Antonio Vivaldi's probably early Nisi Dominus, RV 608, and Stabat Mater, RV 621, both for solo voice and ensemble, have received several top-notch recordings, so the listener can pick on the basis of voice type and stylistic preference. Countertenor David Daniels has essayed the pair with Fabio Biondi and his Europa Galante ensemble, and you can hear the preternaturally rich contralto Sara Mingardo in a reading with the fiery Italian Baroque specialist Rinaldo Alessandrini. Here you get a countertenor, Philippe Jaroussky, in the Nisi Dominus and a female contralto, Canadian Marie-Nicole Lemieux, in the Stabat Mater. The pairing robs the whole of unity at one level, but makes musical sense; the Nisi Dominus is a more athletic work that benefits from the power of the male voice, while the Stabat Mater, especially in Vivaldi's truncated and highly dramatic setting, may require the audience to identify with a female singer. In the event, Jaroussky is nothing short of sublime in slow sections like the "Cum dederit" (track 4), a masterpiece of quiet tension whose effects are amplified by the extreme, almost respiratory sensitivity of the Ensemble Matheus under director Jean-Christophe Spinosi. Hardly less effective is Lemieux, with an extremely emotional reading in which she seems to mean every word. A bonus on this disc not present on the others is a little Crucifixus from the Credo in G major, RV 592, featuring both singers and well placed in the middle of the program. Superb examples of Baroque vocal art all around, with sound that captures the subtlety and the full dynamic range of the music, which at times gets very hushed indeed.

Following two successful volumes of ‘Journey Into Deep Jazz’ on BBE, proprietor of London’s ‘IF Music’ record store and walking musical encyclopedia Jean-Claude kicks off a new “Introduction To…” album series with this affectionate retrospective of sister labels Black Saint and Soul Note. Cited by some as Italy’s answer to Blue Note, Black Saint and Soul Note have together amassed a catalogue in excess of five hundred albums between 1975 and 2008. Founded by Giacomo Pellicciotti (producer of Enrico Rava’s seminal “Katcharpari” album), Black Saint scored a home run with it’s very first release: Billy Harper’s 1975 “Black Saint” LP, the follow-up to his much lauded “Capra Black” album on Strata-East.

Un giorno d'estate del 1914 Marcel parte per la guerra. Parte con un volto da bambino e con addosso l'odore del fieno, degli animali e del sudore di un giovane contadino del secolo scorso. Torna con un volto che non è nemmeno più quello di un uomo. Ha un'orbita vuota al posto di un occhio, un ammasso di cicatrici sul lato sinistro, lo zigomo distrutto e, anziché l'odore del fieno, la puzza di alcol e di etere addosso. Eléonore, la cugina, non chiede da quale regno dei morti sia tornato, lo accoglie a braccia aperte e lo sposa. Marcel falcia la terra incolta, tira l'aratro al posto delle vacche perdute, lavora senza tregua nel porcile. Al cadere della notte si ubriaca. L'alcol lo calma oppure gli accresce la sofferenza. Dopo più di mezzo secolo, nel 1981, la fattoria è ancora li, con la vecchia Eléonore, il figlio Henri e i nipoti. La porcilaia, però, non è più quella di Marcel: è diventata un enorme allevamento industriale fatto di recinti di due metri per tre che ospitano ciascuno da cinque a sette maiali che sguazzano nelle loro deiezioni. Sistemate su grigliati, in box stretti, le scrofe figliano in piedi, lasciando cadere i piccoli come sterco sul suolo duro. Come un despota antico, Henri guida quella «fabbrica dei maiali» e sprona i figli a prendersene cura.

Classical, Choral | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 71:32 min | 320 MB
Label: Carus | Tracks: 14 | Rls.date: 2017

Michael Praetorius is, without doubt, one of the trailblazing composers of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. His synthesis of simple, folk-like chorales with the lush aesthetics of the new Italian style make him one of the most multifaceted and innovative musicians of his time. For the Reformation Year 2017, the ensemble Gli Scarlattisti under the direction of Jochen M. Arnold presents a series of his chorale concertos for larger ensembles, based mainly on texts by Martin Luther and Philipp Nicolai. With their witty and eloquent musicianship, the performers invite their listeners to explore the impressive oeuvre of one of the fathers of Protestant church music!

Majestic and profoundly moving, Mahler’s 2nd Symphony (‘Resurrection’) constitutes one of the towering monuments of late-19th-century symphonic music and one of the composer’s most popular works. It was therefore logical that Jean-Claude Casadesus, a living legend of the conductor’s art, chose this work, which has accompanied him for many years, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Orchestre National de Lille.
