KRISTMANSON QUATUOR VOCE
The singer Kyrie Kristmanson meets the Quator Voce for a “fantastic extrapolation” on troubadour women songs. Kyrie Kristmanson is a music adventurer travelling between North American folk music and the forgotten memories of the European Middle Ages. In Paris, she met the Quatuor voce, a virtuoso and creative string quartet, founded with the same ideal: the surpassing of oneself and curiosity for what is not part of their heritage. This eclecticism is underlying in all their concerts and recordings, worldwide. With Clement Ducol, whose collaborations range from Camille, a successful French pop singer, to the contemporary music ensemble 2E2M, they explore love songs of troubadour women and revisit these secular lyrical melodies, the oldest of this genre in the music history. Their aim is not to recreate a medieval song as an historic piece, but to melt it in a living process. The result is a kind of endless song caught between the past and the future, an innovative creation in the continuity of the tradition.
