When Leopold of Anhalt-Cöthen died in 1728, his former Kapellmeister had not forgotten the five brilliant years he had spent in the prince’s service. He dedicated to his memory a mourning cantata almost entirely based on the music of two major works of the mid-1720s, the Trauer-Ode and the St Matthew Passion. Although the score is lost, the wordbook and other sources of information have now made it possible to reconstruct the work. In his first recording for harmonia mundi, Raphaël Pichon invites us on an exciting musical treasure hunt.

It's a shame Rubinstein didn't record more of Mozart's music, for his obvious affinity for the composer shines through these 1958-1960 stereo recordings of five concertos. Rubinstein's Mozart is forthright–he refuses to sentimentalize by swooning over the music's beauties or to indulge in larger-than-life playing that would rupture its classical framework. Even in the famous Andante of the 21st Concerto, his melting legato traces the curve of the melody without excess. Moderation was his byword, so while there are times one could wish for over-the-top risk taking–a more unbuttoned Allegro of the K. 453, a tad more melodrama in the first movement of the K. 466, some extra sizzle in the outer movements of K. 488–what we have is built to last for the long term. These are performances you can't get tired of. There's a general sense of rightness about tempo choices, and everything, from the singing tone to the exquisite phrasing to the perfectly managed transitions, reflects a master pianist playing music he feels deeply. The accompaniments are fine and the transfers significantly improved over past issues.

Au sud de l’Inde, les Kôlams sont des motifs géométriques éphémères, colorés et dessinés à l’entrée des maisons, sur les chemins de terre ou d’asphalte pour accueillir les hommes et les dieux. Kôlam est justement le titre du premier album du percussionniste Prabhu Edouard qui dessine de ses mains de maître les contours d’une musique colorée et raffinée. Enregistrée à Paris, Leeds, Bombay et Calcutta, cet univers métissé et voyageur reflète à la perfection le parcours riche et atypique du musicien entouré ici d’une équipe de virtuoses éclectiques. Le Franco-indien ayant travaillé avec des épées nommées Hariprasad Chaurasia, Lakshmi Shankar, Nguyên Lê, Joachim Kühn, Jordi Savall, Vincent Segal ou bien encore Magic Malik slalome sur cet album entre musique traditionnelle, chant du Bengale, séquence bollywoodienne, bifurcation gnawa ou japonisante et plein d’autres sensations. Un disque envoûtant au sens propre du terme.
