With this album Les Arts Florissants inaugurate a three-volume series devoted to the finest pages of Monteverdi s madrigals. Each volume will be linked to one of the cities that marked the composer s life: the present opus dedicated to Mantova (extracts from Books IV, V and VI) will be followed by two others devoted to Cremona (April 2015 - Books I, II and III) and Venice (February 2016 - Books VII and VIII). These publications all draw on the indepth work carried out by Paul Agnew at the head of an ensemble that has already shone in this repertoire on numerous European stages. The birth of a milestone series, in a beautifully designed boxset, featuring a new text commissioned by Les Arts Florissants by René de Ceccatty, the renowned French writer.

To play a repertoire for solo violin represents the ultimate challenge for a violinist. These works are actual tours de force, fields of experimentation that push back the limits of an instrument with a monodic basis.
According to the aesthetics of his time, Tartini forgoes the counterpoint while sublimating its melodic side. Polyphony, discreet but present, keeps with the exclusive function of support to the song. He focuses on the substance of music itself, its capacity to move, its power to evoke, as only the greatest geniuses have been able to do.
Adapting the bow technique is necessary in order to do the master of Padua's legendary control justice in that matter.
Tartini's music requires a real claim over his style, in order to properly grasp its substance. At the crossroads between baroque and classical, it cultivates a chiaroscuro prized by the painters of the time, thanks to the unending alternation of cantabile and suonabile parts.

Les Dissonances

The spirit of "Les Dissonances" is one of bringing together disparate worlds, there lies its specificity. The ensemble varies in size according to the requirements of the repertoire and plays without a conductor. It has absolute freedom in its choice of programmes. Such autonomy enables the musicians to fulfil their first objective, which is to go out and meet new audiences that have tended to be intimidated by "classical" music and to enable them to see the major works of the repertoire in a different light. Sharing music with audiences means highlighting contemporary composers along with those of the past. David Grimal and Les Dissonances invite audiences to take part in the adventure of music, and at the same time they give music back its universality.

"An incredible encounter. A moment suspended in time. I don't have the words to describe what happened on those cold days in December 2009. Singular emotions, beyond anything language can express. A waking dream... or the awakening of a dream? They entered the studio one by one. We got going very soon. The mood was joyful. On Lee's sweater, a cat swathed in a scarf. Paul, true to form, in sneakers and dark glasses. Gary, with an infinitely gentle smile. We took out the instruments. Paul fixed the cymbals on the drum kit. Silence. "Begin anywhere," John Cage would say. Leap into space: first sound, second sound, off we go. Producing a sound is a way of expressing one's existence in the world. The sound rends the silence. The silence is not the same afterwards. It is still heavy with sound, as if marked by its emotion. Sound as an identity, a genetic code. The sound of each instrument speaks of itself."

Here, from Pavane pour une infante défunte to Valses nobles et sentimentales, Vanessa Wagner presents works from Ravel's fruitful early-mature period.Keenly interested in the music of her time and dedicated to the great repertoires of both past and present, she brings out admirably the different dimensions that are to be found in Ravel's music. In seeking to understand the actuality of Ravel's works, she reveals their impact today.
The famous Pavane pour une infante défunte, an early work, takes us into the world of the dance that perfumes the musical world of Ravel. Gaspard de la nuitis in the French Romantic tradition, a triptych inspired by three of Aloysius Bertrand's prose-ballads:Ondine, the water nymph; Le Gibet(The Gallows), painting a gruesome picture of 'a bell tolling from the walls of a city, beneath the skyline, and the body of a hanged man, reddened by the setting sun'; Scarbo, depicting the night-time mischief of a mocking dwarf.We return to the dance with the bold Valses nobles et sentimentales, 'a series of waltzes in imitation of Schubert', written in 1911. Finally, Ma Mère l'Oye ('Mother Goose'), based on the tales of Charles Perrault and others, shows Ravel's affection for childhood days.
Vanessa Wagner brings out the modernity of these scores, their 'sudden movements of violence', their 'moments of ineffable sweetness'. She plays with rigour and intensity, and with a velvet touch.

And it is the poetry that Louis Schwizgebel decided to dedicate his first album.
In Gaspard de la nuit, Ravel transcribed three poems in the collection of Aloysius Bertrand, considered the founder of prose
poetry book. There reflects the tenderness of romance and sensuality.
The perpetual motion of Auf dem Wasser zu singen, melancholy and lyrical Ständchen, and the sinister swirl of Goethe Erlkönig: three Schubert songs transcribed by Liszt.
With Elis Louis Schwizgebel plunges us into the bruised innocence poems of Georg Trakl music by Holliger, to finish on the lighter theme loves Liszt: The Valley Obermann centerpiece of the first book of the year of pilgrimage.
Poems of Louis Schwizgebel is hard to literary resonances for love, marriage of music and poetry.

The talented young French clarinettist Pierre Génisson, a graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, has chosen to devote his first solo recording, on the Aparté label, to music that, as he puts it, is part of [his] DNA . To a programme of French music, therefore, with works by Claude Debussy, Ernest Chausson, Camille Saint-Saëns, Jean Françaix, Francis Poulenc and Jules Massenet: pieces of rare sensitivity and emotion, written for clarinet and piano, all of them composed, in close collaboration with professors of the Paris Conservatoire, for the exit examinations of that institution. The compositions span some 150 years. 'French composers, especially those close to the impressionist movement, knew how to magnify the timbres of these two instruments and bring out an amazing palette of sound and an outstandingly rich harmony. For me these works are three-dimensional, with light, colour and texture. That is what I wish to share through this recording.' Pierre Génisson, June 2014

Born in 1823 and dying in 1892, Édouard Lalo encompassed this period of Romanticism that witnessed the evolution of the romance de salon genre into the mélodie française or French art song. Injustice of posterity: only Fauré, Duparc and Debussy have acquired true fame in this genre, and yet, Lalo's compositions boast a profusion of ideas and perfect adaptability to aesthetic evolutions. The two scènes de salon for voice and piano (Le Novice and L'Adieu au désert) thus fall within a practice going back to the First Empire, whereas the seven romances (six of which are settings of texts by the excellent lyricist Béranger) stem from a mode that was at its height under the July Monarchy. As for the 23 mélodies written between 1855 and 1890 - some of them on texts by Victor Hugo - they perhaps owe their vocal inspiration to Lalo's marriage to the contralto Julie Bernier de Maligny. This would explain the particular care and quality brought to this corpus, not yet well enough known.

This disc is the second in the series devoted to French song and coproduced with the Palazzetto Bru Zane.

With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, the soundtrack of Gérard Corbiau's film "Farinelli" contributed considerably to the international renown of Les Talens Lyriques.

In 1994, in order to reinvent the voice of Carlo Broschi, known as Farinelli (1705-1782), a computer was used to mix the timbres of countertenor Derek Lee Ragin and coloratura soprano Ewa Mallas-Godlewska. On stage, rather than a falsettist, it was Ann Hallenberg, a mezzo with a fruity, ambiguous timbre, whom Christophe Rousset chose to portray the first rock star in the history of music. 'The magic of the film came about thanks to a gripping human story, reinforced by music that was equally gripping,' resumes Christophe Rousset, music director and conductor of the production. The idea for this programme, recorded in concert in Bergen, was to mix the emblematic arias of the film with other works from Farinelli's repertoire and relate the two periods of his career: the first, virtuosic and flamboyant, where the character accumulated as many ducats as vocalises; and a second, melancholic, introverted, and sensitive. The libretto relates the exciting life of the extremely famous castrato, crisscrossing Europe on the occasion of concert tours, giving performances acclaimed by royal families and an appreciative public alike.

Performed on the magnificent Rückers harpsichord at the Château of Versailles, Nicolas Bartholomée's recording ideally reproduces the full, fruity savour of this instrument that has miraculously been preserved.

Atsushi Sakai (bass viol after Nicolas Bertrand Paris 1705 - François Bodart à Chastre 1988), Marion Martineau (bass viole after Michel Collichon Paris 1693, Judith Kraft à Paris 2008) & Christophe Rousset (harpsichord after Ioannes Ruckers Anvers 1624, Marc Ducornet & Emmanuel Danset à Paris 1993)
Each appearance of Atsushi Sakai and Christophe Rousset leaves an unforgettable memory with those who have had the good fortune to hear them commune on stage. Long-standing partners, they now join together for the first time on disc for a composer they worship: the mysterious Antoine Forqueray. Born in 1672 in Paris, he was, with Marin Marais, one of the greatest gambists of all time. Famed for his virtuosic improvisations, he published none of his 300-odd pieces and died in 1745 in Mantes where he had moved in 1731, after having suffered serious financial setbacks, especially in the course of Law's bankruptcy. Aside from a few handwritten pieces copied in the collections of other composers, Forqueray's pieces have been lost.

The release of the 'Pièces de viole', to which the present recording is devoted, is thus the sole important testimony to his oeuvre.

Atsushi Sakai studied cello with Christophe Coin and is often to be found as a continuo player in ensembles such as Les Talens Lyriques and Le Concert d'Astrée, with which he has performed in a large number of concerts and recordings. He is co-founder of Sit Fast (consort of viols) and the Quatuor Cambini-Paris.

The mélodies of Benjamin Godard (1849-1895) are little known even by specialists of the genre. Yet Godard was prolific and most of his output came at a key moment in his evolution, around 1870. After the success of his dramatic symphony 'Le Tasse' in 1878, Godard was monopolised by the opera and composed several lyric works that overshadowed the 162 published songs, one of the most interesting parts of his catalogue.

The pieces selected here by Tassis Christoyannis and Jeff Cohen, most of them recorded for the first time, illustrate the composer's literary sensibility (Jean de La Fontaine, Théophile Gautier, Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire...) which he reveals in all their beauty.

Image Sonatas for Violin and Piano
Exactly half of Godard's chamber music output uses large-scale form: sonatas, trios and quartets. There are more pieces for
piano and violin (eight) but sonatas take pride of place in his early catalogue. Published by Flaxland, the first three sonatas
received very little coverage in the press, even though they sold well. The masterpiece, in the opinion of Godard's
contemporaries, was the fourth sonata, composed in 1872 at Taverny, moreover, his first work to be published abroad
(Berlin). It inevitably brings to mind its contemporary, the Op. 13 Sonata by Gabriel Fauré, which was given its first
performance the same year and which could only find publication in Germany, without any financial remuneration for the
composer. Godard managed somewhat better: after selling his first two sonatas for 50 francs apiece and the third for 100, he
sold the fourth for 400 francs.
At the time of his untimely death in 1895, he had remained loyal to what his contemporaries described as 'sentimental music',
a predilection which caused him to be consigned to oblivion by performers and history books alike. The performance of these
neglected works allows us to appreciate once again the richness of musical life in the second half of the 19th century, and the
position to which Godard can aspire.
Nicolas Dautricourt currently plays the magnificent Stradivarius, the 'Château Fombrauge' (Cremona 1713).

Image Complete Sonatas for Violin (3 CD)
The ten Sonatas for piano and violin constitute a monument of chamber music.

The first nine, written over a short period, between 1798 and 1803 (the tenth would come later, in 1812), clearly illustrate the composer's journey towards artistic maturity, from the influence of Mozart and Haydn in the first three sonatas towards a more complex, very modern language of which the 'Kreutzer' Sonata is a perfect example.

Pierre Fouchenneret, one of the foremost representatives of the young generation of violinists, a chamber player who has been singled out for numerous international prizes and distinctions, takes up the challenge of recording this major cycle in three concerts alongside pianist Romain Descharmes, 'a marvel of class and purity', as Christian Merlin so rightly described him. By their refreshing, profound and pertinent vision of these works, going in turn from fieriness to extreme poetry without ever losing sight of the necessary classicism of the style, they take us on a 'non-stop' journey to the peak, the heart of the Beethovenian universe, on the threshold of Romanticism. Magical!

Image Ariane consolée par Bacchus
Couperin came from a dynasty of musicians very much in the public eye, starting with the beginning of the reign of Louis XIV. This dynasty would remain important after the death of Francois Couperin, known as Couperin le Grand ('the Great'). Chosen personally by the Sun King for the Chapelle Royale at Versailles, he was quickly forgotten after his death, being eclipsed by Rameau. However history would consider him the most accomplished expression of French genius in the 18th century.

Here, the cantata 'Ariane consolée par Bacchus' is unveiled and served by a dream cast led by Christophe Rousset. This first release on the Aparté label is the forerunner of a boxed set to celebrate the occasion of Couperin's 250th birthday.

It was in 2015 that Julien Chauvin decided to bring back to life one of the most famous orchestras of the late 18th century, Le Concert de la Loge Olympique. Founded in 1783 and owing its lasting fame for having commissioned Joseph Haydn's 'Paris' Symphonies, it gave its first concerts under the high patronage of Marie-Antoinette, hence the subtitle of the fourth 'Paris' Symphony: 'La Reine'. Although the name has been slightly changed today, now called Le Concert de la Loge, this ensemble perpetuates the same tradition of excellence as its illustrious namesake. On the programme, of course, recording the cycle of these 'Paris' Symphonies and, to get the series off to a start, this famous 'Reine'.

Julien Chauvin combines not only instrumental works by various composers but also vocal arias). Thus the fabulous Sandrine Piau, a distinguished guest of this first recording, ideally portrays the gentle Sélène in the world premiere recording of an aria from Giuseppe Sarti's 'Didone abbandonata' (1762) and offers dazzling virtuosity in Diane's spectacular aria from Johann Christian Bach's serenade 'Endimione'. The listener will also (re)discover a little gem by Henri-Joseph Rigel, violist in Le Concert de la Loge Olympique: the Symphony Op. 12 no.4 (1774). With this first release, Julien Chauvin has created a stunningly beautiful disc, enhanced by the famous recording quality of the Aparté label and accompanied by a richly informed booklet.

amille Saint-Saëns, figure légendaire du romantisme, a composé plus de cent cinquante mélodies, reflets de son amour pour la poésie et la langue française.

Au sein de ce corpus de mélodies, quatre cycles se détachent et viennent parfaitement s’inscrire dans la période de l’âge d’or de la mélodie française (1870-1920). Le premier cycle, les Mélodies persanes (1870), met en musique les plus belles pages du poète parnassien Armand Renaud (Nuits persanes). La Cendre rouge (1914) témoigne d'une étroite collaboration avec Georges Docquois, les Cinq mélodies de Ronsard et Vieilles Chansons, composées l’année même de sa mort (1921) mettent en musique des poètes de la Renaissance : Ronsard, Belleau, de la Fresnaye, d'Orléans.
