Fingerprints Music

"L'étoffe des Rêves was naturally born from my strong desire to work with Marc Copland, so moved am I by his sound and his harmonic language." In this album, Jean Charles Richard's musical, literary and emotional influences have woven a music endowed with rare poetry. From the saxophonist's compositions to allusions to Claude Debussy, from a nod to Mussorgsky to the interpretation of Messiaen, this opus reveals a range of colors and images served by the harmonic science of the pianist for whom these timeless pieces seem to have always been intended. Here the mood is thoughtful. There is nothing demonstrative about these high-flying musicians. Just a sharing, an openness flirting sometimes towards a calm, sometimes gentle, melancholy. The fatal destiny of Shakespeare's Ophelia (Hamlet), also taken up in Arthur Rimbaud's poem, is served by Claudia Solal's precise, clear and gentle voice and the reassuringly and light tone of Vincent Ségal's cello. Diaphanous baritone, harmonies of twilight, in this suspended time the volatile confidences of this delicate quartet are cradled.
