contents:


This 7-CD set contains the complete chamber music of the French master, with the complete “Les Nations” (a musical depiction of nationalities), Concerts Royaux, Les Gouts réunis, L’Apothéose de Corelli and de Lully and other pieces.

Instrumentation is for traversos, violins, oboes, bassoon, viola da gamba, cello, archlute and harpsichord, expertly played on original instruments by the ensemble Musica ad Rhenum conducted by specialist Jed Wentz.

As a motto for this set may serve a quotation from one of the pieces by Couperin himself: “One should not attach too much attention to the precise measure of this piece, but one should sacrifice everything to good taste”!

"And herein can be found the strength of Musica ad Rhenum's interpretation : Seldom is French Baroque music offered with so much irresistible elan, can the structure be heard so clearly and are the melodies brought out with so much love for and attention to detail." Fonoforum

J.S.Bach - Concerts avec Plusieurs Instruments


6 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - 6 RAR 600Mb


The ensemble Café Zimmermann, lead by violinist Pablo Valetti, is one of the new breed of Baroque groups offering lean, high-energy performances on historical instruments. The name refers to a Leipzig coffeehouse where Bach's Collegium Musicum instrumental ensemble might have performed in the 18th century. Imagined in that setting, the one-instrument-per-part performance here is plausible, although evidence that such performances occurred in Bach's time does not indicate that such performances were desirable. Bach himself requested an orchestra of 24 players from the Leipzig city council, and a piece like the Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, echoes French ensembles of that size. For those down with the small-group approach, this release offers a very high level of musicianship and some fresh readings from Valetti.

A pre-eminent musician of our time, Jordi Savall adds another gem to his already extensive catalogue with Mare Nostrum (Latin for ‘Our Sea’). Savall looks to the Mediterranean Sea as a centre for ancient culture, the sea that brings us together, a dialogue of souls, performing music from Morocco, Israel, Spain and Lebanon with the usual line-up of musicians including Montserrat Figueras and Lior Elmaleh.

La Sublime Porte: Voix d'Istanbul


16 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 121 Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


Jordi Savall is a fearless performer who is fascinated with facilitating musical dialogues between Eastern and Western traditions. --Npr

The Sublime Porte (Sublime Gate) was the name of the open court of the sultan, led by the Grand Vizier. It got its name from the gate to the headquarters of the Grand Vizier in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, where the sultan held the greeting ceremony for foreign ambassadors. It was an ancient Ottoman practice to make the gates of cities and kings palaces places of assembly. Later the name came to refer to the Empire s position as gateway between Europe and Asia. Following the success of the album Istanbul, Jordi Savall crosses new boundaries between Orient and Occident. This time, the vocal traditions of the Ottoman Empire, Armenia and the Jewish Diaspora are brilliantly resuscitated. Instrumental interludes enable us to enjoy this journey through time and space. In addition to Hespèrion XXI, this album features the elite of Turkish traditional musicians under the inspired direction of Maestro Savall.

Domenico Scarlatti - Sonatas for Viola d'Amore


23 tracks - Mp3 192 Kbps - RAR 95Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


A deep musicological research concerning Domenico Scarlatti solo sonatas was done in 2008 by Valerio Losito and Andrea Coen: this work has determined that at least four sonatas for solo instrument and basso continuo are actually written for Viola d'amore. This discovery makes possible to relocate in a unified view the apparent incongruities of these sonatas, attributed over the years to many different instruments, like violin, mandolin, flute, oboe, etc.
This discovery has already been acquired by the musicological literature in an essay by Coen and Losito (COEN, Andrea LOSITO, Valerio Ipotesi sulla destinazione strumentale di cinque sonate per strumento melodico e basso continuo di Domenico Scarlatti, in Domenico Scarlatti Adventures, Essays to commemorate the 250th Anniversary of His Death, a cura di Massimiliano Sala e W. Dean Sutcliffe, Ad Parnassum Studies vol. 3, Bologna, Ut Orpheus, 2008, pp. 225 - 240).

Handel in Italia


2 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 191Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


For the second Glossa Portrait release the spotlight falls upon a singer who, since the 1990s, has been excelling in broad swathes of Italian Baroque music, whose qualities had remained under-performed and under-appreciated until musicians of sufficient quality and understanding of such repertoire had emerged. The soprano Roberta Invernizzi has been one such musician, gifted with an ability to master the technical, expressive and temperamental challenges set by composers of that time. Many are the recordings of the music of Vivaldi, Monteverdi and Alessandro Scarlatti graced by Invernizzi’s sparkling presence (and she has also added a scintillating theatrical verve to many of the incursions into Neapolitan opera buffa in the company of Antonio Florio).

Given Roberta Invernizzi’s notable successes on stage (and on recordings) in portraying some of Handel’s more famous female characters from the operas of his maturity, it was an inspired choice of Fabio Bonizzoni to involve the Milanese singer in his series of Le Cantate Italiane di Handel, and Invernizzi appeared on no less than five of the seven discs in that greatly-admired series. This two-disc Portrait album draws on those recordings to highlight the delicious characterizations of Invernizzi in Handel’s vivid and visceral portrayals of nymphs and goddesses such as Diana, Cloris, Amarilis, Lidia and Fili, Arcadian characters one and all but nonetheless human in personality. Alongside the opportunity to experience the “feminine” viewpoint explored through arias from Handel’s Italian Cantatas there is a chance also to enjoy with this new release the instrumental qualities of players found in Fabio Bonizzoni’s La Risonanza.

G.F.Handel - Deidamia

3 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 270 Mb


FileFactory


Despite being Handel's last Italian opera composed for London before he turned his full attention to English oratorios, Deidamia shows that Handel was still at the peak of his powers. Alan Curtis's recording reveals the subtlety in Handel's musical characterisations of Ulisse (brilliantly sung by Anna Bonitatibus) and Deidamia (a stunning and emotional performance by Simone Kermes). Il Complesso Barocco demonstrate that the score has many beauties that were almost entirely unfamiliar to even the most dedicated Handel lovers.

G.F.Handel - Oreste


2 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 209 Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


During the 1730s Handel padded out his London opera seasons with pasticci, assembled using arias by his favourite contemporaries (notably Vinci). There are three exceptions that consist entirely of Handel's own music: Oreste, Alessandro Severo and Jupiter in Argos. In these forgotten operas, Handel cannily adapted a mixture of old and recent arias to a new libretto, and composed a few new pieces where necessary. Scholars have considered them unworthy of inclusion in the accepted canon, but this seems rather snobbish if one remembers that Handel used the same formula to assemble Rinaldo (1711) for his London debut.

Pierre Attaignant - Preludes, Chansons & Dances For The Lute


22 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 88Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory



This is essentially small, intimate music, so perhaps it is best not to make too much of it. Still, there is something seductive about these little lute pieces by Pierre Attaingnant (1494-1552), a contemporary of Rabelais who obviously shared that immortal author's excitement over being part of an age when the sheer joys of being human were about to be rediscovered. From his cramped printing shop in the Left Bank, not far from the Sorbonne, Attaignant produced quiet yet extraordinary music for the lute. Hopkinson Smith, without doubt the finest lute player in the world today, here follows his explorations of Iberian lute music with this revealing glimpse at the sounds of the Paris of Rabelais. It is a delicious recording. Octavio Roca

D.Scarlatti - The Complete Sonatas (Lester)


38 CD - MP3 192Kbps - 45 RAR (3,65Gb)


DepositFiles - FileFactory


IMPORTANT: I noticed that in the original release some of the sonatas in Volume 1 were incomplete (K.20, 163, 172, 177, 178, 180, 185, 189, 191, 194) and one was missing (K.176). That is now fixed.



What will make this series by Richard Lester the first (and currently the only) truly complete recording of Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas is the inclusion in Volume 7 of works extra to the heretofore accepted fifteen-Volume corpus, works authenticated by W. Dean Sutcliffe, author of The Keyboard Works of Domenico Scarlatti; he also supplied some manuscripts. Such manuscripts in Scarlatti's own hand are rare. Lester also points out that, although the Kirkpatrick numbers are used throughout this project, the chronology of the sets follows Maria Barbara's manuscripts.

Johann Sebastian Bach - The Cantatas


50 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - 50 RAR - 6.1 Gb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


For those who are not familiar with the Bach Collegium Japan, it is an orchestra and choir founded in 1990 by their director and keyboard player Masaaki Suzuki. The orchestra is renowned as Japan’s leading period instrument players applying their historically informed knowledge of sacred baroque music and specialising in the work of J.S. Bach. The chosen venue for Suzuki’s cycle of recordings has been the Shoin Women’s University Chapel in Kobe, Japan.
Suzuki really is a master of his art directing impeccable vocal and instrumental performances.

I added to each folder the score of the cantatas and I hope this is good enough to celebrate post n° 1001. Enjoy.

J.C.Bach & W.A.Mozart - Concert Arias


7 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 95Mb


DepositFiles - FileFactory


The origin of the dialogue between a solo voice and several obbligati instruments dates from the early baroque period (1600), and probably emerged from the hum drum setting of the market square where a singer would perform to the accompaniment of a few wind instruments. More refined relations of this musical form soon could be found in sacred and operatic works. This CD contains the complete obbligato arias by master and pupil -- J.C Bach and Mozart. Therefore we can hear examples of the pre classical (1750-75) and the classical period (1775-1820).

There is one undisputed masterpiece here -- Mozart's Ch'io mi scordi di te? K505 for soprano and piano. The aria is an expression of personal sadness. Nancy Storace, the first Susanna in Figaro, had left Mozart and returned to London. This is no operatic love affair gone wrong, but a real life one. Mozart himself is represented by the piano, Nancy by the stunning soprano role.

Mozart's friend and teacher J.C. Bach has a world premiere recording on this CD. His aria Sventura in van mi lagno of 1773 is an impressive virtuoso work for high soprano with two obbligato horns. One of the players J.C Bach wrote for was none other than Giovanni Punto, hence the extremely challenging nature of the horn part for a natural horn. (Brilliant notes)

Where next for Claudio Cavina and La Venexiana after their exhilarating run of recordings of Monteverdi madrigals, operas and much more? One route is proving to be in the direction of Francesco Cavalli, the 17th century composer who spent much of his working life in Venice, starting off as a chorister in St Mark's Basilica when Monteverdi himself was in charge. Although Cavalli has been known as a composer of Venetian seicento sacred music, it is his prolific contribution in the field of opera where he became one of the leading figures involved in the development of commercial opera companies from the 1640s onwards - that has been receiving greater attention from artists in more recent times. And it is with a dramma per musica in Artemisia from the mid 1650s, with its tale of love, deceit and honour and the upholding of the virtues of the Venetian Republic (all this richly captured by the expressive style of Cavalli), that Cavina has chosen to contribute to that fresh look at Cavalli's music on this new recording from Glossa.

Singers in the established style of La Venexiana, including the vocal star of 'Round M, Roberta Mameli and, recent finalist in the Handel Singing Competition, Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli (who takes the role of the love-torn Queen Artemisia, a character strong enough to drink her dead husband's ashes...) give vent to this glorious display of Venetian operatic splendour.

In her third ‘Tragédiennes’ album for Virgin Classics, French soprano Véronique Gens continues her exploration of the highways and byways of the French operatic repertoire, this time covering the late 18th and 19th centuries and with a prime focus on roles for the deeper, darker-toned female voice.
“Gens's singing is razor-sharp and powerfully direct, matching the period instruments well.” The Observer, 21st June 2009

“The much-admired French soprano Véronique Gens presents an interesting selection of music drawn from the relatively little-known repertoire of French classical opera...it’s good to hear this music attacked with such gusto.” The Telegraph, 10th June 2009 ***
