Musique Pour Mazarin! Qui a le coeur a tout - Le Jardin Secret

Musique Pour Mazarin! Qui a le coeur a tout - Le Jardin Secret
ID: COR16060
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Continuing its work with young artists, CORO has the pleasure of announcing Musique Pour Mazarin! the debut recording by le Jardin Secret, winners of both the first prize and audience prize at the Early Music Network Young Artists Competition 2007.

This talented young ensemble consisting of soprano, harpsichord, theorbo, viola da gamba and baroque cello, present a delightfully varied programme featuring a diverse mixture of French and Italian music that would have been heard at the court of the flamboyant Cardinal Jules Mazarin.

The juxtaposition of French and Italian works on this disc shows clearly the rich selection of music heard at Mazarin’s court in the late 1600s. They demonstrating the stark contrast between the French and Italian styles of the period with the added ingredient of political and cultural rivalry and intrigue - the Italian born Cardinal importing Italian culture into a resistant French context - contributes a little "piquancy" to the mix!

On this disc, which includes chansons by Charpentier, extracts of operas by Lully and Cavalli and the delightful, if at times brutal, ‘Mazarinades’, le Jardin Secret bring alive the emotive energy of the music, opening the door to the aesthetic world of this Baroque period in all its beguiling beauty.

Guillaume Dufay - Hilliard Live 4, Live Recording - Hilliard Ensemble

Guillaume Dufay - Hilliard Live 4, Live Recording - Hilliard Ensemble
ID: COR16055
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

A Franco-Flemish composer and music theorist of the early Renaissance, Dufay was the central figure in the Burgundian School and was the most famous and influential composer in Europe in the mid-15th century. His music was copied, distributed and sung across Europe and almost all composers of the succeeding generations absorbed some elements of his style.

The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. This series was only previously available direct from the group but has never before been fully available at international retail.

Arias by Farinelli dedicated to Maria Theresa from Austria

World Premiere Recording

Carlo Broschi, better known as Farinelli, who had been performed in a recent movie directed by Gérard Corbiau "Farinelli, the Queen Voice", had easily gained great popularity and fame through the centuries just like very well known composers as Paganini, or Liszt.
His great knowledge in music was enhanced in the Neapolitan society of the 18th century which was increasingly blooming as far as Art, Music and Culture in general is concerned. Naples as cross-roads for Artists, Musicians and Intellectuals from all over Europe.
Right here the young Carlo Broschi studied at the well known singing school with Nicola Porpora, at that time a cradle of many talented Artists and in 1720 his first debut with "Angelica and Medoro" an opera written by his teacher. Right after that performance he had been gaining increasing success and standing ovations. He started frequenting the high society of the most important European sovereigns. He had also great influence on public life of that time, by "sponsoring" Italian music as much as possible. After such hectic life, he then retired in his residence in Bologna where he started receiving visits of very important personages. as the young Mozart and the Emperor Joseph the Second from Austria. The five Arias included in this worldpremiere release have all been composed by paying homage to Maria Teresa from Austria, the Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, who has always admired and enhanced Art and Music and whose autograph is preserved at the National Library in Vienna. The five Arias you may enjoy listening to, have been forwarded to the Empress on March the 30th, 1753 and were named "The Empress' Notebook". These Arias are of very high value in music, since they can be considered as the spiritual testament of a real Virtuoso. Indeed Carlo Broschi Farinelli influenced many works at that time, thanks to his great personality and composing style. A legend to be still celebrated, a true lifestyle lesson.

Ravish’d with Sacred Extasies - Devotional Songs

Ravish’d with Sacred Extasies -  Devotional Songs
ID: COR16081
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

A Brand new recording of Elizabethan and Restoration Devotional Songs to the lute and theorbo by Thomas Campian, John Dowland, Pelham Humfrey & Henry Purcell.

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing a brand new recording by two of The Sixteen’s principal members - soprano, Elin Manahan Thomas and theorbo and lute player, David Miller.

The seventeenth century devotional songs on this disc were written against a backdrop of furious historical dramas and lurching tides of fortune. The songs chosen reflect these assorted times and contexts, and are accordingly diverse. Ravish’d with Sacred Extasies (a quote taken directly from Playford's ‘Harmonia Sacrae’) explores some of the most beautiful Elizabethan devotional songs ranging from the doctrinally eloquent to the theologically unsteady, from the spare and the restrained to the opulent and the overblown, from Dowland’s small cluster of late devotional songs to Purcell’s flowery and luscious settings.

"Ilona Domnich gave the most compelling performance…I have ever witnessed…..I have seen a lot of Voix Humaines…this was the first I’ve ever known to leave me on the edge of tears." Michael White, Opera Now

A stunning debut album from an up and coming young opera singer, Ilona Domnich. This diverse album covers a range of styles, as Ilona says …”some of the songs are very difficult. For instance some parts of the Strauss songs are very acrobatic, on the other hand the lyrical Italian songs, while ostensibly less technically demanding, call for intense musicality and sensitivity”

Ilona Domnich is a young soprano who is getting recognized, her debut disc for Quartz was recently featured on Performing to the Red Light on BBC Radio 4
