Product description

Product Description

When he published his two 'Apothéoses' in memory of Corelli and Lully in 1724-25, François Couperin was asserting his desire to promote a meeting of the French and Italian styles albeit from a very Gallic point of view. The idea was to convince the French Muses that henceforth one could say sonade and cantade, ie in their own language, a strategy already pursued in the much earlier 'La Sultane' and 'La Superbe'. Far from blindly imitating his idols, Couperin takes inspiration from their styles and adapts them to his own. The result is a delight for all to share with the musicians of Gli incogniti and Amandine Beyer, whose first recording for harmonia mundi this is. The ensemble founded by Amandine Beyer in 2006 takes its name from the Accademia degli Incogniti, a musical society active in Venice in the 1630s. The choice of name was motivated by the group s taste for the unknown in all its forms, whether this involves experimentation with sonorities, exploration of new repertory, or rediscovery of the classics . The primary aim of its approach founded on the pleasure of a union of tastes (the goûts réunis dear to François Couperin), achieved through collective work, is to convey to its listeners a committed and cohesive vision of the music it tackles. Gli Incogniti's first recordings, devoted to the violin concertos of Bach and Vivaldi, were immediately singled out for mention by the international press. After music by Nicola Matteis and Johann Rosenmüller, in 2013 the ensemble released a new version of Corelli s celebrated Concerti Grossi Op.6 that was awarded a Diapason d Or of the year (Zig-Zag Territoires).

Review

These are lively, elegant performances that capture the subtlety of Couperin without affectation or special effects ... Though hardly the only recording of these works, Gli Incogniti s should be considered among the best. --Julie Anne Sadie Gramophone, November 2014
