In about 1622, an album of etchings by the French graphic artist Jacques Callot (1592-1635) was published, under the title Balli di Sfessania…
The prints in this series - Callot’s most exuberant and delightful - depict dances known in Neapolitan dialect as the sfessania. Such dances, as Callot’s etchings demonstrate in salacious detail, are characterized by violent and sometimes obscene physical contortions and gesticulations. Each plate features a pair of figures pulled from the repertoire of popular entertainers, their balletic interactions running a comic gamut from mock grace to blatant crudity

Italian comedians attracted audiences to performances at every level, from the magnificent Italian, German and French court festival appearances of Orlando di Lasso or Isabella Andreini, to the humble street trestle 'lazzi' of anonymous quacks. The characters they inspired continue to exercise a profound cultural influence, and an understanding of the 'commedia dell'arte' and its visual record is fundamental for scholars of post-1550 European drama, literature, art and music.

Although now faded into obscurity, Jacques Duphly was one of the most prominent French harpsichordists of his time, famed for his excellent teaching skills and known for his enviable connections with the French aristocracy. His keyboard works are a veritable treasure trove of music for harpsichord lovers; despite having been an organist in his youth, he soon realised that his talents lay with the smaller keyboard instrument, and he moved from Rouen to Paris to make best use of his skills.

Label: Glossa

Wilbert Hazelzet's legendary poetry on the flute has been one of Glossa's trademarks for many years. With this double reissues of his j.S. Bach recordings, the label recovers Hazelzet at his best: on the one hand, he reimagines what Bach's output for teh solo flute could have been, by combining the Flute Partita with his own transcriptions of three Cello suites, and on the other, he teams up with his year-long artistic partner Jacques Ogg to give us yet more transcriptions of Bach's everlasting output. Here's a double recording for eternity.
