QUATUOR ALFAMA CARRERE
Death and the Maiden, a masterpiece of the romantic repertory for string quartet, this album associates the gentle melancholy that impregnates Schubert’s lieder as arranged and reappropriated by Jean-Luc Fafchamps : here is an atypical cycle of melodies as a kind of progressive contamination of the Viennese master’s music by sounds taken from the Belgian composer! From harmonic modifications to the addition here and there of some twentieth-century instrumental techniques we are starting a conversation with Franz Schubert- a desire for melancholy and a tender sorrow. The Alfama Quartet is entirely open to these new encounters, inviting Albane Carrere’s pure and touching voice to join.
