Jean-Baptiste Robin (organ), François Chaplin (piano), Romain Leleu (trumpet), Philippe Cuper (clarinet), Frédéric Champion (organ)

Orchestre Régional de Normandie, Jean Deroyer

Jean-Baptiste Robin is not only one of the foremost organists of France, he is also the author of a remarkable oeuvre, in which the organ forms the centre point. His musical language is eclectic, influenced by a wide variety of cultures, philosophies and religions both western and eastern. His music is highly evocative, it speaks, narrates, it stimulates the imagination. It is inspired by poetry, myths and legends, it speaks a language of micro- and macrocosm.

Robin secured the collaboration of several of France’s best soloists: Romain Leleu (trumpet), Francois Chaplin (piano), Philippe Cuper (clarinet) to join in works for their instrument and organ. The orchestra is the Orchestre regional de Normandie, conducted by Jean Deroyer.

A new recording of fascinating new music, both intimate, mystic and spectacular, by one of France’s most promising composers!

Ensemble San Felice, Federico Bardazzi

This fascinating programme attempts to depict an imaginary coming together of pilgrims from various countries on their way to celebrate Christmas Mass at the Catalan monastery of Montserrat, one of the strongest bastions of Christianity in the middle ages. During the Matins on Christmas day a boy dressed up as the Sybil blindfoldedly sang the famous verses from pagan times predicting the coming of Christ and the end of the world (this practice was later forbidden by the Council of Trent).

This liturgical drama includes music from the famous Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, Gregorian Chant and the 14th century Barcelona Lectionary.

Federico Bardazzi and his vocal and instrumental group use copies of original instruments (based on detailed research). For the vocal parts they use a form of improvisation and ornamentation based on Christian, Arab and Jewish tradition, as was in the culture of the Iberian Peninsula in the middle ages.

Paisiello: Flute Quartets (6), Op. 23

Paisiello: Flute Quartets (6), Op. 23


Ensemble Il Demetrio: Gabriele Formenti (flute), Elisa Bestetti (violin), Maurizio Schiavo (viola) & Antonio Papetti (cello)

Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816) is one of the key composers of the Neapolitan School, primarily famous for his vast amount of operas written when in the service of Ferdinand IV of Naples.

Paisiello’s instrumental output is also substantial, and it was written for the ever growing bourgeoisie, for domestic use by advanced amateurs. His 6 Flute Quartets are delightful works, full of charming, sunny melodies and sparkling virtuosity, in the true tradition of the Neapolitan School, as comparable with Cimarosa and Guglielmi.

The Italian ensemble Il Demetrio specialises in Baroque and Early Classical music, playing on authentic instruments.

Variazioni per chitarra


Giulio Tampalini (guitar “Luigi Mozzani” that belonged to Andrès Segovia)

Luigi Mozzani (1869-1943) was born into a poor family in Ancona, Italy. At a very young age he learned to play the guitar and the oboe, later he became principal oboist of the New York Philharmonic. However it is the guitar which was his great love. He wrote a “Mozzani” method, which included his technical innovations in Etudes for advanced students. He was also active in the development of the guitar as instrument, and promoted the so-called “lyra-guitar” in the form of a lyre.

Mozzani’s music is charming, lyrical and beautifully atmospheric, the works issued in cycles of studies or character pieces.

Included as a bonus is the only guitar piece by Ottorino Respighi, a set of variations.

Played by one of Italy’s leading guitarists, and “house-guitarist” of Brilliant Classics: Giulio Tampalini, with an impressive discography to his name of works by Tarrega, Llobet, Mirto, Ugoletti a.o.

Excellent liner notes in both English and Italian.

De Profundis

Roman Sketches, Op. 7

Piano Sonata in F sharp minor


Emanuele Torquati (piano)

Charles Tomlinson Griffes (1884-1920) was one of the most original and well-known romantic American composers. Born into a wealthy family he started studying the piano at an early age, and went to Europe for further education, an essential rite of passage for any aspiring American musician. In Europe he got acquainted with the Avant Garde of that time: Debussy, Ravel, Scriabin, Schoenberg. On his return in the States he developed his own personal style, influenced by his love for literature and poetry.

Griffes’ style is fundamentally romantic, with occasional influences of impressionism. This new recording contains his complete works for piano: the ambitious Piano Sonata and several collections of character pieces with titles such as “The Lake at Evening” and “The Vale of Dreams”.

Excellent performances by Italian pianist Emanuele Torquati, who already made successful recordings for Brilliant Classics of piano music by Roussel (BC94329) and Zemlinsky (BC95067).

Booklet notes written by the artist, in both English and Italian.

Monteverdi: Il ottavo libro de madrigali, 1638 'Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi'

Monteverdi: Il ottavo libro de madrigali, 1638 'Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi'


Le Nuove Musiche, Krijn Koetsveld

Claudio Monteverdi published his 8th book of madrigals in 1638, in a time when the opera as art form became steadily more popular. In order to add a theatrical character to his madrigals he named them “madrigali guerrieri e amorosi”, madrigals of war and love. They are indeed overtly dramatic in expression, in fact they may be called mini operas in its opposing characters, intense drama and programmatic writing. Highlights are the famous “Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda” (on text by Tasso) and the breathtakingly beautiful Lamento della Ninfa, one of the most moving laments ever written.

The vocal ensemble Le Nuove Musiche consists of the elite of Dutch Early Music vocalists, led by eminent conductor and scholar Krijn Koetsveld. Their first Monteverdi recording, the Books 5 & 6 (BC93799) received excellent reviews in the international press, among which a “5 star” in the French Diapason.

Liner notes by the conductor, complete song texts in the original language included in the booklet.

Marco Ruggeri (organ)

Polibio Fumagalli (1830‐1900) was one of the most important exponents of 19th century Italian organ music. He held important posts in Milan, as organ teacher at the Conservatory and organist of the S. Celso he was in close contact and collaboration with the famous organ builder Giuseppe Bernasconi, which whom he helped developing the “symphonic” or “orchestra” organ, its registers imitating orchestral instruments.

This new recording presents two of Fumagalli’s organ sonatas, in classical/romantic style, as well as the complete cycle “Ascetica Musicale”, character pieces of great charm and lyricism, using the full potential of the “orchestra’ organ.

Played with great imagination by Italian organist Marco Ruggeri on two historical Bernasconi organs, built in resp. 1885 and 1892, the specifications of which are included in the booklet. Ruggeri already proved his affinity with this repertoire in recordings for Brilliant Classics of works by Morandi (BC95333) and Petrali (BC95160).
