Booklet
In contrast to the somewhat prude 19th century, the 18th was filled with fanatic eroticism, as seen in some of Mozart’s letters as well as this Vasta, Reine de Bordélie (Queen of Brothelia) and its explicit characters: Vit-Molet, Fout-six-coups, Vit-en-l’air, Tetasse and Couille-au-cul (more or less translated as Limp-dick, Fucked-six-times, Hard-dick, Sucker and Balls-in-arse (to have guts)…).This erotic-lyrical tragedy (with more emphasis on the first term as the second is all but non-existent) is virtually pornographic. Led by Iakovos Pappas at the head of his Almazis ensemble, we find the work of Alexis Piron, born in Dijon in 1689 (the same town where Jean-Philippe Rameau was born). Succumbing to Priapus’ charm, the dramatist quickly forgot his Jesuit studies and began writing epigrams through which his caustic and mystical spirit came to life. A writer of rather salacious comic-operas, but also comedies and even tragedies, he died reclusive and senile at the age of 84 years old, a venerable age for the time. He wrote his own epitaph: “Here lies Piron, who was nothing, not even an academic.”Lechery and libertinism run rife in the kingdom of Bordélie, with an array of risqué situations where the torrid eroticism and incredibly explicit writing are not for the faint of heart…. But what is explicit, is made up for in spirit and pleasure. Voilà, debauched 18th century France on a platter for our great pleasure. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Booklet
Magnificent "premieres" are featured in this succulent release. First with the melodies of Henri Tomasi. These are not decorative pieces; Tomasi expresses innermost suffering through complex musical phrases, silences, contrasts, chromatics, stunning vocal flights (Printemps), and changing tempos (Kawai). The overwhelming sincerity sometimes leaves the voice laid bare (Attente). The conventional festival ending does not put an end to woman’s sorrow. Chant de la fee des îles (Song of the Fairy of the Iles), after a text by J.L. Baghio, employs both traditional forms (waltzes) and wide-ranging melodies and dissonant harmonies. Composed in 1944 during the Liberation, the piece expresses the social expectations of the period. It heralds the brilliant works of the 1960s. As for this great cycle of the young composer Lionel Ginoux, “music flows from a magnicent volcano. In “Un Braisier d’etoiles” there is a voice rising from the red lava and glittering chords. The musical setting Alain Borne’s compelling verses is distinctive, free, radiant, sometimes lunar, and always lyrical. Pure melody, a genuine diamond.” (Regis Campo, July 2016)
