The eeemerging CD Collection of Ambronay Editions
After three years of support, the best eeemerging ensembles have the opportunity to make their first professional recording within the Collection Jeunes Ensembles of Ambronay Editions, created in 2010. 2 ensembles are selected each year.
PRISMA and Consone Quartet had been selected to record a CD in 2018.
Virtuoso sonatas, tarantellas and chaconnes from seventeenth-century Italy are performed here with contagious energy by the young ensemble PRISMA, a laureate of the eeemerging programme. The four musicians accompany this colourful programme of variations on the theme of the seasons with their own improvisations.
The young London-based Consone Quartet, a laureate of the eeemerging programme, presents period-instrument performances of three major works of the string quartet repertory. Joseph Haydn (op.77 no.1) and Felix Mendelssohn (opp.12 and 81) sound extraordinarily fresh and spontaneous from their bows
Sollazzo Ensemble and Repicco had been selected to record a CD in 2017.
Sollazzo Ensemble has released on the 16th of March 2018 a CD untitled En Seumeillant – Dreams and visions in the Middle Ages for Ambronay Éditions which received a Diapason d’or. The Sollazzo Ensemble approaches the vast and little-performed repertory of late medieval music with stylistic rigour and contagious passion. From the most innocent reverie to the drunkard’s song by way of profound mysticism, the programme of this debut disc for Ambronay Editions offers a varied image of the journey of the mind as it appears in the music of the Middle Ages.
Repicco has released on the 30th of October 2017 a CD untitled Assassini, assassinati for Ambronay Éditions. The impetuous duo Repicco (violin/theorbo), a discovery of the eeemerging programme, evokes here the tragic destinies of composers who were murderers or murder victims. Plunge into the seething atmosphere of Baroque Italy to meet the extravagant personalities of Alessandro Stradella, Giovanni Antonio Pandolfi Mealli and Ignazio Albertini!
Sollazzo Ensemble will release a disc called « En Seumeillant me vint une vision » on the 16 of March 2018.
Seconda Pratica and Voces Suaves had been selected to record a CD in 2016.
Voces Suaves has released on Novembre 2016 a CD untitled L’Arte del Madrigale for Ambronay Éditions. Voces Suaves goes back to the sources of the art of the madrigal through its most brilliant exponents, including Monteverdi, de Wert, Agostini, Luzzaschi and Marenzio. The ensemble revives the vocal splendours of the courts of Mantua and Ferrara, the cradles of this music theatre in miniature that prefigures opera.
Seconda Pratica has released on October 2016 a CD untitled Nova Europa for Ambronay Éditions. Seconda Pratica explores the shifting frontiers of the contents colonised by Europe, through the prism of music and its hybridisations. Nostalgic pastorales and Portugese and Spanish sacred polyphony of the 17th century intermingle in this delicate and humanistic programme.
L’Aura Rilucente and Radio Antiqua had been selected to record a CD in 2015.
Radio Antiqua has released on october 2015 a CD untitled Treasures of the German Baroque. Radio Antiqua sheds new light on these magnificent sonatas from three major German collections. Priceless treasures for violin, bassoon or recorder by Pisendel, Reichenauer, Schaffrath, Brescianello, Dieupart and Telemann, here brought back to life with brio.
L’Aura Rilucente has released on June 2015 a CD untitled Handel-Haym. A talented composer whose works are unfairly neglected, Nicola Francesco Haym was the librettist of many Handel operas. The musicians of L’Aura Rilucente evoke the relationship between the two artists with tenderness and brio in a programme juxtaposing trio sonatas ans arrangements of operatic arias.
