IL PLEUT SUR SANTIAGO
A film directed by Helvio Soto Music

When Modest Petrovitch Mussorgsky wrote his piano cycle Pictures at an Exhibition at the age of 35 he was at the hight of his creative power. His Boris Godunov completed two years before had been successfully performed at the beginning of the year 1874. in February and March ofthat year the water colours, drawings and sktches of Victor Hartmann were shown at a ehxibition arranged by the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts.

Even though the value of the works exhibited at the time may not have been vey extraordinary, they nevertheless gave rise to a vivid reaction by the friend, Mussorgsky, as he contemplated them and was seized by moving reminiscences.

The present new edition intends to make known the original text by the composer on the basis of the sole authentic source - autograph (the work did not appear during his lifetime and was issued in1886 with certain revisions made by N. Rimsky-Korsakov). And performed by prominent Russian Double Duet «MA.GR.IG.AL» (arrangement Igor Ponomarenko). Part of chromatic accordion (bayan) performed by Artem Kuznetsov, graduate of St. Petersburg Conservatory.

Richard Galliano & Michel Portal – Concerts
   

Quantity
List price: USD 21
Price: USD 15
You save: USD 6 (40%)

The duo of Michel Portal and Richard Galliano has brought us a decade of great mainstream jazz with a unique flavor. It's the accordion that makes their performances stand apart. By taking their audience on a tour of France, Argentina, and other exotic vacation spots, they continue to thrill. Portal moves fluidly with intense emotions, as Galliano supports with a lively foundation. All the while, they characterize folk dances from all over the world.

Recorded 1999 in Hamburg, 2001 in Antwerp, and 2003 in Milan, these three concert performances find both artists at their creative best. They mesmerize their audiences with a captivating allure.

«Giselle» floats gently on rustic clouds, as «Mozambique» dances with an exotic rhythm. Portal employs both clarinet and bass clarinet to paint his colorful landscapes. Accordion and bandoneon provide a quaint «Little Tango» for a different mood. Again, traditional dance remains a major influence on their music. «Libertango», with the same instrumentation, moves gallantly into a broader scope. Tension and release play a major role, as Portal and Galliano pay homage to the music of Astor Piazzolla. «Oblivion» and «Indifference», despite their titles, add considerable emotion to the formula. The two artists revel in letting their feelings flow freely through these pieces. Working before a live audience, both feel at ease with their expressive performances. Always a reliable pair, Portal and Galliano continue to impress with their combination of modern mainstream jazz with an exotic and colorful charm.

Richard Galliano - French touch
   

Quantity
List price: USD 21

You save: USD 6 (40%)

Music likes Richard Galliano, It's obvious. Richard Galliano likes music - all kinds of music - as long as they sing and have the vibe. As long as he can put his own stamp on them, that sunny accent of Southern France, his unique way of marrying jazz and Italian, Parisian accordion musette, feverish Argentine tango, the rhythms of Rio, blues from Panama, Gypsy waltzes… «I’m trying to replicate an inner song in what I play» - Richard Galliano says.

With his accordion, Galliano opens up space and inflames time. In twelve tunes and as many rhythms, with unflagging inspiration and lively urgency, Richard puts original compositions side by side with homage to Hermeto Pascoal, Michel Legrand, and Lucio Dalla. On every tune he plays generously, with no holding back. On the ballads, he knows how to fan the fire of nostalgia, the sweet suffering that «distant closeness» causes us. On the up-tempo tunes, he uses his refined ear and exceptional rhythmic freedom to make the music breathe.

That is, no doubt, what they meen by the «French touch».

Le «Musette» est un mot qui fait peur, peur surtout aux musiciens dits de jazz. Pourtant le «Musette» (java, valse, complainte...) en France, le «Blues» aux Etats-Unis, le «Tango» en Argentine, ont fait leur apparition aux «quatre coins du globe» à la même époque plus exactement au début de ce siècle. Ils sont tous le fruit, la fusion, des métissages humains et culturels: les italiens et les français pour le «Musette», les italiens et les argentins pour le «Tango», les africains et les «américains» pour le «Blues».

Tous ces immigrés loin de leurs pays ont pleuré à travers une nouvelle musique, mêlant rage et mélancolie, aux Etats-Unis ce fut le «Blues», en Argentine la «Milonga», en France «la complainte Musette des Faubourgs» «Piaf est la plus grande chanteuse de Blues» - Louis Armstrong Aujourd'hui je crée le «New Musette» car j'estime que l'on ne doit plus jouer cette musique comme en 1930 et je joue cette musique en y mêlant mes plus fortes influences: Piazzolla, Coltrane, Bill Evans, Debussy...

Ce disque est ma première expérience «New Musette» Je remercie Astor Piazzolla, mon Ami et mon Maître, de m'avoir conseillé de réaliser cette chose avec le «Musette» comme lui l'a fait avec le «Tango».
