Working in collaboration with the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles and the Palazzetto Bru Zane (Centre de Musique Romantique Française), Hervé Niquet and Le Concert Spirituel carry on with their journey of rediscovering forgotten operatic works, this time pitting themselves against music from the close of the Age of Enlightenment, in Andromaque (1778), the single tragédie lyrique written by André-Ernest-Modeste Grétry (1741- 1813). Known above all for his light opéras- comiques, at the end of his career the composer turned towards an increasingly heroic style in the vein of Méhul and Cherubini.

Does the name Taliesyn ring a bell? Taliesyn was a Celtic who lived in the sixth century. He was responsible for the entertainment at King Arthur’s court. And if you are a 60ties rock fan, then you will surely remember an album by Deep Purple entitled ‘The Book of Taliesyn’. So far a short lesson in history.
But Taliesyn is also the name of a Belgian progressive rock band located in the French speaking part of Belgium. The band was established in 2002 by the brothers Julien and Geoffroy Mary. The band toured intensively and signed a record deal with Moonzoomusic in 2008…

While best known today for having composed the ending to Puccini’s unfinished Turandot, Franco Alfano wrote some dozen operas, including Cyrano de Bergerac (1936) with a libretto by Henri Cain based on Edmond Rostand’s drama of the same name. It is a moving tale of romantic misunderstanding, swashbuckling bravado and heartbreaking loyalty, in which the eloquent Cyrano feels unable to express his love for Roxane because of his famously protuberant nose – except on behalf of his handsome but inarticulate friend, Christian.

The name of Charles Tournemire is a minor one, even in the history of French music, and you won’t find much about him in the standard reference books. Nor are you likely to get a great deal of opportunity to hear his music: only two of the works on this disc have been published in printed form, and Sagesse is the only one to have been recorded before. The disc would thus be valuable for that reason alone.

With six, original tunes, Janusz juxtaposes global unrest of 2018 with 1940s-France…. Says Janusz… "I am intrigued by the emotional weight of profound change upheavals that force individuals to define their beliefs, their sense of justice…their humanity. I want these songs to touch people deeply… people from all walks"

Throughout her career, most of Françoise Hardy's arrangements have tended toward the lush, though in a good way. La Question is lush too, but it's one of her most sparsely produced efforts, usually finding her voice accompanied by little more than an acoustic guitar, touches of bass, and very subtle orchestration.

In a stunning world premiere recording, music director and conductor Nicholas McGegan, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale, and an international cast of French Baroque opera stars present Jean-Philippe Rameau’s original 1745 version of Le Temple de la Gloire, with libretto by Voltaire. Presented as a fully staged opera in April 2017, the three sold out performances enjoyed universal critical acclaim from some of the world’s leading publications. The original manuscript had not been performed since 1745 and is housed at U.C. Berkeley’s Jean Gray Hargrove Music Library. Originally written to honour King Louis XV and commemorate the Battle of Fontenoy, the version of this ballet héroïque that has been heard up until now is the second version which was substantially changed by Rameau to appease the King and Parisian tastes.

Issued as part of Universal France's Essentials of Cinema series, Serge Gainsbourg's soundtracks to Michel Colombier's 1968 Ce Sacre Grand-Pere, and Pierre Koralnik's scandalous Cannabis, are among the most startling pieces of music in his oeuvre. Cannabis was based around a tawdry thriller and was set by Pierre Koralnik in the free, lone-generation of the late '60s, and starred none other than Gainsbourg and wife Jane Birkin…

Exclusive artist at Deutsche Grammophon, Julie Fuchs follows in the footsteps of her illustrious predecessors and invests songs and iconic tunes from the jewels of the stage and cinema of the roaring twenties. The texts in the spotlight develop themes widely discussed after 1918 pacifism, feminism and liberation of morals, birth that find a new resonance after the war in Poulenc's opera-bouffe, whose modernity and irrepressible fantasy plunge their roots in the vibrant interwar years when Paris was still the capital of the world.

Released in late 1968 and just about impossible to find on anything other than vinyl until this CD was offered.Francoise Hardy released quite a few English recordings over the years but I believe this was her first attempt to package the early 'pop' recordings for her English speaking fans.

L’oiseleur est un road trip lancé à toute allure, une collection de vignettes où s’entrechoquent réalisme contemporain et onirisme suranné, clins d’œil au cinéma pulp, poésie surréaliste, guitares new wave et scansion rap. Le premier album certifié disque d’or a fait du groupe les figures de proue de la nouvelle chanson française. Après une tournée couronnée de succès : plus de 250 dates dont 7 Trianon complets et un Olympia, Feu! Chatterton revient pour nous livrer son tout nouvel album, 'L’oiseleur', ode au temps béni de l’amour perdu.

Suivant la règle de bien des enregistrements live, cet album est tout simplement indispensable pour qui apprécie le talent de Lynda Lemay : ses chansons, du comique (« Chéri tu ronfles », « Au nom des frustrées ») au pathétique (« Ceux que l’on met au monde »), gagnent en épaisseur avec ce disque réalisé au Capitole de Québec. Lynda Lemay, avec un abattage assez irrésistible, se montre souvent magistrale, sur des morceaux parfois inédits, devant un public québécois particulièrement réactif. Un album live à ne pas manquer.
