Poursuivant une réflexion menée avec Éloge de la marche, l'auteur souligne la façon dont le statut de la marche a évolué au cours des trente dernières années. Il montre ainsi que la marche s'impose aujourd'hui comme une activité de retrouvailles avec le corps et avec les autres. …

Genre: Classical | Label: Simax Classics | Catalog: PSC 1317

This double-disc set might seem to be an item for Baroque specialists only, but general listeners should sample it as well; it's quite lovely, and its history has a labor-of-love aspect that comes through in the playing by Norwegian harpsichordist Ketil Haugsand, a specialist in the music of Jean-Baptiste Forqueray. He built the harpsichord himself and finally managed to record these pieces after several false starts.

"Les trois nous proposent un jazz nerveux et punchy qui tire sur le rock mais qui sait nous ménager" Pascal Derathé, jazz-rhone-alpes.com du 31 octobre 2011. Depuis sa formation fin 2010, ce groupe s'est construit une identité électrique. Au travers d’une écriture précise et scénarisée, les compositions se mêlent aux improvisations sans transition, comme un tout se mouvant d’énergie et de liberté. Imprégnée de rock, de jazz et de pop, la musique de ce trio se veut déterminée, prends des risques, et manie suspense et happy-end dans un but expressionniste.

Today we take high fidelity sound quality for granted, but how did it start? When was the moment when compressed and scratchy sound gave way to natural, realistic sound that captured the whole picture of a performance?
Decca Sound ‘Mono Years’ seeks to answer that question and shows how, 70 years ago, amidst war-time privations, a small team at Decca made technological breakthroughs that brought hi-fi to the world. This latest cube explores Decca’s earliest high-fidelity history, and restores some restores critically acclaimed albums from ensembles such as the Trio di Trieste, Quintetto Chigiano and Griller Quartet which have not been available since their original LP release more than sixty years ago. An equally impressive array of soloists includes pianists Clifford Curzon, Julius Katchen, Friedrich Gulda and Moura Lypmany and violinists Ruggiero Ricci and Alfredo Campoli. Several generations of cellists are represented with recordings by Pierre Fournier, Maurice Gendron and Zara Nelsova.

Soie - Alessandro Baricco
French | 2001 | 114 Pages | ISBN: 2070419657 | EPUB | 100 KB

Vers 1860, pour sauver les élevages de vers à soie contaminés par une épidémie, Hervé Joncour entreprend quatre expéditions au Japon pour acheter des œufs sains. Entre les monts du Vivarais et le Japon, c'est le choc de deux mondes, une histoire d'amour et de guerre, une alchimie merveilleuse qui tisse le roman de fils impalpables. Des voyages longs et dangereux, des amours impossibles qui se poursuivent sans jamais avoir commencé, des personnages de désirs et de passions, le velours d'une voix, la sacralisation d'un tissu magnifique et sensuel, et la lenteur, la lenteur des saisons et du temps immuable.

"I recall as a young boy my father taking me to visit a family friend in Budapest, Elizabeth Láng, in order to show me a harpsichord. Both my father and I were intrigued by the instrument, especially the capability of coupling the keyboards. He later indicated in his preface to Mikrokosmos that ten of its piano pieces were suitable for playing on the harpsichord. I am grateful to Helga Váradi for bringing these pieces and others to life on this recording.”

This reverie offered by Brice Sailly in homage to François Couperin is presented in the guise of a trip to Arcadia, that utopian land which lies hidden in the heart of European geography. The selected harpsichord pieces, most of them evoking childhood and the birth of love, sit beside excerpts from the Concerts royaux that set the scene rather as Watteau might have done, leaving to the less well-known airs de cour the task of describing sentiments in words. Couperin discreetly whispers the most luminous of truths. Here all is benevolence, a smile on the lips, a light heart, and melancholy is gently dismissed in favour of consolation.
