5 diapasons Meslanges

Pour bien commencer l’année que nous vous souhaitons la plus agréable: 5 Diapasons pour le second volume des Messes retrouvées de Titelouze.

“Les Meslanges ont l’enthousiasme des défricheurs. La doublure des voix par des cornets, sacqueboutes, serpent ou violes crée de riches couleurs, sans jamais masquer la profération d’un texte savamment prosodié qui est leur raison d’être …. La cohérence est telle qu’au détour d’un enchaînement, le miracle se produit : la première note de l’orgue semble sortir d’un gosier…” Vincent Genvrin Diapason, janvier 2021.

Alexandre Collard
 
First Prize winner at the Prague Spring International Music Competition in 2018 – along with the prize for best interpretation of the contemporary piece, the International Horn Society Prize, the Radio Free Europe Prize and a further nine awards, Second Prize winner at the Città di Porcia International Competition in 2013 and laureate of the Autumn Music Festival Competition (FMAJI) in 2011, Alexandre Collard has been among the elite musicians of his generation since his studies, first with Guy Mouy in Douai and then with André Cazalet at the Paris Conservatory.
A lover of the great symphonic repertory, Alexandre joined the Lille National Orchestra as solo horn at the age of 21, and has also played with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Philharmonique de Radio France and Dissonances, as well as performing solo concertos.
He is regularly invited to prestigious international chamber music festivals (Juventus, Deauville, Prague, Ticino etc.), and has played there together with artists such as Alena Baeva, Alissa Margulis, Graf Mourja, David Petrlik, Julian Steckel, Marie Hallynck and Jonas Vitaud.
His desire to explore the chamber music repertory led him to create the Ensemble Polygonestogether with his cellist wife, Natacha Colmez. This group mixes winds, strings and piano in a flexible, geometrically variable manner that allows them to interpret a great variety of works ranging from the very famous to lesser known treasures, contemporary pieces and spectacles for young audiences. The group has a particularly close collaboration with the composer Camille Pépin, and recently recorded a CD of her chamber music. He also plays sonata with the pianist Nicolas Royez, their first disc Aquarelles is to be released in January 2021.
Renowned pedagogue, he teaches in Douai, his hometown’s conservatory.

Collectif Trytone : Founded in 2016 by pianist Lucie de Saint Vincent, the Collectif Trytone came together around the idea of a musical synthesis, seeking to open the borders between musics, musicians, and the public. The Collectif explores a universe of possibilities, aiming to break down both stylistic and musical barriers. Meeting at the intersection of Baroque, Classical music and jazz, mixing different kinds of improvisations, this unconventional quintet creates a symbiosis between these genres and practices, bringing the music of the past into a contemporary context. Back to Bach, the Collectif’s first album, draws on the music of J.S. Bach as a wellspring of inspiration.

Après les 5 étoiles de Classica, c’est une autre belle critique de l’album Cage meets Satie, d’Anne de Fornel et Jay Gottlieb.
“Pour couronner le tout, Anne de Fornel se révèle aussi une excellente pianiste en duo avec Jay Gottlieb, éminent cagien, dans un album qui paraît simultanément avec, entre autres, les Three Dances, pour deux pianos préparés (1945), ainsi que la version du Socrate de Satie, arrangé pour deux pianos par Cage (1944-1969)”
