Barbarossa… the man, the empire… A strange kingdom was this Holy Roman Empire, reaching from the North Sea to Sicily… And what a strange character this Frederick the 1st, known as Redbeard (Barbarossa): monarch of a domain with no capital.
La Mandragore paints a musical portrait of the era of Barbarossa (Germany, France, and Italy, XIIth-XIIIth c.): excerpts from the Carmina Burana, the Laudario di Cortona, various French manuscripts, and from the work of Hildegard von Bingen. In this third album, Mandragore leaves the Mediterranean for new
horizons. But the originality and energy for which they are known are only increased with the addition of new sounds and new collaborators.
The XtractHD process relies mainly on the fact that a computer is not a musical instrument… By getting rid of most computer processes and external hash, Fidelio gets one closer to the real recording session, restoring stereo spread, spatial positioning, preserving hall characteristics and the timbre of each instrument.
