Notes and Editorial Reviews
Mozart's 250th : an intimist portrait of the composer The works on this recording extend from the first effort of an 11-year old child, An die Freude (To Joy), K. 53, composed in the autumn of 1768, to three works dates on the same day in 1791, Im Frühlingsanfang (At the Beginning of Spring), K. 597, Sehnsucht nach dem Frühling (Yearning for Spring), K. 596, and Das Kinderspiel (A Child at Play), K. 598. An exception is the little German Masonic cantata Die ihr des unermesslichen Weltalls (You Who Revere the Creator of the Immense Universe), K. 619, which uses the unusual combination of voice and pianoforte, and was composed in July 1791. What does one find running through these works? Everywhere the same sense -- which, with Mozart, is so precise -- of the combined significance of words and music. As well, a certain blend of seriousness and irony, of depth as well as childish naivety, all supported by a sure theatrical sense. Suzie LeBlanc began singing in choirs of her native Acadia. University studies in harpsichord then sparked her interest in 17th- and 18th-century music. She has since distinguished herself in a career focusing on the Baroque and Classical repertoire, dividing her time between concert performances, opera and research. Yannick Nézet -Séguin is as well-loved by the public as he is appreciated by his peers, who awarded him the Canada Council for the Arts Virginia Parker Prize in September 2000. At the helm of the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal since March 2000, he became Artistic Director of the Concerts Populaires de Montréal in 2001, at a time which coincided with the Orchestre Métropolitain's official designation as a formal orchestra. As a pianist, he is a recitalist in great demand.
