Fauré's Requiem, “funeral lullaby” written for enjoyment as the composer put it, has a unique place in history. It's soft, simple and modest poetry conveys moments of gentle contemplation and moving expressiveness which are entrusted to both the choir and the two soloists. With his Ensemble Aedes and the orchestra Les Siècles, Mathieu Romano is committed to render a Requiem faithful to its first performance. We hear thus the score in its original 1893 orchestration, where the organ plays a great role, and where Latin is pronounced in the French way as it used to be. The clearest articulation of the Ensemble Aedes then perfectly fits Éluard’s Figure humaine set to music by Francis Poulenc. We have never heard these sublime poems sung with such intelligibility before! Finally, the three Songs by Debussy elegantly close the album. Here again, the quality and clarity of the voices are stunning. Artistic director and founder of Ensemble Aedes has established himself as a magician of voices in a cappella scores. And voices ideally melt with the strings of Les Siècles under his baton. A 100% French cast in a 100% French music disc for a triple rediscovery. Essential! © Aparté

Label

Aparté

In 1989, Nicolas Bartholomew created Musica ISDN - which he is now detached from - a company dedicated to the recording and post-production of classical music. The company has since made hundreds of records and became, in the late 90s, one of the most prolific executive producers, serving a large number of phonographic publishers. In 1999, he founded Ambrosia - now owned by Naïve - a label he ran for ten years with enthusiasm by getting involved in the launching young talent. In 2008 he recreated the recording studio 'Little Tribeca', as well as a new label: Aparté.
