Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre was a virtuoso harpsichordist, as well as the author of many pioneering works. She left an abundant output of cantatas, both secular and sacred. Here the soprano Maïlys de Villoutreys, Héloise Gaillard and her Ensemble Amarillis pay tribute to her with the cantatas Judith and Sémélé, inspired by two women, who embody virtue and courage on the one hand, temerity and pride on the other. Whether intimate or more operatic, both works highlight the composer’s innate sense of drama.

For this new recording, taking the form of an initiatory journey, Marianne Piketty and Le Concert Idéal explore the subject of night-time and the fascination it holds for composers. From the capricious and exuberant nights of Antonio Vivaldi to the melancholy of Lili Boulanger’s D’un soir triste and the greater optimism of its partner piece, D’un matin de printemps, via the poetic and sensuous dreams of Eugène Ysaÿe, the musicians of Le Concert Idéal travel to different places and different periods in time, looking at the night sky, and reaching the present day with the concerto Bajo la estrella, commissioned from the composer Alex Nante and recorded here for the first time.

"That now on the organ or instrument of all instruments, in the churches, so respectable and excellent much and great is held: that makes the unspeakable and exceedingly great art, which therein is and is conceived." (Michael Praetorius 1619)
Many North German composers brought the great richness of this instrument to its highest splendor: besides Michael, his namesake Hieronymus Praetorius, Buxtehude, Tunder, Weckmann, Leyding, Druckenmüller, Hanff and Bruhns founded the North German Organ School between the 16th and 18th centuries. Dirk Trüten plays the organ of the Catholic Church in Dübendorf, Switzerland, built by Bernhardt Edskes in 2014.

Liszt combined the whirlwind life of a virtuoso travelling all over Europe with a deep attachment to the Catholic faith and the Church. While his brilliant technique and fiery interpretations made him an unparalleled virtuoso, his sacred music, for which he was less well known, represented what was dearest in his own eyes. From 1856 onwards, he devoted himself more particularly to this field and set about reforming religious music in order to restore it to its rightful place of honour, capable of meeting the demands of conveying the divine message and mystery. His musical discourse becomes sparer but is also profoundly innovative, with many individual turns of language and harmonic daring.

In the courts of the 15th century, music was a constant companion. The chanson was a daily pleasure, a vehicle for poetry and passion, a remedy for pain and sublimated the richness of amorous relationships. The chanson was perhaps the musical form in which Dufay, despite being a man of the Church, best expressed his immense talent. He was seen as an absolute master among his peers, owing to the perfection of his writing and it's intense expressiveness, and he enriched the history of music with a masterly oeuvre that went far beyond the stylistic boundaries of the time. His 80 chansons show great diversity and allow us to appreciate the constant evolution of the aesthetic of the genre. The Ensemble Gilles Binchois present a program of 2 selections in which courtly love finds it's most beautiful expression and refinement.

Marianne Piketty and the Ideal Concert, with the help of numerous unpublished practical documents, embark on the adventure of a journey to the heart of this Venetian school, where so many musical currents, sometimes antagonistic and anachronistic, have rubbed shoulders and let everything and its opposite germinate, without tension. From the virtuoso fevers of Vivaldi to the solemnity of Ziani, from the affects of Strozzi to the dances of Turini, saluting the majestic impetus of Gallo (whose music served as the basis for Stravinsky’s Pulcinella), Le Concert Idéal lifts the veil on a domain where reason often gives way to the senses and the force of the imagination.
