This stunning and generous collection belongs right at the top of the heap in its respective repertoire. The Debussy is still a comparative rarity in concert if not on disc, a remarkable fact given that it's wholly gorgeous from first note to last. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's excellence as a Debussy pianist already has been acknowledged by just about everyone who has heard him, and needs no further advertisement here. The performance is outstanding, sensitive to every nuance, but also very French in its clear-eyed sensibility and understanding that focused rhythm and supple tempos prevent the music from turning excessively sentimental or blandly pretty. And in Tortelier, Bavouzet has a conductor who seconds him every step of the way. A similar sensibility informs these swift, razor-sharp, and utterly thrilling accounts of the two Ravel concertos. That for the left hand seldom has sounded so exciting, or in its jazzy central march section, so sinister. Listen to the bite that both soloist and orchestra bring to that descending scale theme, and notice the way Bavouzet shapes his cadenza so as to preserve the illusion of multiple parts played by multiple hands–all without slowing down at the tough passages. It's really an amazing performance by any standard. Even the dark opening, often merely murky on other recordings, has shape and urgency, the buildup to the initial entry of the piano creating incredible tension.

Disciple of Vlado Perlemuter and Jean Hubeau, Michel Dalberto has stood out as a master and ardent defender of French music in the course of a thirty-year career. His signature for the Aparté label of a series of recordings devoted to Debussy, Fauré, Ravel, and Franck marks his awaited return.

Claude D'Anna's film of Verdi's Macbeth is a gloomy affair, stressing the descent into madness of the principal villains. It's acted by the singers of the Decca recording of the opera (with two substitutions of actors standing in for singers) and the lip-synching is generally unobtrusive. The musical performance is superb, conducted by Riccardo Chailly with admirable fire, and sung by some of the leading lights of the opera stages of the 1980s.

"Il Medioevo da noi proposto è vicino e lontano insieme. È vicino perché allo strato dei retaggi preistorici e antichi, ha aggiunto (e spesso sostituito) apporti che noi avvertiamo, che oggi viviamo come retaggi fondamentali, creazioni d'identità originali: paesaggi urbani e rurali, conflitti e compromessi tra ragione e fede, rapporti difficili tra lo Stato e la società, organizzazione scolastica e universitaria, sensibilità artistica e letteraria. Tante cose ci arrivano dal Medioevo: il libro (alla fine dell'Antichità il codex cominciò a sostituire i rotoli), i nostri abiti (la camicia e i calzoni che hanno fatto dimenticare l'antica toga), il calendario, il genere letterario del romanzo, gli atteggiamenti nei confronti dei poveri, le reazioni di fronte alle epidemie (dalla lebbra e dalla peste all'Aids gli echi non mancano certo), ecc.

Free and open minds and quiet temperament, Daniel Erdmann (tenor saxophone) and Christophe Marguet (drums) have naturally found themselves in a face-to-face formula, in 2010 for fun and very seriously in 2012 to record the album "Together Together" published in 2014 (Abalone), one of our favorites that year. So we find them together, surrounded by two of their most faithful contrabassist friends: Henri Texier and Claude Tchamitchian.

Pendant deux ans, Claude Chossat a servi la Brise, ou du moins l’un de ses fondateurs. D’abord petit truand, il a voyagé dans sa roue et grimpé l’échelle sociale du grand banditisme à la vitesse de l’éclair en servant de chauffeur et de confident à Francis Mariani, le plus violent et le plus fou de tous.
Une ascension qui s’est arrêtée net le 23 avril 2008, lorsque «Francis» décide de tuer l’un de ses frères : Casanova, le roi Richard. Claude Chossat doit fuir, le gang et la Corse. Il se réfugie en Suisse avant de se livrer à la justice et de tout raconter…

These classic performances belong in the collection of anyone who cares about Debussy's piano music. Certain creators and re-creators become synonymous. Beethoven and Schnabel, Chopin and Rubinstein at once spring to mind. Yet in the entire history of performance I doubt whether there has ever existed a more subtle or golden thread than that between Debussy and Demus. French jibes about the reduction of Debussy’s clarity to a charming but essentially decorative opalescence are little more than the bitter fruit of envy, of an exclusivity, that finds an Фгыекшфт pianist’s supreme mastery of their greatest composer’s elusive heart and idiom hard to stomach.
