Cirque du Soleil's Anniversary Collection 1984-2005 is a 12-disc retrospective of the Canadian troupe's distinctive brand of performance, involving the fantastic feats of acrobatics and athleticism, balance and contortion; the single-ring techno circus; the multicolored lights and costumes; the abstract story lines of fantasy and self-discovery; the music that fuses rock, New Age, and various world influences; and the madcap clowns that prey on their live audiences.

« Il faut à l’interprète de Zelenka le sens du show et de l’humour, l’art de la polyphonie, le tact du timing, le goût d’une démesure triomphante mais légère. Ce que l’équipe d’Adam Viktora confirme disque après disque. […] L’or se pose donc sur un volume passionnant, dont les premières mondiales (cinq des huit pièces) comptent des trésors absolus à écouter sans tarder, le Nisi Dominus ZWV 92 et le Lauda Jerusalem ZWV 104. Efficacité thématique, mobilité harmonique, diversité formelle : Zelenka porte la concision discursive, l’attention au texte, à des sommets de prouesse d’écriture.» (Diapason, mai 2017 / Sophie Roughol)

Baroque repertoire has always played a part in Natalie Dessay’s stellar career. She first started singing it in 1999, after meeting Emmanuelle Haïm during rehearsals for Alcina at the Opera de Paris - Palais Garnier. Erato presents this double CD containing a full portrait of Natalie Dessay singing baroque music, including sacred repertoire (Bach cantatas, Magnificat, Handel: Dixit Dominus) and opera (Handel: Giulio Cesare or Rameau: Les Indes Galantes) – mainly under the baton of Emmanuelle Haïm who she formed a baroque ‘double-act’ with for over a decade.

Genre: Classical | Label: Channel Classics | Catalog: CCSSA 38316

A new recording from violinist Rachel Podger is always worth attention. And before you even get to appreciating the first-class performances - faithful realizations of Bach’s Art of Fugue skillfully arranged for strings - you notice the immediate, vibrant presence of the instruments. The sound is stunning, reminiscent of the early days of digital recording, when listeners used to marvel at how realistic the sound was. Channel Classics has been doing this forever; we just may have forgotten how special it is when it’s done right.

Author of more than 120 works, Thierry Escaich is one of the leading figures in contemporary musical creation. His works, in the repertoire of such prestigious orchestras as the Orchestre de Paris, New York Philharmonic and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra of Saint Petersburg, are defended by personalities such as Valery Gergiev, Alan Gilbert, Lisa Batiashvili, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, and Olivier Latry. The winner of, amongst others, three 'Victoires de la musique' awards, his career as a creator is indissociable from his activity as an organist, having become one of the principal ambassadors of the French improvisation school throughout the world.

GRAMOPHONE AWARD 2015 WINNER (RECITAL CATEGORY). A welcome return of Carolyn Sampson and Ex Cathedra to Hyperion, performing the rich, fulsome music of the French Baroque. Their recording of love songs from Rameau’s operas (Hyperion CDA67447) was hugely acclaimed for Sampson’s stylish, fluid, seductive performances, and ten years later her artistry is even more dazzling. This album is of particular interest as rather than concentrating on one composer it showcases the works written for the premiere soprano of the day, Marie Fel. Voltaire called her his ‘adorable nightingale’. For d’Aquin, she was an enchanted being. Marie Fel was the soprano who held an entire generation spellbound at the Paris Opéra and at Louis XV’s court during one of the most glorious periods of French music. With a voice described as ‘pure, charming, silvery’ (La Borde), ‘touching and sublime’ (Grimm) and ‘always lovely, always seductive’ (d’Aquin), she inspired some of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s finest music and introduced a whole new level of virtuosity and expression into the French singing tradition. Her long, triumphant career is traced through this fascinating recording.

La période baroque s'étend du début du XVlle siècle au milieu du XVllle siècle. Réponse des artistes à l'exigence de grandeur solennelle prônée par l'Eglise catholique de l'après concile de Trente, l'art baroque, par sa monumentalité et son emphase, séduisit les grandes cours européennes. L'architecture est, sans aucun doute, parmi les arts, celui qui laissa le plus de traces dans toute l'Europe, parsemant le continent de magnifiques églises et palais baroques, à la hauteur de la puissance de ses commanditaires. …
