Jeroen van Veen, piano

Parmi les caractéristiques de Brilliant Classics, figure en bonne place la générosité de ses productions, aidé en cela par la gourmandise prolixe de Jeroen van Veen, dont les doigts de pianiste ne doivent jamais dormir. Généreux est donc ce quintuple disque compact, qui parcourt plus d’un demi-siècle de minimalisme. On y retrouve deux des trois mousquetaires américains qui ont popularisé le genre dans les années 1960 - Philip Glass (1937-) et John Adams (1947-) -, un de ceux qui a été le plus loin dans l’économie de notes - la beauté troublante de Für Alina, œuvre fondatrice du style tintinnabuli d’Arvo Pärt (1935-) -, mais aussi les outsiders hollandais que sont Simeon ten Holt (1923-2012) - son impressionant Canto Ostinato - ou le surprenant et innovant Jacob Ter Veldhuis (1951-), alias JacobTV - qui utilise les voix parlées comme autant de grooves (un peu à la manière de François Sarhan). En offrant une place à des mélodies aussi populaires que les films pour lesquels elles ont été composées - Amélie Poulain pour Yann Tiersen (1970-) ou La Leçon de Piano pour Michael Nyman (1944-), à des compositeurs qui ont inspiré le mouvement - Erik Satie (1866-1925) - ou qui, au contraire, s’en sont inspiré - Yiruma (1978-) -, cette mini-encyclopédie un peu hétéroclite prend le risque d’une introduction au minimalisme, certes accessible mais un peu fourre-tout. (Bernard Vincken)

Highlights from the award-winning, much-praised series of Brilliant Classics recordings by today’s leading champion of minimalist piano repertoire. The journey towards simplicity so comprehensively charted by Jeroen van Veen’s discography over the past decade begins chronologically with the unique world of Erik Satie. In the quietly unique music of this ever-underrated pioneer lies the seeds of so much that was to come to fruition in the latter half of the last turbulent century. Satie belonged neither to the Impressionists nor the Modernists nor any other school, and it took John Cage and the New York modernists of the 1950s to rediscover him as more than a provocateur or a purveyor of salon trifles. Yet, at much the same time on the other side of the Iron Curtain, Soviet-era composers were starting to chafe against both the tenets of serialism and also the requirements of the State for neo-Romantic hymns to labour and triumph. Arvo Pärt was reaching for the same destination as the American triumvirate of Adams, Glass and Reich, only from the other end of the stylistic spectrum. The English critic and composer Michael Nyman first used the term ‘Minimalism’ in print, and it stuck. The last 40 years have witnessed an explosion of popularity and wider interest in a world of music that transcends the four-bar sequences and relentless rhythms of pop, while forsaking the ivory tower of modernism, to offer music that speaks to listeners in search of quiet and stillness, music to meditate by as well as music to stir the blood. And for the last 15 years Jeroen van Veen has recorded much of it in his home studio in the Netherlands, as well as achieving great popular success with performances much farther afield. His recordings have been acclaimed for their nuances of touch as well as their technical command of music demanding formidable reserves of precision and patience. The present collection also includes several new recordings, of Simeon ten Holt and the latest album by Lodovico Einaudi, which sold out houses around the world when the composer toured it last year. This indispensable digest of minimalist piano is the perfect starting point for a new listener but it also holds considerable attractions for seasoned collectors.
