Notes and Editorial Reviews

François Salque offers us his first recital record, an extremely personal project in which he sets out in search of the traditional music of central and Eastern Europe. It is the result of a variety of musical encounters: . with the virtuosity and improvisational skills of Vincent Peirani, a classical and jazz accordionist . with the shared pleasure of creating pieces by young composers (Krystof Maratka, Jocelyn Mienniel, Mathieu Neveol, Kristian Schott, Samuel Strouk) This disc is a tribute to the power of the musical instant: . the moment when the performer appropriates the work to make it his own as Hungarian gypsy musicians do . a joyfully infectious encounter between classical and traditional musics through the association of Read more cello and accordion The contemporary and personal approaches of François Salque (famed for his interpretations of composers like Boulez and Dutilleux, and the dedicatee of pieces by Thierry Escaich, Nicolas Bacri, Krystof Maratka, Jean-François Zygel, Karol Beffa, and others) shed new light on traditional musics and bring them a new transparency. François Salque carries this album from start to finish, yet at the same time it is a collective creation in which the musical text, interpretation and improvisation combine to reveal the sensibility and virtuosity of two extraordinary musicians. Here is universal music which positions authenticity not in a given cultural landscape (central Europe), but in the act of being oneself, in the musician's performance and communicative emotion.
