Friend and disciple of Martial Solal, Manuel Rocheman is one of the greatest French Jazz pianists, excelling both in his own compositions as those of his favourite pianist, Bill Evans, to whom he just dedicated his last album (NJ 620911). Thanks to a common friend, he met the great guitarist Toninho Horta, legendary Brazilian guitarist who influenced Pat Metheny, and they decided to make a record together. Guitar and piano, Jazz and Brazil, this lively and interactive dialogue between two great musicians from different backgrounds provides great joy and great inventiveness.

Rocheman, in his tribute, adds a quickening support to Evans' art like scaffolding buttressing an ancient sculpture that better allows for the ethereal to gain substance, to be seen and heard. Few pianists could pull off the high-wire act that was Bill Evans, and Rocheman does not even attempt to. Instead, he provides definition, darkening the lines of Evans' thought, making a clearer picture.

Classical / Baroque / Chamber Music

Original released by Auvidis France in 1986. This reissue released by Auvidis-Naïve in 2000 (ES 9956). Couperin places himself between the Italian and French musical styles of his day to create something rather greater than either. For the most part early works, these sonatas with dance suites combine the style of Lully and Louis XIV's court with Corelli's brilliance: the result is a Grand Tour of the high Baroque, given, s'il vous plait, with a French accent. Savall's rendition, true to form, is dark, elegant, and supple. He assigns the trio-sonata texture to differing combinations of violins, oboes, and traversi, all with a large and inspired continuo group. Performers: Monica Huggett, Chiara Banchini, Ton Koopman, Hopkinson Smith, Stephen Preston, Ku Ebbinge &c. Highly recommended.

Recorded in the spring and summer of 2011, Bertrand Chamayou's set of Franz Liszt's Années de pèlerinage (Years of Pilgrimage) was released just in time to honor the composer's 200th anniversary in October. That year saw a number of releases and reissues of the complete Années, and this ambitious collection of picturesque vignettes became increasingly popular despite its considerable length. The years in the title were the late 1830s, when Liszt and the Countess Marie d'Agoult traveled across Switzerland and Italy, and the pieces summon the full range of Romantic piano gestures and techniques, put at the service of poetic description and expressive power.

"…Azzolini is one of the most brilliant players of the baroque bassoon these days. It is telling that the previous two volumes with bassoon concertos were also performed by him, whereas in the series of discs with violin concertos the solo parts are allocated to various violinists. However, it is not just his virtuosity which is impressive. In the slow movements he shows his capabilities in the realm of expression. The ensemble L'Aura Soave Cremona operates on the same wavelength. In previous volumes I found their playing sometimes a bit abrasive, even aggressive. That isn't the case here. The contrasts in Vivaldi's concertos are emphasized through the choice of tempi: in the slow movements the tempi are usually very slow, and are performed with great intensity…" ~musicweb-international

"Considering the small number of solo concertos for the bassoon from the baroque period the number of Vivaldi's compositions for this instrument is remarkable. With 39 concertos for one bassoon this part of his oeuvre is the second largest of his instrumental output, after the concertos for violin. That is all the more notable as there is no conclusive evidence that this instrument was played at the Ospedale della Pietà. Vivaldi wrote the largest part of his instrumental works for the girls of this institution…"

Double Messieurs, c’est l’histoire de deux pianistes qui se retrouvent après 20 ans ; celle de Jean-François Zygel et du pianiste de jazz Antoine Hervé. Double Messieurs, c’est aussi l’histoire de 6 dates de concerts, dans six villes différentes. Double Messieurs enfin, c’est avant tout une histoire d’improvisation. En composant ce duo, Jean-François Zygel, figure émérite du classique dans les médias et pour les amateurs passionnés d’improvisation à la ville, aidé du jazzman Antoine Hervé, casse une bonne fois pour toute la barrière qu’il y a entre la musique classique et le jazz.
