The present programme finds lautten compagney undertaking an exciting journey through time, a journey that covers three centuries of musical history. Even in the seventeenth century, England’s most famous Baroque composer, Henry Purcell, was already being hailed as “Orpheus Britannicus”. His style is unique in English music, combining, as it does, memorable melodies with groovy rhythms. This was the pop music of London in the years around 1690. The Beatles’ first single was released in 1962. The group soon became known for its new sound – a combination of rock and roll and Liverpool beat music – and left a decisive mark on the popular culture of the twentieth century. By 1970 it had already been disbanded but by then it had acquired an iconic status throughout the entire world and provided a surface on to which a whole generation of young people in the West could project their messages of protest.

It took some nerve to think of coupling Henry Purcell with the Beatles. The Lautten Compagney ensemble has done just that. Good for them!

Since our era has now become so fond of this kind of cross-programming, there is a risk of it not going beyond pure provocation. Very happily for us, the orchestra’s expertise in the Baroque repertoire, combined with its skill in arrangement and orchestration, allows the listener to navigate between the two eras with considerable pleasure.

Henry Purcell died in 1695 at the early age of thirty-six, leaving behind a catalogue of over five hundred works. In the course of his short life, the composer tried his skill at all genres: opera, cantatas both secular and religious, keyboard works, chamber music… His death was viewed as a national tragedy, and it was not until the end of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth century that England again harboured musicians of such renown, with Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Britten. Closer to our time, the Beatles ruled the world of rock’n’roll and pop for a mere decade. For Bernard Schrammek, the Lautten Compagney’s conductor, the master of the English Baroque and the four Londoners “share much more than their nationality, their popularity, their productivity and their irrepressible youth”. Each has excelled in the art of polyphony and in writing memorable melodies.

Asya Fateyeva’s saxophone acts as a common thread running through this two-part programme. The guest musician builds a bridge between the two eras, and the instrument on which she plays, close to the one invented by Adolphe Sax, adapts to each arrangement and regales our ears with equal pleasure.

The greatest success of this Lautten Compagney’s latest recording is, above all, the delicate and natural dialogue taking place between the end of the 17th century and the 1960s. Purcell’s work contains the rustic power of rock, and the finesse of the Beatles’ compositions retain the sensitive spirit of the great Purcell. – Pierre Lamy
