  • Le sacre du printemps. Les Siècles, François-Xavier Roth. Actes Sud, 2014 | CD
    Live recording of François-Xavier Roth’s orchestra, les Siècles, performing one of the great scores that Stravinsky composed for the Paris seasons of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes before the first world war. All played, as is the Siècles way, on instruments that come as close as is possible to those used at their first performances.
  • Songs of Time Lost. Piers Faccini, Vincent Ségal. No Format, 2014 | CD
    Piers Faccini and his lean guitar picking find a perfect match in his old cellist friend Vincent Segal. The duo drift nonchalantly across genres, covering traditional songs from all over the world as well as offering tunes of their own. The balance of tradition and innovation, intimate vocals and plaintive cello is perfect.
  • Live in Concert. Manu Katché. Act Music, 2014 | CD
    This warm, engaging and melodic album, recorded at the New Morning club in Paris, catches the sense of power-in-reserve that makes drummer Manu Katché’s live shows irresistible. Simple ballads and soul-anthems glinting with Katché’s delicate bell-sounds and slinky grooves.
