Telemann - Trios & Quatuors avec viole de gambe
La Rêveuse

I've listened before to several recent albums of this excellent ensemble.
Diving deeper into their catalogue yields the same high quality of musicianship.
This is an excellent album.

Default What Classical Music Are You Listening To Tonight?

Bach: Violinkonzerte in A-Moll und E-Dur; Konzert fur Zwei Violinen in D-Moll
David & Igor Oistrach, violins; George Malcolm, harpsichord; Royal Philharmonic London, Sir Eugene Goossens conducting
DG (1963), vinyl

Perhaps stylistically dated, but still one of my absolute favorite performances of the violin concertos. The majestic flow is gorgeous. Too bad about the rumble in spots though.

Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre - Sonates pour violon, viole obligée & basse-continue
La Rêveuse
Qobuz 24/88.2




I've listened to works of this lady before, and I've always liked them.
These pieces are very enjoyable, and the musicians play wonderfully together.
I'm appreciating this ensemble more and more.

Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, "presumably" depicted in a contemporary portrait on the cover of this release from France's Mirare label, was a keyboardist and composer in the orbit of, although not directly connected with, the court of Louis XV of France. Her music tends to show up on collections of compositions by women, but this release by the group La Rêveuse, with violinist Stéphan Dudermel in the spotlight, accomplishes more by focusing on a single genre in which Jacquet de la Guerre, it seems, had a major impact on French Baroque music. Composed mostly in the first decade of the 18th century, these violin sonatas and trio sonatas date from 15 years or more before Couperin's grand effort to reunite the French and Italian tastes, and in fact they are among the first stirrings of the Corelli style and Italian High Baroque instrumental music in France. The sonatas consist mostly of Italianate sonata movements with a few French dances thrown in, but what's most attractive is Jacquet de la Guerre's way of manipulating Corelli's liking for sequential constructions to produce an affecting sentimentality; her movement structures are both thematically tight and charming in a very French way. Sample the opening Grave movements of the first two sonatas (tracks 1 and 7). La Rêveuse captures this quality nicely, although it's hampered by icily harsh sound reverberating from the walls of the church where the music was recorded. The entire question of whether music by women is distinctive due to gender is a vexed one, with some of the arguments emanating from academia failing to meet even a standard of verifiability that would be considered acceptable in an astrology clinic. But this pioneering recording provides plenty of food for thought. Notes are in French, German, and English of a sort.

Mozart - Violin Concertos
Trondheimsolistene
Marianne Thorsen

Qobuz 24/88.2




Like we're used to with this label, 2L delivers a sonic highlight.
The playing is excellent too.

With this recording we wish to present a fresh version of the most elegant violin concertos in the history of music. While respecting the origin and tradition of this music, we have sought a new and dynamic musical experience rooted in our present time. To us, Mozart is as solid as rock, as soft as snow, and as clear as ice; this recording embraces the listener in a sonic world that invites to participate actively in the experience, in close and mutual interaction with the soloist and the orchestra. Only in this way can we genuinely express our love of Mozart's music.


This album from 2L was declared a "Record to Die For" by Stereophile Magazine and won the Spellemann-prize as Best Classical Album when it was first released in 2006. In only a decade this recording with Marianne Thorsen and TrondheimSolistene has manifested as a classic audiophile reference, the world very first commercial recording in DXD resolution.
