Label: harmonia mundi | Tracks: 23 | Time: 76:17 min

Raphaël Pichon has invited Stéphane Degout to make his recording debut for harmonia mundi in a multifaceted exploration of the Underworld. The French baritone reincarnates the figure of Henri Larrivée, the famous tragedian of Rameau and Gluck. Around a reconstruction of an imaginary Mass of the Dead, sacred and secular merge, revealing some of the most extraordinary pieces from the operatic repertory of the Enlightenment. Music of death and mourning on an epic scale that inspires Pygmalion to overwhelming heights of pathos.

In my copy’s booklet, there’s a translation botch by which the German “alle Stücke, die aus handschriftlichen Ausgaben musiziert werden, basieren auf direkten Konsultationen mit Wiesbaden MS, eingerichtet von Barbara Thornton” becomes “All pieces performed from diplomatic editions based on direct consultation with Wiesbaden Ms, prepared by Barbara Thornton”. How did “diplomacy” get involved with that, I don’t know. No, I take that back, I do know: it's probably "diplomatic" in the now rare sense of "related to diplomatics" (not diplomacy), which are "the science of deciphering old official documents, as charters, and of determining their authenticity, age, or the like".

François de Bedos de Celles (1709-1779), described as a "monk of notable erudition," was also a highly trained and supremely talented builder of organs in eighteenth century France. The greatest of his organs was Dom Bedos, built for the abbey of Saint-Croix in Bordeaux – a glorious instrument with rich blends and subtle colors, with nuanced balances and stark contrasts, with whispering pianissimos and roaring fortissimos. Leonhardt's chosen program opens with the organ extracts from François Couperin's Messe propre pour les couvents, deeply devout music that Leonhardt performs with absolute command and complete dedication. The remainder of the program is a collection of works by better- and lesser-known composers, ranging from three Voluntaries by John Blow and two Toccatas by Georg Muffat to a Fantasia by Abraham van den Kerchkoven and a Chaconne by Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer, but Leonhardt performs all of them with total commitment and rapturous ecstasy. Alpha's sound is once again the omega of recorded sound.

Anna Foa - Portico d'Ottavia 13. Una casa del ghetto nel lungo inverno del '43
Italian | 2013 | 143 pages | ISBN: 8858123298 | EPUB | 0,2 MB

Un'antica casa medioevale ormai degradata, un vasto cortile rinascimentale. È qui che il 16 ottobre del 1943 i nazisti arrestano più di trenta ebrei, un terzo dei suoi abitanti, tra i più poveri della Comunità. Sono per lo più vecchi, donne e bambini. Altri quattordici saranno catturati nei mesi successivi. Questa è la storia degli abitanti della Casa e dei nove mesi segnati per gli ebrei romani da oltre duemila deportazioni. Sono presi per strada, nel quartiere del vecchio ghetto da cui non si sono allontanati, nelle stesse case in cui sono tornati, nei negozi, perfino al bar. Li arrestano soprattutto i fascisti, le bande autonome dipendenti direttamente da Kappler mosse dall'avidità della taglia, guidate dalle delazioni delle spie. Tutto può accadere: sono l'avidità e la crudeltà la norma della spietata caccia all'uomo..

He's a loner and first generation immigrant, who also happens to be a professional hitman. He's never had reason to care about anybody and she has no one else to turn to. Together they form a makeshift bond that will forever change both their lives.
