Free and open minds and quiet temperament, Daniel Erdmann (tenor saxophone) and Christophe Marguet (drums) have naturally found themselves in a face-to-face formula, in 2010 for fun and very seriously in 2012 to record the album "Together Together" published in 2014 (Abalone), one of our favorites that year. So we find them together, surrounded by two of their most faithful contrabassist friends: Henri Texier and Claude Tchamitchian.

This stunning and generous collection belongs right at the top of the heap in its respective repertoire. The Debussy is still a comparative rarity in concert if not on disc, a remarkable fact given that it's wholly gorgeous from first note to last. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's excellence as a Debussy pianist already has been acknowledged by just about everyone who has heard him, and needs no further advertisement here. The performance is outstanding, sensitive to every nuance, but also very French in its clear-eyed sensibility and understanding that focused rhythm and supple tempos prevent the music from turning excessively sentimental or blandly pretty. And in Tortelier, Bavouzet has a conductor who seconds him every step of the way. A similar sensibility informs these swift, razor-sharp, and utterly thrilling accounts of the two Ravel concertos. That for the left hand seldom has sounded so exciting, or in its jazzy central march section, so sinister. Listen to the bite that both soloist and orchestra bring to that descending scale theme, and notice the way Bavouzet shapes his cadenza so as to preserve the illusion of multiple parts played by multiple hands–all without slowing down at the tough passages. It's really an amazing performance by any standard. Even the dark opening, often merely murky on other recordings, has shape and urgency, the buildup to the initial entry of the piano creating incredible tension.

Andy Emler wished to work again with Marc Ducret more regularly. As a reminder, there was a record in quintet with Marc at the beginning of the 80s… More recently Andy invited Marc to join the MegaOctet, in particular in London and at the Europa Jazz Festival. The artistic closeness of both musicians is great, even if the way of their musical route diverges. Besides, the trio Emler, Tchamitchian, Echampard (13 years of existence, 3 CDs) is a formation which spreads its rich influence and its peculiarity in Europe. The music, fruit of a slow ripening, is marked by the formal requirement, and Andy's respect for three musicians who play with.

This recording presents an unusual pairing of the complete string quartets by Szymanowski and Debussy. Szymanowksi is one of Poland’s most famous composers. Influences on his style are many (Bartók’s percussive and motoric drive, Ravel’s coloristic sonorities) but he found his own personal language, lush, opulent, rich and sometimes exotic, always expressing a deep emotional content. Debussy’s string quartet dates from his early years, a beautiful and romantic work, the French answer to Wagner’s richly chromatic language.

Catone in Utica (1737), written for the Teatro Filarmonico in Verona, is one of Vivaldi’s last operatic masterpieces. Its splendid score, however, has come down to us incomplete: in fact the first of the three acts is missing. With infinite patience, Jean-Claude Malgoire has reconstructed the missing act, realising the recitative passages complying perfectly to Vivaldi’s stylistic idiom and integrating the missing arias with original arias taken from other operas written by the Red Priest. Thus Catone in Utica is at last available, in a world-première recording, in its complete form. This is unquestionably one of the highest moments in Vivaldi’s production of music theatre, a concise and highly efficacious score, rich in coups de théâtre and memorable arias, brought to us now in all its dazzling virtuoso beauty by a formidable singing cast. The recording was made in Turcoing, in France, during the performances given in November 2001 and has all the exciting freshness of a live recording in which the excellence of the performers is underlined by the audience’s enthusiastic applause.

"Il Medioevo da noi proposto è vicino e lontano insieme. È vicino perché allo strato dei retaggi preistorici e antichi, ha aggiunto (e spesso sostituito) apporti che noi avvertiamo, che oggi viviamo come retaggi fondamentali, creazioni d'identità originali: paesaggi urbani e rurali, conflitti e compromessi tra ragione e fede, rapporti difficili tra lo Stato e la società, organizzazione scolastica e universitaria, sensibilità artistica e letteraria. Tante cose ci arrivano dal Medioevo: il libro (alla fine dell'Antichità il codex cominciò a sostituire i rotoli), i nostri abiti (la camicia e i calzoni che hanno fatto dimenticare l'antica toga), il calendario, il genere letterario del romanzo, gli atteggiamenti nei confronti dei poveri, le reazioni di fronte alle epidemie (dalla lebbra e dalla peste all'Aids gli echi non mancano certo), ecc.
