Hi-Res Booklet
Mezzo-soprano Eva Zaïcik, who has signed up with Alpha for several recordings, is one of the most prominent vocal artists of her generation. She was chosen as ‘Révélation lyrique’ at the Victoires de la Musique Classique 2018, and elected the same year a Laureate of the prestigious Queen Elizabeth of Belgium Competition. She has participated in the “Jardin des Voix” of les Arts Florissants under William Christie, also regularly collaborates with Le Poème Harmonique and Vincent Dumestre – but her constant accompanist is the harpsichordist Justin Taylor. Together with two other musician graduates, the violinists Théotime Langlois de Swarte, Sophie de Bardonnèche and the gamba player Louise Pierrard, they have founded Le Consort, to explore both sacred and secular works by composers such as Charpentier, Campra and Clérambault. For this recording they are joined by the flautist Anna Besson and gamba player Lucile Boulanger, both well-known to the Alpha label, and Thibault Roussel (theorbo). This recording is devoted to the Cantatas of Lefebvre, Montéclair, Clérambault and Courbois, more than half of which have never previously been recorded. The cantata inspired non-operatic composers to play out the fashionable narratives of the day on a reduced scale, and in the intimate surroundings of the salons. It is a subtle genre and a vivid depiction of the characters. © Outhere Music

Hi-Res
The first vinyl release from Dolphin Midwives, the solo project of Portland-based artist Sage Fisher, is a delicate yet splintered album of sparkling, multi-tracked harps and ethereal vocals. Fisher states that the album is "about finding beauty and acceptance in the fractured, broken and vulnerable places," and her usage of electronic effects seems very hands-on, as she's constantly twisting and warping the sounds of her voice and instruments. It's much busier and glitchier than something by Mary Lattimore, to name another harpist who augments her playing with looping pedals and other effects. Tracks such as "Jungespell" end up being far more intense than one might expect, applying rapid pitch-shifting and transforming voices and harp pluckings into insectoid tones. "Flux" is two minutes of flanged shuddering and startling interjections of what sounds like a buzzing alarm. The two "Temple" pieces are more meditative, but even these seem a bit messy, layering sounds in waves until they trip over themselves. "Mirror" is perhaps the album's most immediately striking tune, beginning with a cooing vocal melody that could've appeared on a '60s psych-folk record, but Fisher's singing constantly interrupts itself in a series of erratic blips. "Labyrinth I" is a series of glitched-out crystalline notes frozen in time. "Satya Yuga" is a bit more relaxing and resonant, focusing on very intimate-sounding harp playing; the effects are present but less intrusive, adding depth without obscuring anything. Fisher is unafraid to take her music down unexpected paths, and her adventurousness keeps Liminal Garden spontaneous and vibrant. ~ Paul Simpson
