    Dominique Pifarély | violin, compo
    Valentin Ceccaldi | cello
    Sylvaine Hélary | flutes

    The figure of the poet Paul Celan hover over the tracks of this record. It’s because Dominique Pifarély is studying his work, his art of counterpoint in his writing, and the dreams which never ceased to inhabit his movement as an exile from the earth and from the language.

    The anabasis is an expedition from a coastline up into the interior of a country but it’s also the rise of the spirit towards the sacred mountain, the celestial world. It can be initiatory, shamanic, and sometime cathartic.

    The deep blow and the scansion which inhabits the work, its special prosody beloved by Celan, find all their sense through the power of evocation, the emotional permeability, the capacity to accept what comes from beyond the codes, and the capacity of empathy which can create the encounter, almost the fusion, the feeling of sharing the same moment with enough force to enable the magic within the music.

    When the music escapes from the body and the mind of the musician and when it’s received by the spectator-listener, a sort of auditory and visual alchemy often (or never) operates and creates a third body, this time invisible. A suspended body, fed from both lives of the musician and the listener, from the hope made of unexpected and expected. It’s as if this third body, almost celestial, undoubtedly poetic, decided to exist by itself, away from all constraints, and hypothetically built from the desire to be united in the same instant. 1+1=3.
