"Leclair's single opera Scylla et Glaucus may lack the sheer audacity of his teacher Rameau, but it's enormously likeable…the performers respond…stylishly to Leclair's charming if slightly predictable sound-world…and the conducting preserves a neat balance between drama and ornament…It is clear that Gardiner favours intervention over chilly authenticity; whether or not you agree with all his decisions, the clarity of the image he presents is often provocative and always bracing." – Jan Smaczny, BBC Music Magazine

The fascinating album is devoted to a trio of 18th-century musicians who may be said without any exaggeration to have so exhausted the violin’s potential that their 19th-century spiritual successor, Nicolò Paganini, needed to do little more than consolidate that potential and refine the performer’s technique. The musicians in question are Jean-Marie Leclair (the ANGEL), Pietro Locatelli (the DEVIL), and Antonio Vivaldi (the PRIEST).

With The Fairy Queen, Sébastien d’Hérin and Les Nouveaux Caractères set down on record their musical vision of one of Henry Purcell’s most compelling dramatic works. The 1692/1693 work dates from around half a century before two other Baroque scores which Les Nouveaux Caractères has tackled recently and received significant critical approval: Leclair’s Scylla et Glaucus and Rameau’s Les Surprises de l’Amour (the latter, like The Fairy Queen, appearing on Glossa).

Label: Urban

Scylla est l’une des figures phares et tutélaires de la scène rap belge. Très suivi en France comme en Belgique et dans l’ensemble de la francophonie, il est l’une des plus grandes plumes du rap français et s’appuie sur une fanbase particulièrement engagée. Avec son grain de voix reconnaissable parmi tous, ses textes aussi épiques que spirituels, Scylla s’impose systématiquement comme un véritable «ascenseur émotionnel». Rarement les termes qualité et noblesse auront pris autant de sens dans le rap. Vainqueur de la catégorie musique urbaine – Les Octaves de la musique 2014 (Belgique)

Those crazy Red Priest guys have done it again, making a wonderfully fun and playful disc of thrash-baroque. This small group really tears up the score. I can imagine that Red Priest would be a riot to see live.
I haven't heard any of the pieces played by a 'straight' ensemble, so I can't comment, but I highly suspect these guys of taking some outrageous liberties. But you have to go with the flow here to get your reward from this romp.

This is a truly great operetta interpretation. Gardiner's approach is on an altogether more inspired plane than his rivals. In the Viennese rhythms, he shows himself utterly at home – as in the Act 2 Dance scene, where he eases the orchestra irresistibly into the famous waltz. But there are also countless instances where Gardiner provides a deliciously fresh inflexion to the score.

Jean-Marie Leclair’s fourth and final book of sonatas for solo violin and continuo was published in Paris in 1743. It followed the composer’s return to the French capital from The Hague in the wake of the bankruptcy of his patron, the formerly wealthy merchant François Du Liz. Like the three earlier books, there are 12 sonatas in the publication, each of which has four movements.
