After this vibrant program of Ernest Blochs music for viola and piano was recorded in 2001, the tapes disappeared for fifteen years. When they resurfaced, artists Paul Neubauer and Margo Garrett were thrilled that the tapes were not only salvageable, but also featured playing that they felt presented their best possible efforts to bring these works to life. Among the works offered here are Blochs powerful Suite for Viola and Piano, hailed by one critic as the greatest work for viola in musical literature.

After the success of the first fourteen reissues, which restored to the limelight some of the gems of the early music repertory in the catalogues of our labels, here are fourteen new titles to allow listeners to renew acquaintance with further treasures of the Renaissance and Baroque (and even a journey through time thanks to Raphaël Imbert’s album Bach Coltrane), performed by some of the leading interpreters of the genre; most of these discs won one or more awards on their first release.

A professional musician at a very early age, Alain Caron is a considerably accomplished bass player. He attended the Berklee College of Music. One of his first excursions into jazz was playing with the Vic Vogel Big Band during the 1970s. In 1977 he co-founded the group UZEB. Their first album, Live in Bracknell, was released in 1981. The following year saw the group putting out Fast Emotion. The next album was 1984's You Be Easy. 1985 saw them release Between the Lines. Two more live albums, Live a l'Olympia and Absolutely Live came out in 1986. The group released Noisy Nights and Live in Europe in 1988. The following year saw the release of UZEB Club. World Tour '90 was released in 1990. In 1992, Caron formed his own group, le Band and released the first album by that group, Alain Caron – le Band.

Genre: Fusion, Jazz-Funk

Critics of funky, R&B-flavored jazz and fusion argue that electric jazz cannot swing, but in fact, electric bassist Alain Caron swings hard on the electric Play. Backed by his Montreal-based outfit Le Band, the French-Canadian improviser brings a lot of passion to this CD. A diverse effort that emphasizes Caron's own compositions, Play ranges from groove-oriented soul-jazz ("P.A.C. Man," "D-CODE") to fusion pieces that can be abstract ("In & Out," "B 12") or sentimental ("Apres la pluie," "Ton Jardin"). The only songs on the album that Caron didn't write himself are Leni Stern's cerebral "Trouble" and John Coltrane's often-recorded "Impressions," which gets an unusual funk-jazz treatment.

The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, although a relatively small orchestra, is one of the most adventurous orchestras in Europe and one of the best orchestras in a country that has more symphonies per capita than any other country. Based in Helsinki, it is the primary radio orchestra of the Finnish Broadcasting Company.

En 2009, le groupe d’André Ceccarelli avec Diego Imbert à la basse et Pierre-Alain Goualch au piano invite David Linx pour l’enregistrement d’un hommage à Claude Nougaro. Le trio se transforme alors en quartet très soudé comme l’ont prouvé les nombreux concerts donnés dans la foulée par les quatre musiciens. Ces 7000 Miles témoignent aussi de cette complicité totale. Même si la voix de Linx est la locomotive du projet, le trio de Ceccarelli n’est évidemment pas là juste pour la déco. Au contraire. L’organe élastique du chanteur bruxellois fait corps avec la musique de ses partenaires.

Nigh on 60 years after his death, the Swiss composer, born in 1880 of Jewish origin, naturalized American in 1924, remains relatively little known by the general public and music lovers alike. Yet his music, full of lyricism, drama, virtuosity, poetry, has all it takes to please. His language combines tonality, bitonality, atonality, elements inherited from the Jewish musical tradition as well as allusions to movie style American music.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, land of freedom, open to the world, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. Rightly or wrongly, the young nation, in full economic expansion, embodied a land of redemption for the composers brought together by Ophélie Gaillard. After Alvorada, her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile, whether suffered or deliberately chosen.
