Info for Poetical Humors

Unexpected? The pairing of viola da gamba and accordion is certainly that! But perhaps even more surprising is how well the singing strings of the veteran instrument harmonize with the subtlyvibrating reeds of the centuries-younger newcomer.

Also unexpected is this cross-generational meeting of two musicians (what are the odds?) who found each other exploring the ‘poetical humours’ of early-Seventeenth-century England.

Recently reunited in the recording studio after several seasons of rapturously received recitals, with this well-timed album the duo Les inAttendus makes its first entry into the harmonia mundi catalogue.

He graduated from the Sibelius Academy (class of Matti Rantanen), the Paris Conservatoire CNSMDP and the Paris-Sorbonne University. A laureate of the Arrasate-Hiria international competition, and finalist at the Gaudeamus Interpreters competition in Amsterdam, he is the first accordionist in France to have ever completed a PhD in Music Performance, with a research on the Accordion contemporary repertoire in Europe since 1990 under the supervision of Laurent Cugny and Bruno Mantovani.
