Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet inspired many composers from Benda to Prokofiev through Berlioz, Gounod or Tchaikowsky and it is always a challenge for a musician to approach such a subject so full of history. With Star-Cross’d Lovers, French composer David Chalmin gives a new look at Shakespeare’s drama : a contemporary ballet choreographed by Yaman Okur, written for two pianos, electric guitar, electronics and drums.

“Domingo easily outshines his earlier recording with Giulini…while Katia Ricciarelli as the Queen gives a tenderly moving performance, if not quite commanding enough in the Act V aria. Ruggero Raimondi is a finely focused Philip, nicely contrasted with Nicolai Ghiaurov as the Grand Inquisitor” Penguin Guide

Ricciarelli, the Ninetta, is a loyal and accomplished Rossinian and a regular visitor to Pesaro. Her vocal portrait of this wronged country girl may strike some as being too sophisticated. I recall an old 78rpm recording of Ninetta's cavatina sung by Lina Pagliughi that seemed to strike exactly the right note of unaffected artlessness. No need to count the spoons after this girl had left for town. Ricciarelli, by contrast, rather cossets the music and occasionally elaborates it, attempting in the process perhaps to suggest a degree of vocal ease that she does not now quite possess. As an old man, Rossini wrote variants and cadenzas for this cavatina for the soprano Giuseppina Vitali but Ricciarelli appears to be using her own ornaments.

C'era una volta una piccola valle sperduta tra i monti. Una valle di quelle selvagge, con alte montagne e pareti di ghiaccio, dighe imponenti e laghi profondi di acqua cristallina. Ed è proprio qui a Daone, in Trentino, che comincia la nostra storia. La storia delle Funne, del loro viaggio e del loro sogno. Funne in dialetto significa donne, e le nostre Funne, ricche di sogni e di voglia di avventura, sono le irriducibili ottantenni del circolo pensionati Rododendro…

These works, both written at the beginning of the 20th century, are inspired by the religious rites of ancient times. - The Sacre was thought by Stravinsky to transcribe in music the pagan celebrations of polytheistic Russia when Debussy Dreamed of producing a more heterogeneous picture of the different customs of the world of yore. The two men were friends and maintained a correspondence which suggests that Debussy was fascinated and inspired by The Rite of Spring - whose first at the TCE in 1913 deeply marked the spirits.

Now Katia Labèque has released an album of solo performances and duets – the latter with three jazz piano giants in Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, as well as two tracks for Sting on vocals, plus Dimension X producer/guitarist David Chalmin. The conversations with the three pianists all represent eloquent balances of Labeque's fragile precision against freewheeling improvisational energy. My Funny Valentine (with Hancock) shifts from wistful beginnings to a driving boogie; We Will Meet Again (with Corea) is a fitting tribute to composer Bill Evans's delicate clarity; and Besame Mucho (with Rubalcaba) grows turbulent in its middle section. Sting is a little theatrical, and Chalmin's Purple Diamond has a faintly David Brent-like fervency, but Erik Satie's Gnossienne No 3 is as exquisite as always. –John Fordham
