After the violence and destruction of the First World War, a new musical aesthetic developed in Paris. Following the publication of Jean Cocteau’s famous pamphlet Le Coq et l’Arlequin, Impressionist influences were denigrated and instead simplicity in expression was promoted. This album of flute music charts this new ‘Harlequin’ direction, from old school adherent Pierre de Bréville to foreign musicians such as Tansman and Antheil who flocked to the city. Foremost among the exponents are members of the famous Groupe des Six whose innovations challenged and changed French wind music forever. © Naxos

Formed in 1994 at the Royal College of Music in London, the Belcea Quartet already has an impressive discography, including the complete Beethoven string quartets. For this new recording, the ensemble has chosen three quartets by two iconic composers of the 20th century: Leos Janáček and György Ligeti. Fifteen years after their first recording for Zig-Zag, and after some changes in personnel, they have decided to record again the two string quartets by Janáček. The First Quartet was inspired by Leon Tolstoy’s famous novella, The Kreutzer Sonata: the four-movement work follows the narrative, including its culminating murder. The Second Quartet is subtitled Intimate Letters, in homage to Kamila Stösslova, with whom the composer had an important relationship expressed through letters, one that influenced both his life and his music. Finally, the First Quartet by Ligeti, subtitled Métamorphoses nocturnes because of its particular form. The composer described the work as a sort of theme and variations, but not with a specific theme that is then subsequently varied: rather, it is a single musical thought appearing under constantly new guises – for this reason the word ‘metamophoses’ is more appropriate than ‘variations’. © Alpha Classics

Still relatively unknown outside of Northern Europe, Rosanne Philippens is one of the best Dutch violinists of her young generation. She has an exclusive recording contract with label Channel Classics. The fifth album of this fruitful collaboration, "Insight", is also the young musician’s very first solo programme, proposing works from Biber, Bach, Enescu and Ysaÿe, as well as a few improvisations, bridging the gap between pieces. Right from the incipit of Biber’s Passacaglia, Rosanne Philippens amazes with the fleshy, woody sonority of her instrument, the brightness of her phrasings and the flow of her conceptions. This programme features a dialogue between centuries, a conversation between wildly diverse aesthetics, and must be approached like a genuine journey, without markers, a dive into the unknown. The works are fragmented; J. S. Bach’s Partita No. 2 for instance is presented in two distinct pieces, and doesn’t even include the final Chaconne − maybe in volume two? Biber’s wonderful Passacaglia (perhaps its most beautiful recorded interpretation on a violin) opens and closes the album. To go along, some fantastic pieces by Enescu, starting with the Sarabande, a clear homage to the Thomaskantor. In the very rare Airs dans le genre roumain, Rosanne Philippens attests her natural insight into Eastern European compositions – she has already recorded many of Bartók and Szymanowski’s works. An artist worth discovering in a particularly bold programme. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

The three pieces the Smetana Trio have selected for their new album came into being within the range of a mere four years, yet they represent three different musical universes. Anton Arensky’s Piano Trio evokes the atmosphere of the 19th-century salons, where music was played to delight the gathered bourgeoisie company. The work Alexander Zemlinsky created at the age of 25 marks the accession of the seeking of new sound and harmony. The one-movement trio Sergei Rachmaninoff, a piano virtuoso and composer rolled into one, wrote when hew was 19, teems with elegiac nobleness, which would remain the quintessential trait of the future globetrotter’s music. And whereas Arensky’s short life was marred by inner turmoil, the paths of Zemlinsky and Rachmaninoff were affected by outer circumstances – both of them died within a year, far away from their respective homelands, in the United States. With their typical vivacity and zest, the internationally renowned Smetana Trio perform three remarkable compositions dating from the late 19th century. © Supraphon

Alexander Borodin composed one of the most popular pieces in the romantic quartet repertoire, probably because it is a sort of love letter dedicated to Borodin's wife Ekaterina. (...) Dmitri Shostakovich composed an autobiography in music: After twenty-five years of 'inner emigration' he allowed himself once more to be personal, even if only in words to the wise. (...) And the third composer on this recording was was considered a well-kept secret of the Soviet Union for long for the western world: Moisei Vainberg, or (likewise in Russian) Mieczyslaw Weinberg.
