In this new series, Paul Agnew and Les Arts Florissants invite us to follow the creative itinerary of J. S. Bach through the times and cities in which he lived.

Under the fingers of Adam Laloum, Schubert's music becomes a journey. The emotions that enrich it are those of a deeply human artistry and the murmur of a voice that still moves us 200 years after falling silent. Adam Laloum's way with Schubert is unique, as his first album (Sonatas D894 and D958) so eloquently demonstrated. A new world awaits us here with the Sonata D959 and the Moments musicaux, whose unassuming title belies the lasting impact they have had on piano lovers.

After a formidable first volume, Cedric Tiberghien continues his exploration of Beethoven's corpus of variations. At the heart of this new album are the famous Thirty-two Variations in C minor and their tangy reminiscences of Bach - the Ciaccona from Partita No.2 for violin solo, presented here in Brahms's masterly transcription. He also takes the opportunity to show us what a certain school of American composers (Crumb, Cage, Feldman) has made of this tradition of variation form.

Vom späten 17. bis weit ins 18. Jahrhundert hinein war Alessandro Scarlatti eine der wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten des europäischen Musiklebens und beeinflusste die musikalische Entwicklung sowohl in der Oper als auch in der Instrumentalmusik.Die Aufnahme zeigt die Vielfalt der musikalischen Werke, die der einflussreiche Barockkomponist schuf: von Sinfonien, Arien und Concerti bis hin zu Concerti grossi und Sonaten für Flauto dolce, Streicher und Basso continuo. Scarlatti war ein Meister in der Kunst der Instrumentalkomposition. In der Sinfonia zur Serenata »Venere e Amore« etwa setzt er die Flauto dolce prominent ein, mit raschen Affektwechseln und rezitativischen Passagen im Zusammenspiel mit den Streichern.

Passionate about travel, Saint-Saëns was strongly influenced by the cultural diversity he encountered in North Africa. Zahia Ziouani, as one immersed in these twin cultures herself, is able to shed new light on the composer’s travel-inspired works by reflecting them through the prism of the Algerian musical styles of Francisco Salvador-Daniel and Idir, as well as performing in the company of Rachid Brahim-Djelloul, Fettouma Ziouani and guest soloists. A fascinating musical dialogue!

In this journey through the keyboards of time, we can discover these pieces as they sounded at the time of their creation, but also grasp the invisible thread that links them to each other.

While paying glittering homage to the animal kingdom, this programme also takes us on a journey through the centuries: the existing pieces freely inspired by birdsong, from Couperin to Ravel, are mirrored by an astonishing ‘Carnival of Animals in Peril’.Its composer, Vincent Bouchot, reminds us of the disappearance of certain species of animals - and of certain musical instruments that very nearly became extinct too.

Following on from his formidable complete recording of the Preludes, Nikolai Lugansky now immerses us in two more major cycles by Rachmaninoff, the Études-tableaux. Like Chopin and Liszt, the Russian composer here transcends every technical difficulty to make room for emotion alone. At once poet and virtuoso, Nikolai Lugansky is unmatched in his ability to do justice to this prodigious musical kaleidoscope.
