Carter and John Corigliano. Presented here by leading interpreters of this music, these two pieces are emblematic of the rich stylistic diversity of the American continent. John Corigliano’s Clarinet Concerto of 1977 showcases the soloist’s virtuosity. It is a highly sensitive work in which the clarinettist plays the role of a valiant hero weathering the storm, the tumultuous, tempestuous material of the orchestra, glinting like a flash of lightning among the discordant detonations of the horns and the thunderclaps of the percussion. But the tumult soon makes way for dreams, the purely melancholy power of the music of this American master, sometimes recalling the most moving moments of his Violin Concerto, which served as material for François Girard’s film The Red Violin (Oscar for Best Film Score 1999).A different style and a different way of introducing the narrative is found in Elliott Carter’s Clarinet Concerto, composed twenty years later, in 1997. This piece gives the impression of averitable musical dramaturgy, in which each instrument is treated individually. The composer also treats the concerto itself in a new way, since he sets up an alternating dialogue between the soloist and each of the instrumental groups, which are independent of each other and laid out in a semi circle. The style of the work is characterised by both virtuosity and precision in the articulations and the accents.Elliott Carter, whose 104th birthday is celebrated this year, is unquestionably one of the most inventive composers of his time. Two worlds, two visions, given a magnificent performance by the clarinet of Eddy Vanoosthuyse under the baton of Paul Meyer.
