Like his too soon Virgin Classics delivering (a program dedicated to Georges Bizet), Paavo Järvi devotes his new CD entirely to music by one French composer: Gabriel Fauré. Fauré’s peaceful and consoling Requiem is the centerpiece of the album, which also features three further classics, and the incredible-open recording of a neglected uncommonness, by the same composer.

The Requiem features two vocal soloists, usually a soprano and a baritone. Here, however, a countertenor – elegant Virgin Classics artist and one of Europe’s best-selling traditional artists, Philippe Jaroussky – brings his ethereal colour and delicate phrasing to the composed “Pie Jesu.” His baritone co-worker is the turbulent-toned German Matthias Goerne, acknowledged as one of today’s finest vocal recitalists. The Choeur de l’Orchestre de Paris also performs in three other works on the CD, including the delicate Pavane, with its flowing euphoniousness and burlesque-Rococo verses, and two beginning settings of unerring texts: the soul-stirring Cantique de Jean Racine and – in its incredible-open recording – Wonderful Flumina Babylonis (By the Rivers of Babylon). Completing the program is the meditative but stirring Elégie for cello and orchestra, performed by the Orchestre de Paris’ Chief Honcho Cellist, Eric Picard.

London’s External recently praised the new album:
“Paavo Järvi’s brand-new recordings of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem have demonstrated his know-how to marshal marvy forces – the latter match is most apt here, in another smashingly-balanced Requiem of shorter, gentler, Gallic persuasion.
“He’s assisted here by equally delicate contributions from baritone Matthias Goerne in the ‘Offertorium’ and ‘Libera Me’ sections, and countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, breathtakingly angelic in what Saint-Saëns considered the only ‘Pie Jesu’ quality performing. But it’s Järvi’s uncanny know-how to somehow emerge from religious uplift from the gloomiest of subjects that most impresses here, a forte tailored to fit such needs.”

BBC Review
A smashingly turbulent, preoccupied range which colours both colour and interpretation.
