Description
Jean Japart remains one of the great unknowns of the Franco-Flemish school of the late 15th century, despite the fact that the great Josquin des Prez wrote a motet lamenting his death. Japart's music contains unexpected turns and daring harmonies, and his extraordinary contrapuntal skills are displayed in elaborate quodlibets, in which several well-known melodies are skillfully combined. The Scandinavian ensemble Les Flamboyants presents a goodly portion of Japart's complete works, interspersed with pieces by such peers as Josquin des Prez, Jacob Obrecht, and Antoine Busnoys.

"While Japart operated in his known works on a much smaller scale than Ockeghem, they shared an obvious love of setting elaborate musical hurdles that each surmounted with ease…. The popular and beautiful chanson 'J'ai pris amours' [is] heard here in an anonymous three-part setting, a four-part setting by Antoine Busnois, and two four-part settings of Japart … [whose] short, elegant version is a bit of virtuosic brilliance…. The nine-person Swiss ensemble (with mezzo Els Janssens-Vanmunster and tenor Michael Feyfar) is made up primarily of period strings, varies textures and tempos, and produces a spacious textural range that never precludes clarity…. A delightful excursion into the music of a seldom-heard late 15th-century Franco-Flemish composer, whose mastery of polyphonic writing was second to none."—Fanfare
