CD « Piccolo Concertos » Jean-Louis Beaumadier©2019 Skarbo

Jean-Louis Beaumadier has done more than anyone to advance the piccolo as a solo instrument, having toured on four continents, unearthed a trove of repertoire from the “Belle Époque” or Golden Age of the piccolo, commissioned new works, edited a series of piccolo publications, and recorded 20 CDs. His latest, Piccolo Concertos, is his first collection of concertos with full symphony orchestra, many of them written for him and recorded for the first time. Beaumadier studied with Jean-Pierre Rampal at the Paris Conservatory and then performed for 12 years as solo piccolist in the Orchestra National de France. Until recently, he was professor of flute at the Marseille Conservatory.His playing is always stylish and expressive, with great tonal beauty and flexibility, remarkable control of dynamics including astonishing pianissimo in the high register, and virtuosic fluency . The Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vahan Mardirossian is first-rate, and the sound quality and balance of the CD is perfect.The most engaging performance is of Jean-Michel Damase’s Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, his last completed work. Damase (1926–2013) is well known to flutists for several charming solo and chamber works. His style, reminiscent of Jean Françaix, Jacques Ibert, and Francis Poulenc, is lighthearted and witty, with a sophisticated sensitivity to instrumental color. This concerto is dedicated to Beaumadier; his American premier at the 2017 NFA Convention in Minneapolis was memorable. The work is cast in three movements. The first alternates between lyricism and playful banter between soloist and orchestra; the second rivals the slow movement of Poulenc’s Flute Sonata in melodic beauty; and the brief finale returns to a whimsical mood.Florentine Mulsant (b. 1962) studied composition at the Paris Conservatory and the Schola Cantorum in Paris . Her Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, op. 72 (2017), written for Beaumadier, features close collaboration between soloist and orchestra in its dreamy and melodic first movement and mischievous second movement. The harmonic language resembles Arthur Honegger or early Henri Dutilleux. The score is now available with a piano reduction and promises to become a frequent recital work.Pianist and composer Véronique Poltz tours with Beaumadier. She studied at the Paris Conservatory and the École Normale de Musique in Paris and teaches at the Marseille Conservatory. Her two-movement “Kilumac” Concertino, op. 36 for piccolo and orchestra is the perfect celebratory vehicle for Beaumadier. The title is a combination of letters from the names of her daughter and son-in-law, used as a collection of pitches in German notenames, and the piece illustrates the budding relationship and wedding of the couple. It is a coup for Beaumadier to obtain a commission from Régis Campo (b. 1968), one of France’s most successful composers with more than 200 vocal, instrumental, and dramatic works. He has previously written an attractive flute concerto, “La Tempesta.” His new concerto, Touch the Sky (2019), inspired by a view from an airplane window, is a colorful work in four movements, with a style akin to post-minimalism. Lowell Liebermann’s Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, op. 50(1996) holds a firm place in the repertoire and has previously been recorded by both Sir James Galway and Nicola Mazzanti. Beaumadier captures the great expressive range of this substantial work from the sublime to the comedic. Joachim Andersen’s Moto Perpetuo, op. 8 was originally written for flute and piano and dedicated to Paul Taffanel. Andersen scholar Kyle Dzapo discovered a manuscript in New York containing hints at orchestration, which forms the basis of Véronique Poltz’s arrangement for piccolo and orchestra. Beaumadier flaunts fluid articulation in this performance.Lionel Pons, professor of music history and analysis at the Marseille Conservatory, provides informative liner notes.

REVIEW AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
PICCOLO CONCERTOS

…One selection actually dates from the mid-19th Century. The Danish flutist, composer, and conductor (Carl) Joachim Andersen wrote his character piece Perpetual Motion for flute and piano in 1869 with indications for an orchestration he would never undertake. Beaumadier had Veronique Poltz (b 1963) carry it out and first played it in 2009. Her short piece was then written for him in 2018. The title is a neologism created from the names of her daughter and son-inlaw. Regis Campo’s Touch the Sky was composed in 2019 and is dedicated to painter Patricia Kinard (b 1949). The writing is more about textures than anything else, and the tonal language keeps it all sounding very pleasant. It is certainly not a traditional display piece for a soloist. In four brief movements, it is about the same duration as the two movements that compose Florentine Mulsant’s concerto from 2017. In a thoroughly contemporary language, a slow movement that is partly cadenza introduces a fast movement of equal length with a dreamy central slow section that leads to a cadenza. Lowell Liebermann’s Piccolo Concerto has been recorded before, so although it’s the largest and most significant contribution to the repertory by far, the real discovery here is the concerto Beaumadier commissioned from Jean-Michel Damase before he died in 2013. Written in the three standard movements, it is his last piece. One of the themes came from his opera Columba first performed in 1961. Anyone who already knows his thoroughly French and accessible style knows what to expect. This is an enjoyable program played skillfully and sensitively by Beaumadier. Balance with the orchestra is just fine, and the Liebermann is a magisterial performance. © 2020 American Record Guide

CD Review: Piccolo Concertos by Jean Louis Beaumadier
December 3, 2019 The Flute View

Piccolo Concertos, Jean-Louis Beaumadier

Piccolo virtuoso Jean-Louis Beaumadier has released his tour-de-force album of piccolo concertos with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Vahan Mardirossian, conductor. This is the first ever album devoted entirely to piccolo concertos, and it is an important step in the continuing recognition and transformation of the piccolo.

Most of the works are by contemporary and 20th century composers, but included is a surprise, a concerto, ‘Molto Perpetuo’ by Carl Joachim Anderson (1847-1909). Flutist Kyle Dzapo found the score of the piece, with just a few orchestration suggestions, and Beaumadier invited composer Veronique Poltz to create the excellent orchestrations, brilliantly played by Beaumadier, whew!! Her concertino ‘Kilumac’ opus 36, (2018) is also included on the album.

The other works on the program are Florentine Mulsant’s Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, Lowell Liebermanns, beautiful and thrilling Concerto opus 50, Touch of the Sky by Regis Campo, an evocative, colorful work inspired by looking through the window of an airplane, and the last completed work by the important French composer Jean-Michel Damase (1928-2013). This concerto was written for and dedicated to Jean-Louis who premiered it posthumously. It’s a lyrical and humorous piece, representative of Damase’s unique style, and I hope it becomes a staple of our repertoire for piccolo.

Throughout the album Beaumadier performs to perfection, always with complete understanding of the composers intent and adding his own interpretation, joy and virtuosity. A wonderful album to explore the range and possibilities of the piccolo.

Piccolo Concertos. Jean-Louis Beaumadier piccolo, Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra o.l.v. Vahan Mardirossian. Skarbo DSK3192. Het Franse label Skarbo presenteertdeze cd als een World Premiere: het is de eerste met uitsluitend werkenvoor piccolo en orkest. Jean-Louis Beaumadier heb ik leren kennen alseen hele goede piccoloïst met veelpassie voor het instrument. In orkest-werken speelt de piccolo vaak eenbelangrijke rol en krijgt veel mooiesolo’s toebedeeld, maar minder bekendis de piccolo als solo instrument metorkest of piano. Beaumadier doet erheel veel aan om dat te ver anderen ende piccolo als solist onder de aandachtte brengen. Deze cd is daar bij uitstekeen voor beeld van.Het eerste van de zes (!) werken is het Piccolo concert, met een prachtigecadens, van Florentine Mulsant (*1962), opgedragen aan Beaumadier.

Het Piccolo concert van Lowell Liebermann (*1961) werd op initiatief van Jan Gippo gecomponeerd in 1996 in opdracht van de NFA. Dan volgthet oorspronkelijk voor fluit en pianogeschreven Moto Perpetuo van Joachim Andersen (1847-1909). Ookhet Concertino ‘Kilumac’ van Véronique Poltz (*1963) en Touch TheSky van Régis Campo (*1968) zijnopgedragen aan Beaumadier. Hetlaatste werk is het Piccolo concert (posth.) van Jean-Michel Damase (1928-2013. Deze cd laat prachtig horen hoe mooien veelzijdig de piccolo als solo-instrument kan zijn. Nieuwsgieriggeworden? Gewoon kopen en vangaan genieten!

CD : Paganini Del Piccolo

CRITIQUE DU CD « PAGANINI DEL PICCOLO « 
dans le magazine « the flutist quarterly  »
de la National Flute Association (NFA) octobre 2019

Paganini del Piccolo Jean-Louis Beaumadier ©2018 Skarbo Paganini del Piccolo features virtuosic western European works of the late 19th and early 20th centuries plus two Brazilian works.

All of the composers represented—Cesare Ciardi, Pat-tapio Silva, Joachim Andersen, Joannes Donjon, Luigi Hughes, Mathieu-Andre Reichert, Joachim Antonio da Silva Callado Jr., and Giuseppe Rabboni—were flutists and thus wrote in wonder-fully idiomatic styles for their instrument. Beaumadier plays with finesse, displaying technique, expressive style, dynamic range, and flexibility. Another stellar performer on this CD is Shigenori Kudo, who worked extensively with Jean Pierre Rampal and has won several European competitions. Kudo plays alongside Beaumadier with artistic and technical artistry; it is a real pleasure to hear such perfection in intonation, ensemble work, and interpretation. The outstanding pianists are Maria Jose Carrasqueira, Laetitia Bougnol, and Anne Guidi.

I especially enjoyed the lesser-known Brazilian works: “Primeiro Amor” by Pattapio Silva and “Lundu Caracteristico” by Joachim Antonio da Silva Calado, Jr. The program notes thoroughly describe the works and performers and provide historical and biographical detail. They are also enjoyable to read.
I highly recommend this virtuosic recording of Jean Louis Beaumadier, the true “Paganini” of the piccolo.

Critique : American record guide 2018

This program combines selections from two previous releases, “Brazil 1900” on Skarbo 4092 (J/F 2010: 260) and “Piccolo and Flute at the Opera”, Skarbo 4085 (not reviewed). It consists of salon music by flutist-composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. About the one earlier release, Perry Tannenbaum warned readers “During an attempt to replay this collection, my wife issued a blunt prohibition—and invited me to pass along the warning that this music could drive a dog insane.” He found, “At fast tempos, a clownish carnival tedium imposes itself when Beaumadier’s lightning exploits are prolonged.” On the other hand, “Slower passages are nicely spiced with hints of the tango, only to be dispelled by the pipsqueak fiddle-faddle when Beaumadier accelerates, playing with admirable but inexplicable conviction.”

It’s conviction that certainly comes across through the high pitches and high level of fervor. I have more sympathetic ears because I hear exquisite control and playing that is as sensitive as it can be. Many notes that would scream out have to be subdued with alternate fingerings to allow them to speak softly, and many such moments indicate this judicious approach that only people who have tried the instrument might fully appreciate. The piccolo is so high that any attempt to turn it into something it’s not will fail. Provided you can accept the instrument as it is, there is much music to be made on it outside its ensemble context in bands and orchestras.

The stature of the piccolo has been raised this way only recently. The National Flute Association has been recognizing piccolo players with Lifetime Achievement Awards since 1993, first to Lois Schaefer of the Boston Symphony. Jean-Louis Beaumadier has devoted his career to exposing audiences to the musicality of the piccolo, largely through playing flute music without further changes, as here. The numbers shared with flutist Shigenori Kudo really indicate the musicality of the piccolo playing.

Although the booklet notes could have told us more about the pieces, the information is easily available through online resources such as IMSLP. The assortment of European and South American selections makes for historical and geographical as well as musical interest. © 2018 American Record Guide.

Jean-Louis Beaumadier: Album Review

sweet-dream-260If you wake up in a sad mood, I suggest you put on Jean-Louis Beaumadier’s new CD, Sweet Dream,a joyous album which as Jean Louis says, “demonstrates the lighter side of the piccolo’s character.” The album is part of Beaumadier’s ongoing piccolo repertoire project, and Sweet Dreams is World Piccolo, volume 3. The collection includes works by these composers from throughout the world: Camarguo Guarnieri, Mike Mower, Jean Michel Damase, Gordon Jacob, Veronique Poltz, Flint Juventino Beppe, William Bardwell, Eugene Magalif, Raymond Gulot, and Malik Mezzadri. Beaumadier is a brilliant player, who has brought piccolo playing to a new level of attention and artistry through his many recordings and commissioning of new work. He plays with a beautiful sound, perfect pitch and crystal clear rhythm, always with a joyous infectious energy!! He has some wonderful guest players on the CD including Carla Rees and Gergely Itzes on Alto flute, Magik Malik on flute/ voice, Vincent Beer Demander on Mandoline, Peter Verhoyen on piccolo, Mathier Schaefer on xylophone and Jordi Torrent on piano. They are all expert players who add to the virtuosity of the album. For example, I loved Peter Verhoyen in the humorous piccolo duet with piano by Eugene Magalif and Jordi Torrent’s incredible ensemble playing throughout the album. The final work on the album is Malik Mezzadri’s, Naomi which shows a different side to the piccolo, utilizing flute and flute singing, done expertly by Magik Malik. It’s an abstract atonal work that reminds us that the piccolo had great versatility and that Beaumadier is a master of it all!! You can purchase the album on his website. –Barbara Siesel

Sweet Dream 
World Piccolo Vol.3

Un nouveau CD du piccoliste phénoménal J L Beaumadier – avec des amis.
Une musique légère et lumineuse d’ Europe et d’ Amérique du Sud.
Dans Nr.2, une Sonate de L’ anglais Mike Mower , l’arc se tend d’ un « alla française » à travers de passages jazzy jusqu’ au « fier » finale aux sons les plus aigus.
« Sweet project » de Raymond Guiot , jadis aussi étudiant de Marcel Moyse , écrit une véritablement douce pièce mignonne en 1953 pour piccolo et piano .
« For piccolo » de J Michel Damase est extrêmement brillant.
L’ œuvre de Véronique Poltz « Midnight with Pan »  ajoute encore une flûte alto en Sol pour la formation en Duo .
Les 4 mouvements avec leurs micro-intervalles de temps en temps ont du caractère et de la poésie.

« L’ introduction et fugue »  de Gordon Jacob est un Trio spirituel pour piccolo, flûte et flûte alto en Sol composé en 1947 .
Il est étrange que les compositeurs français préfèrent des titres en anglais, Jacob par contre un titre en français.
William Bradwell combine le piccolo avec mandoline et xylophone et développe ainsi des couleurs de son ressemblantes au gamelan dans sa « Little Sérénade » en 5 mouvements composé en 1953 .
Une tarantelle virtuose pour 2 piccoli et piano d’Eugène Magalif fait le lien à Naomi de Malik Mezzadri (Guadeloupe , maintenant à Marseille), l’ œuvre la plus sombre et la plus « moderne » du CD .
Mezzadri , un flûtiste de jazz connu , inclut aussi la voix humaine dans son duo réfléchi .
“Sweet Dream “ est peut-être un nom
un peu trompeur pour ce CD de 24 Carats.
Mais cela vaut vraiment la peine en tout cas de l’écouter.

American Record Guide le 23 janvier, reviewer Tom Moore

The flauto piccolo is one of those instruments that has a hard time and is not taken seriously (for instance, it ends up being paired with the tuba in duets). Unlike the standard concert flute, it has a rather small repertoire of works written specifically for it (even some of the pieces published for the piccolo were filched from the flute). And almost every piccoloist is doubling.

Jean-Louis Beaumadier makes the best possible case for his instrument with this delectable collection (Vol. 1 was reviewed in 2014; Vol. 2 apparently was not.) Few of the ten composers included are well known, but Beaumadier invites us to get to know them better. I especially enjoy the three-movement sonata with piano, jazz-flavored, by Mike Mower; the conversations, audibly drawing on Ellington, found in Sweet Project by Raymond Guiot; and the Little Serenade by Bardwell, for the unusual combination of piccolo with mandolin and xylophone. Bardwell’s extended work, drawing on Asian idioms, must be the only work for this combination, but it works marvelously well. Beaumadier’s playing is wonderfully musical, with superb tone and intonation. It’s hard to imagine the cold-hearted listener who would not love this record.

critique en Japonais de "Postcards " magazine "the record Geijutsu"Jean-Louis Beaumadier est le seul soliste de piccolo au monde.
Postcard est le seconde volume de la série World piccolo qui présente divers répertoires du piccolo.
Jean-Louis Beaumadier est un grand virtuose, Jean-Pierre Rampal l’admirait et l’appelait le « Paganini du Piccolo ».
Son jeu, splendide et léger est aussi très expressif et avec beaucoup de couleur. Grâce aux diverses formations (solo, piccolo et Pf, 3 piccolo etc.) et aux nombreux compositeurs (Costa Rica, Canada, France, Espagne, Égypte, Turquie) qui ont écrit pour le piccolo, on peut savourer tout le charme de ce petit instrument.

Jean-Louis Beaumadier: CD Review
Postcards, Jean-Louis Beaumadier, Piccolo
World Piccolo Vol. 2

Congratulations to Jean-Louis Beaumadier for his second volume of piccolo recordings from around the world. I love opening up a new CD and in this album we are greeted by a beautiful cover photo that evokes distant lands and gets us ready to hear a variety of pieces drawn from around the world! Beaumadier is an “untiring explorer and promoter of the piccolo repertoire” and he doesn’t disappoint us with this new volume. He says “the program is to be savoured like postcards in sound, signed by performers encountered the world over and sent from Europe, Asia, North Africa and North and Central America”.

Beaumadier has invited many friends to join him in piccolo duo’s and trios, including Andras Adorjian, Christine Erlander Beard, Nancy Nourse, Gabriel Goni, as well as additional instrumentalists on piano, vibraphone, pan, and kaval.
I love his choice of repertoire- many of the works are joyous, humorous and fun to listen to. Opening with a Tango by Vinicio A. Meza from Costa Rica, Trio by Nancy Nourse of Canada, Wilhelm Popps (Austria), more traditional (and fun) works and continuing on with Damase’s Insectes (lots of creeping and crawling), Serge Paloyan’s virtuosic “Vent d’est” (Armenia), continuing on through Turkey, Slovenia, Spain , Egypt and closing with Isabelle Courroy’s “Theme des Balkens” where the vibraphone and kaval are introduced in a plaintive introspective piece with an exuberant close!

Jean-Louis’s playing is exquisite as well as the playing of his colleague collaborators. I’m especially struck by the terrific ensemble playing in all of the pieces. Piccolo players -run out and get this CD, it will inspire you and give you numerous new pieces to learn and perform. Thank you Jean Louis for your beautiful playing, as well as your dedication to expanding and popularizing the piccolo!!!

Le deuxième volume consacré au répertoire mondial de piccolo, interprété par Jean-Louis Beaumadier, professeur au Conservatoire de Marseille, soliste internationalement reconnu - s’intéressant à la tradition classique, aux Musiques du Monde (Amérique du Nord, Europe, pourtour de la Méditerranée) et à la musique contemporaine — réunit des « Cartes postales » avec les noms de dix parmi ses nombreux amis français et étrangers (Europe, Asie, Afrique du Nord, Amérique du Nord et Centrale) traduisant à la fois les traditions et la grande diversité géographique et esthétique. Il est accompagné notamment par le pianiste catalan Jordi Torrent. Ils proposent des pièces aux titres très divers : Tango (Vinicio A. Meza), Verliebte Schelme (Wilhelm Popp), Quelque chose canadienne (Nancy Nourse) évoquant le Canada ou encore Insectes (en 4 mouvements pour piccolo seul) de Jean-Michel Damase, mettant particulièrement en valeur le registre très aigu du piccolo, page descriptive en perpétuel mouvement, exigeant à la fois une haute virtuosité et une précision extrême. Parmi ses amis d’Europe de l’Est, figure Sojar Voglar (Slovénie) avec son Bird Tango pour 3 piccolos et piano. À noter également Thâksim (introduction lors du développement d’un maqâm — mode) de Hany Fouad (Égypte) ; Vent d’Est de Serge Paloyan (Arménie). Par ce second enregistrement, Jean-Louis Beaumadier fait preuve de sa technique éblouissante et son adaptation à des atmosphères et styles très variés. Belle défense et illustration du piccolo.

Dialogue RCF

Depuis qu’il se consacre quasi exclusivement au piccolo, le flûtiste marseillais Jean-Louis Beaumadier est devenu l’un des maîtres internationaux de cet instrument, comme l’avait prédit son professeur Jean-Pierre Rampal, qui devant sa virtuosité échevelée, n’avait pas hésité à le qualifier, dès ses débuts, de « Paganini du piccolo ». Depuis lors, en insatiable explorateur de partitions de toutes époques et de toutes origines, il ne cesse de traduire ses découvertes en concerts et en enregistrements.
Voici donc (enregistré au Stutio Alys, près de Gap et publié chez Skarbo) le dernier CD de Jean-Louis Beaumadier, volume 2 d’une série intitulée « World Piccolo ». Il a pour titre « Postcards » et il réunit en effet une série de cartes postales sonores signées de compositeurs du Costa Rica, d’Autriche, du Canada, d’Arménie, de Turquie, de Slovénie, d’Espagne, d’Egypte, des Balkans, de France évidemment, dans lesquelles la voix charmeuse et virevoltante de son piccolo se mêle à celles des instruments de partenaires virtuoses : piccolistes, kavaliste, pianistes, percussionniste, dont certains bien connus et appréciés dans notre région. Ce disque est une fête – une de plus ! – signée Jean-Louis Beaumadier. En voici un bref aperçu : de l’Espagnol Miguel Galvez Taroncher : « Corredurias ».

Jean-Pierre Rampal

Au cours de son imposante carrière qui couvre plus d’un demi-siècle, Jean-Pierre Rampal a imposé la flûte comme instrument soliste à part entière, aux côtés du piano, du violon ou du violoncelle. Virtuose phénoménal, connu et adulé aux quatres coins du monde, aussi bien au Japon qu’aux Etats-Unis, il est unanimement considéré comme le plus grand flûtiste de tous les temps. Sa popularité fut immense et son influence sur le monde musical en tous points incontestable ; il fait partie de ce cénacle dont le nom est connu du grand public.Lire la suite..

Entretien publié dans la revue Tempo Flûte n° 3

Extraits d’un entretien publié dans la revue Tempo Flûte (n° 3, premier semestre 2011)

Grâce à un jeu exceptionnel dont la portée dépasse le cadre du seul piccolo et grâce à son incessante activité.
Passion piccolo, titre de l’un de ses disques, ne peut mieux lui convenir. Jean-Louis Beaumadier s’est imposé avec bonheur comme un artisan majeur du renouveau et d’une nouvelle Belle Époque du piccolo, défrichant des terres restées vierges jusque-là. Sa renommée s’étend aujourd’hui sur presque tous les continents, où on le réclame. Si l’on demande à un mélomane de citer les noms de grands flûtistes contemporains, sa réponse peut désormais inclure le nom d’un célèbre joueur de petite flûte.
