About

After the success of the first fourteen reissues, which restored to the limelight some of the gems of the early music repertory in the catalogues of our labels, here are fourteen new titles to allow listeners to renew acquaintance with further treasures of the Renaissance and Baroque (and even a journey through time thanks to Raphaël Imbert’s album Bach Coltrane), performed by some of the leading interpreters of the genre; most of these discs won one or more awards on their first release. As with the first series, the artists have been asked to contribute to the booklets, in which, with a few years’ hindsight, they talk about their conception of the works and how they went about recording them. The photographers of the Magnum agency illustrate the covers of the series with their work; this time the common design element is the colour yellow.

In these remarquable transcriptions of Scarlatti sonatas, Charles Avison manages an enchanting metamorphosis that delights us by its energy. Concertini and tutti mingle into a genuine musical dialogue in the spirit of Handel's or Corelli's Concerti Grossi.

"I have nothing but praise for the spirited performances and the high-quality recordings in this disc - this is an attractive and informatively annotated introduction." - Gramophone, May 2003
