Jean-Christian Petitfils, "Louis XIV"
Perrin | 2014 | ISBN: N/A | French | EPUB | 751 pages | 2.8 MB

Ce livre est autre chose qu'une biographie classique. C'est tout le règne qu'il embrasse dans une vision générale de la société du Grand Siècle, renouvelant le sujet, mettant à mal bien des clichés et des vieilles lunes grâce à une documentation considérable, dont de nombreuses études étrangères peu accessibles, grâce tout autant à une analyse remarquable, originale, juste, du pouvoir, de ses serviteurs, de ses moyens d'action et de propagande, de sa grandeur, mais aussi de ses limites et de ses contradictions. …

Pianist Alexandre Tharaud and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras are long-established as a duo team, but this is the first time that Queyras has joined Tharaud for an Erato recording. They have chosen works that lie at the heart of the Romantic repertoire, all by Brahms: his two cello sonatas and the duo’s own transcriptions of six of the Hungarian Dances.

This double-disc set might seem to be an item for Baroque specialists only, but general listeners should sample it as well; it's quite lovely, and its history has a labor-of-love aspect that comes through in the playing by Norwegian harpsichordist Ketil Haugsand, a specialist in the music of Jean-Baptiste Forqueray. He built the harpsichord himself and finally managed to record these pieces after several false starts.

Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos | # CHAN 10720(3) | Time: 03:33:50

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is starting a complete, chronological survey of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, to run parallel with his complete Haydn sonatas series. This first box set covers the sonatas composed in the 1790s. Two further volumes, of middle and late sonatas respectively, will follow in 2013 and 2014. Each three-disc box set in the series will be available as the price of two CDs. In a recent cover feature in International Piano, Michael Church spoke with the pianist about the new project and reported: ‘For Bavouzet, the particular pleasure of coming to Beethoven after Haydn lies in the fact that although their basic harmonic language is roughly the same, in Beethoven’s scores the dynamics are clearly indicated, especially where they seem completely independent of the music’s so-called natural harmonic tensions.’ Bavouzet added: ‘The accents are in exactly the wrong place, and that’s what creates his music’s excitement. I am so happy to have these two streams of my work running side by side for the next few years.’

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s fascinating journey through Beethoven’s complete sonatas now comes to an end with this third volume. The prodigious exploration reaches its culmination in this three-disc set – sold for the price of 2 CDs as were its two predecessors – featuring the most mature and exploratory of Beethoven’s sonatas, including the heroic, two-movement ‘Appassionata’. Bavouzet’s distinguished interpretations reveal not only the technical virtuosity but also the emotional power of these contrasted works. With his characteristically fresh and energetic, yet expressive and profound approach, Bavouzet captures a Beethoven drawing the contours of romantic keyboard textures that would become the staple of the next generation. This project will also resonate on the concert platform, as a series of recitals will take it to the most significant venues around the world.
