This stunning and generous collection belongs right at the top of the heap in its respective repertoire. The Debussy is still a comparative rarity in concert if not on disc, a remarkable fact given that it's wholly gorgeous from first note to last. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's excellence as a Debussy pianist already has been acknowledged by just about everyone who has heard him, and needs no further advertisement here. The performance is outstanding, sensitive to every nuance, but also very French in its clear-eyed sensibility and understanding that focused rhythm and supple tempos prevent the music from turning excessively sentimental or blandly pretty. And in Tortelier, Bavouzet has a conductor who seconds him every step of the way. A similar sensibility informs these swift, razor-sharp, and utterly thrilling accounts of the two Ravel concertos. That for the left hand seldom has sounded so exciting, or in its jazzy central march section, so sinister. Listen to the bite that both soloist and orchestra bring to that descending scale theme, and notice the way Bavouzet shapes his cadenza so as to preserve the illusion of multiple parts played by multiple hands–all without slowing down at the tough passages. It's really an amazing performance by any standard. Even the dark opening, often merely murky on other recordings, has shape and urgency, the buildup to the initial entry of the piano creating incredible tension.
Jean-Claude Malgoire, Deutsche Handel Solisten - Antonio Salieri: Tarare (2005)

Jean-Claude Malgoire, Deutsche Händel Solisten - Antonio Salieri: Tarare (2005)
NTSC 4:3 (720x420) | Francais (LinearPCM, 2 ch) | 175 min | 7.55 Gb (DVD9)
Classical | Label: Arthaus Musik | Sub: Francais, Deutsch, English, Espanol, Italiano, Japanese | Recorded: 1988

The work is an extraordinary curiosity; a child of the heady days just before the French Revolution, Tarare is the famous French writer's only opera and one of the Italian composer's rare French scores. First and most strikingly a work of social and political commentary, Tarare is also an entertaining work of theatre. Salieri's music supports these aims admirably and offers a few memorable moments of its own. As an opera form, Tarare defies easy categorization; it may be best described as a comedic satire dressed in the clothes of a sprawling 5 act lyric tragedy, complete with Prologue and a grand divertissement with dance.

Jean-Pierre Changeux, Alain Connes, "Matière à pensée"
Odile Jacob | 2008 | ISBN: 2738100732/2738119239 | French | EPUB | 267 pages | 2.1 MB

Les mathématiques et la biologie se trouvent aux deux extrémités du spectre de la science. D'un côté la rigueur logique, débarrassée de toute contingence matérielle, de l'autre une science d'observation, profondément tributaire de savoir-faire techniques et de concepts moraux. Ce livre d'entretiens tente de créer une passerelle entre ces disciplines que tout éloigne. Les deux auteurs, tous deux académiciens et professeurs au Collège de France, s'interrogent sur la nature de la pensée, l'existence des objets mathématiques ou le rapport entre le cerveau et les machines. …

Combining works by Debussy and Poulenc on an album may, to some, seem a bit ironic seeing as at one point, the latter railed against the music of the former. Poulenc was later to change his tune, though, and eventually became one of Debussy's most ardent admirers. The two were greatly responsible for a new direction in French music, which, ironically, required both of them to look to composers of the past for inspiration.
