For biographer Philipp Spitta, Bach's period as organist and later Konzertmeister to the Duke of Weimar (1708-17) was the time of his ‘early mastery’. Nowhere is this more evident than in the small but highly distinguished body of cantatas he wrote there, whether for the court chapel – the Himmelsburg or ‘Castle of Heaven’ – or for some clearly very joyful wedding (BWV202). From the ravishing duets for soprano and oboe of the latter to the penitential strains of BWV199, the radiant voice of Carolyn Sampson and the virtuosos of the Freiburger Barockorchester do full justice to Bach's inventiveness.

The winner of numerous international competitions, the brilliant young accordion player Ksenija Sidorova here presents her debut recording; a recital for solo classical accordion. A particularly accomplished artist, Ksenija has collaborated with many leading musicians (including the Belcea Quartet, and Valergy Gergiev with the CBSO), and won numerous awards and accolades. Still an underexploited resource in western classical music, the accordion has had a fast-increasing amount of music written for it since the mid-20th Century. Here, Ksenija Sidrova brings a varied recital featuring some of the best contemporary compositions for the classical accordion, alongside transcriptions of well-known works. No composer has been transcribed more often than Bach; but the accordion - heard here in Bachs Overture in the French Style - brings an advantage that few other instruments can offer; its notes do not die away as soon as they are sounded. This allows an array of colouristic possibilities, denied to other musicians.

L'Après-vivre - Serge Doubrovsky

Serge Doubrovsky avait raconté dans le Livre brisé (Prix Médicis 1989), la tragédie de sa vie conjugale et sentimentale. Avec l'Après-vivre, Serge Doubrovsky, s'il se peut, va plus loin encore. Il raconte sa vie quotidienne (professeur à l'université de New York, écrivain à Paris), ses filles (qu'il adore), revient sur sa femme alcoolique et morte, étale avec une complaisance inouïe ses lâchetés, ses manies, sa culpabilité, son alcoolisme à lui, son besoin des drogues, sa paranoïa, et jusqu'à sa vie sexuelle… Il a une jeune compagne, aussi vacillante et dingue que lui, qui l'adore en même temps qu'elle le déteste…

The appetite for evolving performance practices in Bach’s St Matthew Passion appears undiminished as we have gradually shifted, over the generations, from larger to smaller ensembles and also towards a greater dramatic understanding of the implications of Bach’s ambitious ‘stereophonic’ double choir and orchestra choreography.

Very few conductors have recorded as much Bach as Karl Richter and none can lay a stronger claim to a legacy based on championing the master. Richter's reverence for Bach is evinced by the simplicity, splendor, and grandeur with which he consistently imbued his performances exemplified here by these landmark recordings of the Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites. In Archiv's original-image bit-processing remastered transfers as well, the sound is better than ever. This is cornerstone Bach that should not be missed.

Musicological research has always raised doubts about the authorship of some of Bach’s Sonatas, particularly the BWV 1031, 1033, and 1020, while the others were certainly written by J. S. Bach. Whoever the author of the three dubious Sonatas may be, these are a group of songs that display wonderful artistic and musical qualities, and can easily be considered a point of reference for all flute players. Francesca Pagnini and Annibale Rebaudengo present these Sonatas on modern instruments, enriched by modern philological studies.

A midprice reissue collecting this young French pianist s three baroque recordings. I fell in love with Tharaud s Rameau disc several years ago and never once missed the rattling sound of the harpsichord. Tharaud points out that Rameau s frequent ornamentation would have served to prolong notes on a harpsichord. This isn t necessary on a modern piano, and there s an incredible delicacy to the pianism here, with the trills and turns played with a barely credible lightness of touch. It s infectious stuff, with the witty character pieces from the Suite in G vivid and alive.

Rhett Madison e Clementine O'Hara sono stati amici per anni prima di decidere di provare a stare insieme. Tutti intorno a loro li trovavano perfetti l'uno per l'altra, ma nessuno si immaginava quanto sarebbe cambiato il loro rapporto una volta insieme. Dopo alcuni mesi di frequentazione decidono di trasferirsi dall'altra parte del paese e di andare a vivere insieme. Nessuno dei due però è preparato a tutti problemi e i drammi che si troveranno ad affrontare come coppia che vive nel peccato, come dice la nonna di Clementine. Rhett si comporta ancora da scapolo e Clementine non è sicura che la transizione da amici ad amanti sia stata la decisione migliore. Decidono quindi di iscriversi a un corso sulle relazioni di coppia per scoprire se sono fatti per stare insieme. Sembra che Rhett sia più interessato al lato passionale della loro relazione, piuttosto che al lato emotivo più profondo. Quando Tomas e Jake andranno a trovarli porteranno divertimento e caos mentre Rhett e Clementine si trovano ad affrontare problemi che potrebbero di nuovo cambiare il loro rapporto.
