The masterpiece of French opera – Gounod’s ‘Faust‘ – still has surprises in store for us. Originally conceived in the spirit of opéra-comique, the 1859 score alternated between spoken dialogue and music, intermingling witty comedy and Romantic pathos. It is that ‘first Faust’ that the Palazzetto Bru Zane reveals in this recording, and particularly the many numbers that were subsequently deleted or altered.

Colin Davis' Berlioz has in general tended to draw some rave reviews from the critics, and while I am not always in agreement with them, I have to admit that this is probably the best version of the sprawling and flawed but ultimately rather rewarding work available. His abilities to draw various color nuances - darker ones, in particular - from the orchestra, especially the wind section, are marvelous. The soloists are in general good, too, and overall this urgent reading should warrant a safe recommendation.

Contemporary of Claude Debussy, close friend of Maurice Maeterlinck, the composer Eugène Samuel-Holeman (1863-1942) takes us to the heart of the end-of-the-century in Belgium, between symbolism and modernism. La jeune fille à la fenêtre (1904) is a monodrama sung on a text by the writer Camille Lemonnier, major figure of the Belgian letters. Created and defended for ten years by the famous mezzo Jane Bathori, this "lyrical prose" astonishing as its instrumentation as its innovative harmonies, is a witness of the emancipation of the musical language at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Alberic Magnard became a French national hero when he died defending his home at the outbreak of the First World War and, although he wrote relatively little, his catalogue is full of expansive and beautifully crafted music. Magnard was a symphonist at heart, and with its evocations of landscape and expressive lyricism his Third Symphony was admired by Paul Dukas for its ‘perfect clarity’ and as an ‘all too rare creation.’ The luminous Fourth Symphony is one of Magnard’s last surviving works- a masterpiece that successfully synthesizes Wagnerian high drama with Classical transparency.

With Penthesilea, his seventh opera, Pascal Dusapin has written a wild and powerful masterpiece – the story of a terrible love that conveys a concern to the World. The composer achieves between song and breath a passionate art of vocality. His music, intense and refined, creates a subtly coloured enigmatic atmosphere in the dark and barbarous war between Achilles and Penthesilea.

With Cupid’s assistance, the sculptor Pygmalion brings his beloved creation to life. This recording treats us to two versions of the celebrated story. Jean-Philippe Rameau’s familiar one-act opera Pigmalion, in which the deus ex machina fulfils Pygmalion’s desires, is followed by Georg Benda’s little-known gem of the same name: a gripping monodrama for spoken voice and orchestra in which we can imagine the sculptor undergoing an inner conflict between desire and reality. Rising star Korneel Bernolet conducts his Apotheosis Orchestra and a group of young vocal partners: the Canadian haute-contre Philippe Gagné sings the passionate Pigmalion in Rameau’s opéra-ballet, alongside Lieselot De Wilde as his wife Céphise and Caroline Weynants as the divine Amour.

This hugely successful opera, heard and admired by Mozart during his sojourn in France, began a new kind of French musical drama. Glorious orchestral colours and wickedly witty ensemble pieces reveal striking musical and dramatic ideas, embracing the daring new ideals of the Enlightenment, while laying bare the innermost thoughts and feelings of the characters in a way that would inspire Mozart’s partnership with his librettist da Ponte. Mistaken identity, mysterious strangers, true love, duels and a happy ending!

La fantastique histoire de Johnny Hallyday en six compilations, telle a été l'heureuse initiative prise par Universal. Six albums - et que de grandes chansons (choisies, dit-on, par l'artiste en personne). En dix-huit titres, ce dernier volume couvre les années 1985/1997. Loin de s'essouffler, la carrière de Johnny a alors connu une nouvelle dynamique grâce à des compositeurs de la trempe de Michel Berger ("Quelque chose de Tennessee") et de Jean-Jacques Goldman ("J'la croise tous les matins"). "L'Envie" et une version absolument imparable de "Que je t'aime" constituent également deux moments forts de cette superbe anthologie. Un album à l'intensité toute rock'n'roll !

French composer and former professor at Columbia University Tristan Murail is widely regarded as one of the icons of contemporary music. The Ensemble Cairn presents its recording of pieces from Murail’s Portulan cycle which were composed between 1998 and 2011 and describe collection of landmarks, charting the reference points of the composer’s life and career: places he has lived, beloved pieces of music, and books and stories important to his artistic development – “a sort of autobiography through metaphors” (Murail). Cairn Ensemble was founded in 1998. Jérôme Combier is its artistic director, and Guillaume Bourgogne its musical director. Cairn Ensemble's ambition is to create high-quality contemporary music concerts. Some of Cairn's concerts confront other art forms, such as the plastic arts, photography and video, as well as other types of music such as jazz, improvisation and traditional music. The Cairn Ensemble strives to be a group with conductor as well as a group that gives rigorous performances of chamber music.
