Telemann - Tutti Flauti!

24 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 106Mb

DepositFiles - FileFactory

This CD is extraordinary in many ways, starting with the absolutely perfect choice of works. Granted, Telemann concertos are more or less foolproof, and it takes a pretty bad musician to ruin any piece by this composer. But even so, among all the delicious Telemann concertos available, these are some of the most scrumptious. Furthermore, they are served to the listener on a silver plate, with the best of sauces, and cooked by the best chefs.(...)
I will be quite direct: simply put, this is one of the best flute CDs that I have heard in quite a while, and it belongs in every library and collection. FANFARE: Laura Rónai

Beautiful and impressive playing like this sets the standards to which others must aspire! Early Music Review

Alfred Deller - Complete Vanguard Recordings

35 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - 16 RAR 3.11Gb

"Deller, the first modern virtuoso countertenor, is most often cited for his unmatched expressiveness, his ability to hold an audience rapt with his long-breathed phrases and uncanny, subtle shadings of tone and dynamics. And if you're wondering what this is about, just listen to his rendition of Dowland's "If my complaints", a virtual clinic in vocal poetry. Listen carefully, or you'll miss the most finely-wrought, heartfelt utterances ever captured on a recording. The world has not seen the equal of Alfred Deller; even though we have countertenors today with purer, more even and luxurious tone, none of these singers surpasses Deller in sheer, fundamental artistry or an understanding, internalized feeling for the art of song itself."

Bach - Sonatas & Partitas For Solo Violin

2 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 225 Mb

To many, Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin have become one vast uninterrupted musical fabric. Thanks to French Baroque violinist Amandine Beyer, you have the opportunity to meet each Sonata and Partita anew, each with its own personality and range of musical and technical possibilities.
Beyer’s use of the violin’s unique resources in terms of dynamic swell and highly nuanced tone color, even in the shortest of bow strokes, is consistently exhilarating.
And despite the wealth of expressive means she applies, the music flows smoothly and organically, within individual movements and from movement to movement within individual suites.
Paradoxically, although her playing affirms musicology in its energy and attention to detail and expressive meaning, Beyer uses ornamentation sparingly, usually in repeated passages, and subjugates tempi, with their happy acquiescence, to what she reckons is the music’s most graceful trajectory.
Zig Zag Territoires’ production team, working in a historic Swiss theater dating back to 1837, has given Beyer a natural acoustic in which to become intimate with Bach.
The liner notes, by Beyer and Olivier Fourés, find it provocative that Bach titled the music “Sei solo” (rather than the grammatically correct “Sei Soli”), which can be translated literally as “you’re alone.”
Her performance of a solo violin sonata by Pisendel, “the best-known German violinist of his generation,” provides context for what Bach’s contemporaries might have experienced when they first heard this extraordinary music.
Beyer’s modern fiddle, based on classic models, was made in 1996 by Pierre Jacquier; Eduardo Gorr made her bow in 2000. The combination provides a variety of rich and subtle sound; though sometimes in the fastest movements her bow has to scurry to keep up with the notes, generally it holds its own with Bach’s requests for virtuosity.
Her double-stops throughout are quite pleasing.
