Sadly, the majority of Bach's works for transverse flute and clavier (be that obbligato or continuo) have survived only in truncated form, in manuscripts stuffed full of mistakes – surely the result of a hasty copy job from an older work, now lost – to say nothing of doubtful attributions, meaning that flautists have little choice but to take what they're given and do the best with it they can. And that is exactly what Laura Pontecorvo is doing, ably accompanied by Rinaldo Alessandrini on the harpsichord: the truncated works have been finished, the errors corrected, the transpositions restored to their original form, with the result that we find ourselves confronted by works which are almost "new", but still very much by Bach! What links all these works is that the harpsichord part is more than a simple basso continuo – which would require that the harpsichord player improvise an accompaniment, or at least write one for themselves – but a concerting part, written by Bach himself. Incidentally, this gives us an excellent idea of how one should write one's own basso continuo: imitations galore, a great harmonic transparency, unflagging elegance. The missing parts of the Sonata BWV 1032 – the original manuscript is sadly incomplete – have been deftly filled in by Alessandrini, who manages to perfectly respect the Cantor's discourse. © SM/Qobuz

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
