Christophe Rousset - Louis Couperin
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 2 Cds,
21 mai 2010 | Aparte | Megaupload + Fileserve

Avec ce double volume de Suites de clavecin de Louis Couperin, et après ses époustouflants enregistrements Decca (Royer, d’Anglebert, Forqueray), Christophe Rousset poursuit son exploration du clavecin français. Il donne ici une vision épurée, tragique et respectueuse de la richesse des harmonies et du grand geste déclamatoire de cette musique.

Bach - Concerts avec plusieurs instruments IV ~ Café Zimmermann
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 1 Cd, 346 Mb
12 janvier 2009 | Alpha | Megaupload + Filesonic

As you probably know, the title of this disc, Six Concerts avec plusieurs instruments, is the actual title inscribed by Bach on his presentation manuscript of the Brandenburg Concertos. Alpha is implementing a novel concept of releasing the six Brandenburgs, one per disc, in a series that will eventually incorporate not only the Brandenburgs but also the orchestral suites, and most, if not all, of the extant concertos—the latter in reconstructions if they are presumed to have been derived from earlier sources. This is the Volume IV in the series. I haven’t heard the three previous discs, but if this one is typical, it would be very good news for listeners...

Bach - Concerts avec plusieurs instruments III ~ Café Zimmermann
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 1 Cd, 401 Mb
16 avril 2007 | Alpha | Megaupload + Filesonic

The ensemble Café Zimmermann continues its recording of the orchestral output of Johann Sebastian Bach. As in the previous volumes in the series, the latest is planned as a concert, but this preference for liveliness and diversity over a more systematic approach does not exclude rigour and coherence in the choice of pieces that make up each volume.

Schumann - Musique de chambre ~ Martha Argerich & friends [boxset: 3 CDs]
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 3 Cds
07 juin 2010 | Virgin Classics | Megaupload + Fileserve

After the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Robert Schumann (June 8, 2022), we could not dream of recording more appropriate gift than this set of chamber music, under the active patronage of Martha Argerich. He broke timely deafening silence that stifles this commemoration, when compared to the clanking celebration Chopin, earlier this year...

Bach - Concerts avec plusieurs instruments II ~ Café Zimmermann
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 1 Cd, 334 Mb
04 septembre 2007 | Alpha | Megaupload + Filesonic

The second instalment of Bach’s music for instrumental ensemble interpreted by Café Zimmermann brings the same fresh, vivid and coherent approach as the previous album. Beyond the formal variety they exhibit, Bach instils in all these works a tremendous feeling of musical ‘irrigation’: whether in a concerto movement or a dance, it is life itself that invades the music.

Debussy - Complete Works for Piano, Volume 5 ~ Jean-Efflam Bavouzet
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 3 % Recovery | 1 Cd, 204 Mb
26 novembre 2009 | Chandos Records | Megaupload + Filesonic

The three ballets Debussy composed during his final decade have a checkered history. He prepared piano versions for Khamma and La boîte à joujoux, yet did not get around to orchestrating past the beginnings of each work. While the composer completed Jeux, of course, the premiere was not a success, and the score took decades to find its way into the orchestral repertoire. As Jean-Efflam Bavouzet explains in his helpful booklet essay, while La boîte à joujoux's keyboard version easily stands on its own, the piano scores for Khamma and Jeux range between thinly utilitarian to literally unplayable. For this reason Bavouzet prepared his own editions that brilliantly merge orchestral intention with pianistic viability, as well as correcting note errors in the original printed editions. More importantly, Bavouzet plays them stunningly...

Rameau, Marais, de Visée, Sainte-Colombe, Forqueray - Tombeau pour Mr de Ste Colombe et autres portraits ~ Ensemble Spirale, Marianne Muller
Classical | Eac, Ape+cue, log | covers+booklet | 1 Cd, 343 Mb
27 mars 2008 | Zig Zag Territoires | Megaupload + Filesonic

“Composing a tombeau was a uniquely French way of honouring the life and musical legacy of a departed colleague. These are fascinating and eloquent performances.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2008

“This 350th birthday tribute to the French viol composer Marin Marais makes an excellent introduction to his music…. The E minor Suite, with its flowing, melancholy sarabande, energetic gigues (one of which involves stratospherically high double-stopping) and the grandly sorrowful Tombeau on a chromatic ground-bass, which makes a satisfying conclusion.” The Telegraph

"On est immédiatement saisi par l'élan, l'énergie débridée dégagée par l'ensemble. Quelle rondeur, quelle chaleur, quelle présence charnue du son !" -- Classica, février 2002
"L'ensemble est magnifique de dynamique, d'expression, de phrasé. Tout y est à la fois vivant et nuancé, libre et d'une parfaite maîtrise, simple et terriblement sophistiqué." -- Le Monde, janvier 2002
