Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Au fil de l’art en musique” is a musical companion to the stunning international collection at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art in the new Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace. The sixteen pieces selected for this recording were inspired by the Museum’s 800 works, which include landscapes, sacred scenes, portraits, genre scenes, and still life. The music spans several centuries- from a motet by the late medieval composer John Dunstable to Astor Piazzolla’s tango, “Loving.” Music by Gabrieli, Praetorius, Schutz, Chopin, Wagner, Debussy, Weill, and Rota, among others, were chosen to correspond to a specific era, region, or artistic movement reflected in the Museum’s collection. This release inspired by centuries of fine art is ATMA Read more Classique’s second collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Art, and features performances by such world-renowned artists as Diane Dufresne, Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Daniel Taylor, and Janina Fialkowska, as well as orchestras and ensembles including Orchestre Metropolitain and Orchestre symphonique de Quebec, Studio de musique ancienne de Montreal and Les Voix baroques.

 Illuminating art with music February 15, 2017 By Dean Frey See All My Reviews "This is a sampler disc of recent pieces from the ATMA Classique catalogue, with a twist, which is due on February 10, 2017. In a partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal sixteen tracks were chosen to illuminate paintings chosen to represent the international collection in this excellent art gallery. For example, The Annunciation by Bernat Martorell is reproduced along with an excellent short commentary. The John Dunstable piece chosen to go with the Martorell is Quam pulchra es, from the very fine 2008 CD Canticum Canticorum by Les Voix Baroques: This project shows the wide variety of music in the ATMA catalogue: from Renaissance masters through Chopin to Piazzolla, and the great depth of top quality paintings in the Fine Art Museum's collection. The ATMA artists are impressive; they include Les Boreades, Quatour Franz Joseph, l'Orchestre Métropolitain under Yannick Nézet-Séguin and many others. I was surprised at first that there were no Canadian paintings chosen, but I suppose the Museum wanted to focus on their international collection, which is impressive. This is an excellent project that will reward focussed listening and viewing." Report Abuse
