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.

A sense of discovery is a key theme in the third ECM recital of sisters Natascia and Raffaella Gazzana. Alongside a landscape of French music for violin and piano, drawing on a multiplicity of inspirations, the album includes a premiere recording of György Ligeti’s Duo, dedicated to Kúrtag. Duo Gazzana plays César Franck’s epic A major Sonata of 1886, and Maurice Ravel’s Sonate posthume, written in 1897, when its author was just 22, and the album concludes with Olivier Messiaen’s Thème et variations of 1932, a work which in some aspects prefigures the Quatuor pour la fin du temps. The duo’s performances of Ravel, Franck, Ligeti and Messiaen were recorded at Lugano’s Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI in March 2017 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Italian sisters Natascia and Raffaella Gazzana deliver a sensitively performed survey of French music of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, alongside a nod to modern Hungarian composer György Ligeti. They place Franck’s monumental Sonata in A Major at the heart of their program, its second movement Allegro blazing with passion, the final Allegretto beautifully restrained yet unleashed in the closing bars. Ravel’s Sonate Posthume is a fascinating document of a 22-year-old composer’s development, in thrall to early Impressionism, while Messiaen’s equally youthful “Thème et Variations,” played with sparkling clarity and poise, shows a composer ahead of his time. Ligeti’s direct musical language functions almost as a refreshing sorbet among the French riches.

Il Martirio di Sant'Orsola was probably written and sung in Rome between 1695 and 1700. The identification of the author of the libretto and the circumstances of composition remain unknown. The handwritten score and its separate parts, preserved in the Bibliothèque Municipale de Lyon and returned here, is indeed the only European version of the work. It was copied for the Academy of Fine Arts of Lyon to which it belonged, probably by amateurs bringing back from their travels many works, as evidenced by the importance of the Italian music in the funds Lyons. The orators of Scarlatti were played from 1718 to 1731 at the Academy.

En pleine nuit, au milieu de nulle part, un homme surgit et se fait renverser. A ses côtés, un sac rempli de billets. Voleur ? Trafiquant ? Peu importe. Deux millions d'euros, là, à portée de main. Aucun témoin. Que faire ? Appeler la police, ou disparaître avec l'argent ? Vigo et Sylvain, jeunes informaticiens au chômage, ne tardent pas à se décider. Le lendemain, une fillette aveugle est retrouvée morte dans un entrepôt. Peu après, une autre est enlevée. Diabétique. Ses heures sont comptées. Et si le magot n'était autre que la rançon destinée à sauver la vie d'une gamine ?

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.
