The famous Ballet Royal de la Nuit, danced on by Louis XIV when he was fifteen years old, was performed at the Louvre in 1653 over seven evenings. It was a complete success: Mazarin, back from exile after the Fronde, wanted to make an impact with this ballet he had conducted himself: the goal was to impose respect for the aristocracy, impress Parisians, and spread the royal message through the ambassadors. Without a doubt, the Ballet Royal de la Nuit was one of the most striking spectacles of Louis XIV’s reign, on many levels: politically, institutionally, aesthetically, and musically. For the first time, a score had been built around four parts and a final ballet with everything working towards the same objective: staging a sunrise. The King himself danced, as well as his brother and several Dukes. Characters, scenes, decors and costumes perfectly encapsulate the Great Century. Each verse alternates between whimsical, serious, comic, burlesque, mythological, and Romanesque. As previously mentioned the objective is to impose a royal figure above all others, whilst creating a never seen proximity between the monarch and his subjects. With each part, ladies of the court, hunters, gods, bandits, cripples, soldiers, Egyptians, etc. coexist freely. The show highlights everything that goes on at night, when the good people are asleep. The message is clear: ”The Sun that follows me is the young Louis!”, and yet, after 1653, the Ballet Royal de la Nuit was never performed again. On top of this, the ballets partition – authored by several composers as it was a collective work – was lost with the exception of the first violin part, copied by Philidor a few decades later. However, the vocal music was retrieved, as well as the score. The work had to be pieced back together, a colossal task: this is a “pastiche” in the historic meaning of the word, but fantastically convincing. The excellent accompanying booklet for this wonderful recording by Sébastien Daucé and his Correspondances Ensemble cites all the sources that were used for the reconstitution. © SM/Qobuz

While Mozart was largely overlooked in the French capital, Antonio Salieri took on the reigns of the Académie Royale de Musique (Paris Opera), a fruitful collaboration that was completely broken up by the French Revolution. After the success of his work Les Danaïdes, composed for Paris in 1784, Salieri worked tirelessly with Beaumarchais, spurred on by the success and scandal of his Figaro, on a new project which would become Tarare. Beaumarchais moved himself shamelessly toward stardom, skillfully self-promoting and attending rehearsals so as to assure that the orchestra played pianissimo to emphasize the primacy of his verse during performances. Beaumarchais found that the music was too overwhelming to “embellish the lyrics”.Created one year after Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (which was relatively well-received in Vienna before triumphing in Prague), Tarare was an immense success in Paris maintaining the status of the composer’s repertoire despite the political turmoil of the time before disappearing from view around 1826, thereon ceasing to be played. Beaumarchais’ words were immediately adapted into Italian by Lorenzo Da Ponte to be performed and met with equal success in Vienna. Tarare is half lyrical tragedy, half comic opera with a hint of orientalism.After resuscitating Les Danaïdes and Les Horaces, Christophe Rousset finished off his series of recordings dedicated to Salieri’s French operas for the Parisian public. Tarare is very much of its time, that of the Lumières, and used the power of art to challenge despotism in all its forms. Thanks to Christophe Rousset’s excellent delivery and lively direction, this recording enables one to judge the merits of the composition and the chasm that separates an honest and talented musician from a solitary and impassioned one like Mozart. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Invaluable sound documents from one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. The third and final volume of the Berlin radio recordings by Cuban-born American pianist Jorge Bolet on audite presents repertoire novelties. With the exception of the Fledermaus paraphrase, all recordings are released for the first time. Once again, Bolet's performances document his universality and unceasing inquisitiveness, as well as his phenomenal musicianship and ability to adapt his virtuosity to diverse works. These recordings are therefore invaluable documents of a musician who today is justly considered one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. This selection comprises works of Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Dello Joio, Franck, Godowsky, Grieg, Liszt and Schumann. Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto did not form part of Bolet's regular repertoire: it is the only live recording on this edition. Further highlights include Schumann's Third Piano Sonata as well as major works by Chopin, such as the complete Op. 25 Études, in Bolet's masterful, lyrical interpretations. As an "encore", Bolet plays Godowsky's Concert Paraphrase of Strauss' Die Fledermaus. © Audite

After forays to Spain and France, the Cheng2 Duo ventures to Russia for their third audite album. The "Süddeutsche Zeitung" described Bryan and Silvie Cheng's last CD, dedicated to Spanish music, as an "event of austere and severe, but also dreamy beauty", and praised the siblings' interpretation for "finding the correct idiom which manages to raise the temperature". Their new double album centres on the three great sonatas for cello and piano by Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninov and Sergei Prokofiev. The Cheng2 Duo contrasts these with a series of shorter pieces by Anton Arensky, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Alexander Glazunov. This comprehensive programme represents a short history of Russian cello music which began with the foundation of the great music conservatoires in Saint Petersburg and Moscow in the middle of the nineteenth century. Cellist Bryan Cheng is hailed internationally for his "absolutely astonishing" (La Presse, Montréal) command of the cello, and "abundant facility, innate musicality, and sense of joy" (New York Concert Review). He made his solo debut at age 10 with the Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal, his Carnegie Hall recital debut at 14, and most recently, his Elbphilharmonie solo debut with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and conductor Joshua Weilerstein in 2018. Lauded for her "extraordinarily varied palette" (WholeNote Magazine) and "purely magical" playing (New York Concert Review), pianist Silvie Cheng illuminates musical works with her exquisite touch at the keyboard. Since her Carnegie Hall solo debut in 2011, she has performed as both soloist and collaborative pianist across the globe. As guest soloist with orchestra, Silvie most recently made her debut with the New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra in 2018 and will debut with Symphony Nova Scotia in the 2019-20 season. © Audite
