Clairs de Lune | Berlioz – Fauré
Jean-Paul Fouchécourt, ténor & Quatuor Manfred

After more than 30 years of intense activity, the repertoire that our quartet has enjoyed, explored and championed is particularly vast. Several characteristics are expressed in it, and one of them is highlighted in this recording: our passion for the repertoire with voice.

The truly rich histories of string quartets, of the French mélodie and of the German Lied offer parallels, but curiously, they only rarely intersected (Schoeck, Wellesz, Schoenberg, Eisler, Hindemith, Milhaud wrote for voice and the quartet, but are not among the most sought-after composers). We often approach certain cycles through transcriptions that we commission or create for ourselves (Haydn, Schumann, Dvořák, Brahms, Mahler).

In response to the rich harmonic colours of Berlioz, Gabriel Fauré’s string quartet makes its presence felt through its entirely symbolist intimacy, its finely chiselled harmony, and “its thought purified up to the threshold of abstraction and evanescence”

With regard to the Summer Nights and in order to pursue our singular poetic path with Jean-Paul Fouchécourt, our dear quintet partner proposed to us the Fauréan vision of Gautier’s Lamento (Fauré kept the original title La chanson du pêcheur whereas Berlioz chose Sur les lagunes). In order to develop this long-distance dialogue between the two composers, we were tempted to compare the Clair de lune of Paul Verlaine by Fauré with that of Gautier by Berlioz.

This is how Clairs de lune was bornan album more poetic – more dreamlike – than musical, a truly personal album by our quartet, an amorous programme of mélodies for voice and string quartet.

Emmanuel Haratyk (Violist fot the Manfred Quartet).

Ensemble Près O@Rita Cuggia

In 2017, Robin Pharo creates the ensemble Près de votre Oreille (“Near Your Ear”), an original space of creation and artistic meeting between musicians and artists. Près de votre oreille is an idea that is near and dear to his heart: to involve listeners and spectators as much as possible with the emotional issues of a creation and to bring to the ears of the public an intimate and delicate music that flourishes in works and projects for a small group of artists, from early music to contemporary music, while exploring universes such as songs and choreography.

This project is a continuation of various programs that Robin Pharo has initiated since 2010. In duet with Ronald Martin Alonso, he participates in the production of the show Paroles de violes, dedicated to the viol music written by Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe, which has been programmed at the Théâtre de L’Epée de Bois, at the Cartoucherie. He plays as a duet with Ronan Khalil with whom he performs at the Handel House Museum in London and at the Jeunes Talents Festival in Paris. Robin Pharo recorded for the label Paraty the disc L’Anonyme Parisien, devoted to the virtuosic pieces composed by Charles Dollé for viola da gamba and basso continuo. In Poland, at the Muzyka W Raju Festival, Robin Pharo created a program entitled Orpheus in the Underworld which combines pieces composed by Marin Marais and tunes from the Opera La Descente d’Orphée aux Enfers, composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier.

During the 2017/2018 season, the ensemble Près de votre oreille will perform at the Baroque Festival in Timisoara, in Romania, at the Théâtre Grévin in Paris (Philippe Maillard Production), at the Embaroquement Immédiat Festival, at the Midsummer festival, in Hardelot and at the Nasz Telemann festival in Poland. In June 2018, with the collaboration of the L’Entente Cordiale’s Cultural Center, he will also record for the Paraty label a CD entitled Come Sorrow, dedicated to English Elizabethan music composed by Robert Jones, Tobias Hume and John Dowland, at the Elizabethan Hardelot Theatre. In September 2018, Près de votre oreille will be in residence in the city of Longjumeau for the creation of the piece Le Manuscrit de Voynich, composed for mezzo-soprano and a consort of violas da gamba by the Bulgarian composer Yassen Vodenitcharov. In october 2018, he will present a the Consevatory of Gennevilliers the show named Les Trois Ailes du Papillon (with two dancers and one solo viola da gamba). In 2019, Près de votre oreille will perform at the Opéra de Lille, at the Rencontres Internationales de Musique en Trégor, at the Rencontres Musicales de Bel-Air and at the festival baroque de Tarentaise.

Ensebaroque_Monaco

L’Ensemble Baroque de Monaco, fidèle à l’histoire baroque de la Principauté, défend les plus belles pages de la musique tirée du répertoire des XVIIème et XVIIIème siècles, tout en s’évertuant à recréer des ouvrages oubliés ou méconnus qui, par centaines, abondent dans le paysage de la musique baroque. Tous les instrumentistes jouent sur instruments d’époque, accordés aux diapasons historiques. Attaché à ses racines, l’Ensemble vit cependant avec son temps et fut placé en 2013 sous la direction de Matthieu Peyrègne, chanteur et chef d’orchestre spécialiste de musique ancienne. Fidèle à la vie musicale baroque faste de la Principauté sous le règne d’Antoine 1er qui recevait les meilleurs artistes transitant par la France et l’Italie, l’Ensemble fait des compositeurs originaires de ces deux pays sa spécialité. En témoignent ses récentes prestations de la Messe de l’Homme Armé pour 4 chœurs de Carissimi dont la recréation mondiale donna lieu à une tournée de concerts en 2015, ou ses prestations des plus belles pages de la tragédie lyrique telles les Indes Galantes de Rameau ou Armide de Lully. Ou encore la récente recréation mondiale de l’Assunzione della Beata Vergine d’Alessandro Scarlatti illustrée par ce disque. Monaco ayant accueilli en ses terres les plus grands compositeurs baroques de l’époque, cette formation s’inscrit dans une volonté d’être l’ambassadrice, et la mémoire vivante d’une période historique et culturelle d’une richesse incroyable à perpétuer. L’Ensemble Baroque de Monaco s’est aussi engagé à perpétuer le travail de la maison d’édition musicale de « L’Oiseau Lyre » qui n’a eu de cesse pendant le demi-siècle passé, de ressusciter nombre de chefs d’œuvres vocaux et instrumentaux de la période baroque.
