Louis Lortie here gives us the third volume in his ongoing Chopin project. Throughout the series his guiding principle has been to emulate the recital practice of the great romantic pianists, who might play a short improvisation before a major work in order to set the audience in the right frame of mind. On this disc Lortie plays the four Impromptus and the Piano Sonata in B minor, introducing each with a Chopin Nocturne (typically of an improvisatory character) in the same or a related key.

Recording exclusively for Chandos, Lortie is recognised as one of the finest interpreters of Chopin today. He first recorded Chopin's Etudes for Chandos more than twenty years ago; the disc was named as one of the '50 great performances by superlative pianists' by BBC Music. Volume 1 of his current Chopin series also has received excellent reviews: the magazine Pianist wrote: 'He is a pianist of our time when it comes to speed, energy and an unfussy approach to Chopin. His way of playing is like a sharply cut steel sculpture, super elegant and with not one single smudge.' And in the words of International Piano: 'These are full-blooded and eloquent performances, an auspicious start to what looks likely to become one of the finest of Chopin surveys.'

In the era of the great romantic pianists, it used to be the fashion at piano recitals to offer an improvisation in the same key as that of the piece that was scheduled to follow, in order to get the audience ‘in the mood’. To compensate for this lost art, I have thought of always playing one of the nocturnes before a major piano composition by Chopin. It makes these nocturnes appear more like an improvisation, to serve as counterweight to the very dense content of the Ballades, Scherzos, and Sonatas. This practice transfers smoothly the logic of a piano recital to a CD and makes more sense by allowing the listener to enjoy the contents in one stretch’ writes Louis Lortie on his concept for the album.

Tout Jean-Louis Murat est là, dans ce disque qui a marqué la fin d'une longue traversée du désert (ou dans son cas des volcans d'Auvergne). Après trois albums rapidement tombés dans l'oubli et un semi-succès avec le single "Suicidez- vous, le peuple est mort", Murat a disparu pendant plusieurs années pour peaufiner un grand retour. Et c'est bien de ça qu'il s'agit : un classique, l'inauguration d'un nouveau style, celui d'un chanteur de charme, à la voix chaude, qui a assimilé l'exigence littéraire de Manset, les innovations techniques de la new wave, l'élégance distante d'un Bryan Ferry, la langueur bizarre d'un Robert Wyatt et quelques influences latines.

Asian Fields Variations marks the first time that clarinettist Louis Sclavis, violinist Dominique Pifarély and cellist Vincent Courtois, long-time colleagues, have recorded as a trio. Sclavis summoned the project into existence, but this is a democratic group of creative equals: "I proposed that we make a real collective, and each of us composes for the programme." All three are major figures in contemporary French creative music: this is a new group with a lot of history. Sclavis and Pifarély have played together in diverse contexts for 35 years, Sclavis and Courtois for 20 years, but they retain the capacity to surprise each other - and their listeners - as improvisers.

The title "Bach and Friends" is to be taken with a few tweezers: friends of whom? For although Böhm and probably Buxtehude were among the professors of Johann Sebastian Bach, Pachelbel was only a friend to his elder brother, Muffat lived all his life between Bavaria and Italy, and Fischer Bach as well as by the fact that he composed a collection of twenty Preludes and Fugues in twenty different tones, while Scheidemann died in 1663, which makes friendship with Bach - twenty-three years later - somewhat unlikely . But it is true that even the musicians represented here but who have not lived in the circle of the great Cantor or even the young Johann Sebastian have greatly influenced his work in one way or another.

Si tu aimes la plongée sous-marine tu vas dans le Pacifi que, si tu aimes grimper tu vas dans l'Himalaya, si tu aimes la musique tu vas à Nashville. » Voici donc Jean-Louis Murat expatrié à Nashville avec des musiciens d'exception, pour nous livrer un album très musical et varié où la poésie se mêle à de grandes chansons. Un disque, malgré son titre, peu ordinaire et résolument à part dans l'oeuvre du barde prolixe 1.5 ans après le précédent album, voici le moment idéal pour que Murat reprenne sa place de Grand de la chanson française… en termes de statut, certes mais également en termes de ventes!

Après 2 ans sans album, Jean-Louis Murat revient avec Grand Lièvre. Enregistré en quelques jours dans le sud de la France, le disque sonne comme s'il avait été capté dans les conditions du live. Dix titres aux musiques et textes magnifiques, des thèmes chers à l'auteur : la nature, la dérision de la condition humaine, le doute, l'amour, la solitude. Mais ici magnifiés, nimbés de mélodies tournoyantes, à la fois familières et surprenantes, agrémentées de bruissements, bruitages et dialogues mystérieux, et, nouveauté muratienne, de choeurs hypnotiques et lumineux. Du Murat au sommet de son art, intime et immédiat, secret et universel. A savourer avec de grandes oreilles.
