“Dans les arbres” is both band name and album title of this first release from a Norwegian/French collective that has been pooling energies since 2004, while also drawing on longer-established associations. The release marks the ECM debut of guitarist Ivar Grydeland and clarinettist Xavier Charles. Percussionist Ingar Zach has contributed to projects with Jon Balke (Magnetic North’s “Diverted Travels” and “Statements” by the Batagraf group), while Christian Wallumrød, of course, has been an ECM recording artist for 12 years already, with four albums as a leader for the label, most recently “The Zoo Is Far”, which was issued in 2007.

'The arrival of an orchestra like Les Siècles on the harmonia mundi label is entirely logical: ever since it was founded by François-Xavier Roth in 2003, its musicians (mostly belonging to the new generation) have succeeded in placing several centuries of musical creation in perspective by playing the works they tackle on precisely the instruments used at the time of their premiere – without the slightest concession. The result is quite simple dazzling: never, since it was first heard, has Daphnis et Chloé displayed such a shimmering sound, revealing an infinity of details without ever losing sight of the subtle beauty of the most French of the great ‘Ballets Russes’.‘At this moment in the history of music, Ravel raised the French “Impressionist” orchestral style to a sort of apogee – in a sense it is the last great comédie-ballet in the history of French music’ (François-Xavier Roth).

Mention Marie Antoinette, and inevitably the guillotine springs to mind – one is less likely to think of the harp, which, according to courtiers’ accounts from the end of the Ancien Régime, she played admirably.

Each volume in the 'Portraits' series is devoted to a French composer who has now largely been forgotten. With performances by many talented artists, it presents a panorama of his works. The 'Portrait' of Félicien David aims to complement the discography already available with world premiere recordings of the composer's works. Among these are a glimpse of his orchestral output, with the Symphony no. 3 and the Overture to his opéra-comique La Perle du Brésil, the work that really launched David on his operatic career.

Le Livre de Poche | 2012 | ISBN: 2253166901 | French | EPUB | 288 pages | 0.96 MB

En vrille. Les ados le sont devant nos yeux lorsqu'ils titubent et balbutient, ivres d'alcool et de drogue, qu'ils "pètent les plombs" sans raison, s'automutilent, ne décrochent pas de leurs jeux vidéo, ou se rêvent en squelettes ambulants refusant de toucher à leur assiette. En vrac. Les parents le sont d'assister à un tel désastre. Ils ont souvent le sentiment d'être incapables d'amortir la chute, eux qui ont tant misé sur l'envol prometteur de leurs enfants devenus ados. Parce qu'elles les ont portés ou investis comme leur propre chair, les mères ressentent encore davantage cette impuissance qui, littéralement, leur déchire les tripes. …

Moldau: The Romantic Solo Album” contains some of the most beautiful and well-known pieces from Russia and Bohemia. The composers use their Russian roots to create their own musical language containing elements of emotionally charged joy and the unmistakable feeling of melancholy, which conjures up entire landscapes of musical sounds. With this repertory Xavier de Maistre shows the rich palette of sounds which a harp can accomplish and which is arguably his most distinctive feature.

Longtemps après la chute de 1870, le souvenir du faste du Second Empire était encore vif dans les esprits, suscitant tout autant fascination et condamnation. Cette « légende noire » s’est cependant construite sur une réalité : l’importance accordée à la théâtralité du pouvoir napoléonien, gage de prospérité. Au cœur de cette mise en scène du pouvoir se trouve une institution : la Maison de Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte. …
