Lucien Durosoir's music is like nothing you have ever heard before. As exemplified in this revelatory Alpha disc of his three string quartets, Durosoir's music is tonal in orientation but often so chromatic it becomes functionally atonal, contrapuntal in texture with lines so free they become virtually independent, and passionate in expression with emotions so powerful they would overwhelm the music if not for the composer's complete control of his materials. Born in 1878, Durosoir had a career as first-rank violinist before the Great War took the 36 year old into the trenches. After surviving the war, Durosoir turned to composition with a passion and produced more than two dozen works in less than 20 years. Neglected by the French musical establishment during the composer's lifetime and ignored after his death in 1955, Durosoir's music has only been rediscovered due to the energetic advocacy of his son and daughter-in-law, and this is only the second disc entirely devoted to his works. Played with amazing confidence and technical assurance by the Quatuor Diotima and recorded in clear, close sound by Alpha, this disc deserves to be heard by everyone who enjoys European chamber music written between the wars.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
