Unusually for Archiv Produktion, no details are given of the actual instruments used in this recording, but it is fairly obvious that (with the possible exception of the gambas) they are modern; and similarly, the style of articulation and the amount of string vibrato employed are probably not 'authentic'. For which I shed not a single tear.

"…Stefan Irmer has clearly studied and truly learned this music. So often on a disc of rarely performed music one gets the feeling that the pianist is sight-reading the notes in order to make a recording of previously unrecorded music. Not so here. Irmer performs with wonderful clarity, variety of tone, panache, and commitment. He truly sells the music.
Natural recorded sound, capturing very well the 1901 Steinway used for the recording, rounds out a delightful disc." ~Fanfare

With The All-Baroque Box we realize one of our fondest dreams: harnessing the deep catalogue of Archiv Produktion (supplemented on occasion by Decca L oiseau lyre recordings) to create a comprehensive collection of great music from Monteverdi to Bach. The music ranges from huge Baroque (Missa Salisburgensis, Venetian polychoral, Charpentier Te Deum) to intimate Baroque (the Goldberg Variations, Bach cello suites, solo cantatas) overwhelming in its impact and emotional content.

The complete piano works of French perfectionist composer Paul Dukas mirror two very different masterpieces, one French- inspired (Variations) and the other of Germanic inspiration (Sonata). The Sonata is distinguished by its structure, grandeur and magnificence of tone. A disciple of Gabriel Tacchino, Jean-Claude Pennetier and Gyorgy Sebok, Olivier Chauzu (b. 1963) was trained in the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris at the end of the 1980s. He tours France and the world playing as a soloist and in chamber music.

Ce livre écrit à quatre mains par Luis Sepulveda et Carlo Petrini est né d'une conversation entre deux hommes venus d'horizons et de pays différents. L'écrivain et le gastronome défenseur du Slow Food et du "manger local" se sont retrouvés pour un échange autour de l'idée de bonheur et de l'influence des politiques adoptées dans certains pays sur le plaisir personnel et collectif. Leurs expériences respectives leur ont appris que la vie est courte, bonne, et dépend d'un droit fondamental …

When he published his two Apothéoses in memory of two great masters of music in 1724-25, François Couperin was asserting his desire to promote a meeting of the French and Italian styles – from a very Gallic point of view, naturally. The idea was to convince the French Muses that henceforth one could say sonade and cantade in their language – a strategy already pursued in the much earlier La Sultane and La Superbe. But, far from blindly imitating his idols, Couperin takes inspiration from their styles and adapts them to his own brio. The result is a delight for all to share with the musicians of Gli Incogniti and Amandine Beyer, whose first harmonia mundi recording this is.

Les Nations is a collection of chamber works published by François Couperin in 1726. Issued in four separate books, it was intended “for the use of music academies and concerts,” according to its title heading. It contains four extended works that feature movements in the French or the Italian manner, resulting in hybrid pieces that encompass both of the then sharply opposed styles.

Alessandro Baricco - Soie

"Soie" by Alessandro Baricco, read by Jacques Bonnaffé , Marie-Jeanne Séréro
Audio/Fiction | Gallimard | 2005 | ISBN: 0050639641 | French | MP3@192kbps | 2 CDs | 02:04:33 | 172 MB

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.
En finesse et en délicatesse, Jacques Bonnaffé incarne seul les différerents personnages de Soie, et nous transporte au pays du Soleil-Levant. Sa voix chaude et toute en nuances nous accompagne au cours de cette fugue poétique, de cette quête de soi et de cette magnifique histoire d'amour. Un pur moment de grâce!

François Couperin - Les Nations - Kuijken Ensemble
Sonades et suites de Simphonies en trio(1726)
Baroque | Ape + cue | no log | Covers | 2 CD | 526 MB | RS
ACCENT ACC 9285/86 D | 1999

The Kuijken Ensemble features Barthold Kuijken & Marc Hantaï on transverse flute, Sigiswald Kuijken & François Fernandez on violin, Wieland Kuijken on viola da gamba and Robert Kohnen on harpsichord. This re-issue of Couperin’s Les Nations “Sonades et suites de Simphonies en trio”- composed in 1726, received superb reviews on its original release. Unquestionably the three Kuijken brothers stand for top quality in historical performance, and this recording confirms such a statement. Hardly will you be able to hear this sophisticated music played so subtly, so sensitively.
