When, at the end of the 18th century in Germany, they talked of the “great Bach”, it was usually not Johann Sebastian they had in mind, who was admired at the time by just a few connoisseurs, but his second son, Carl Philipp Emanuel in whose powerful talent Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven delighted and whose influence extended even to the early romantics: Weber, Hoffmann, Mendelssohn.

Babar et le Pere Noel - Natalie Dessay, Shani Diluka (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: Natalie Dessay, Shani Diluka
Title: Babar et le Père Noël
Genre: Classical, Children's Music
Label: © La Dolce Volta
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:52:23
Recorded: 8 au 10 août 2015 à Ivry-sur-Seine (Studio 4’33’’)

Natalie Dessay s’empare d’un classique de la littérature jeunesse: Babar et le Père Noël, véritable trésor national écrit et illustré par Jean de Brunhoff, avec toute la délicatesse et le piquant que l’on connaît au père de l’éléphant le plus apprécié – avec Dumbo – des têtes blondes
La soprano colorature se glisse dans les mots de Jean de Brunhoff avec un plaisir communicatif. Grimant sa voix de mille façons. Épousant au plus près les intonations juvéniles de Zéphir, les poses altières de Babar ou l’insouciance d’une assemblée de rongeurs aussi farfelue que remuante…
Notre pétillante comédienne en herbe s’est entourée de la pianiste Shani Diluka. Interprète sensible et poétique, cette dernière illustre en musique le récit savoureux de Dessay, par de brèves pièces puisées pour la plupart dans l’essence du répertoire français : Satie, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Bizet et, bien sûr, Poulenc qui mit en musique l’histoire de Babar dès 1940. Un délicieux retour en enfance, en même temps qu’une fine initiation à la musique pour piano, porté par deux artistes attachantes et passionnées.

Astor Piazzolla - Cierra tus ojos - Daniel Mille (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88.2kHz

Сomposer: Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992)
Artist: Daniel Mille
Title: Astor Piazzolla - Cierra tus ojos
Genre: Classical, World, Latin, Jazz
Label: © Après la pluie/Sony Music Entertainment France
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:55:30
Recorded: 2014

Avec "Cierra tus ojos", Daniel Mille présente un projet à la lisière du Jazz, de la world et du classique. Très loin des clichés du tango, Daniel Mille, son génial arrangeur-réalisateur Samuel Strouk, et ses musiciens nous offrent un traitement unique de l’univers de Piazzolla, tout en intimité, pour accordéon, 3 violoncelles et contrebasse. Mille, dans le costume du maestro, est à la fois si Mille, et si Piazzolla. Si magistral et si modeste. Il manie les éléments mêmes légués par Piazzolla : une diversification tentaculaire des chemins des possibles, l’invention d’un territoire. Sculptant silences et voix subliminales. Le mot est galvaudé mais il faut l’oser ici… Un disque sublime!

Since the early twentieth century there has been a radical renewal of pedigreed chamber genres. We need only think of the late sonatas of Debussy, or of the string quartets of Bartók; or, to enter a high modernist space later in the century, of the duos and quartets of Elliott Carter; or, to move into a less prescriptive space that some like to label postmodern, of Ståle Kleiberg in our own time. In the solo and chamber works recorded here, Kleiberg recaptures something of the ethos of the private sphere. The solo works have an inward character, occluding display, while the chamber works restore the thematic sharing and instrumental characterization of the classical era, but in both cases of an informal kind, shy of system, wary of rhetoric.

In the early romantic period, struggling with the aftermath of absolutism's collapse, people had to find new solutions in all realms of communal life. Because old certainties vanished, another vision of society emerged, shaped by artists: poets, painters and musicians. They viewed a higher world order in nature, to be felt by the individual, and expressed in a synthesis of all arts. Especially in music, these ideas were embodied with a new freedom of stylistic decisions. The sonatas for natural horn and fortepiano by Franz Danzi, Ferdinand Ries und Nikolaus von Krufft are virtuosic compositions with stunning dialogues between the horn and piano parts. They explore the full range of timbres, flamboyantly surpassing classical structures in search of new modes of expression. The verve and profusion of colors in the performance of Steinar Granmo Nilsen and Kristin Fossheim incorporate the early romantic idea that music was the most royal of all arts.
