Jazz buffs are very familiar with Wynton Marsalis and his trumpet. Opera lovers know the quality voice of lyrical soprano Kathleen Battle. A perfect blending of these two performers, in the Baroque music, has been acheived in this CD. The match of human voice and trumpet seems to us, at the end of the Twenth Century, a mismatch. But to quote Ellen T. Harris, who wrote the liner notes, "The real and sympolic power of the trumpet makes its combination with the quieter instruments and voice seems, at first, imbrobable, but a softer sweeter style of playing in the high ("clarino") register was typical in art music for the trumpet…". Sounds simple enough, but Wynton is one of the few players who can do it well. So well in fact, that at several points Kathleen's voice and Wynton's trumpet blend into one voice, a balanced singularity, even duplicating each others vibrato exactly. A truely amazing accomplishment, which can only be fully appreciated by listening; but once you hear this glorious sound, you'll want to upgrade your stero system to capture its fullness…

Since the dawn of Christianity, Christmas has been celebrated with festive singing. In the Baroque era numerous composers such as Charpentier, Delalande, Balbastre, Dandrieu and Daquin created masterpieces out of these simple tunes. When Sofi Jeannin told me of her wish to get her Maîtrise choir to sing Christmas music, I was delighted. For a long time I had been gathering French sources of the 17th and 18th centuries with the intention of working on baroque carol arrangements with Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien.

That's right, King! in Swedish, "Kong" rather than "Drottning"! Christina (1626-1689) was the only surviving child of Sweden's greatest monarch Gustavus Adolphus Vasa, who raised her to rule as a king and whose ministers executed his will by crowning the six-year-old girl King! Christina ruled under a regency until age 18, and then personally and earnestly over some eight years until her abdication in 1654. Her involvement in Swedish affair didn't terminate with her abdication, however. She returned to Sweden several times, on the last of which she might well have resumed her throne but for her whimsical conversion to Catholicism. She also drew her wealth, in her initial years in Italy, from vast estates in Sweden.

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.

This is the second Deutsche Grammophon CD on which Jian Wang is the featured soloist; the first was an album of Haydn's Cello Concertos (463180-2). (He's also recorded the Brahms Double Concerto with Gil Shaham and Claudio Abbado – DG 469529-2.) The cellist was born in China in 1968, and studied at the Shanghai Conservatory. Thanks to the impression he made on the visiting Isaac Stern, he later came to the Yale School of Music to study with Aldo Parisot. DG gives the CD the omnibus title "The Baroque Album." Fair enough, but this is Baroque music as it was understood in the middle of the previous century, not as it is understood today. Three of the four works are played not quite as the composer originally imagined them. The Couperin (François, not Louis) is a 1924-vintage arrangement, scored for cello and string quartet, of five pieces from the composer's Concerts royaux.

Reedition bienvenue avec un exellent son remastérisé de cette trés belle version de Gardiner d'un oratorio de Handel qui est une oeuvre singuliere au sein de la production de ce grand compositeur. L'Allegro, il Pensiero ed il Moderato est dans sa structure trés different de l'oratorio traditionnel et consiste en un assemblage assez libre de solos et de choeurs, mettant en scene 3 personnages allegoriques , un peu comme "il trionfo del tempo", mais chaque" personnage" est ici representé par plusieures voix. Exellent casting choisi par Gardiner au niveu des voix, d'ou emerge Patricia Kwella, dont la beauté et la pureté du timbre illumine cette tres belle oeuvre, proposée a un prix trés doux, aucune raison de passer à coté.
