Product Description

Product Description

Between 1975 and 1983, Jordi Savall recorded five albums including the most beautiful pieces from each of the five Books of Pieces for the Viol composed by Marin Marais between 1686 and 1725. A silence of nearly 250 years came to an end. A repertoire - and even better, an instrument - returned from oblivion. The memory of a composer had never been so closely linked to the performing art of amusician. 35 years after the beginning of this history-making enterprise, the five Astree albums are offered in a remastered sound, that fully rewards the genius of Marin Marais and Jordi Savall. Luxuriously documented as always with Alia Vox - this anthology is a must-have for any Baroque music lover. The HERITAGE collection, launched by Alia Vox in 2007 with Monteverdi s Vespro della Beata Vergine (AVSA9855), aims to offer a fresh vision of the recordings that Jordi Savall, Montserrat Figueras and their ensembles Hespèrion XX, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nations made under the Astrée label between 1977 and 1996. This unique discographic legacy of almost 70 albums, which include the most emblematic recordings of the Early Music renaissance, will be systematically remastered and edited with the meticulous care that has been Alia Vox s hallmark since the label was founded in 1998. Both past and present productions featuring Alia Vox artists performances will thus be available under a single banner, allowing listeners to measure the breadth and continuity of their work over more than 30 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 20 Nov 2012
By JB TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This set of pieces from the five books of Marais is in some ways never likely to be surpassed; it stands as a testament to the extraordinary insight and unique interpretative skills of the world's best known gamba player: Jordi Savall.

Savall built on the learning of his mentor, August Wenzinger, and has been largely responsible for the recent revival of the viola da gamba. Tous Les Matins du Monde - in which Savall's performances were featured - brought this largely forgotten music to the attention of a wider audience, and since then Savall has come to be regarded as the leading proponent in this genre.

The Marais set is not complete; if it were it would run to many more discs, but here we have a selection from each of the five books, originally issued by Astree between 1975 and 1983. The recordings are reissued here on Savall's own label, Alia Vox, and the sound is if anything even better.

Together with Christophe Coin, Anne Gallet, Hopkinson Smith and Ton Koopman, Savall produced here what are surely the definitive performances of these works. We've had many fine recordings since from the likes of Ghielmi, Pierlot and Coin himself, but none has really come close to the aura of absolute authenticity, veracity and sensitivity which we find here. Take La Reveuse from Book IV; Savall finds extraordinary depth and intensity, yet at times his bow is barely more than a feather of breath on the strings; the reverie evoked is all the more overwhelming for being so understated.

In short this is a cornerstone of the recorded music of the French Baroque, but one which has a place in any music lover's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars new enjoying of Marin Marais 21 Feb 2011
By HSIEH CHENG CHUNG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These CDs are reissue again by Savall's brand AliaVox, to collect early Savall's perform Marin Marais in 1974 and 1977, with other excellenent musician Ton Koopmann, Hopkinson Smith--and so on. Althought they were elder products, but reserve the good quality of voices. So as a Marsis fans, I am appreciated these CDs reissuing to me enjoying Marais outstanding pieces de viole. Besides, I must say comparing some of playing Marais, I still think Savall's performance are the most excellent than others, which are often touching my mind again and again, whenever I listenned it. So I recommand it to get it and trust you won't regret

If you like your music surging and powerful this may not be for you, but if you like it calm and peaceful, try Marais, but first go and see "Tous les matins du monde".
