L'Armonia Sonora

Ensemble "L'Armonia Sonora" have attempted in the programme presented on this CD, a reconstruction of the original versions of these compositions of which only copies or arrangements have survived. The result is a beautifully crafted recording fulfilling all the expectations we have come to expect from this ensemble and Ramee.

Motets, Canzonas And Sonatas By Venetian Masters such as Filago, Riccio, Merulo, Marini, Bassano, Picchi

Instrumenta Musica
Ercole Nisini - trombone & direction

A beautiful CD of Motets, Canzonas and Sonatas by Venetian Masters from the time of Monteverdi. These composers have for the most part been overshadowed by their more famous and illustrious colleague but this release allows us to hear why, during this period in history, Venice was regarded as the centre of musical and artistic excellence.

Ludus Modalis

Born in Noyon, Picardie c.1537, we know very little about Paschal de l'Estocrat, though we do know that he had sympathy for the ideas of the reformation, which contributed to his settling in the Calvinist territory of Switzerland. The musical language of L'Estocart is influenced, as with all the French composers of his generation, by that of Lassus. A whole range of compositional techniques are employed to serve the goal of expression, rhythmic variety, the sense of movement and the wide use of rhetoric figures. The greatest originality lies in the boldness of the harmonic language, which produces clashes that cannot be missed by the attentive listener. These are world premiere recordings.

Image Clavier-Übung 3
Clavier-Übung III is considered Johann Sebastian Bach's most important and most complete organ work, containing some of his pieces for the instrument that are the most complex musically and the most demanding technically. Formally, it takes its inspiration from the religious music of the masters of the stile antico. But, at the same time, Bach was an innovator and here incorporated modern Baroque musical forms, such as the chorale à la française and the gallant style. The aim of the collection was manifold: an ideal organ programme; a practical translation of Lutheran doctrine in musical terms for devotional use at church or in the home; a collection of organ music in all possible styles and idioms, old and modern; and a didactic work presenting examples of all possible forms of contrapuntal composition, going well beyond earlier treatises of musical theory. Léon Berben gives us his interpretation, a new and fresh view of this milestone in organ music, using the exceptional sound colours of an organ contemporary with Bach and largely preserved in its original state: the Christoph Treutmann organ in Grauhof (Germany).

Image Division-Musick
The Art Of Diminution In England In The 17th Century

Musicke & Mirth

"Division-Musick" is a term used by Christopher Simpson during the 17th century to describe a typically English improvisatory style of diminution. Musicians generally used short bass melodies called grounds as the basis for intricate and virtuoso diminutions, beginning with simple and slow melodies over a bass melody, and ending with very fast and virtuosic diminutions after a varying number of repetitions of the melody.

Both singers and instrumentalists practiced this art of diminution, but the preferred instrument for divisions was the so-called "division viol".

This CD aims to give some audible insight into English virtuosity in the Baroque era.

Image Nonets
Osmosis / Kate Clark (flute, direction)

In this recording Ramée present two pieces of early romantic music for wind ensemble. Spohr's nonet of 1813 is the first written for this particular combination of instruments and makes conscious use of the distinctive qualities and idiosyncrasies of each.

Onslow's nonet (recorded for the first time on historical instruments) is startling from the very first bar! The force and volume of his opening declamation, the virtuosity of the violin's first flourishes, and the enormous range in each of the parts give the piece a distinctly 'modern' feel. By comparison with Spohr's nonet this piece is the child of a different Zeitgeist.

Spanish Violin Music from the time of Ferdinand VI

Blai Justo - violin
Elisa Joglar - cello

Spanish composers wrote much for the violin in the eighteenth century and many leading families owned valuable instruments. Ledesma played the violin and viola and played in the Spanish Chapel Royal.

These sonatas were rediscovered in 1986.

Marie-Celine Labbe, transverse flute
Marion Treupel-Franck, transverse flute

For this second recording devoted to French Baroque music for two solo transverse flutes, Marie-Céline Labbé and Marion Treupel-Franck perform the six suites by Pierre Danican Philidor (1681-1731), pieces taken from the three collections published by the composer in Paris in 1717 and 1718. Written in a highly original style in which one senses the spirit of freedom blowing over Versailles and France during the regency of the Duke d'Orléans, these short suites, in addition to the principal dances in vogue at the court of Versailles in the early 18th century, each comprise a fugue.

A few brunettes by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair (1667-1737) round out the programme. The brunette, a little rustic song with an evocative title, was a musical genre quite popular in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The selection proposed here will enable the listener to discover another facet of the work of Montéclair, the composer who was the object of the two flautists' first recording.

Image Goldberg Variations
Pascal Dubreuil, harpsichord

The Goldberg Variations followed the first three parts of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Clavier-Übung. The title page presents the work as a ‘Keyboard exercise consisting of an Aria with diverse variations for harpsichord with two manuals...’ Forkel, in his biography of the composer, relates that these variations were composed at the request of the Count von Keyserlingk so that his harpsichordist, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, might play a few of them during the insomnias that often disturbed the Count’s nights. But no concrete element has come down to us to verify Forkel’s remarks. The exceptional virtuosity required by this work also leads one to think that it was perhaps a sort of response to Domenico Scarlatti’s publication of 30 of his Essercizi in 1738, which also exploit, but to a lesser degree, aspects of keyboard technique not yet in common use at the time. These technical aspects as well as the sublime eloquence, the genius of the counterpoint and the inexhaustible variety of the variations combine to make this one of the summits of the genre.

With his captivating interpretation, Pascal Dubreuil completes the release of the four parts of the Clavier-Übung for Ramée (CÜ1: RAM0804, CÜ2: RAM1002, CÜ3: RAM1305).

Image Brockes-Passion
Zsuzsi Tóth (soprano), Jan Van Elsacker (tenor) & Peter Kooij (bass)
Les Muffatti & Vox Luminis, Peter Van Heyghen

The Brockes-Passion can be considered the archetype of the German Passion oratorio. As such, it served as a model and source of inspiration for famous later masterpieces, enjoying uninterrupted popularity throughout the 18th century when no less than 11 composers, including Handel and Telemann, set it to music.

The superb version by Reinhard Keiser (1674-1739) is not only the first but also adheres most closely to the great rhetorical power and rich changes of affects of the poet's text. In German literary history, Barthold Heinrich Brockes (1680-1747) is known above all for his innovative role during the second quarter of the 18th century. In 1712, the year of the Brockes-Passion's first performance, Keiser, fellow citizen of Brockes in Hamburg, was already recognized as the most important opera composer in Germany - and, in some opinions, even in Europe. When the genius of these two great artists combined in a single work, the result could only be spectacular.

The tricentennial of its first performance justified a belated but nonetheless dithyrambic tribute, here presented by the singers of the Vox Luminis ensemble and the instrumentalists of Les Muffatti. Vox Luminis won the Gramophone 2012 Recording of the Year Award for their album of the Schütz Musicalische Exequien (Ricercar RIC311).

Ensemble Mediolanum

This is the first recording of a recently rediscovered manuscript of twelve sonatas for recorder and basso continuo by the English composer Robert Valentine. Born in Leicester between 1671 and 1674, he lived in Rome from 1701, until his death in 1747. In Italy Valentine was known by the name of "Roberto Valentini". Alongside his instrumental performing, Valentine taught the recorder, and possibly also the transverse flute, but he dedicated himself chiefly to instrumental composition, leaving behind a large body of work. Corelli clearly served as the model for Valentine's first collections and his success in amateur circles is due principally to his capacity for combining writing that, while melodic, pleasing and brilliant, remains comfortably playable.

Schola Stralsundensis
Maurice van Lieshout - direction


The manuscript Stralsund MS 229, which dates from 1585, is a collection of sacred motets held in the Stadtarchiv of Stralsund, a German Hanseatic town on the Baltic. There were probably six part-books originally, but only four have survived. The manuscript contains 105 works, composed mainly for five or six voices. It spans several generations of composers, from the late fifteenth to the end of the sixteenth century; it therefore includes works composed before and after the Reformation. The variety of styles is impressive, ranging from early Franco-Flemish polyphony to Italian madrigals and works from central Germany.

In order to bring back to life the many famous or less well-known gems of the manuscript, the founder of Schola Stralsundensis, Antonie Schlegel, and its musical director, Maurice van Lieshout, have tirelessly researched and compared sixteenth-century manuscript and printed scores all over Europe.

The programme recorded here contains a wide selection of works from the manuscript. The title Petitiones cordis comes from Eucharius Hoffmann's motet setting of Psalm 37: In Domino spera et fac bonum, delectare in Domino, et dabit tibi petitiones cordis tui (Put thou thy trust in the Lord, and be doing good. Delight thou in the Lord: and he shall give thee thy heart's desire). The repertoire has been recorded at its historical place, the church of Saint-Nicolas in Stralsund, where Hoffmann was Kantor.

La Gioia Armonica

Today almost entirely forgotten, Reutter has been the most successful composer of opera in Vienna during the 1730s, and the single and most influential composer of church music in Vienna for three decades, enjoying the estimation of both Charles VI and Maria Theresia. The son of a court organist and music director at St. Stephen's Cathedral, Reutter studied with Antonio Caldara and, having returned from a period of study in Italy, was nominated imperial court composer in Vienna in 1730. He became first director of music at St. Stephen's im 1738, second Hofkapellmeister in 1747 and first Hofkapellmeister in 1769. His influential position in the musical life of Vienna led to conflicts with Durazzo and Gluck which escalated in 1761. Reutter is one of the few composers who composed for the Pantaleon (salterio). As Caldara had done before him, Reutter used the pantaleon as an obbligato instrument in several arias of his operas and oratorios. Our programme features four arias for obligato salterio. With this CD La Gioia Armonica will continue the endeavours of its first CD for RAMÉE, dedicated to original compositions for the pantaleon by Antonio Caldara (RAM0405).

Image Dialogues
Mieneke van der Velden, viola da gamba
Wieland Kuijken, viola da gamba
Fred Jacobs, French theorbo

A noteworthy fact: Marais, in his five books of Pièces de viole, published only two suites for two viols and continuo. Aside from the two suites for three viols (Book IV), all the other pieces are intended for the solo instrument with accompaniment of harpsichord, theorbo or a second viol in different combinations.

These two particular suites are both found in Book I (1686). The addition of a second solo viol reinforces the character of the various parts: especially in the slow sections, Marais ideally emphasizes the sound of the two viols with long sostenuto lines and poignant dissonances. The Tombeau pour Mr. Meliton constitutes the absolute height of this.

After Mieneke van der Velden's recordings Hommages and Images, Dialogues completes the picture of the imposing sound world of Marin Marais's music, magnified by the collaboration with the master Wieland Kuijken.

Pascal Dubreuil (harpsichord)

This well-known set of Suite is rarely gone about by most harpsichordist because of it's distrnctive virtuosity. Its popular title refers to only one manuscript - the one of Johann Christian Bach, who noted "fait pour les Anglois" on it. After all it's maybe a homage or musical reply on the 1713 publication of Francois Couperin's Premier Livre de Pieces de Clavecin.

Pascal Dubreuil, after his acclaimed recordings of the first and second parts of the Clavierubung (RAM0804 & 1001) offers us with his interpretation of these Suites an impressive reading of higheszt artistry.

La Morra

In 1512, Giovanni di Lorenzo di Piero de' Medici (1475-1521) was the eldest surviving male member of the senior line of the celebrated Medici family of Florence, the eldest surviving son of the mythic Lorenzo "il Magnifico." Giovanni had inherited his family's refined interest in and zealous support of the arts: literature; painting, sculpture, and architecture; and music. But of all of these, Giovanni - perhaps due in part to his poor eyesight - favored music, for which his passion was legendary among contemporaries. The musical life of Leo's court was unimaginably rich and vibrant, as innumerable eyewitness accounts confirm.

Our CD aims to bring that world acoustically to life, to revive the soundscape of the Leonine court and illustrate the range of practices typifying Leo's own musical experiences. It is intended as a tribute to a rare and extraordinary patron of music (himself a composer and musician), who occupied that singular position at the very summit of the universal ecclesiastical hierarchy.

Image Polonica
In addition to the works attributed to the lutenists active at the Royal Polish court in the late sixteenth century, there is a substantial repertoire of compositions identified as Polish dances or Polish songs which have been preserved in numerous sources of late Renaissance lute music. Characterized by an irresistible melodic charm and a straightforward harmonic and rhythmical texture, such musical polonica spread across Europe, achieving what might have been the widest distribution of musical Polishness before Chopin. Four hundred years later, Polish lutenist Michal Gondko sets out to trace polonica in lute tablatures from around 1600, and presents a selection of forty compositions, many of which have not been previously recorded.

Les Muffatti / Peter Van Heyghen

Few French musicians of the 18th century were as appreciated, admired and hailed during their lifetime as was the virtuoso violinist from Lyons Jean-Marie Leclair. In 1753, he was described in Mercure de France as 'the most famous artist that France has had for purely instrumental music'. Three years after his tragic death - he was murdered in 1764 by a jealous nephew -, Charles Henry de Blainville remembered him as 'the Corelli of France', where he was thus celebrated up until the early 19th century. In 1754, Friedrich Wilhelm Marpurg placed Leclair on the level of Telemann, Handel and members of the Bach family in terms of harmony and counterpoint; and for Francesco Galeazzi, he was, in 1790, the sole Frenchman on the list of principal masters of the violin in 18th century Europe, alongside such major names as Corelli, Vivaldi, Somis, Locatelli, Geminiani, Tartini and Stamitz.

The Opus 7 concertos can thus be considered the crowning achievement and a sublime summary of Leclair's talents as a virtuoso and composer, one of the greatest of his era. Fireworks of wit and virtuosity, with the brilliant violinist Luis Otavio Santos (Diapason d'Or for his album of Leclair Sonatas released by Ramée) and Les Muffatti (5th album for Ramée), under the magic wand of Peter Van Heyghen.

Les Muffatti / Peter van Heyghen

When one looks at the biographies of famous prima donnas, the suspicion sometimes arises that opera is not really an art form but a way of life. At any rate, for many of its protagonists, the theatrics, the scheming and the scandal mongering of the stage appear to flow seamlessly into real life. And the situation in the eighteenth century was no different from today. Among the most famous and also the most notorious stars of European opera houses was the Italian diva Francesca Cuzzoni, whose extravagance must have been as phenomenal as her singing talent. Had there already been a gutter press in her time, La Cuzzoni would certainly have been one of the most reliable suppliers of headlines. But, even without tabloids, news of La Cuzzoni's affairs got around quickly, and indeed seem to have played no small part in the fascination she exercised over her audience. Her early success, her fairytale fame and eventually her dramatic fall caught the imagination of the musical world. This CD features some of the most beautiful and breathtaking arias, composed for the diva by Handel.

Image Kingdom of Heaven
Heinrich Laufenberg lived and worked between c.1390 and 1460 in the Swiss canton of Argovia, southernGermany and Alsace. He was the author of a vast body of works, comprising spiritual hymns, didactic epics and religious prose. A manuscript housed in the Strasbourg Library, which took up the major part of his work, was completely destroyed in a fire in 1870. Happily, a copy had been made of it, so part of his oeuvre was able to be passed on to posterity. The surviving songs of Heinrich Laufenberg are of great beauty, in terms of both music and content: in one of them, he praises Mary in a thoroughly poetic way; in a lullaby, he asks Jesus protection for the sleeping infant; in yet another, he describes for us the kingdom of heaven in detail and in all its richness.This programme, entitled Royaume des cieux, offers us the joy of hearing songs that had remained silent since the 15th century. Between Laufenbergs lyrical and narrative songs are inserted instrumental pieces from the period. Thus, in an enthusiastic, authentic way, the ensemble Dragma gives life to the music of the late Middle Ages, in a glittering kaleidoscope.Three highly-regarded musicians are at the heart of Ensemble Dragma: Agnieszka Budziska-Bennett, JaneAchtman and Marc Lewon. Their flexible configuration (two voices, vielle, lute, and harp) allows them to bringthe repertoire of the high and late Middle Ages to life, in all its colour and variety, for contemporary audiences.Established in 2012, the group soon embarked on a tour of Germany, France and Switzerland with a programme entitled The Kingdom of Heaven. This is Ensemble Dragmas first CD.

Johann Christoph Pepusch's Venus and Adonis premiered at London's Theatre Royal in 1715. Inspired by the operas of composers like Giovanni Battista Bononcini and Alessandro Scarlatti, it was the most substantial effort of the period to "reconcile Musick to the English Tongue." + These works bristle with Italian virtuosity and dynamism and unlike most dramatic music of the time, Venus and Adonis makes ample use of dramatic recitative. A clar model for Handel's later works.
