French Baroque ensemble La Rêveuse's first project for harmonia mundi (having hopped over from Mirare) is a celebration of the London's music scene during the first two decades of the eighteenth century – a time when dwindling royal patronage had sparked off a new cultural economy based on public concerts and the widespread amateur music-making these inspired, establishing the city as an international epicentre for cultural vibrancy and innovation, and thus the obvious destination for any musician wanting to make their fortune. Especially the Italians, off the back of the British mania for Corelli's Opus 6 collection of concerti grossi.

Of course, much as that premise has all the potential for a sparkling recording, it's still eminently possible to end up with something sounding no different to any other Baroque concerto programme, so it's a joy to discover that not only does La Rêveuse's offering genuinely fizz, but also that it sounds genuinely distinctive; the former quality being down to their playing's combination of lucid-textured joyous energy and supple technical elegance (plus some wonderfully immediate and luminous engineering), and the latter thanks to them having mostly eschewed the Italian violin concertos everyone usually reaches for in favour of concertos for one of multiple recorders, plus repertoire for viola da gamba – an instrument which had largely had its day on the professional scene by this point, but which was still enthusiastically played by amateurs.

Consequently their curtain-raiser is William Babell's magnificent Concerto II Op. 3 for sixth flute (a bright-sounding Baroque recorder sitting closest in size and range to the standard soprano/descent), which would have been played in theatres during opera intervals. Here it sounds nothing less than ravishing, luminous-toned duetting violins poetically setting the scene before Sébastien Marq's recorder soars in gracefully over the top to begin its songful chirruping.

Two further recorder-shaped highlights come from the pen of Johann Christian Schickhardt. First chamber music in the form of a sprightly performance of his reworking of Corelli Op. 6 movements into a trio for two alto recorders and continuo, aimed at the amateur musician market; then his own Concerto II Op. 19 for two recorders and two traverso flutes, played here with sublime tones and blending.

La Rêveuse then take the genius decision to end not with another operatic shout, but instead with opera music recast for home music making: Haymarket Theatre bassoonist Pietro Chaboud's intimate bass viol and continuo arrangement of Nicola Francesco Haym's soulful aria, “Thus with thirst my souls expiring”, delectably brought off here by ensemble directors Florence Bolton on viol and Benjamin Perrot on theorbo. Highly recommended. © Charlotte Gardner/Qobuz

Nils Frahm: il pianoforte come non lo avete mai sentito suonare

Salutato dai critici di musica classica come dagli amanti di esperimenti elettronici, il talento di Nils Frahm ha messo d’accordo tutti negli ultimi dieci anni. Che usi un organo da chiesa o un sintetizzatore dotato di pedali per effetti, il pianista tedesco guarda sempre avanti. Impossibile non restarne affascinati.

Sofia Coppola on air

Per il suo ultimo film, L’inganno, Sofia Coppola si rivolge nuovamente a Thomas Mars, cantante del gruppo francese Phoenix, un collaboratore abituale della regista. L’occasione ideale per passare in rassegna alcuni grandi momenti musicali della filmografia della figlia di Francis, e in particolare la mitica colonna sonora del Giardino delle vergini suicide, firmata dai versagliesi Air.

Il paradosso di studio di Esa-Pekka Salonen

Di passaggio in Francia in quest’estate del 2018, agl’Incontri musicali di Evian, dove dirigeva l’Orchestra Sinfonica de La Grange au Lac, il finlandese Esa-Pekka Salonen, direttore d’orchestra acclamato e compositore prolifico con più di 60 dischi, rievoca il suo modo di accostarsi al lavoro di studio, tanto specifico della musica classica.
