The best Belgian chamber music performers assemble here with delightful soprano Anne-Catherine Gillet and pianist Philippe Terseleer - the soul of this project - to celebrate the fascinating personality of André Souris (1899-1970), THE musician of the Belgian surrealism. His best and well known works (Clarisse JuranvilleRengainesChoralMarche et GalopComptines pour les enfants sinistres) are placed here beside unknown jewels (Journal du Diamant (Aragon), Concert flamand or the dodecaphonic pocketcantata L'autre voix). A most welcome discovery - a general first release on CD - obviously packaged as a surrealistic digipack!
