Insiraf - Arab-Andalusian Music

15 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 167 Mb

This recording presents an anthology of magnificent songs from various Mediterranean traditions with a strong Arab influence on performance style. The program features Galician works by Martin Codax (13th c.), the 'Cantigas de Amigo' which are the only songs analogous to the more famous contemporary "Cantigas de Santa Maria" surviving with music in Spain. Berenger de Palou (d.1194) was an Occitan troubadour. Also included are songs in other idioms from medieval Spain, including Sephardic and Andalusian repertory. This CD is a reissue of the "Ondas do Mar" recording from Symphonia label. "This lovely recording succeeds in its goal of transporting the listener back to the lost Iberian world of the 13th century, where a unique culture emerged in the Mediterranean, an amalgamation of Christian, Hebraic and Arabic elements ... This is simply one of the most beautifully engineered recordings I have ever heard. I highly recommend this CD, without reservation, for all audiences." (Continuo) "Stefano Albarello's singing, like the instrumental work, is flexible, sensitive and alive to eastern styles of ornamentation." (Gramophone)

Vivaldi - Concerti per Archi II

tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR Mb

Part of a large Vivaldi edition issued by Italian historical-instrument specialist Rinaldo Alessandrini and his Concerto Italiano, this is the second album devoted to Vivaldi's Concerti per archi, or concertos for strings. Alessandrini uses just one instrument per part here, and although his usual orchestra at the Ospedale della Pietà girls' residence was clearly larger, it's hard to argue with his choice for these pieces, especially inasmuch as it's not clear exactly how they were used (the booklet also argues that they were related to the 17th-century sonata a quattro, further suggesting a small-ensemble approach). These are almost miniatures, three-movement works with each movement just a bit over one minute long (or two minutes in a few cases), and the smaller ensemble scale fits them. So does Alessandrini's characteristically vigorous, punchy approach, scaled down from his quasi-operatic readings of larger instrumental works but losing nothing in highly percussive attacks and stirring, rapid tempos. Not everyone buys this turbo-Vivaldi approach, but it works especially well here. Each of these little movements seems to be exploring a particular possibility of Vivaldi's language, and while 33 of them in a row may seem like a lot, anyone hooked on Vivaldi won't find the album tedious in the least. Together with strong engineering from Naïve and some typically wild graphics that could have come out of Vogue magazine -- or might even have been too far out there for Vogue -- this is another fine entry in Alessandrini's series.

Bach Complete Works (Scores)

BachGesellschaft, Leipzig 1851-1899
49 PDF - 2002 - >16.800 pages - 1.80Gb


Index in the comments or HERE

The Bach-Gesellschaft began publishing Bach's works in 1851 with a volume that started with BWV 1, the cantata Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern, BWV 1. It completed publication in 1900 with its forty-sixth volume. The volumes varied somewhat in editorial quality and accuracy; Britannica both lauds the editing of Wilhelm Rust for the edition and notes a deterioration of standards after his death, including a volume in which "the bass and violin are a bar apart for a whole line" (apparently a reference to sloppy editing). Nevertheless, the Bach-Gesellschaft's volumes were a groundbreaking achievement and contributed greatly to the study and appreciation of Bach's music. They remained the standard edition of Bach's complete works until the publication of the Neue Bach-Ausgabe, begun in 1954 and published by Bärenreiter.

Andrea Falconieri - Canzone, Sinfonie e Fantasie

21 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 84 Mb

Andrea Falconieri (c 1585-1656) was born in Naples and worked extensively throughout Europe. In his lifetime he was best-known for the light canzonette for voice and guitar, as well as for instrumental dances, but was well-versed in all genres of the time. After many adventures and much wandering, Falconieri was hired in 1639 as musician of theorbo and archlute"" in the highest institution of Naples, the Royal Chapel of the Palace. There he was later elected maestro to take the place of Trabaci who died in 1648. Il primo libro di Canzone, Sinfonie, Fantasie, Capricci, Brandi ..., his instrumental collection of 1650, is the only such collection printed in southern Italy during the era. The true `colour´ of the collection is derived from Falconieri´s experience with early lute suites and from Iberian-Neapolitan culture with a richness and variety of instrumental timbres.

Orient-Occident II - Hommage a la Syrie

18 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 108 Mb

The first volume of Orient Occident - released in 2006 - turned out to be a landmark in Jordi Savall s discography : for the first time, the Maestro had explored an extra-European repertoire, demonstrating the same musicological expertise he had shown with composers such as Marin Marais.This album soon became a best seller. His new opus is a focus on Syria, alternating instrumental and vocal pieces. Musicians from Syria, Lebanon and Israël play alongside Hespèrion XXI and illustrate the artistic and humanist process we have come to expect from Jordi Savall, A process more necessary than ever.

La Follia Itinerante (The Hurdy-Gurdy Band)

11 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 63 Mb

It is that moment in time and place when the soul catches a slow motion glimpse of itself traveling willy-nilly through the maelstrom of the great vortex. At once noble and base, it is coloured in a chromatic blue melancholy and dry red pathos. There too is the peace that comes with acceptance of one's fate... and the anguished impossibility of not struggling against this same fate... La Follia Itinerante holds up a mirror that we may see ourselves as we really are: beggars before God. And makes us laugh at our own pitiful and ludicrous condition.

A true Follia is unique at each playing. It exists for a moment and then vanishes. This one was caught on a warm and sunny afternoon in a garden house on the southern slopes of the Schwarzwald. It takes as inspiration the Follias of Nicholas Chédeville, Corelli, Vivaldi, Marais and the many other composers, known and unknown, who have added to our treasure store of Follias.

Giuseppe Tartini - The violin Concertos (17th and Final Volume)

2 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 190 Mb

Volume 17 brings to an end Dynamic’s series devoted to Giuseppe Tartini’s violin concertos. Giovanni and Federico Guglielmo and Carl Lazari again serve as the soloists on period instruments, with L’Arte dell’arco. They’ve adopted some procedures to bring order to the project. Since this will probably be the last time I have the opportunity to work with these releases, I’d like to repeat briefly their work rules, as stated by their harpsichord player and fellow transcriber, Nicola Reniero. They’ve taken the liberty of filling in what’s missing from Tartini’s manuscripts; they’ve left the choice of alternate solo parts to the soloists; they’ve allowed tempos to vary, generally speeding up in tuttis and playing solos freely; they’ve taken ornamentation from Tartini’s own suggestions and treatise; they’ve composed cadenzas when ones by the composer weren’t available; and they’ve adopted A=442, which they think represents a practice current in Tartini’s time and in the area in which he worked. Danilo Prefumo’s notes identify all the concertos as having come from Tartini’s second period, roughly from 1735. Soloists and ensemble recorded the first CD in September 2009 and the second in August 2010, both in Studio Magister. 

All lovers of the violin and its colorful history should be grateful to the Guglielmos, Lazari, and Dynamic for this series, so energetically played and featuring such clear and, at the same time, reverberant recorded sound—and such informative notes. This monument should stand for all time and be a part of every aficionado’s library. Urgently recommended as a whole and in its parts, including this one. A standing ovation for the impossible dream so stunningly made real.

Eduardo Paniagua (born 1952 in Madrid, Spain) is a Spanish architect and musician, specializing in medieval Spanish music.
Between 1966 and 1983, he was a member of the group Atrium Musicae de Madrid, led by his older brother Gregorio, playing wind instruments and percussion. More recently he has been a founding member of the groups Cálamus and Hoquetus which specialize in the music of Arabic Andalusia.
In 1994, he created the group Música Antigua to perform and record the Cantigas de Santa Maria. In the same year he also founded the group Ibn Báya Ensemble together with the oud player Omar Metioui, for the performance and recording of Andalusian music. Other regular collaborators include Moroccan singers Said Belcadi, Mohammed El-Arabi Serghini, and the Algerian oud player Salim Fergani.
Atrium Musicae de Madrid

Perhaps the group's most famous recording is Musique de la Grèce Antique (Music of Ancient Greece), in which they performed ancient Greek music carefully taken down off scattered fragments of still existing papyrus. Performing the ancient compositions also meant the reconstruction of an arsenal of ancient instruments. This certainly was a fascinating aspect of the group's life performances during a series of acclaimed international tours. The success of this 1978 recording is not the only feather in the group's collective cap. The 1976 Musique Arabo-Andalouse delves into Hispanic-Moslem music, and is credited with creating a whole new interest in this fascinating genre of southern Spain. From the late 1970s into the early 1980s the group began a series of recordings dealing with 15th and 16th century popular Spanish songs, then sailed to the New World for the fascinating Las Indias de Espana, a recording of Pre-Columbian music collected from archives. The decision to dissolve the group was no doubt based on some of the younger brothers' interest in beginning solo careers.

Bach - Cantatas (Montreal Baroque)

4 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 615 Mb

This is a very nice set of Bach cantatas recently put out by the Baroque festival in Montreal, Canada under the direction of Eric Milnes. Eric Milnes follows the school of thought with that of Joshua Rifkin and Andrew Parrot of the Taverner Consort and Players in which he uses one voice per part. The playing is tight and crisp and very clean, the use of continuo is tasteful, particularly in the organ - much lighter than Rifkin's approach on his older Bach recordings and not as heavily improvised and ornamented as Ton Koopman's realisations. The singing is very nice and clean with tasteful ornamentation and reminds me of the better Koopman recordings and sounds lighter than the dark and very "Germanic" sound of the Harnoncourt recordings (a favourite of mine)- more akin to John Eliot Gardiner's recordings.
