As a professional singer, Hasmik Baghdasaryan, the soloist of the vocal ensemble Luys, appreciates the way the members of the Armenian quintet work together. The musicians’ cooperation within the ensemble is very harmonious and cheerful but at the same time on a high professional level. When on tour, Luys presents two very exclusive pieces of music “Banin Hor“ and “Ibr Zard“: The first piece was specially written for Hasmik Baghdasaryan, while the other one has been composed by her good friend, the well-known Armenian composer and artist Vahan Artsruni. He gave Luys the exclusive right to sing this song, which is a great honor to the artists. Besides her work with Luys, Hasmik Baghdasaryan has recorded many albums with modern composers, as for example with the Greek composer Alkis Baltas; with Vahan Artsruni she has recorded music comprising the music era of more than 500 years; and she has transferred the music of Mesrop Mashtots into the modern music age….

From the beginning of time songs of mourning, sorrow and lamentation have been a part of Western music. Aristotle had written that nothing was more powerful than rhythm and song for imitating all the turmoil of the soul. Composers of the Baroque Period strove to deal with nothingness and eternity by exploring the utter depths of the heart. And this is what these songs are all about.

The first work, ‘Qual prodigio è ch’io miri?’, is often cited, quite correctly, as a source for some of Handel’s ‘plague’ chorus melodies in ‘Israel in Egypt’ – including flies and lice, hailstones and ‘he led them forth like sheep’. But I imagine not all that many listeners will have heard Stradella’s original music, and hearing these passages in their original form is in itself a cause of fascination and delight; for a sample, try the Sinfonia (track 9). The work takes the form of a conversation between two male lovers and the female object of their affections, and is here sung by two sopranos and a bass. All three singers are excellent - as is the superb Alessandro Stradella Consort, directed by Estevan Velardi, who have already brought us several first-class recordings of Italian baroque music including other works by Stradella.

The complete version of Orlando, considered to be one of Handel’s most successful operas, is presented for the first time on a Canadian label. Singing the title role is the English countertenor Owen Willetts, a rising figure on the international scene. He is joined by the American soprano Amanda Forsythe, and several of the finest Canadian singers: Karina Gauvin, Allyson McHardy, and Nathan Berg.The Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO) is the only professional period-instrument orchestra west of Toronto. Under the direction of renowned conductor and harpsichordist Alexander Weimann, the PBO is recognized as one of Canada’s most exciting and innovative ensembles performing “early music for modern ears.” This recording was produced following Orlando’s performances at the 2012 Vancouver Early Music Festival.

This is a fine alternative to Christopher Hogwood’s period performance on L’Oiseau-Lyre, and will be welcomed heartily by fans of Marilyn Horne. Orlando is a great role, filled with arias and scenes acrobatic, tender, and exclamatory (he goes mad in Act 2 and stays that way for much of Act 3). In l985, when this present set was taped live at Venice’s La Fenice, Marilyn Horne was still in control of her awesome powers–her breath control, fluidity, big, round tones, impeccable diction, and sheer intelligence still astound after all these years. And she’s certainly superior to the nasty-sounding, if dramatic, James Bowman for Hogwood. Lella Cuberli’s Angelica is fine but is outclassed by Arleen Auger; however, I prefer Jeffrey Gall’s countertenor Medoro to Catherine Robbins’ girly one (both for Hogwood again). Giorgio Surjan is okay as Zoroastro and Adelina Scarabelli’s Dorinda is nicely warbled. Charles Mackerras leads with more rubato and larger, more modern forces than Hogwood, but each makes his point. As I said, it’s hands down, really: Horne fans won’t be able to do without this–and Handel-lovers will be pleased too.

Den auf Ludovico Ariosts „Orlando furioso“ (Der rasende Roland/1516) basierenden Stoff hatte ein unbekannter Bearbeiter nach dem Libretto von Carlo Sigismondo Capece (Rom 1711) erstellt und eine ganze Reihe Veränderungen vorgenommen, die Händels Oper zu einer seiner originellsten Londoner Opern werden ließ.
Außer, dass er mit Dorinda eine gänzlich neue Rolle eingeführt hat (und die zu einer ganz zentralen Figur des Stückes wird), bricht das Stück mit vielen Konventionen der opera seria seiner Zeit. So eröffnet nicht der „Held“ die Oper, sondern eine Nebenfigur, der Magier Zoroastro, der zudem noch von einem Bass gesungen wird, wobei dieser Stimmgattung bis dahin sonst nur kleine Partien (oft Diener) vorbehalten waren. Gar eine „Frechheit“ war es demzufolge auch, dass er dieses dann auch noch mit einer heroischen Arie macht. Der Grund dafür war, dass Händel zu dieser Zeit der herausragende und gefeierte Bassist Antonio Montagnana zur Verfügung stand (diesem war letztes Jahr bei den Händel-Festspielen in Göttingen 2007 sogar ein eigenes Konzert gewidmet).

From Australia & introduced to Europe by blues master Dave Hole in 1994, Rob Tognoni delivers a 100% powerfully charged experience with every performance. There is simply no compromise, which is strongly evident in his music. After 20 years his explosive guitar playing and unique songs are now being compared with the greats of his genre and have firmly established him in the European venues & festivals as well as gaining many fans of hard blues rock worldwide. " Shakin' The Devil's Hand - Live In Europe" captures Tognoni at his emotive best. The title track was originally penned from a hindsight view of the legendary Robert Johnson deal at the Crossroads…but also by shear co-incidence can be attributed to Rob's symbolic roots and by his uncompromising, direct & raw guitar energy…"

In the press release that accompanies Michael Chapman's 2017 album 50, the iconic British guitarist refers to it as his "American album." While the material does sound less idiosyncratically British than much of Chapman's body of work, 50 could be more accurately described as his indie rock album. He's best known as a master of the acoustic guitar, but on these sessions, the dominant instrument is the electric guitar of Steve Gunn, who also produced the sessions. Gunn assembled a band of like-minded musicians whose passions encompass indie rock, experimental rock, and the more abstract corner of Americana, and while Chapman's impassioned vocals ride over the top and his acoustic guitar is audible in the mix, the band doesn't bow to Chapman so much as encourage him to keep up with them.
