The fact that Tomás Luis de Victoria was born in 1548, 27 years after Josquin des Prez’s death, must not lead the listener to assume this album presents “disparate” works of a composer from the early Renaissance on the one hand and of a second composer from the late Renaissance on the other. In those times, composers’ works were passed around – often as tablatures for lute and vihuela music – and most importantly, each interpreted them according to their own ideas (particularly because tablatures were unobtrusive regarding rhythms), their instrument’s abilities, and depending on whether they performed alone or in support of a singer… This CD offers a personal interpretation of the works of Victoria and Josquin, as imagined by the voices of singers John Potter and Anna Maria Friman, as well as the vihuelas of Ariel Abramovich, Lee Santana and Jacob Heringman. In order to better highlight the vividness of language in the Renaissance, the latter offers us half a dozen small instrumental “Preludes” scattered across the album, that he improvised in the style of the time, using snippets, accents, suggestions, turns as they were then used. Here is an excellent overhaul of the very concept of “historical authenticity”, as it always remains closely related to the time, instruments, instrumentalists, and the thousands of layers of possible interpretations of Renaissance music. © SM/Qobuz

Album Description

The fact that Tomás Luis de Victoria was born in 1548, 27 years after Josquin des Prez’s death, must not lead the listener to assume this album presents “disparate” works of a composer from the early Renaissance on the one hand and of a second composer from the late Renaissance on the other. In those times, composers’ works were passed around – often as tablatures for lute and vihuela music – and most importantly, each interpreted them according to their own ideas (particularly because tablatures were unobtrusive regarding rhythms), their instrument’s abilities, and depending on whether they performed alone or in support of a singer… This CD offers a personal interpretation of the works of Victoria and Josquin, as imagined by the voices of singers John Potter and Anna Maria Friman, as well as the vihuelas of Ariel Abramovich, Lee Santana and Jacob Heringman. In order to better highlight the vividness of language in the Renaissance, the latter offers us half a dozen small instrumental “Preludes” scattered across the album, that he improvised in the style of the time, using snippets, accents, suggestions, turns as they were then used. Here is an excellent overhaul of the very concept of “historical authenticity”, as it always remains closely related to the time, instruments, instrumentalists, and the thousands of layers of possible interpretations of Renaissance music. © SM/Qobuz

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.

Sofia Coppola on Air

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.
