Soprano Sandrine Piau's new project is dedicated to French baroque repertoire, offering a wide range of very beautiful arias by Rameau, Lully, Campra etc in a 100-year journey that mixes very famous music with little-know pieces, such as arias by Grétry or Sacchini > Sandrine Piau and Jérôme Correas, a former singer, founder and music director of Les Paladins, have worked together on a regular basis since their early careers, especially with William Christie.

Sarah Cunningham is probably the finest viol player in Britain today, though it Is as a chamber-music player rather than as a soloist that she is best known here and abroad. Her technical command of the seven-string bass viol is never in doubt on this CD; nor, for that matter, is her control of tone. She has chosen some of Marais' most familiar and demanding works on which to make her solo recording debut, thereby inviting comparisons with the previous generation of players, Wieland Kuijken and Jordi Savall.

Quatre ans que Mandino Reinhardt ne nous avait fait la joie d’un nouvel album… c’est long quatre ans. Mais oublions cette interminable attente puisque l’élégant guitariste strasbourgeois nous présente aujourd’hui "Le Swing du Luthier", un disque auto-produit qui mériterait bien une diffusion moins confidentielle. Car l’air de rien, face à la multitude de productions estampillées "jazz manouche" actuelle, ce disque pourrait bien remettre quelques pendules à l’heure : loin des sempiternelles reprises de Minor swing…

Paris, early Twentieth Century: in the space of three ballets, a previously unknown Russian composer revolutionised the music of his time. With The Firebird and Petrushka, respectively fairytale and folktale, and of course The Rite of Spring, a telluric invocation with its insanely innovative harmonies and rhythms, Stravinsky dynamised the Late Romantic orchestra, taking it to literally unheard-of places.

A masterpiece born of the collaboration of composer Lully and his librettist Quinault, the “tragédie en musique” called Alceste caused a scandal when it was created in 1674. The tragic register was reserved for the theater, while the music was content with the comic vein. But thanks to the combined talents of Lully and Quinault, the stage of the Royal Academy of Music saw the development of the new tragic and lyrical genre.

Loin des sentiers battus, entre les grands Français Lully et Rameau en passant par Couperin, il y a de la place pour des personnalités comme celles de Campra et Destouches. Les trois suites d’orchestre (datées du début du xviiie siècle) rassemblées ici sont tirées d’opéras ballets, genre musical particulièrement à la mode à la cour de Versailles. Successeur du ballet de cour et très longtemps avant les Ballets russes, la danse était au cœur du geste baroque. Que ce soit par l’escrime ou par les mouvements des danseurs, il y a bien cette volonté de représenter l’univers, ses forces et tutti quanti.

Difficile d’imaginer entrée en matière plus éblouissante que celle des Pins de Rome, poème symphonique composé par Respighi en 1924, deuxième volet d’une trilogie célébrant la capitale italienne, entamée huit ans plus tôt par un hommage à quatre de ses fontaines. Un pied de nez de la trompette (un si bémol aussi sonore que dissonant) clôt la lumineuse évocation des jeux d’enfants sous les résineux de la Villa Borghese. Le Lento qui s’enchaîne nous emmène à l’entrée d’une catacombe. Une mélodie de plainchant remonte des profondeurs du mystérieux sépulcre. Pas de changement de tempo pour la troisième partie, onirique scène nocturne sur le Janicule.

After Polyeucte (1878), Gounod tackled the operatic genre for the last time in 1881 with what is probably his most ambitious work, Le Tribut de Zamora. The action takes place in ninth-century Spain – from Act Two onwards, on ‘a picturesque site on the banks of the Guadalquivir before Córdoba’. Here Gounod – finally noted more for his neoclassical pastiches (Le Médecin malgré lui and Cinq-Mars) and his ardent Romanticism (Faust and Roméo et Juliette) – was given an opportunity to display his talents as an orchestrator and colourist in an exotic setting. He produced an epic in the tradition of French grand opéra, with numerous ensembles and showpiece airs. Despite an unequivocal success on its first run, despite the stirring national anthem ‘Debout! Enfants de l’Ibérie’, Le Tribut de Zamora sank into oblivion within a few short years. We can now appreciate in this opera precisely what certain detractors complained of at the time: the fact that we meet here once again the irresistible lyricism of Faust and Roméo et Juliette.
