Gaetano Donizetti’s Ange de Nisida has had a strange history. It is never included in the composer’s list of operas for a very simple reason: Escaping Italian censorship, Gaetano Donizetti decided to have it performed in French in Paris (libretto by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz). Rehearsals began in 1840, but stopped when the company went bankrupt. Donizetti ended up using some of this work in La Favorite, similar to the way Rossini used Il Viaggio a Reims in Le Comte Ory.Sir Mark Elder’s record is therefore a world premiere. The maestro is surrounded by outstanding soloists in this recording made in July 2018 at Covent Garden in London. The concert was made in collaboration with the label Opera Rara, dedicated to opera premieres. The opera’s libretto had never been printed before. At the French National Library, the piece required major archival research using three different manuscripts for it to be to put together. Candida Mantica worked as an archeologist carefully exploring and comparing numerous versions including the composer’s own manuscript. The scenes that were discovered were not in the right order and often not fully orchestrated.Though it was written for France and in French, the opera is a 100% Italian in its style. It shines as a wonderful discovery, even if it never changes our idea of Donizetti. Now that the record is out, we are looking forward to its rendition on stage. The plot takes place in the 15th century on a desert island, the way opera lovers liked at that time. The king of Naples is keeping his mistress a prisoner when a young and fiery tenor falls in love with her. The story goes through many twists, featuring the pope, between comedy and tragedy before its tragic ending for poor Sylvia, who dies, creating one more female martyr in the history of opera. © François Hudry/Qobuz

A brainchild of two veterans of the Philips label – including Tom Deacon, the instigator of the phenomenal "The Great Pianists of the 20th Century" in the 1990s – this re-release of the recordings of the complete works of Debussy played by Hans Henkemans for the Dutch label from 1951 to 1957 will remain one of the most beautiful celebrations marking this centenary year. These historic recordings, which have yet to be released as a single collection, were made at about the same time as the recordings by Marcelle Meyer (Les Discophiles Français), Albert Ferber (Ducretet-Thomson), Walter Gieseking (His Master's Voice), Menahem Pressler (MGM Records) and Reine Gianoli (Westminster): but they stand out from their contemporaries for their concern for textual precision and above all a complete absence of impressionism. The composer Hans Henkeman, born in 1913 and a major figure in the musical life of the Netherlands from the 1930s to the 1960s, was mainly interested in the range of the French composer's rhythmic vocabulary. Very often, and in particular in modern cycles (Estampes, Images, Children's Corner), the rhythm seems to overshadow the purely harmonic aspect, even if Hans Henkemans' naturally clear and limpid piano playing style reproduces these elements of Debussy's musical world without adulteration. Reflets dans l’eau stuns with its rapid tempo, its somewhat pithy expressiveness, but also with its fiery surges, its powerful accents in the fortissimo passages: there is also a freedom, a great broadness, in Henkemans' piano, which lends an almost austere aspect to the music's overall rhythmic stature. Moreover, Cloches à travers les feuilles, the greatest and also the most difficult of the Images pour piano, surprises the listener as much for its variations at a fulgurating tempo as for the great clarity of its articulation. But for many, the best of Henkemans' treasury of Debussy remains the 12 Etudes, where, naturally, his strict and utterly original playing style is perfectly matched to this mature, extreme cycle. Few musicians have brought such speed to Pour les degrés chromatiques or such a rage to Pour les agréments. Stunning! As Tom Deacon quite rightly puts it in the liner notes, "these interpretations can and should be seen as the forerunners of the modern approach to Debussy represented by the late Charles Rosen, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, and even the young Michel Béroff as well as by the conductor Pierre Boulez, all of whom worked to strip the carbuncles from Debussy's music that are simply the result of the normal wear and tear of successive generations of mis(or should I say over-)interpretations. This re-release should really set the record straight. © PYL/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Girolamo Frescobaldi is one of the most extraordinary figures in the history of music for harpsichord and organ, and had an enormous influence on other composers up until Bach. His brilliant toccatas reveal an inner world that fascinates today's listener. Frescobaldi's inspiration was born at the court of Ferrara and reached maturity in Rome, where the composer found himself among the major artists of the time who were actively creating a new artistic language. This box set includes the four collections by Frescobaldi which, due to their exceptional innovative strength, have left the greatest mark on the history of music for the keyboard. A pupil of Leonhardt and Tagliavini, Francesco Cera is today recognized as one of the leading specialists in Frescobaldi, whose music he has helped to disseminate through concerts and master classes in Europe and the United States. Part of the music was recorded in the excellent acoustics of the Sala della Vigna in the Delizia di Belriguardo, the summer residence of the Este dukes, where the very young Frescobaldi was often present. Cera has chosen nine priceless instruments, including the Guglielmi organ of 1615 in the church of Santa Maria in Vallicella in Rome, and a copy of the harpsichord by Nicolò Albana, Naples 1584. The art historian Denis Grenier has been entrusted with the task of illustrating seven works of art that testify to the link between the music of Frescobaldi and the art in Rome of his time. © Arcana
