Free and open minds and quiet temperament, Daniel Erdmann (tenor saxophone) and Christophe Marguet (drums) have naturally found themselves in a face-to-face formula, in 2010 for fun and very seriously in 2012 to record the album "Together Together" published in 2014 (Abalone), one of our favorites that year. So we find them together, surrounded by two of their most faithful contrabassist friends: Henri Texier and Claude Tchamitchian.

L’histoire entre Les talens Lyriques, Christophe Rousset et Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) est l’histoire d’une réussite. Les sept disques (Persée, Roland, Armide, Amadis, Phaéton, Bellérophon et cet Alceste) du compositeur d'origine italienne naturalisé français enregistrés par l’ensemble et le chef et claveciniste Français sont tous un véritable succès critique. En quelques années, Les talens Lyriques et Christophe Rousset sont passés maître du style et de l’écriture Lulliste au point d’être devenus un (le ?) véritable intournable du genre.

Christophe Galfard - L’universo a portata di mano. In viaggio attraverso la fisica dello spazio e del tempo
Italian | 2016 | 303 pages | ISBN: 8833927393 | EPUB | 3,1 MB

Immaginate di essere fatti di pura coscienza, senza corpo, e di essere in grado di spostarvi a velocità vertiginose nello spazio immenso e profondo, capaci di miniaturizzarvi per immergervi dentro al mondo brulicante di un nucleo atomico, o di diventare enormi per tuffarvi a capofitto proprio dentro a un buco nero. Immaginate di essere proprio lì, a toccare fisicamente tutte quelle cose così affascinanti che nei libri di fisica vengono spesso descritte in termini un po' asettici e talvolta decisamente difficili. Ma questa volta capite tutto, perché non vi stanno solo descrivendo l'universo: lo state proprio toccando con mano. Christophe Galfard vi farà volare direttamente sulla superficie del Sole, nei meandri di una galassia, alle origini del Big Bang e dentro un buco nero, dove tempo, spazio, materia e energia - e ogni altra abituale categoria della fisica, di cui Galfard è uno degli interpreti più brillanti - si confondono.

Créé en 1995 par Jean-Christophe Frisch, premièrement sous le nom de XVIII-21 Musique des Lumières, XVIII-21 Le Baroque Nomade est un ensemble français ayant participé à un renouvellement de l’interprétation de la musique baroque, en s’appuyant sur les découvertes musicologiques les plus récentes. L’ensemble a notamment développé le concept de baroque nomade, travaillant sur les rencontres historiquement avérées entre musiques baroques européennes et musiques extra-européennes.

In November 1772, as the 16-year-old Mozart was preparing to astonish the Milanese with his third operatic work for the Teatro Regio Ducal, his older contemporary, Tommaso Traetta (1727–79) from the Puglia region of Italy, was presenting the premiere of his second opera for the court of Catherine the Great in St Petersburg. Today, the former’s Lucio Silla is probably better known than the latter’s Antigona. But which is the finer work? On the basis of this outstanding new recorded version, I would say that Traetta’s tragedia per musica in three acts far outclasses Mozart’s opera seria for its consistent musical inspiration and sheer theatrical know-how. If Traetta’s music were at all familiar to opera-lovers today, that would not be so surprising because this contemporary and disciple of Gluck was, by 1772, an experienced composer for the theatre, already in the prime of a life that was to end, prematurely, only seven years later. His career had taken him from the conservatory in Naples to that city’s famous San Carlo, where his first commission in 1751 was Il Farnace. From there he travelled throughout Europe.

A masterpiece born of the collaboration of composer Lully and his librettist Quinault, the “tragédie en musique” called Alceste caused a scandal when it was created in 1674. The tragic register was reserved for the theater, while the music was content with the comic vein. But thanks to the combined talents of Lully and Quinault, the stage of the Royal Academy of Music saw the development of the new tragic and lyrical genre.

Christophe Wallemme describes this effort as a "wink at the great standards of American jazz," a laudable objective but an affirmation that seems intended to confuse the listener. The explicit musical references on Start "So Many Ways…" point instead to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Miles Davis' Bitches Brew rather than "Body and Soul" or "My Funny Valentine." No matter.

The achievement of Namaste—and it is a genuine achievement—is also the achievement of Miles Davis's In a Silent Way (Columbia, 1969): namely, providing room to breathe in a crowded room of musicians—soloists all, not a big band. (On Miles's subsequent Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1969), in contrast, a crowded room of musicians was happy to sound like a hot and tumultuous marketplace.) Despite the carefully-crafted compositions and arrangements, it's that sumptuous but spacious sound fabric that is most remarkable about this record.

D’un père Français et d’une mère Mauricienne, Christophe Wallemme après de longs séjours à l’étranger (3 ans au Liban, 4 ans en Inde), aborde la musique à l’age de 15 ans. Né à Paris, il commence en optant pour la guitare avant de se diriger vers la contrebasse (après avoir entendu Scott Lafaro auprès de Bill Evans). Christophe Wallemme fait rapidement ses premières armes dans les clubs parisiens aux coté de Walter Davis junior, Ted Curson, René Urtreger, Maxim Saury, et remporte en 1988 un Prix de soliste au concours de la Défense.
