Late sixteenth-century Florence was alive with theater. Seeking to achieve the perfect blend between music and poetry, intermedi (interludes) were inserted into plays. These interludes were presented with lavish visual and musical resources. After reaching an initial peak in 1589 with the intermedi composed for Bargagli's La pellegrina, the tradition survived the burgeoning genre of opera through the work of such composers as Peri, Caccini, Monteverdi and Gagliano. On this release, rather than aiming for the impossible ideal of a reconstruction, Raphaël Pichon has devised a sort of imaginary intermedi by selecting the finest gems from this repertory, featuring the figures of Apollo, Orpheus and Eurydice, and above all Cupid.

Going well beyond mere historical interest, this album unveils the charms of a repertoire that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It demonstrates how the viola finally emerged from the violin’s shadow thanks to virtuoso playing, now resuscitated by the talent of Antoine Tamestit and Cédric Tiberghien in pieces which offer much more than the exquisite languors of bel canto. Italian for 'beautiful singing' or 'beautiful song', the term remains vague and ambiguous but is commonly used to evoke a lost singing tradition; in this case the famed singing tone of Antoine Tamestit's viola, a 1672 Stradivarius, loaned by the Habisreutinger Foundation.

On this successful album, Simone Kermes presents her dedication to bel canto. Despite the title the Baroque soprano hasn’t suddenly switched from one voice type to another but is simply following her own interpretation of this term, arguing that bel canto is “inconceivable without reference to the Baroque tradition”.

En 1901 mourait Victoria, symbole d'un siècle d'austérité. Loin de la légende "victorienne", on découvre ici une souveraine et une femmeardente.
Il y a cent ans, la reine Victoria mourait et entrait dans la légende comme une petite dame obèse et impérieuse. Son nom symbolise un siècle d'hypocrisie, d'austérité sourcilleuse, de chasteté puritaine. Le moment est venu de corriger le mythe d'une Victoria "victorienne"…

Attorno alla misteriosa comparsa della Balena, una minuscola isola, uno scoglio di tutti e di nessuno, si intrecciano i destini di León, Anita, i loro figli e un'intera società che conduce una vita monotona, china sui campi, vittima delle angherie dei proprietari terrieri e del governo…
