Chiara Cipelli, piano

Le langage très personnel d’Olivier Messiaen est connu pour être coloré, poétique et évocateur d’une forte spiritualité. Après un enregistrement remarqué consacré au compositeur italien Bruno Bettinelli, Chiara Cipelli aborde des pages pianistiques peu jouées de l’auteur de "Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus". Elle parvient à souligner les accents indicibles et invisibles, si singuliers de l’esthétique musicale du musicien. Le programme de ce disque est d’abord constitué des huit préludes évocateurs et impressionnistes. Ces pièces finement ciselées créent un univers où dialoguent l’espace et le temps, le son et la couleur. Le jeu subtil de Chiara Cipelli, sait rendre à ces dernières la complexité des rythmes et des harmonies, et traduire avec justesse l’esprit de méditation et le mystère de la foi. Dans "la Pièce pour le tombeau de Paul Dukas", l’artiste parvient à saisir le degré de recueillement idéal. Enfin, dans la "Fantaisie burlesque", dont on pourrait croire qu’elle cède à un relâchement musical grotesque, la poétique du merveilleux et de l’humour l’emporte sur toute forme d’extravagance. (Jacques Potard)

Chiara Cipelli made a notable debut on Brilliant Classics in 2019 with the little-known music of the Milanese composer and teacher Bruno Bettinelli: ‘presented with wonderful vigour and colour by the fine young Lombardy native Chiara Cipelli.’ (Fanfare magazine, November 2019) Now she turns her attention to the early works of Olivier Messiaen which are contemporary with much of Bettinelli’s piano music. Dating from 1929, the cycle of Eight Preludes finds Messiaen at his most impressionistic, with an opening, entrancing evocation of a dove that perhaps owes more to the spare language of Ravel in the ‘Oiseaux tristes’ of Miroirs than it does to his own, later and more extrovert transcriptions of birdsong. These Preludes strike a prevailing mood of reflection and calm, tending towards a French but uncharacteristic melancholy. Already in the second Prelude the 21-year-old Messiaen is trying out the effect of a visionary, aspiring melody over the top of a solemn chorale – the master organ improviser at a very early stage of development (he had not even set eyes on an organ manual until three years earlier). The rarely encountered Pièce pour le tombeau de Paul Dukas strikes an even more sombre note, as a piece written by Messiaen in memory of his much-loved teacher of composition at the Paris Conservatoire. Here is a superb example of Messiaen’s chorale style, at once ecstatic and severe, at its most imposing and yet compressed (lasting only four minutes). Thereafter, Chiara Cipelli’s album strikes a more extrovert note, with the Fantaisie Burlesque of 1932 and a pair of the Quatre Etudes de rythme with which the composer revolutionised his own language in the early 1950s and prefigured much avant-garde music by his pupils such as Boulez and Stockhausen, In the two Ile de feu studies, every aspect of composition is systematised according to a pre-arranged plan – not only notes in the 12-tone method devised by Schoenberg, but rhythms and even durations. Yet the results are much too stark and fiery to be confused with anyone but Messiaen. Chiara Cipelli ends her recital with a genuine rarity, the standalone Prelude which Messiaen wrote in 1964 but withheld, so that it only saw the light of day in 2000, eight years after his death. This reveals similarities to his earlier Preludes and in the same time incorporates his later interest in bird-songs: it’s a must-hear for anyone interested in Messiaen’s unique world.
