Image Opera Duets and Arias

"Sittande vid stereon svävar jag in i ett parallellt, hisnande vackert universum."

"Not to make it sound like a warm bath, but this really is one of those recital discs to immerse yourself in. There's a sense of luxury to the whole thing, in the splendour of Concerto Italiano's playing, in Rinaldo Alessandrini's long-view pacing, above all in two of the richest voices before the public today. Sandrine Piau and Sara Mingardo are a match made in Handelian heaven. The former's creamy soprano blends superbly with her dark yet receptive contralto colleague. At times they almost seem to mesh, as if into one instrument. And yet there is never any doubt that these are two highly individual and intelligent artists. Sample the alertness of the back-and-forth in the Orlando recitative, or the reflectiveness that follows in the duet. Or the way they complement each other temperamentally as well as vocally in the Ottone piece that closes the recital. In fact, jump in almost anywhere and you'll hear drama that pulses with life and just happens to be incredibly well sung to boot. This is the sort of project that could have, on the one hand, all too easily become a superficial showpiece for canary fanciers, or on the other, overwrought in its earnestness to make dramatic effects quickly. Alessandrini, no less than his soloists, will have none of either. All here sounds natural, truthful, genuine. Simply magnificent."

- The meeting of two voices

- A heavenly coloratura for the lightness and the spine, a velvet contralto for the unctuousness and the spice

- 2009 Haendel's year for the 250th anniversary of his death

'Taïga Maya' is a lavish project involving music, visuals and text and is inspired by the Mayan prophecies that predict the end of the world in 2012. Written and produced by Thierry Van Roy, keyboard player and former producer of Real World, it also features Melanie Gabriel on vocals.

The concept of the album is this - a meteorite hits the earth, knocks it off its axis, and the oceans dry up. This condemns half of the globe to live in perpetual darkness and the other half in perpetual light. Great migrations of populations begin, leading to surprising and unexpected human and musical encounters.

The Mosaïques Quartet trained with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and his Concentus Musicus, cultivating a taste for authenticity, the path they subsequently trod, starting in Vienna in 1987 and illuminated by Haydn and Mozart, led them to develop a collective colour. Here, their mosaic stretches to the mellowness of the fortepiano and the basset clarinet, an instrument partly invented by Stadler and suggested by the wide tessitura of the Quintet, which is what makes this version so special.

Wolfgang Meyer expresses the light and dark facets of Mozart's close friend, both soloist and trusted ear, eschewing emphasis and torment, constantly radiant and bonded to the ensemble.

Manuel Rocheman PIANO
Mathias Allamane DOUBLE-BASS
Mathieu Chazarenc DRUMS

One of the best Jazz-pianist in France, Manuel Rocheman, former student of the famous Martial Solal, presents here a new project, dedidated to Bill Evans. If some Evans compositions may be here on this albums, its main purpose is the very specific musical universe of Bill Evans, with some tracks & covered & even some new compositions by Rocheman.

"Bill Evans, the most European of jazz pianists, combines Skryabin, Chopin, Ravel, Satie and jazz in a wonderful way that brings European and Afro-American music together. His music always sings; he doesn't just play notes on the piano, he constructs beautiful melodies. He personifies a kind of jazzy romanticism mixed with the spiky power of bebop. His phrasing is always subtle, elegant and singing, and he plays with the utmost expression, without ever using mere effects. Bill Evans has always been an inspiration to me, and I wanted this album to be an homage to him."

Image Medea’s Fury
Exciting musical baroque variations on a myth: Médée.

Opera remained an exclusively courtly and princely genre throughout the first third of the seventeenth century, when it found in mythological subject matter the source of the supernatural, one of the cornerstones of the Baroque aesthetic. The intention was to arouse in the spectator the astonishment that, proper to tragedy, which the Florentine theorists sought to revive in a wholly sung drama. Thus the myths of Orpheus, Arion, and Daphne nourished the first ‘favole per musica’, performed in Florence and Mantua to an audienc of aristocrats and academicians, before other characters with magical powers took over from them: Armida, Alcina, and Medea.

The last-named, granddaughter of the Sun, sorceress and sister to Circe, traverses the whole history of the opera –Cherubini, of course, but also such varied incarnations as those of Handel and Mercadante, right up to Pascal Dusapin.

From the XVIIth century to the mid-XVIIIth century, the Médée’s musical myth has been a great success on stage and this very-well structured program reveals after all a character very close to us.

With EITHER WAY and like a painter rendering his own reality, I give you a portrait in black and white and in my own way of these two american icons such as Ella and Marilyn The "Love letter" addressed to Ella Fitz-gerald, with my previous album "Ella, my Dear..."was a version for full orchestra, magnificently arranged by Ivan Jullien of Ella's repertoire, my first and essential source of inspiration.

Entirely re-orchestrated in jazz quartet idiom for EITHER WAY, the stand-ards of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer or Duke Ellington sound minimalist on this album in comparison to the previous one, with the exception of "But not for me" where I wanted a move, assisted by the mysterious, heartrending voice of Mamani, towards Africa.

In the other volume of this diptych, devoted to Marilyn, I make a com-pletely personal proposition of the emblematic repertoire of that fragile star, perhaps even more exposed in her singing, than in her acting. You know the place we are going, let me take you there my way...all roads lead to Ella & Marilyn.

Ella, Norma, Black or White... EITHER WAY. To these amazing and unusual women, with all my love and respect..."

Le Cercle de l'harmonie / Jérémie Rhorer

This recording of a live performance of music by the young Beethoven - his first operatic, symphonic and concert masterpieces - features one of the best of the newer ensembles on the international scene, Le Cercle de L'Harmonie under its conductor Jérémie Rhorer. The lively and innovative programme includes the early dramatic scene "Ah Perfido", the concert aria "No non turbati", "O wär' ich schon mit dir verein" (an aria from the first version of Fidelio, which was titled "Leonore"), as well as his First Symphony, and the first of the two Romances for violin and orchestra.

Formed in April 2005 in Deauville by Jeremy Rhorer and Julien Chauvin (first violin), le Cercle de l'Harmonie soon established itself as a significant force in the performance of great symphonic and operatic repertoires of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The ensemble is now invited to appear at major venues - including London's Barbican Hall in June - and with artists such as Diana Damrau and Philippe Jaroussky, with whom it has recorded two CDs for Virgin Classics. This, the first in a series of productions for Ambroisie, presents Jérémie Rhorer's first recording of works by Beethoven.

Today the music of Beethoven is regarded as a remarkable link in the chain of evolution of Western music, a judgement that is based mainly on the pieces he composed after 1800.

However there was in his artistic development a transitional period, around the turn of the century, when the works he composed appear to belong to the Classical tradition while presenting ideas that were to be developed later. This recording features the major works of that period, the Symphony No. 1 in C major, and the Romance for violin and orchestra in F major, op. 50. There are also three vocal works on the disc, the aria "O wär' ich schon mit dir verein" from "Leonore", the first version of Beethoven's only opera "Fidelio", the dramatic scene "Ah Perfido", and the concert aria "No non turbati".

1. The Creatures of Prometheus, op. 43 (1801)
2. O wär' ich schon mit dir verein, aria from Leonore (1805)
3. No, non turbarti" WoO 92a (1801-1802)

The opera, Pelléas et Mélisande, first performed in Paris in 1902, had never been staged in Russia. In June 2007, director Olivier Py and conductor Marc Minkowski produced Claude Debussy's opera in Moscow for the first time, with a Franco- Russian cast. To spectators unfamiliar with Pelléas et Mélisande, Debussy, or even opera, we wanted to create a sensory, imaginary space that they could make their own, without partiality or preconceived notions. "We never see but the reverse side of fate, even of our own," the old King Arkel sings. On screen, the shimmering world of the theatre becomes an allegorical cave of the world, peopled with Claude Debussy, Maurice Maeterlinck, Olivier Py, Marc Minkowski, as well as young Russian singers, technicians, extras, an entire brotherhood of beings who are "mysterious like everyone.

Tania Maria PIANO, VOCAL
Eddie Gomez BASS

Tempo is the meeting of a renowned Brazilian pianist and singer Tania Maria and a legendary bass player. Renowned as one of the most famous Brazilian pia-nists and singers since the 70's, Tania Maria has based her art in playing Brazilian tunes with a very tasty blend of jazz. Her meeting with Eddie Gomez, one of the best jazz bass player ever - he spent a long time in the great Bill Evans trio and others - is an amazing mix be-tween Brazil & jazz.

Tania Maria is scatting with brio and playing her me-lodious piano part while Eddie Gomez is playing won-derful harmonic bass and is improvising when she's soloing on piano on such beautiful melodies as Estate or A Chuva Caiu. This new record is a new step in the Brazil / Jazz area and the successful meeting of two legends of American Modern Music.

Vivaldi Edition
The Vivaldi Edition, a recording venture conceived by the Italian musicologist Alberto Basso and the independent label Naïve, is one of the most ambitious recording projects of the twenty-first century. Its principal objective is to record the massive collection of Vivaldi autograph manuscripts preserved today in the Biblioteca Nazionale Universitaria in Turin, some 450 works in all. This treasure trove is none other than the private library of scores Vivaldi had at home at the time of his death in Vienna in 1741 and includes his extant operas, hundreds of concertos, sacred compositions and cantatas. After a chaotic itinerary which took them from Venice to Genoa, then to Casale Monferrato in Piedmont, these manuscripts ended up almost by accident at the library in Turin, which, realising their priceless value, managed to acquire them around 1930 thanks to two generous patrons. The collection includes fifteen operas and several hundred concertos, as well as sacred compositions and secular cantatas. Most of this music has not been heard since the eighteenth century. The release of more than one hundred recordings, which began in the year 2000, will continue until 2015. The Vivaldi Edition's goal is to make this extraordinary wealth of music available to the public and at the same time to reveal the full genius of Vivaldi, not only as a composer of instrumental music, for which he was already known, but as the creator of some of the eighteenth century's most important vocal music. Beyond the realm of recording, the Vivaldi Edition is active in promoting affiliated concerts in major festivals and concert series throughout Europe and in developing multimedia projects which bring together musicians, film-makers, authors, visual artists and others.

Duilio Galfetti
The release of Galfetti's recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons on Claves-TSI/Arte revealed Duilio M. Galfetti as one of the leading Baroque violinists on the international scene. He began studying music at the age of seven, first the mandolin, and later the violin. After obtaining his diploma in violin from the Dreilinden Conservatory of Lucerne in the class of Gunars Larsens (1989) he started a long collaboration with the Milanese Baroque ensemble il Giardino Armonico, which enabled him not only to deepen his knowledge of music played on period instruments and observing historically informed performance practice, but also to appear as a soloist on mandolin, violin and viola at the leading international festivals, including the Festival van Vlaanderen in Bruges, the Internationale Musikfestwochen in Lucerne, the Bach-Tage at the Philharmonie in Berlin, the Styriarte Festival in Graz, Musica e Poesia a San Maurizio in Milan, and the Schleswig- Holstein Musik Festival. During these years he made a number of major recordings for Teldec (Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, Vivaldi's complete mandolin and lute concertos, Musica da Camera a Napoli) which were enthusiastically received by the specialised critics and won numerous awards (Diapason d'Or, 10 de Répertoire, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Gramophone Award). In 1997, Duilio Galfetti became a member of the Swiss-Italian Radio Symphony Orchestra (Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana) and founded the ensemble I Barocchisti with Diego Fasolis. This group works in close collaboration with the Choir of Swiss- Italian Radio, and has already made many recordings acclaimed by press and public alike, among them Bach's St John Passion, orchestral suites, and complete motets, Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine, Handel's Messiah, Giovanni Paisiello's La Passione di Gesù Cristo, and Vivaldi's Juditha triumphans and recorder concertos (with Maurice Steger). Duilio Galfetti has also recorded for Naxos, Chandos, BBC Music, Auvidis, Ex Libris, Arts, and for the leading European radio stations. He was recently asked by Claudio Abbado to appear as mandolin soloist on tour with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.

Image Piano Sonata No. 19 / 4 Impromptus
Nikolai Lugansky, piano

For his first Schubert recording, Nikolai Lugansky has chosen one sonata and four impromptus from the late output of the iconic Viennese composer.

Schubert composed his last three piano sonatas in Vienna during the summer of 1828, shortly before his death on 19 November at the age of 31. The first of the three, in C minor D958, is the most impassioned, and the power and dark energy emerging from its four movements are reminiscent of Beethoven. After the latter's death on 26 March 1827, Schubert felt liberated from the weight of idolatry and composed such masterpieces as these final sonatas, the Lieder cycle 'Winterreise', and the 'Impromptu's for piano, the last four of which are also featured on this recording. The elegance and technical prowess of Nikolai Lugansky's playing are perfectly suited to these masterpieces. He records exclusively for the Naïve-Ambroisie label.

Image Odisea negra
Odisea negra, el mar de las memorias is the second recording on naïve of La Chimera, an ensemble whose activities focus on the creation of original projects at the intersection of various art forms, with a special interest in the links between past and present.

Odisea negra is a tribute to the Caribbean world that, over the last centuries, and like the Mediterranean Sea several centuries before, has set an amazing identity while being a unique mix of cultures in which slavery, war and pain have been the main actors. Hence this is an exploration of various links between America, Africa and Europe. This is an album that can be launched and positioned as a world music project.

Argentinian musician and conductor Eduardo Egüez created this project with Venezuelian singer Iván García. The contribution of the renowed Senegalian singer Ablaye Cissoko is probably the main achievement of this project that, as Eduardo Egüez wrote in the inside notes "explores the 'imaginative world' of black Central America from its origins to the present, traversing many musical styles characteristic of that imaginative world, from the polyphonic negrillas of the sixteenth century to the Cuban habanera, son, and bolero; from the Baroque jácara to the Venezuelan merengue and joropo."

Tania Maria was born into a family of amateur musicians in Sao Luis, north-western Brazil, she began studying the piano and the age of seven and was just 13 when she was the hands-down first-prize winner in a regional competition as the leader of a group started by her father. At the time, bossa nova was all the rage from Rio to New York, adding a peppery touch to jazz like an exotic local spice.

Just three years later, however, this talented young woman with a bright future tried to distance herself from music by studying law. Her figners continued to yearn for the piano, however, and she finally gave in to its insistent call, committing herself to music with more fervour than ever. After shuttling between gigs in Rio and Sao Paulo, she recorded her first album at the age of 20, for Warner.

As early as 1969, her first musical performances clearly showed her potential and her predilections: an astounding mix of Brazilian rhythms and jazz harmonies, underpinning a remarkable natural gift for spinning sophisticated melodies. After 36 years and 25 albums, and by way of such runaway hits as Piquant, Come with me and Made in New York, Tania Maria stands out as one of the truly great talents on the Brazilian music scene, where she is known for her unmistakable voice, whose sultry low tones can lay down a serious groove, and for her percussive touch at the piano, where things can suddenly take a more classical turn. She has also done a lot of travelling in her time, from the Paris nightlife of the 70s, where she met Claude Nougaro, to the New York fusion years in the 80s; she has lived in both cities, and both continue to live in her.

She has also taken part in virtually every major jazz festival in the world, from Montreux to New Orleans, Tokyo and Nice. Tania Maria is an accomplished musician who, though always attracted to swing and jazz, has never forgotten the fundamental beats of her native choro and samba.

Vivaldi's oboe concertos represent the largest single collection of oboe concertos by an 18th-century composer which have come down to us today. The first Venitian reference to an oboe is in 1692. It was thus a new instrument in Venice and it is amazing that Vivaldi was already writing highly advanced concertos which thoroughly exploit the technical possibilities of the instrument. Musically the principal ingrediant in these concertos is the wonderful contrast between allegro movements which are brillant and highly virtuostic and slow movements which are extremely touching and expressive. The occasional allegro non molto movements introduce more moderate colours and emotions creating an overall, multi-coloured panorama.

In the nineteenth century, Gypsy music and Hungarian music joyfully combined forces. For the Viennese, Hungary was represented above all by its dances with their lively rhythms.

Desperate heroines - the French soprano sings Mozart arias.

Sandrine Piau feels Mozart as the linchpin of their entire musical life and as essential for their inner balance - the greater was their joy that they could win the venerable Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra under the baton of Ivor Bolton for Desperate Heroines. Topic are the arias desperate heroines (Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro Giunia from Lucio Silla Sandrina from La Finta Giardiniera, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Aspasia of Mithridates, Ilia from Idomeneo, Aminta in Il Re Pastore and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro) recorded in the Mozarteum Foundation.

Being able to create and share music together, as 3 siblings, is a unique situation. Or so people tell us. We know no other way - it is as natural to us as breathing. But with the years we have become more and more grateful, realizing the wonderful gift we have received. The idea of recording with the great Jon Hendricks came to us after we met him in Brazil in 2010, where Jon sat in with our band. The connection felt magical and we all agreed that we must record together. We didn't know it would be so soon. Thank you, Jon, for your amazing spirit, joy, stories and swing!! We want to thank the hard swinging Aaron, Matt and Greg: it was a thrill to have you on board with us for this one!

This album is dedicated to our parents, Bilha & David Cohen - without their love and support none of this would have been possible. Thanks to you music is our passion and our life - the greatest gift one (or three) could ever ask for!

In loving memory of our friend Amit Golan.

Vivaldi sävelsi Catone in Utica -oopperan vain neljä vuotta ennen kuolemaansa. Teos löydettiin uudelleen vasta vuonna 1926. Tähän mennessä teoksen alkuosaa ei ole löydetty, joten äänite sisältää oopperan 2. ja 3.näytöksen, jotka ovat olemassa alkuperäiskäsikirjoituksina.

Topi Lehtipuu on noussut nopeasti arvostetuimpien tenorien joukkoon. Hän julkaisi sooloalbuminsa Arie per Tenore, joka sisälsi Vivaldin ooppera-aarioita, Naïve-merkille vuonna 2010. Lisäksi Lehtipuuta kuullaan sivulauluroolissa Naïven vuosina 2009 ja 2010 julkaistuissa kahden Vivaldi-oopperan levytyksessä: La Fida Ninfa sekä Ottone in Villa.

The third release in the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project, 'Parallel Tones' takes two iconic works both united by New York. Strauss's 'Sinfonia Domestica' - debuted at Carnegie Hall and featuring four saxophones in what was the composer's idea of the 'American' sound - and Ellington's 'Harlem', a big band piece very much inspired by Strauss's tone poems.

These two 'parallel tones' - one going from Europe to America and one from America back in time to Europe - morph 19th century European musical language with that of the American 20th century, crossing paths in New York. Launched in 2014, the KJSP series features projects across all of Järvi's ensembles and is characterised by the conductor's unmistakable approach in taking a fresh look at the old, with concepts and presentation that transcend the borders of classical music.

Patricia Kopatchinskaja, VIOLIN
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Vladimir Jurowski, CONDUCTOR

Patricia Kopatchinskaja's fifth recording on naïve is dedicated to the violin concertos of two Russian great composers of the 20th century: Stravinsky and Prokofiev. Recorded with leading orchestra and conductor London Philharmonic Orchestra, the disc offers intense, exhilarating, ardent performances, as usually with Patricia Kopatchinskaja.

She is recognized as "bringing a particularly personal intensity to everything she touches" (BBC). Her previous recording, featuring Bartok, Eötvös and Ligeti concertos and conducted by Peter Eötvös himself, will be one of the winners of the Gramophone Awards (UK) on September 17th and the Echo Klassik Awards(Germany) on October 6th. Moreover, the release of the Prokofiev- Stravinsky recording is supported by a large number of live performances in Europe - see next page.

The two violin concertos coupled on this recording display as many affinities as they do divergences. Both stem from creators in conflict with their native Russia - one choosing to return there, the other settling permanently in exile; both belong to the aesthetic of the 'return to order' observed from 1920 onwards and characterised by the reappropriation of models from the past. If Prokofiev preserves the traditional bases of the concerto, he combines them with a search for a new lyricism. As for Stravinsky, he reworks tried and trusted models while offering a deliberately neutral, distanced expressivity.

- "Rapsodia" was the name of the former band of Victor Kopatchinsky who is definitely one of the stars of the cimbalom! Patricia wrote in the long and very personal text of the inside notes: "He grew up to become the most famous cimbalom virtuoso in the former Soviet Union, and he called his ensemble 'Rapsodia'. [...] My parents were constantly travelling with their ensemble, playing 300 concerts every year: in the Kremlin for the government and the generals, in factories and prisons, in Siberia, North Africa, and Latin America."

- With her father (cymbalum), mother (violin) and friends such as Mihaela Ursuleasa she performs works rooted in Eastern Europe: traditional Moldovan music but also pieces such as Ravel's Tzigane, that have a Gypsic inspiration.

- This is a very lively, dynamic, but also deeply moving project. All the works performed here are played in a way you never heard before.

Following three highly praised recordings of Russian orchestral music (V5068,V5073, and V5256), this is the latest recording made for Naïve from the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and its exciting young conductor Tugan Sokhiev. It pairs two more great Russian masterpieces, Shostakovich's effervescent Festive Overture, and one of Tchaikovsky's best-loved symphonies, No. 5 in E minor.

After spending three years as its principal guest conductor and artistic adviser, Tugan Sokhiev became music director of the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse in 2008. Since then their first three discs for Naïve have received exceptional reviews, and they have performed many critically acclaimed concerts across Europe and Asia. Tugan Sokhiev has just been named music director designate of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and will take up his new role at the start of the 2012-13 season.

"Crucial to the overall effectiveness of the performance is Tugan Sokhiev's sharp-eared conducting of the Toulouse Capitole Orchestra, in which colour is deftly and discerningly applied, impetus strong and the shifts in the music's temperament seamlessly executed". - Gramophone's review of Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No 2 (V5256)

Image Le Desert
Conducted by Laurence Equilbey and featuring the renowned Accentus choir and Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, this new recording of one of the French masterpieces of the mid-19th century is a real discovery.French composer Felicien David spent 4 years in Egypt and Algeria before returning to Paris, where he composed this romantic 'ode symphonie' which pandered to the popular orientalist trend and was a huge success throughout Europe.Born in 1810, Felicien David's voyage took him to Egypt and Algeria between 1831 and 1835. He returned to his homeland with the intention of 'singing of the East' to French ears and making a name for himself as a composer in Paris - at that time, the musical crossroads of Europe. In December 1844, David reached the heights of fame when his ode-symphonie 'Le Desert' was given at the Theatre-Italien. Berlioz extended an enthusiastic welcome to the work, in which he saw the reflection of his own aesthetic experiments and in February 1845 he conducted 'Le Desert' himself in a concert at the Cirque des Champs-elysees.Berlioz had tried his hand at a mixed genre with 'Romeo et Juliette' in 1839, namely the 'symphonie dramatique', midway between the oratorio and the symphony, but in 1844 David ushered in a new manner of conceiving the narrative: he does not project his listeners into the heart of a frenetic action, but rather asks them to observe a landscape, as if they were standing in front of three successive tableaux: a caravan advancing a nocturnal halt a sunrise. This phenomenal success, however, such as Berlioz was never to enjoy in his lifetime, had a detrimental effect on David's future career.The reception of the oratorio 'Moise au Sinai' (March 1846) already suffered from this factor, and the composer of 'Le Saphir' (premiered at the Opera Comique in 1865) was even reproached for having 'got off his camel'. In Le Monde, July 1868, a caricature by the cartoonist Achille Lemont depicted an ageing Felicien David holding a lyre with broken strings, seated on the skeleton of a camel and chained to a post bearing the inscription 'Desert a perpetuite' . .

This is the 49th title in the Vivaldi Edition and the 5th volume, out of approximately 12, of the series dedicated to the violin concertos whose manuscripts are held in the National Library of Turin.

All the concertos selected here are linked to German violinist Johann Georg Pisendel, member of the Dresden orchestra, who spent time in Venice in 1716-17, with the Electoral Prince of Saxony Friedrich August. Vivaldi and Pisendel became very close friends and the Red Priest composed several works for Pisendel. Moreover, Pisendel copied and performed afterwards in Germany several concertos by Vivaldi This series of 7 concertos is an overview of the complete art of Vivaldi as a composer and violinist: large in scale of music, invention, expression, energy, power of evocation, considerable virtuosity.

For his first recording, Mélodies, he has selected a series of French melodies by Debussy, Duparc, Hahn, Chabrier, Saint-Saëns and Ravel. As for him, this sort of recital is the essence of singing.

Image L'Olimpiade
The opera L'Olimpiade is performed by Venice Baroque Orchestra and a range of high-level soloists such as Karina Gauvin, Romina Basso, Franziska Gottwald or Nicholas Phan.

In the 18th century, 1,300 years after the last Olympic Games in ancient times, the Olympic theme was highly fashionable.
Many composers based operas of the libretto L'Olimpiade by Metastasio.

This recording has been structured to contain all of Metastasio's original arias; it is a pasticcio in the sense that the music is by 16 different composers amongst the many that set the libretto between 1733 and the end of the century, such as Leo, Hasse, Galuppi, Sarti, Myslivecek, Paisiello, Pérez, Vivaldi, Gassmann, Caldara, Traetta, Jommelli, Cherubini, Pergolesi, Piccinni and Cimarosa.

For those just discovering this nineteen-year-old American violinist, the term "revelation" aptly applies. For his début in the recording studio he has chosen two seemingly opposed concertos: Mendelssohn's famous violin concerto and the magic concerto composed by his compatriot, John Adams. "Implacably melodic", says Adams of his work - a point the two pieces prove to have in common in this magnificent performance by Kristjan Järvi and his Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Sonia Wieder-Atherton occupies a unique position in today's musical world. A performer with a very broad repertoire reflecting her imagination, a conceiver of projects, a musician sought after by numerous contemporary composers, the thrust of her career can sometimes be surprising but her choices merely substantiate her approach to music. Following studies at the Paris Conservatory in the class of Maurice Gendron and lessons with Rostropovich, she left for Moscow to study for two years with Natalia Chakhovskaya at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. In 1986, shortly after her return, she won the Rostropovich Competition. She plays as a soloist with the Orchestre de Paris, the Orchestre National de France, the National Orchestra of Belgium, the Liège Philharmonic, the Israel Philharmonic, the Gulbenkian Orchestra of Lisbon, the Luxembourg Philharmonic, the Orchestra of the NDR in Hanover, and so on.

DVD: Istanbul Symphony, Hezarfen Concerto, Live concerts & documentary

Fazil Say's first symphony, 'Istanbul', is a tribute to the legendary main Turkish city, a bridge between Europe and Asia, an absolutely exciting universe. Each movement is representative of something unique and specific about the city. Mixing Occidental music with turkish folkmusic, much of this inspiration appears to have come from places within and around the city that Say has lived for almost ten years.

This is the third recording of works composed by Fazil Say, following the successful 'Black Earth' [V4954] released in 2003 and '1001 Nights in the Harem' [V5147] released in 2009.

Fazil Say: Naturally, the Istanbul that I have been trying to describe was always a nostalgic, dreamy, vintage Istanbul. The composer, the work, the ney player, everyone is in search of that Istanbul. And what they want to find, what they want to come back to, is the hijaz theme of "Nostalgia" which comes before the F sharp formation at the beginning of our symphony. And just as the symphony rose through the rustling of the waves of the Sea of Marmara at the very beginning, and so at the end it will be buried in the waves again with hijaz makam theme.

The pianist Igor Kamenz plays sonatas of Italian composers. Domenico Scarlatti was born in 1685 as son of Alessandro Scarlatti Baroque composers, and went in 1719 to the royal court to Lisbon to teach the then nine-year-old Portuguese princess Maria Bárbara. Ten years later, Barbara was Queen of Spain. Scarlatti accompanied his music-loving and very gifted student until his death in 1757 as Hofcembalist, composer and teacher. He created 555 harpsichord sonatas, which were in their diversity, harmonic boldness, impulsiveness and Mediterranean joy of life ahead of her time. He also reached into them indirectly to elements of the then unknown at court Iberian folklore. Igor Kamenz, student of Vitaly Margulis and Sergiu Celibidache, put 18 of these sonatas by harmonic, thematic and dramaturgical criteria to a suite together, which he presented at a grand piano. So he created a tribute to Domenico Scarlatti, which is the daring, the virtuosity and emotional range of this baroque creative genius full justice.

"In my view, Haydn's music touches us with its great love, above all love of humanity, for in his compositions he has much to tell us about people and their stories. About children, for example: from time to time I have an impression of two little girls playing in a garden. And Haydn has set their conversations, their voices, their cries, their reactions to music. Yes, I really believe that's what inspired him. Just as he was inspired by the happiness and ripeness of old people, but also by dreams, animals, nature, day or night - I sense all of that.

I'm not surprised that Beethoven, in his great sonata masterpieces, clearly learnt such a great deal from Haydn's sonatas.

The essence of Haydn's music is life. His own life, or ours today, the life of performers and listeners, or whatever - in his music we meet so much that rings true. Behind each sonata, and even each movement, on this recording, I sense that there is a little story. And we as performers sometimes have to discover that story in our imagination, to tease out the concealed humour, the hidden sarcastic comments...

Sometimes it seems as if, with the craziest elements in the composer's armoury, he's getting angry with the 'boredom' he sees around him, the people, the circumstances . . .

Music becomes here a secret, intimate story that dispenses with words, but always has something to tell us... "

At the age of twenty-eight, Sarah Nemtanu, who has played with many of the most renowned orchestras, has just recorded her first album, with the mischievous title of Gypsic. This young French violinist, born in Romania, was given carte blanche for this recording by Armand Amar, her producer, and Naïve, and without turning her back on her passion for art music, she decided to use her talent to perform pieces from the classical repertoire, in arrangements bringing out their Balkan fibre. Her aim is by no means to disconcert the listener, but, as she points out, to "refresh" these works by enabling us to hear them differently. First violin solo with the Orchestre National de France, and also the violinist in Radu Mihaileanu's film Le Concert (2009), Sarah Nemtanu is a Bohemian, cosmopolitan musician, who on this first recording confuses the issue further by teaming up for four of the titles with Chilly Gonzales, who is well known for his piano improvisations and his familiarity with electronic music. Both attentive and brilliant, he brings an implicit folie douce and extravagance to these performances, which are nevertheless perfectly faithful: Blues, Ravel's La Berceuse, or Tzigane, simply accompanied on a luthéal (a kind of prepared piano), following the composer's wishes, the latter played by Romain Descharmes. The result is a surprising mixture, impressive in its respect and precision, and delightful in its insubordination to form and genre: the well-named Gypsic is an "outlaw" who recognises no academic boundaries and pushes back the limits!

Recorded in 1997, this jewel of Naïve Classique catalogue has been unavailable for several years. As the work is performed at Paris Opéra Comique in April 2014, Naïve is happy to reissue that title featuring prestigious actors and musicians.

'Histoire du Soldat' (The Soldier's Tale) came about in a difficult economic context: Diaghilev's Ballets were no longer touring, due to the war, and the Russian revolution had deprived Stravinsky of his remaining savings. As for Ramuz, some of whose works had been published in France, he was no longer receiving any royalties. Thus, the two friends wondered "Why not write something together which would entail only a limited number of instruments and two or three characters?"

And so Histoire du soldat come into being. Its musical forces were limited: an ensemble of seven instruments representing all the sections of the orchestra plus a highly developed percussion part. The first performance brought together friends and well-known artists, Ernest Ansermet conducted. Initially, their grand project included touring with a portable stage, like the itinerant players of the Middle Ages, but the devastating Spanish influenza epidemic and the armistice of November 1918 put an end to that idea.

Nonetheless, 'Histoire du soldat' would later be performed regularly, featuring famous names eg Jean Cocteau in the role of the reader (Geneva, 1934), celebrity couple Carole Bouquet and Gérard Depardieu in 1997...
