Although best remembered for his devotion to the core Austro-Germanic repertoire, Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan did flirt with the English repertoire in the '50s and early '60s.

From 1980 comes this lovely prog inspired album from Pierpaolo Bibbo. "Diapason" was a very good and unique symphonic album during a period that was considered less than stellar among most progressive rock fans. It was recorded during 1979 and released on La Strega Records in 1980. Bibbo composed everything and co-produced the album with Marcello Mazzella. He played guitars and bass, handled vocals, and played synths showing a high level of all-around competence. Other musicians provided additional keyboards, drums, violin, and flute giving the album a reasonable "band" feel. Like other symphonic releases of this period "Diapason" doesn't outwardly break a lot of new ground but Bibbo's unique talents and interesting approach give this work a fresh feel…

Label: Mirare | Release Year: 2016

Particularly inspired, the disc opens with a simple and collected view of the Opus 38 of Brahms: it reminds us of the legendary one of Starker and Sebok, that's all saying. The dialogue of the two interpreters transpires intimacy, fusional spontaneity. An extremely distinct soundtrack makes all the more disturbing the flow of moods and ideas that unites the keyboard of Laloum unceasingly to the dreamy bow of Julien-Laferrière. Totally masters of their emotions, which only sound more sincere, the two young interpreters confirm the maturity that earned them a Diapason d'or at Brahms, shared with the clarinettist Raphael Severe.

Just over two months after the release, the CD is doing particularly well both in stores and in the press: the "chouchou"of the audience delivers a "true delight" and gets awarded a Diapason d'Or.

Tremendous fun!, Scintillating!, wrote the journalists of Diapason and Classica about the most recent recording of Olivier Fortin and his ensemble, devoted to the rarely heard Romanus Weichlein, which received every honour from the French musical press (Diapason dOr, Choc de Classica, FFFF Télérama). This year, the Canadian harpsichordist and his loyal band have decided to record Telemann, the 250th anniversary of whose death will be commemorated in 2017. Two anonymous musicians from the city of Hamburg wrote in 1728 that Handel [composes] music but Telemann composes music and affects.
