"WHAT?!" was the first stunned reaction of the musicians after reading through Geminiani's Concertos Op.7. A composition that is invariably controversial, at once surprising and familiar. Then it was a new discovery with each concerto, with different textures and styles from one movement to the other. This music led us along unexpected paths from the church to the theatre, from Italy to France, from the seventeenth century to the eighteenth.

It is the French Romantic repertory composed between 1800 and 1900 that the tenor has chosen for his first recital disc.

When he entered the entourage of Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, in 1690, Lulier already had a decade of compositional activity behind him in the genres of oratorio, opera and above all the chamber cantata. Originally consisting of a succession of strophic arias, the cantata gradually established itself as a poetic and musical genre characterized by alternating recitatives and arias.

"As in the case of Mozart on our first recording, we wanted to present two different atmospheres with two quartets by the same composer. This journey through time sheds a new light on the later works, because the process of getting to know the young Franz Schubert naturally means deepening our knowledge of his language, but also allows us to refine our appropriation of the style, sound and articulation specific to him."

"Building on a number of encounters with leading figures of jazz and world music, we asked five instrumentalist-composers to write us pieces inspired by musical worlds to which they feel close. In addition to these new compositions, we wanted to record Escalay by the Egyptian oud player Hamza el Din who died in 2006, a nod to the Kronos Quartet whose approach is an inspiration to us."

Set-Inhalt: 1CD
Preis: CHF 21.00

Why is it difficult to play the music of François Couperin when it seems so simple at first glance? By offering precious information on the interpretation of his music (and more generally on the interpretation of French music of his time) in his treatise L'Art de toucher le clavecin (The art of harpsichord playing), Couperin provides us with the necessary elements for today's performer, who seeks above all to respect the composer's intentions.

Für die Produktion der 1672 in Venedig uraufgeführten Oper Caligula von Giovanni Maria Pagliardi hat sich Vincent Dumestre etwas besonderes einfallen lassen: Er entschied sich bei der Inszenierung dieser entdeckenswerten Barockoper nicht etwa für menschliche Darsteller, sondern für eine Zusammenarbeit mit Mimmo Cutticchio, einem der letzten Vertreter der berühmten sizilianischen Marionettentheatertradition.
