Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 14:10:40 | 3.87 GB
Label: Warner Classics | Tracks: 162 | Rls.date: 2017

This 12-CD set joins Warner Classics’ Icon series, which pays homage to some of the greatest recording artists of the recent past. The box is devoted to the French conductor Louis Frémaux, who, from 1969 to 1978, preceded Simon Rattle as Principal Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. For the first time, it assembles all the recordings that Frémaux and the CBSO made for EMI. Over the course of the 1970s their discography played a substantial role in building the orchestra’s international reputation before the arrival of Rattle as its Principal Conductor in 1980. Indeed, such was the orchestra’s prowess in the French music favoured by Frémaux that, in 1978, Rattle described the CBSO as “the best French orchestra in the world”.

Jazz, Modern Creative

Asian Fields Variations marks the first time that clarinettist Louis Sclavis, violinist Dominique Pifarély and cellist Vincent Courtois, long-time colleagues, have recorded as a trio. Sclavis summoned the project into existence, but this is a democratic group of creative equals: "I proposed that we make a real collective, and each of us composes for the programme." All three are major figures in contemporary French creative music: this is a new group with a lot of history. Sclavis and Pifarély have played together in diverse contexts for 35 years, Sclavis and Courtois for 20 years, but they retain the capacity to surprise each other - and their listeners - as improvisers.

Si tu aimes la plongée sous-marine tu vas dans le Pacifi que, si tu aimes grimper tu vas dans l'Himalaya, si tu aimes la musique tu vas à Nashville. » Voici donc Jean-Louis Murat expatrié à Nashville avec des musiciens d'exception, pour nous livrer un album très musical et varié où la poésie se mêle à de grandes chansons. Un disque, malgré son titre, peu ordinaire et résolument à part dans l'oeuvre du barde prolixe 1.5 ans après le précédent album, voici le moment idéal pour que Murat reprenne sa place de Grand de la chanson française… en termes de statut, certes mais également en termes de ventes!

Après 2 ans sans album, Jean-Louis Murat revient avec Grand Lièvre. Enregistré en quelques jours dans le sud de la France, le disque sonne comme s'il avait été capté dans les conditions du live. Dix titres aux musiques et textes magnifiques, des thèmes chers à l'auteur : la nature, la dérision de la condition humaine, le doute, l'amour, la solitude. Mais ici magnifiés, nimbés de mélodies tournoyantes, à la fois familières et surprenantes, agrémentées de bruissements, bruitages et dialogues mystérieux, et, nouveauté muratienne, de choeurs hypnotiques et lumineux. Du Murat au sommet de son art, intime et immédiat, secret et universel. A savourer avec de grandes oreilles.

This is an excellent Rachmaninoff programme, taking us from the high romance of the relatively early Suite No. 1 to the composer’s last opus numbered work, the Symphonic Dances. The Suite No. 1 is a very fine work, and this duo plays gorgeously in that sighing third movement Les larmes. The spectacular finale, Pâques rings out spectacularly, the powerful tone of the well paired pianos delivering a remarkable listening experience.

Louis Armstrong's tenure as second cornetist to the great King Oliver is one of jazz history's legendary apprenticeships, on par with the one Miles Davis served with Charlie Parker or Stephane Grappelli's with Django Reinhardt. Sadly, only a handful of recordings survive from this formative period in Armstrong's career. This LP features 18 of King Oliver's 1923 recordings with Armstrong, as well as a bonus appendix consisting of seven tracks recorded in 1924 by the Red Onion Jazz Babies under Armstrong's sole leadership (and featuring, on one number, a very young Alberta Hunter). The performances are as red-hot as you'd expect, and include two King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton duets.

Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | # CDA66699 | Time: 01:01:07

These are spirited and well-recorded versions of what probably remain Spohr's most popular works. The Nonet is freshly and attractively played, with a proper sense of chamber music informing the performance: that is to say, there is a companionable approach to phrasing, with ideas taken up and returned or passed on as if the players were really listening to one another rather than waiting to say what they were going to say anyhow. Only in the finale do matters become a touch competitive: it is not necessary to go at quite such a speed, and indeed the feeling is of pace rather than the real liveliness which only a very slightly easier tempo might have produced; while some of the string articulation is only just in position. The Adagio is beautifully played, and together with the nimble Scherzo is given a gentle serenade manner: nothing is gained, and sometimes all lost, by trying to make something too profound of these movements.

Recorded in 1957, Ella & Louis Again re-teams Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong after the success of their first album and a popular series of concerts at the Hollywood Bowl the previous year. Stylistically, Fitzgerald and Armstrong had very different histories; he started out in Dixieland before branching out into classic jazz and swing, whereas Fitzgerald started out as a swing-oriented big-band vocalist before becoming an expert bebopper…
