For some periods of its long history Venice was the most alive and artistically innovative city in Italy. Around the turn of the seventeenth century it was more – the veritable music capital of Europe. Musicians from north and west Europe stayed there to learn from the composers, instrumentalists and singers who had either been born in Venice, or had themselves gravitated to the Republic's glorious and inspiring cultural (and physical) environment. Only Dario Castello (fl. 1600-1630) of those composers presented here falls into the first category.

“A memoria d’uomo coulisse e tasti non si sono incrociati così spesso senz’altra compagnia che loro stessi. Tra le opere compiute in tal senso vi è quella più recente (2002) firmata da Wycliffe Gordon ed Eric Reed:«We». Risalendo il colle del tempo ci s’imbatte nella coppia Willem Van Manen & Misha Mengelberg condue brani incisi nel 1979 alla Bimhuis di Amsterdam e inseriti dell’album BvHaast che porta il nome del trombonista olandese. E già questo attira.” (Alceste Ayroldi, Musica Jazz 10/2013).

Label: Fontana/6325 332 | Release: 1975 | Genre: Breton-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Folk music
At the time of buying this LP, I thought I was going to find a Stivell immersed in the Prog-Folk music… my surprise was great after listening to it completely: Totally unplugged, no instrument with electric cables. Today is one of my favorite records of this legendary harpist. And I think he took the risk to go back to his Breton roots and immerse us in the Breton-Folk music.

Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Rock music
Hands down, this record which is actually buried in oblivion, features about 30 minutes of pure magic – electric folk of its finest kind and not a bit less majestic and unique as the critically acclaimed work of Steeleye Span and others. And the remaining 10 minutes are absolutely good, too!
I got this album when I didn’t have a clue what Celtic folk was actually about. You cannot imagine how amazed I was when I dug that one out after having falling in love with all the electric folk stuff from the UK. And it’s today I found out that Dan Ar Bras (later of Fairport Convention) and the Yacoub siblings (of Malicorne) contributed to that album as well.

This review is based on the LP version of this album (the CD version if you can find it, apparently has additional songs). The first seven tracks formed side one, and are accoustic: Alan playing the harp and singing, with some additional accompaniment, all of of haunting and beautiful.
Alan Stivell – Reflets (1970) Fontana/6312 011 – Original FR Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - NEW 2017 RIP!

Label: Fontana/6312 011 | Release: 1970 | Genre: Progressive-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Prog Rock music
For all intents and purposes, this was Stivell’s debut, and an impressive and mature debut at that. From the opening notes of the title cut, the openness and greenery of the rich Breton countryside is mainlined for the listener. One does not need to have set foot in Brittany to visualize that which Stivell paints so vividly. Most tracks are sung in French but are no less authentic for it.

Born in Brescia around 1571, Giovanni Battista Fontana lived in Venice, Rome and Padua, where he died during the plague of 1630. His music surprises by the mastery of counterpoint, the simplicity and the expression of its slow movements, the complexity of its ornamentation and the elegant vivacity of its short dance sections. Nicknamed 'dal Violino' and described as "one of the most singular virtuosos the age has seen". Fontana has left us an outstanding example of early Baroque instrumental music. On this release, Daniel Cuiller leads the ensemble Stradivaria in a selection of sonatas.
