For 20 years Timpani have consistently released essential French repertoire from the late 19th Century to today. This journey is punctuated with over two hundred creations, with releases as eminent as Pierné's Cydalise et le chèvre- pied — which earned the label the «Record of the Year» distinction at the Midem Awards — operas such as Ropartz's Le Pays or Jean Cras' Polyphème, Pierné or Honegger's complete chamber music works, but also the monumental tributes to the symphonic works of Maurice Ohana or Iannis Xenakis. Timpani is committed to stay rooted in the music of its time, as evidenced by the latest record devoted to Ivo Malec with a work written and created in the 21st Century. Timpani's catalogue comprises some great names:
Voices like Mireille Delunsch, Sophie Marin-Degor, Yann Beuron, Jean- Sebastien Bou or Laurent Naouri, conductors such as Emmanuel Krivine, Arturo Tamayo, Jacques Mercier, Lionel Bringuier, chamber musicians like the Sine Nomine Quartet or the Stanislas Quartet, orchestras such as Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Orchestre National de Lorraine or Orchestre de Bretagne, and soloists like Christian Ivaldi, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Sonia Wieder-Atherton, Gérard Caussé, Raphaël Oleg, Henri Demarquette, Alain Jacquon, Billy Eidi among many others.
