Le Concert Spirituel, named for the concert series (not exclusively spiritual) that was held on the second floor of the Tuileries in the 18th century until all hell broke loose, has specialized in French Baroque music. The group was founded in 1987 by leader Hervé Niquet, who was playing in William Christie's pioneering group Les Arts Florissants and heard a conductor, presumably not Christie, disparage the French repertory. Resolved to do better, he founded a group of his own. That nugget comes from the notes to this release, which were penned by Niquet himself and which provide a real sense of the enthusiasm that has attended Le Concert Spirituel since its beginnings. The album is a collection marking the group's 25th anniversary, and it could serve as an admirable introduction to the ensemble's work, and indeed to the French Baroque in general as well as related music in other countries and times. Consider the five divisions of the program, which bespeak an effort to come to terms with the music in its own context: "Musique religieuse," "Démesure" (Excess), Jardin Secret (Secret Garden), Opéras, and "Mes petits bijoux préférés," which means My Favorite Little Jewels and consists of Niquet's own picks. The "Démesure" group is not only a classification French listeners of the time would have recognized, and perhaps smiled at, but also indicates a chief value of this collection: like all the best anthologies, it presents the group as a living, evolving being and brings the listener something new. Niquet has researched large, "excessive" works such as the 60-voice Missa sopra Ecco si beato giorno of Alessandro Striggio (excerpted on CD 1, tracks 13 and 14), and those on that section of the program represent the latest in his series of musical adventures, delightfully unaffected by minimalist trends in Baroque performance. All the music was recorded between 1999 and 2011 for the Glossa label, and it has a sonic unity despite the large generic variety on display. Recommended for all levels of familiarity with the French Baroque.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.
