New Alia Vox Heritage releases

New Alia Vox Heritage releases

03/01/2008

Previously on this website, we announced the new Alia Vox series “Heritage”, which will include part of the Astrée-Auvidis catalogue that Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras recorded from the mid-1970s to the end of the 1990s with Hespèrion XX and La Capella Reial de Catalunya. Of the 70-plus recordings acquired for this series, we can now list the titles that have been re-mastered and will be re-released in 2008 at a special price and with the meticulous presentation that characterises Alia Vox.
The titles selected for this first Heritage series are sure to be a hit with all Savall enthusiasts, as they were no longer on the catalogue and had become almost impossible to obtain. Those who were not able to purchase the original albums will no doubt be tempted not only by the sumptuous presentation of this re-release, but also and more particularly by the re-mastering of the original tapes, the freshness, naturalness, sonority, depth and realism of which are perfectly captured in this SACD version - qualities which were not always fully reflected in the earlier CDs.

When they first appeared, these recordings were enthusiastically acclaimed by the critics and came to be regarded as landmark recordings in their respective repertoires. It would be inappropriate to single out any one interpretation, but judging from Alia Vox’s mailbox, there is huge interest in Jordi Savall’s recordings of music by Marin Marais, Sainte Colombe and François Couperin. The re-release of the collection entitled “Le parnasse de la viole” therefore represents a rare luxury.
This series thus marks the fulfilment of one of Jordi Savall’s long-time dreams, as well as providing a service to all those who have endeavoured to obtain these recordings of which the maestro himself is so fond.
