Composed by Olivier Greif. Classical, Contemporary Era. Classical. CD. Naxos #LBM024. Published by Naxos (NX.LBM024).
2020 marks the twentieth anniversary of Olivier Greif's passing. He was a sublime poet of contemporary music; a genius whose works were admired by his peers. The Chants de l'Ame comprise the special star; a sombre, tortuous cycle, fashioned by his mystical aspirations. Captured at the Musical August of Deauville, it shines forth on this new B Records album with its paradoxical light set to the depths of Marie-Laure Garnier's voice and Philippe Hattat's expert fingers - promising an authentic and poignant listening experience.
