Order 2-CD Set

ECM debut for Swiss-born and New York-based pianist Sylvie Courvoisier in a wide ranging programme of written and spontaneously-created chamber music. On CD 1 the musicians play Courvoiser’s compositions (which have been compared, by the French press, to Messiaen’s); on CD 2 they improvise together. All three musicians, however, have such a strong sense for structure that the music sings with one voice, irrespective of the modus operandi employed.
