Quella che è stata definita la «piccola era glaciale», tra il 1570 e il 1700, vide le temperature abbassarsi con variazioni da tre a cinque gradi, dando avvio a una vera e propria «rivolta della natura» che sortì effetti devastanti sui raccolti. Philipp Blom dimostra la sorprendente correlazione tra questa circostanza e la nascita dell'Illuminismo, analizzando le ricadute culturali dello sconvolgimento climatico in Europa. Con un registro narrativo e appassionante, Blom costruisce un affresco in cui combina storia delle idee, della cultura materiale, delle scienze della natura, intorno a una suggestione di grande attualità: l'impatto che il cambiamento del clima produce sulla vita delle società. Così, l'avvento della piccola era glaciale diventa il punto di partenza per interrogare e mettere in relazione avvenimenti e discipline che concorrono alla formazione del mondo e del pensiero moderno..

Georg Philipp Telemann is one of the composers whose cause Ricercar has always championed with fervour. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of his death, Ricercar now presents a reissue of its vast repertory, which makes up a complete portrait of the output of this inspired contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach: his sonatas, trios, fantasias, concertos and suites written for all sorts of instruments are accompanied by several sacred compositions, cantatas, and a St Matthew Passion which, like a number of other works in the set, is released on disc for the first time.

So far I’ve been able to go on a tour with Gungfly in Holland in January, supporting Kayak. When we got home from there I started working on what is to become the next album. We’re booked to play Night of the Prog festival in beautiful Loreley, Germany with both Big Big Train and Gungfly in July this summer. Before that we’re playing Gothenburg with Gungfly in April… to be continued!

On this CD for CPO the United Continuo Ensemble together with the tenor Jan Kobow presents secular songs and sacred arias by Johann Krieger taken from his collection Neue musicalische Ergätzlichkeit. Krieger’s musical language ranges from simple choral pieces through to virtuoso coloratura songs. We have combined these fascinating and multifaceted pieces with sonatas from Philipp Friedrich Buchner’s Plectrum Musicum.

Are you ready for extreme 18th century keyboard? The typically sparse packaging graphics of this ECM release may indicate only to German speakers what's contained inside: a "Tangentenflügel" is a tangent piano, a rare keyboard instrument of Mozart's time that used hammers, striking the strings at a tangent, but no dampers. The sound combines qualities of a clavichord (its nearest relative, but the tangent piano is louder), a fortepiano, and a harpsichord.

This attractive mixed programme of Telemann’s works featuring flute or recorder has been designed by Ashley Solomon to celebrate Florilegium’s 25th anniversary. The triple concerto for flute, oboe d’amore and viola d’amore in E major stands out as one of the composer’s most beguiling masterpieces: the limpid opening Andante sounds like a serene evocation of sunrise that anticipates the mature Haydn by several decades; the soloists Solomon, Alexandra Bellamy and Bojan Čičić play with elegant finesse, and also conjure up refined melancholy in an intimately conversational Siciliana. The double concerto for recorder and viola da gamba in A minor is a charming example of Telemann’s taste for synthesising French and Italian musical styles with elements of Polish folk music; Florilegium’s civilised elegance in the French-style Grave, gently Italianate sway in the Allegro, and Solomon’s duet with gambist Reiko Ichise in the Dolce has pastoral sensitivity. At the heart of the programme is Ihr Völker hört, a cantata for solo voice and obbligato instrument that was published in the first instalment of the series Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst. Clare Wilkinson’s softly convivial and articulate singing communicates the cheerful Epiphany text.
