Pierre Robert - En Grands Motets

8 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 118

Uploaded - FileFactory

Chosen by Louis XIV in 1663 to conduct the music of his Chapel, Pierre Robert spent the next twenty years, in alternation with Henry Du Mont, composing the works that accompanied the daily services of the court of France. The creator with Du Mont and Lully, of the grands motets the emblematic genre of a 'French style' admired by all Europe, Robert was one of the last heirs to the great French polyphonic tradition which he brought to a high degree of contrapuntal complexity and rhetorical refinement, as can be seen in his 'Motets pour la chapelle du Roy' published in 1684. Olivier Schneebeli is Director of Les Pages and les Chantres de la Chapelle, the choir of the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles. Prior to joining the Centre in 1991, he and William Christie founded the choir of Les Arts Florissants for the modern debut of Lully's Atys.

Il canto delle dame & Caro amor

12 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 93Mb

Four of the composers are Italian women of the 17th century, a most favorable time for their gender if the notes are to be accepted. Recordings of Francesca Caccini (1587–1640), the daughter of composer Giulio Caccini, go back as far as 1969 with Max van Egmond on Telefunken; the nun Isabella Leonarda (1620–1704) was also heard in the LP era ( Fanfare 6: 4), and Barbara Strozzi (1619–after 1674) came next (7:2). Another nun, Caterina Assandra (fl. 1609–18), can be found on several CDs. The notes say nothing about the inclusion of a brief canon by Giovanni Pietro del Buono, who was noted here just recently on a recording. Eight of the dozen works are vocal, an opportunity for Maria Cristina Kiehr to continue the elegant work she has given us, first as an ensemble singer and for more than a decade as a soloist in Baroque music.

“[Kiehr] has achieved in this recital an even greater sensitivity and subtlety of expression than ever before...It is not just the performances that merit an 'IRR Outstanding' rating for this disc. The works selected and the construction of the whole programme testify to Kiehr's and Aymes's exquisite taste and superb artistic judgement.” (Record Review)

Orient-Occident 1200-1700

21 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 118Mb

This program features alternating sequences of Eastern and Western compositions, illuminating the differences and similarities between the musical styles of such cultures. Some of the Western pieces are taken from the "Cantigas de Santa Maria" cycle or have their origins in the Istampittas of Medieval Italy. Some of the Eastern compositions were taken from a manuscript entitled "The Book of the Science of Music through Letters" written by the Ottoman musicologist Dimitrie Cantemir, while others were probably carried forward from a strong oral tradition.

Orient-Occident 1200-1700 is superb, it really is. The cultural exchange that creates the unique blend of elements experienced here almost seems to fill in the blanks of the old source music. For example, here is heard a much richer Lamento di Tristano than we are used to, and if these ears were more naturally attuned to the sound of a Turkish Makam such as Uzal Sakil "Turna," perhaps the impression would be much the same. By bringing these elements -- instruments, surviving texts, and expert players -- together, we get a full menu of the flavor of traditional Mediterranean music, as it might have been known to a traveler in a time before there was conflict between these cultures on a large scale.

Anyone who loves world music should know this album, despite its presence on a classical label and the early music pedigree of much of the material. Orient-Occident 1200-1700 is more than just a historical survey or a period performance, it's a genuine work of musical humanism that is bigger than music, or musicianship itself, that attempts to reach out to warring societies with a reminder of common interests and history. As music, though, Orient-Occident 1200-1700 is endlessly fascinating, rhythmically revitalizing, and a dazzling show all the way around. While many AliaVox releases are excellent, Orient-Occident 1200-1700 is essential even on the date of its first release.
