Notes and Editorial Reviews

'I have never composed so much in my life. If I ask myself the reasons for such profusion, I realize that it is because I have nothing else in my life but music. If I stop composing, I die.' Olivier Grief wrote after finishing his trios in 1998. This CD presents two deeply moving works by a true citizen of the world, indifferent to the aesthetic confrontations that marked the half-century of his life. 1950-2000: between these two dates lay 'a convoluted path through shadows and light, where hope and despair are intertwined like two lianas issuing a single stump.' (Brigitte François-Sappey) 'I have never composed so much in my life. If I ask myself the reasons for such profusion, I realize that it is because I have nothing else in my life but music.
