the power to raise audiences to the feet while Webern’s hyper-romantic Im Sommerwind, was the last large-scale composition he completed before he met Arnold Schoenberg.
