About

The four Nations by François Couperin (also known as "Couperin the Great") consist of France, Spain, the Empire and Piedmont (Italy, therefore), though it would be rather futile to look for any truly national characteristics in each of the movements of these four suites. And all the more so due to the fact that many of the pieces had already been composed well before the collection’s publication in 1726, and they were simply renamed... Yes, throughout the thirty-six movements of the work we do hear the French style on the one hand and the more Italianising style on the other, but the many interpolations make it, in fact, a kind of mixed European collection. At most, Spain is entitled to a few rare and truly Iberian turns of phrase, even though they are only visible under a microscope. Christophe Rousset and his musical ensemble Les Talens Lyriques approach these "trios" with joy and respect, knowing that the term "trio" does not necessarily imply three musicians; in fact, the melodic parts are entrusted to two oboes, two flutes and two violins, both together and alternately, while the continuo is played by the bassoon, harpsichord, gamba and theorbo, again either together or in various combinations depending on the musical texture. In this way, the thirty-six movements demonstrate the immense musical richness of these various nations, with all the diversity and contrasts that Couperin has assigned to them. © SM/Qobuz

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.
