PIERRE LABRIC PLAY DEMESSIEUX

Complete Organ Works



Released in 1975 in the United States as a three L.P.s set, this masterpiece recording had not been the subject of a French record production at that time.
Here it is back home at last – good to able to illuminate his valorous performer, aged 95!

VIOLIN PHASE

Contemporary violin pieces by Diego Tosi


The idea of this ‘violon and tape’ recording project came to Diego Tosi thanks to the discovery of pieces by Steve Reich, Jesper Nordin and Georges Aperghis throughout his career with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, whereas other works had been in his repertoire for some fifteen years (such as those by Daniel Tosi and Bernard Parmegiani).
‘My motivation was not only to bring together all these pieces in order to make up an original collection on CD, but also to give our generation of violinists other sources of inspiration conducive to our instrument’ (D.T.).

ANNE RODIER SINGS DEODAT DE SEVERAC

Melodies for voice and piano


For the general public, Déodat de Séverac (1872-1921) does not necessarily represent an established figure in the pantheon of French art song. The Catalan composer remains associated more with piano literature, be it En Languedoc (1903-04) or Cerdana (1911), than with the universe of the mélodie, dominated in his generation by the tutelary shades of Gabriel Fauré or Henri Duparc. In this sense, our memory is quite unfair, since Séverac notably enriched the art song genre and repertoire. Moreover, how could it be otherwise with a creator as sensitive to the universe of sounds as to the plays of light and of words?

PIAZZOLLA - THE MUSIC OF BUENOS AIRES

Piano works and transcriptions, Christelle Abinasr


Piazzolla’s universe, in which melancholy and vital longing not only cohabit but mutually nurture each other in an exchange that is constantly revisited and renewed, could not be reduced to a narrow definition of tango. Having become, in the broadest sense, the expression of the Argentine soul in all its diversity, in the image of teeming Buenos Aires, it irrigates the pieces, so different yet so related, of Christelle Abinasr’s recital, who felicitously explores paths that are still ill-known.

YVONNE LEFÉBURE

A piano legend in a 24-CD box set!


It has already been thirty years since Yvonne Lefébure left us... Over these decades, we were very anxious to faithfully honour the memory of this woman who, never hesitated in giving her trust to the two novices that we were at the dawn of the 1970s.
In addition to a few gems collected abroad, it was, once again at the French National Audiovisual Institute – decidedly an inexhaustible source! – that I had the good fortune of discovering unsuspected treasures. You may judge by the quality and rarity of the numerous previously unreleased documents present in this set.

ERNESTO NAZARETH - RE-ISSUED

Maria José Carrasqueira, piano


Ernesto Nazareth, whose music seems to me here as perfectly understood as brilliantly interpreted, is the composer who merged the simplicity of Brazilian popular tunes with the sophisticatedly crafted sound of classical music. In his writings, Mário de Andrade always remembered Nazareth, whom he saw as being on a par with Villa-Lobos.
Maria José Carrasqueira’s choice of pieces for this CD has made this an exquisite bouquet to sample the tastiest tropical fruit and most deliciously perfumed flowers.
