Sylvie Vartan is a French pop institution, as popular today as when she first took the yé-yé scene by storm in 1962. The vivacious and always stylish Sylvie was also a pioneer amongst the new breed of French female artists, crossing the Atlantic several times in the early 60s to record. She proved remarkably adept at tackling material in English, which resulted in many superb recordings chanted in a husky, compelling accent. Her main foreign release in that era was the US-only album "Gift Wrapped From Paris". It combined tracks from the 1963 "Sylvie à Nashville" LP along with new sessions cut in New York in late 1964 with a crack session crew plus Ellie Greenwich and friends on backing vocals, all directed by Sylvie's brother Eddie Vartan. Later on Sylvie recorded in England and utilised the talents of her British in-house writers, Tommy Brown and Micky Jones, the latter later to become famous in the band Foreigner.

The multiple award-winning recordings of the Kammerorchester Basel are a genuine asset to the record market. With “Bologna 1666” they take their listeners on a musical journey to what was probably the most important musical centre of 17th-century Italy. Founded in 1666, the Accademia Filarmonica di Bologna, one of Italy’s oldest academies of music, influenced the musical life of its times far beyond the borders of Italy itself. It is thus all the more astonishing that with few exceptions, such as Giuseppe Torelli or Lorenzo Gaetano Zavateri, most of its composers have fallen into oblivion. For this recording, the Kammerorchester Basel, headed by its concert-mistress Julia Schröder, have unearthed outstanding masterpieces.
