François Couturier leads his Tarkovsky Quartet on their third album dedicated to the great film director Andrej Tarkovsky. The two previous volumes, released in 2006 and 2011, were greeted with unanimous international praise; the musical and human experience during the recordings and subsequent tours and concerts revealing the huge potential of the highly original formation consisting of piano, cello, saxophone and accordion.

Following on from the ECM recordings “Nostalghia – Song for Tarkovsky” (2006), the solo piano album “Un jour si blanc” (2009), and “Tarkovsky Quartet” (2011), François Couturier continues to compose music of compelling beauty for his original Tarkovsky Quartet. He continues to draw inspiration from films, but has now expanded his frame of reference. This time, delving into and reflecting the aspect and dimension of the ‘dreamlike’ in works of cinema (the eerie phenomenon of uncertain distinction between real and imaginary, or what André Breton might call a sort of ‘surréalité’), Couturier refers to masterworks by filmmakers such as Akira Kurosawa, Luchino Visconti, Ingmar Bergman, and, of course, revered Andrey Tarkovsky. François Couturier has absorbed and brilliantly set to music the poetic abundance of extraordinary scenes and chimeric characters of that particular film universe. It is once again new original chamber music with its unmistakably own and unique sound texture: very distinct, distinguished, emotionally profound compositions, enriched by compelling, creative collective improvisations.
