The musical life in the late 18th century’s Russian metropolises still needs to be researched more extensively: With this recording, the musicians of the Altera Pars ensemble impressively demonstrate what masterpieces are waiting for their discovery. This album of works by George, Kerzelli, Facius and Haydn includes world premiere recordings.

The international ensemble “Altera Pars” (in English: Other Side) specialises in the performance of baroque and classical music. The musicians are leading soloists of European orchestras and play using period instruments. This allows for a variation of the line-up from 3 to 9 people and opens up a rich chamber repertoire from the 18th to the early 19th century. In the last four years, the ensemble initiated a much-praised series of concerts in the Oldenburg Palace.

Recorded in the beautiful acoustics of the Sendesaal Bremen.

All that is known of Bernardo Storace’s life derives from the title-page of his sole collection of music: in 1664 he was vice-maestro di cappella to the senate of Messina, Sicily. It is not known whether he was an antecedent of the Storace family of singers and musicians active in England at the end of the 18th century. His surviving music is all contained in his Selva di varie compositioni d’intavolatura per cimbalo ed organo, published in Venice in 1664.

Paris, around 1900. A group of friends regularly meet to share their passion for art. Most of them are artists, but even an aviator and a priest join the group. They gather weekly at Paul Sordes’ apartment on the 5th floor of the ‘Villa du Phénix”, Ruedu Long, where they make music, recite their poems and discuss art until the middle of the night. ‘Les Apaches’ they call themselves after a notorious Parisian gang, prowling around the district. Word has it that the group of friends rumble the streets in an ecstatic mood after visiting the theatre, when they completely overlook a paperboy. A collision follows and the boy shouts: “Attention Les Apaches!” The friends, who regard themselves as artistic outcasts, adopt the name immediately.

The group exists of, amongst others, composers such as Maurice Ravel, Déodat de Séverac, Igor Stravinsky, Maurice Delage and Manuel de Falla, pianist Ricardo Viñes, poet Tristan Klingsor and painter Paul Sordes. This release is a tribute to the group.
