Raphaël Pichon

Operafragmenten - Verschenen op 23 februari 2018 | harmonia mundi

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 4F de Télérama - Gramophone Editor's Choice - Diamant d'Opéra - Choc de Classica - 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
With his ensemble Pygmalion, Raphaël Pichon has written the listing for this album in the form of a "pastiche" of a Mass for the Dead, a Requiem both sacred and profane. While it is a long way from having all the defining traits, it does possess all the outlines: Introit, Kyrie, Gradual, Sequence, Offertory, In Paradisum... The idea came about after a recent discovery, in the Bibliothèque Nationale of an anonymous requiem mass from the 18th century, in which the writer constructed a "parody" based on musical extracts from Castor and Pollux and the Fêtes de Paphos by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Note that the term "parody" doesn't necessarily imply satire or mockery: it refers to the practice of taking up older music and setting new words to it. This fusion of sacred music (the mass) and profane music (lyrical tragedy), a common practice during the Enlightenment, was a procedure that Pichon wanted to take up. In French society at the time, when Catholicism was the norm, where the political system was monarchical rule by divine right, the representation of ancient pagan Hell on theatrical stages seemed to betray a fascination in the beliefs of the ancients. And so this programme melds together pagan fable with a Christian imaginary, where Hell takes on different faces. It is the place of unjust and eternal torment, a place of privation where a couple is separated, one half kept in Hades. But, in the lyrical tragedy, Hell is also a place of perdition: obscure forces unleashed in Sabbath rites, a Satanic vision which unearths the darkest depths of the human soul... Stéphane Degout is the author of this tragedy, bringing together such varied characters as Phaedra, Pluto, and the Parcae. The composers whose music is put to use are Rameau and Gluck, with a single borrowing from Rebel: it would have been a shame not to mention his singular Chaos (taken from Éléments), which starts with a dissonant chord containing the seven notes of the scale of D minor. © SM/Qobuz

Stella di Napoli

Joyce DiDonato

Klassiek - Verschenen op 29 augustus 2014 | Erato - Warner Classics

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen Diapason d'or de l'année - Diapason d'or - Gramophone Editor's Choice - Diamant d'Opéra - Choc de Classica - Uitzonderlijke Geluidsopnamen
American mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato has released several albums of lesser-known operatic repertory without a hint of the musty museum in sight. Her personality seems especially well-suited to this collection of arias from Naples in the early 19th century, a category that includes the young Rossini. DiDonato offers the superb Riedi al soglio from Zelmira (track 4), one of the underrated Rossini showpieces, and there is a pair of arias each from Donizetti and Bellini. The rest of the program is devoted to composers lesser-known (Pacini, Mercadante) or totally obscure (Michele Carafa, Carlo Valentini). The last named of these is represented by an aria from an opera about a sleepwalker called Il sonnambulo, and DiDonato's method involves substituting a new take for a familiar one on a particular theme. This is effective, and she makes the case for much of this material. Most important of all, she sounds great, and she's having fun. DiDonato has been a rising star among the opera cognoscenti for some years now, but it is likely that this release, with the combined marketing muscle of Erato and Warner Classics behind it, will help her become a major star. © TiVo

St. Petersburg

Cecilia Bartoli

Operafragmenten - Verschenen op 1 januari 2013 | Decca Music Group Ltd.

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - Gramophone Editor's Choice - Diamant d'Opéra
Cecilia Bartoli neemt ons mee op een reis van Italië naar Rusland en vertelt over de ontwikkeling van de opera in Sint Petersburg. Door het initiatief nemen van 3 invloedrijke Tsarina's, Anna I, Elisabeth I (Elisabeth Petrovna, dochter van Peter de Grote) en Catharina II (Sophia Augusta Frederika van Anhalt-Zerbst ), werd de muziekwereld in Rusland nieuw leven ingeblazen. Naast het regelen van muzikanten, wisten de Tsarina's ook meerdere Italiaanse componisten aan te trekken als Franceso Araia, gevolgd door Manfredini en Cimarosa. In dit album brengt Bartoli verborgen schatten aan het licht van vergeten componisten als Hermann Friedrich Raupach, die van oorsprong hofklavecinist was en componist werd na het ontslag van Araia. Dankzij de archieven van het Mariinskitheater kon Cecilia Bartoli deze selectie operafragmenten samenstellen, waarvan een groot deel niet eerder was gepubliceerd.
