Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains - Solide Mirage
EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks)+cue, log, front cover | 41:22 min | 201 MB
Label: Domino Recording Co. – WIGCD379P | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 2017
Indie Pop, French, Singer-Songwriter

François Marry’s fifth album refines his band’s combination of African-influenced guitar, French tradition, and tender-hearted indie-rock. “Grand Rérèglement” channels thrumming Malian guitar and “Apocalypse à Ipsos” bounces on sweet Ghanian highlife, while “Jamais Deux Pareils” and “Bête Morcelée” mine darker, western rock modes. Even if you don’t understand Marry’s French lyrics, it’s evident he’s a dreamer: wiry and yearning on “1982,” and swooning in the classic chanson mode on the sweet “Perpétuel Été.”

Louis Frémaux - The Complete CBSO Recordings
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”.

The string quartets of Friedrich Theodor Fröhlich (1803-1836) form a unique contribution to Swiss early romanticism. He was the most promising young talent of Swiss romanticism, but when his musical activity failed to meet with recognition, he threw himself into the Aare on 16 October 1836. Fröhlich’s music is distinguished by refreshing and natural melodies, simplicity combined with compelling effects, and rich in emotional expression and unexpected harmonic modulations.

Frágil - Avenida Larco (1981) [Reissue 1995]
EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 267 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 107 MB | Covers (14 MB) included
Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Rock Symphony (RSLN 027)

The Peruvian progressive rock band Fragil was founded in 1976 and gained quite huge success back then. Bands such as Genesis and Yes inspired them, and they took their name from the Yes album "Fragile" (1972). Fragil have released four albums and this is a re-edition of their first album "Avenida Larco" from 1981. Their sound is very beautiful, often dreamy and dominated by typical 80's sounding polyphonic synthesisers and lyrics in Spanish.
La Main Harmonique, Frédéric Bétous - Ockeghem & Compere: Musique au temps d'Anne de France (2010)

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 01:03:54 | 326 MB
Genre: Classical, Vocal | Label: Ligia Digital | Catalog: Lidi0202217-10

French group La Main Harmonique is named for the "Guidonian hand," known to generations of music history graduate students, which teaches solmization syllables by means of labeled finger joints. That suggests the basic orientation here, which is toward specialists; the booklet dutifully lists library sources but does not provide anything so helpful as translations of the 15th-century French texts (there are some almost completely black photos of the performers, though). It's nice, however, to have recordings of this secular chanson repertoire, which in the case of Johannes Ockeghem is not so well represented on recordings as his intellectually fearsome masses.

Genre: Classical | Style: Vocal

I was definitely not prepared for the utter charm and simplicity of these wonderful songs, grouped together on disc for the first time. Lortzing's melodies are easy on the ear and the Neue Detmolder Liedertafel are a crack group of singers, injecting their own characteristic charm into the music. (…) You can't really put a plug on this one, listening over and over again always increases the enjoyment. Just go ahead and buy it!

« Il arrive un moment, dans certains pays, à certaines époques, où les hommes semblent attendre un événement important et tragique qui permettrait de résoudre tous les problèmes. Ces périodes sont généralement nommées : avant-guerre. Elles sont assez mal choisies pour tomber amoureux. En 1940, à New York, un écrivain débutant nommé Jerry Salinger, vingt et un ans, rencontre Oona O'Neill, quinze ans, la fille du plus grand dramaturge américain. Leur idylle ne commencera vraiment que l'été suivant…
Schumann: Romanzen - Holliger: Romancendres, Gesänge der Frühe (2009, ECM New Series # 2055) [RE-UP]

Heinz Holliger - Romancendres & Gesänge der Frühe / Clara Schumann - Romanzen

Label/Cat#: ECM New Series # 2055 | Country/Year: Germany 2009
Genre: Classical | Style: Romantic, Contemporary

"…Holliger's homage to Schumann continues with the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart, the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR, and their eerie performance of Gesänge der Frühe, a highly contrasting piece to Schumann's work of the same title. The text includes ominous excerpts of letters regarding Schumann's death and even pathology reports. Regrettably, the liner notes do not provide listeners with an English translation of the text. Both of Holliger's compositions on this album are intriguing and credit is due for his innovative bridging of the centuries, but his style of composition may not be suited for the casual listener" ~allmusicguide
