Cellist Tristan Honsinger started improvising in Montreal more than forty years ago, prior to his decisive move to Europe (where he joined ICP Orchestra)where he’s been at the centre of improvised music activity ever since. So this group represents an oblique sort of homecoming, as well as an introduction to some of this city’s finest players today. Their rapport is obvious, the results a satisfying mixture of musical empathy and creative conflict. Tristan plays with characteristic daring from his reserves of readymade tune fragments and shards of poetry and into the protean unknown that is the foundation for the best group improvising. Josh Zubot and Nicolas Caloia don’t merely follow him there, but provoke him – and each other – in ways that are, by turns, subtle, assertive, and irreverent. A superb encounter.

Label: Grand Piano | Release Year: 2017

Always inventive and innovation-seeking, Erik Satie’s earliest works show traces of Chopin as an influence but he soon came to reject virtuosity and tradition, choosing instead to remain with the quintessentially French traits of simplicity, clarity, precision, elegance and economy. Satie’s hauntingly beautiful floating melodies and modal tonalities are unforgettably compelling, combining bygone classical ages with Parisian sophistication. This landmark recording uses both a new and corrected edition of Satie’s music and Cosima Wagner’s own 1881 Erard piano, his instrument maker of choice.

These motets for one, two and four voices, were composed to augment the repertoire of the choir school of Saint Michel et Sainte Gudule in Brussels, where Fiocco was singing master. Nicolas Achten who directs Scherzi Musicali, found this music “immediately appealing” and hopes that this recording will show the quality of the work of this neglected composer.

Christophe Rousset leads his ensemble Les Talens Lyriques, a chamber choir and a large cast of soloists on the first recording in over 40 years of the one act comic opera Uthal by Étienne Nicolas Méhul. The French Romantic composer conceived the work as the musical translation of the Scottish fog and replaced the orchestra's violins with violas to lend a darker sound. This large-scale production was staged and recorded at the Château de Versailles in May 2015.

Joseph-Hector Fiocco's music is remarkable for its quality, richness of invention and the liveliness that characterizes it all. With a somewhat surprising coherence it achieves a fusion of French and Italian aesthetics, as regards both harmony and melody. His infectious melodies give the listener the impression of knowing them already; singability is always paramount, and the lines are supple and elegant. Now and then a passage is reminiscent of Vivaldi, Pergolesi or Couperin. Yet the firm, inspired pen of Fiocco confirms his stature as a composer of the first order, with a highly personal language full of sensuality and light. Nicolas Achten and Scherzi Musicali deliver a second volume devoted to Fiocco's motets, after a 2011 release which was awarded a Diapason d'or Decouverte and IRR Outstanding.

The familiar hymn Veni Emmanuel is emblematic of the Advent season: a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ's coming. Framing this programme, the hymn paraphrases the great "O" Antiphons (plainchant settings traditionally sung on the days leading up to Christmas), complemented here by later works echoing their rich imagery and symbolism.

The cast of Nicolas Folmer and the stage for nearly two years, is composed of musicians with strong personality and unique tracks, which innovate by crazy improvisations. For the soloist, "improvisation is that magical moment where nothing is foreseeable, where everything is possible but nothing is obligatory. It is a unique event that escapes all control in a world where we are constantly in control. We preserve this space of freedom that artists share with their audience as an intimate moment that binds them and that escapes all systems.

This bracingly eclectic recital opens with Fazıl Say’s Four Cities, a musical celebration of four Turkish locations the composer describes as “full of personal memories”. Originally a BBC commission, it was premiered in June 2012 during the City of London Festival by Nicolas Altstaedt and José Gallardo. “4 Cities is a dive into the world of poetry, mysticism, into the history, the secrets and passions of the Orient.I have never been more fascinated exploring the miracles and the stories of people’s daily life challenging the limits of my own instrument. The cello is transformed into a flute, a fiddle, a percussion instrument until it becomes the voice of the people inviting us to a world that feels closer to us than ever before having encountered it through its music.”
