'Les Six' (so named in 1920 by critic Henri Collet) hit the classical music scene with almost the same outrageous force with which the punk movement slammed into popular music in the 1970s and early '80s. It consisted of a group of six composers working in France: Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Georges Auric, Germaine Tailleferre and Louis Durey. Their music was largely a reaction against Impressionism and Wagnerism and incorporated the ideas of Satie and Cocteau with the popular styles of the time: French vaudeville, American jazz and café music.

This interpretation is a perfect match to Savall's equally beautiful Art of the Fugue. Here you find even more variety in the blend of instruments. I am not going to have only one version of this music and my first recommendation is Münchinger's more emotional recording on Decca. When it comes to colourful instrumentation, however, Savall is the winner, and the direction & playing needs no justification, it is simply wonderful, even if I doubt this folk music style reflects the spirit of the baroque era.

Only a few weeks after his 70th birthday the film director Werner Herzog met in Berlin with the composer and cellist Ernst Reijseger, the voice of Senegal, Mola Sylla, the Dutch jazz pianist Harmen Fraanje, the characteristic male voices of the Voches de Sardinna and the music producer Stefan Winter to perform »Eroberung des Nutzlosen« (»Conquest of the Useless«) with music and soundscapes. On two evenings in October 2012 Werner Herzog read (in German) excerpts from his text, which he has written during the adventurous production of his film »Fitzcarraldo«, that would become his most famous movie. Reijseger and his ensemble provided the musical accompaniment, and this double CD is a document of the occasion.

Farnace was apparently one of Vivaldi's favorite operas, because he mounted numerous productions in various cities, and wrote six versions of the score, more than of any of his other operas. The conventions of operatic vocal characterizations that came to be standard – higher voices in the sympathetic roles, and lower voices in villainous roles – had not yet been established, and Farnace features a baritone and contralto in the heroic roles, with a soprano as the villain. Soprano Adriana Fernández shines as the wicked Berenice, who is redeemed at the very last minute. She has a full, creamy voice that she deploys appealing agility and warmth. As Tamira, contralto Sara Mingardo sings with power, authority, and deep feeling. In the title role, baritone Furio Zanasi is appropriately heroic, with a rich, refined timbre and the expressive depth to create sympathy for the conflicted protagonist, but he doesn't always have the necessary strength at the bottom of his range. One of his arias, the lyrical and poignant "Gelido in ogni vena," is among the composer's loveliest creations.

An early example of ultra-realism, this movie contrasts the quiet, bucolic life in the outskirts of Paris with the harsh, gory conditions inside the nearby slaughterhouses.

Plus encore que les autres, Au pays des sables nous plonge dans la magie du désert, de ses dunes infinies et de ses levers et couchers de soleil rougeoyants. Déguisée en homme pour échapper à la discrimination et passer plus inaperçue, Isabelle Eberhardt porte un regard admiratif et attendri sur les mœurs arabes et sur l’Islam, religion qu’elle a adoptée. Elle critique ouvertement l’attitude des colons français, qui se croient supérieurs aux Arabes et se montrent méprisants envers ce peuple colonisé. Un seul récit quitte l’Afrique pour nous emmener en Sardaigne, où elle retrouve de nombreux traits arabes dans les gens et les paysages qu’elle côtoie. Une écriture prenante et toujours aussi poétique. …

Comment un individu verse-t-il dans l'extrémisme ? La plupart de nos contemporains ne manquent pas d'attribuer les dérives radicales dont l'actualité regorge à la folie ou à la misère sociale, affective et intellectuelle dans laquelle survivent des milliers d'hommes. La réalité, comme nous le rappelle très justement ce riche et passionnant ouvrage, est pourtant tout autre …

Le biopouvoir que Michel Foucault s'est si puissamment attaché à décrire n'est plus ce qui trame notre époque : l'enjeu est désormais le psychopouvoir, où il s'agit moins d' "utiliser la population" pour la production que de la constituer en marchés pour la consommation. …
