La commistione, anzi la collaborazione tra musica classica e jazz è sempre stata al centro del lavoro di Michel Godard e aveva già trovato momenti di realizzazione esemplare - ad esempio, nello splendido Castel del Monte, uscito per la Enja nel 2000. Ecco, con questo Archangelica, un altro capitolo della ricerca godardiana, stavolta scaturente da una curiosa combinazione di elementi: l’invito a collaborare con un ensemble barocco, sulla base delle Leçons des ténèbres di Marc-Antoine Charpentier, in occasione di uno spettacolo tratto da un romanzo fantastico di Nancy Huston. Come racconta suggestivamente la stessa Huston nel libretto del CD, la collaborazione, inizialmente difficile e distante, è rapidamente cresciuta fino a veder l’ensemble suonare jazz e i jazzisti suonare barocco. Il disco ne è la logica conseguenza.

Jazz

Two widely respected Brazilian musicians, originally meeting and performing together on a 2014 tour, saxophonist Sergio Galvao & guitarist Lupa Santiago developed a quick and exciting rapport, vowing to work more together. Soon after a second tour, Galvao relocated to France where he formed a trio with two dynamic French musicians, bassist Clement Landais and drummer Franck Enouf, making plans to record as a trio in the spring of 2017. By coincidence, Lupa was touring Europe during the same period and the idea to join the trio's recording was born. Meeting in the studio in Normandy on the first day of recording, they brought their compositions and after many jokes concerning soccer, the name for the recording and band came very easily: 2x2. The music presented is fully jazz, but infused with rich experiences and deep influence from their own cultures and travels.

It was in 1881 that a young man of twenty-six entered the class of Cesar Franck at the Paris Conservatoire. He had had a not too congenial teacher in Massenet. Franck, then fifty-nine and known as the organist at the Church of Sainte-Clotilde, was attracting young pupils to his side (d’Indy, Duparc, Ropartz, Pierne). His own attempts at composition were as yet almost unknown. Yet Franck at once inspired Ernest Chausson with hopes of becoming a composer.

Vadim Repin suggests in the booklet’s notes that he and Nikolai Lugansky chose a program for their first studio recording together that mimics a recital in this case, that would be a sonata recital. This sonata the introductory passage, Lento doloroso , of Edvard Grieg’s Second Sonata displays in the duo’s performance a haunting poignancy that their energetic reading of the movement proper hardly dispels.

Classical, Chamber

Two great interpreters, poets and lovers of the French repertory and chamber music join forces here: the violinist Tedi Papavrami and the pianist Nelson Goerner. They have chosen to devote this programme to the two violin sonatas of Gabriel Fauré and the Sonata of César Franck. It was in 1875 that Fauré composed his First Sonata for violin and piano, characterised by its originality and its formal design, which marked the start of a new era for French chamber music.
