The solo cantata repertory of northern Germany in the late seventeenth century took a long time to reach the realm of recordings, and now that it has it is regularly yielding new treasures. Various works by Dietrich Buxtehude have been recorded; here he is represented by a single work and is joined by his student Nikolaus Bruhns and his father-in-law, Franz Tunder. The pieces evolved in the direction of simplicity and intensity, under the influence of the religious ideas collectively known as Pietism. Italian aria styles with their regular structure and smooth melodies made their way across Germany during this period, only to be met by German poetry and its assortment of rules and rhetorical figures. The collision resulted in a level of creative tension that generated deeply felt works in a region devastated by war. The flavor of the music is given right out of the blocks in the title track, Bruhns' De Profundis (track 1), with its spectacular rising melisma at the words "De profundis clamavit" (Out of the depths I have cried). The booklet identifies some of the rhetorical figures found in the music throughout; their effect is not to restrict the music but to intensify it. Swiss-born bass Stephan MacLeod delivers power on a small musical scale, and the Ricercar Consort, featuring director François Fernandez on the violino piccolo, brings warmth and intimacy on historical instruments. This music was ignored perhaps because it does not lead directly to Bach, but it has a great deal to tell the listener about German Protestantism and its musical impulses. A superb disc of solo sacred music. Notes are in French, English, and German.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.

Paul Van Nevel, the ancient music craftsman

The saviour of lost causes from the Renaissance? That’s him! The insatiable digger, tirelessly tracking down savant polyphonies from the Early Middle Ages in European libraries? Him again! The recording of the first opera ever written by a woman (Francesca Caccini)? That’s him still, Paul Van Nevel, musicologist, cigar enthusiast, art historian, and mainly, music director of the Huelgas Ensemble since 1970. Let’s take an eager look at the Van-Nevelian music universe.

The baroque echoes of Nuria Rial

Spanish soprano Nuria Rial and Swiss flautist Maurice Steger teamed up with the prestigious Basel Kammerorchester to record Baroque Twitter, a record that takes in works from the 18th century by composers as important as Vivaldi, Albinioni or Scarlatti. It's one more milestone in an already-long career for the Catalan singer, who is today one of the most vital figures in the world of historical music.
