The De Caelis ensemble pays tribute to two great female figures of the abbey of Fontevraud: Aliénor de Bretagne and Aliénor d'Aquitaine. In this album recorded at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, the ensemble De Caelis mixes ancient music and contemporary creation between sacred and profane by paying tribute to Aliénor de Bretagne and Aliénor d'Aquitaine. The polyphonic and monodic pieces of the Graduel of Eleanor of Brittany precede the Song of Guillaume d'Aquitaine, the piece of the composer Philippe Hersant written in 2015 and inspired by a poem by Guillaume IX, grandfather of Eleanor of Aquitaine and First of the troubadours. Two songs of troubadours are also present in this album. Abbess of Fontevraud, Eleanor of Brittany bequeathed to his death in 1342 the gradual bearing his coat of arms, which remains an exceptional source for the study of the practice of Gregorian chant in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.

These six world première recordings present one of percussion's greatest masters in a panorama of works by leading composers of our time. This remarkable journey through sound and rhythm includes electronic extensions such as the dramatically funky climaxes to Bruno Mantovani's Le Grand Jeu, a dreamy musical halo around metal instruments in Marco Stroppa's Auras and Jean-Claude Risset's sound illusions in Nature contre Nature. Peter Eötvös's Thunder is a unique quest to explore the potential of a single bass timpano, while Philippe Hersant revisits Berlioz, Schubert and Gounod in his Trois petite études. René Leibowitz's Three Caprices were among the first works written for solo vibraphone.

Vocello… A contraction of ‘voce’ and ‘cello’, vocello is a word invented by Henri Demarquette, which is not yet to be found in the dictionary. It designates the unprecedented encounter of an a cappella chorus and solo cello, an encounter that, since 2013, has given rise to a new repertoire, as only a temperament as imaginative and unbridled as Henri Demarquette’s could conceive.

Il désigne la rencontre inédite entre choeur a cappella et violoncelle solo, rencontre qui a donné naissance depuis 2013 à un répertoire nouveau : Eric Tanguy, Philippe Hersant, Thierry Escaich, Justė Janulytė notamment, ont répondu présents et ont apporté leurs pierres précieuses à l’édification d’un répertoire quasiment inédit. En écho à cette modernité, le projet s’est aussi construit en puisant librement son inspiration dans les musiques anciennes à travers des arrangements de pièces de Henry Purcell, Jean Ockeghem, Jacob Clemens non papa, John Dowland.

The originality of this album’s programme is its focus on famous sacred pieces transcribed for the warm and lyrical voice of the cello, an instrument whose tone is certainly one of the closest to the singing voice. The words of the Magnificat, Requiem, Stabat Mater or Ave Maria - well known in the repertoire of vocal sacred music - fade here to better reveal the development of musical emotion aroused by the melody itself, and the subtlety of the accompaniments (organ, viola, theorbo, voice) in reinforcing and supporting the expressiveness of the singing.

Alone or in the company of other instruments, the harp’s unique sonority can evoke either the wind blowing or the heart beating. So it is not surprising that such an instrument inspired the poet Alfred Tennyson to write, “Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with might; / Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, pass’d in music out of sight.” This recording takes the listener through the 20th century, building in intensity as it reveals the harp’s many facets, whether in a solo, accompaniment or chamber music setting. Through the works presented here, the V of Valérie becomes the roman V, the soloist becoming part of a quintet.

France’s leading violist, Gérard Caussé is widely acclaimed as ranking among the handful of great international viola talents of our time and one of the few who, since Primrose, have made the viola once again a solo instrument in its own right. This has been recognised by an impressive range of major record labels, whether for solo, concerto or chamber music recordings, earning him numerous awards from the international music press. Highly respected by his peers, Caussé performs and records regularly with such household names as Emmanuel Krivine, Charles Dutoit, Kent Nagano, Gidon Kremer, Maria João Pires, Augustin Dumay, François-René Duchable, Paul Meyer, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon.

En 1901 mourait Victoria, symbole d'un siècle d'austérité. Loin de la légende "victorienne", on découvre ici une souveraine et une femmeardente.
Il y a cent ans, la reine Victoria mourait et entrait dans la légende comme une petite dame obèse et impérieuse. Son nom symbolise un siècle d'hypocrisie, d'austérité sourcilleuse, de chasteté puritaine. Le moment est venu de corriger le mythe d'une Victoria "victorienne"…
