Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions Diapason d'or
Anna Danilevskaia and her acolytes plunge us into the heart of Florence in 1350. It is said that on a hot morning of the year 1389, in a Florentine garden, Francesco degli Organi, famous organetto virtuoso, accepted a bet: he had to silence the birds by the beauty of his organ playing. Also a composer, this multi-instrumentalist was acclaimed throughout the city of Florence not only for his musical prowess but also for his rhetoric skils and philosophical views. A perfect representative of incipient humanism, better known today as Francesco Landini, together with fellow composers such as Lorenzo da Firenze, Andrea Stefani and Giovanni da Firenze, was to bring the music of their time to its apogee. A bewitching vocal and instrumental journey during which you can discover or rediscover the music of these great Florentine masters of he Middle Ages. © Ambronay Editions

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions Diapason découverte
Recorded at the Royal Opera of Versailles, this "pastorale héroïque" is a co-production of the Festival d’Ambronay, which has released it on its own label. Inspired by Lully's Acis and Galatea of ten years earlier, André-Cardinal Destouches composed Issé to mark the prince's wedding celebrations at Trianon. The work met with great success right away and was performed several times at Versailles, right up to the wedding celebrations of the future king Charles X, before it went on to conquer the Paris Opéra. Issé's lighthearted plot is full of the obligatory amorous reversals and twists: Apollo, disguised as the shepherd Philémon, is assiduously pursuing the nymph Issé. The work delighted the King, who had it staged again, with Madame de Pompadour reprising the role of the nymph, in 1749. "The version upon which this record is based was published in 1724, by Jean- Baptiste Christophe Ballard. This revision truly perfected the work: it improved whole sections and added some remarkable pages. Houdar de La Motte re-wrote several lines, while Destouches undertook a wide-ranging re-working of the rhythm and the instrumental setting of the great arias, in such a way that the dramatic material remained recognisable", François Escande says. Closely linked to the needs of the French Court, this pastorale is probably Destouches's masterpiece, quite a feat if you consider that this was his first lyrical work. It links the charm and refined sensibilities of the 17th Century with the eloquent, brilliant and expressive spirit that the following century would love so passionately. Conducted by Louis-Noël Bestion de Camboulas, this version sparkles with intelligence thanks to a virtuoso orchestra (Les Surprises) and a team of larger- than-life singers who fit their roles perfectly. © François Hudry/Qobuz
