About the album

Ten years after their first highly estimated Cage CD 'Works for Percussion' (WER 62032), Quatuor Hêlios are presenting a second one with works by the inventor of the prepared piano. In the wake of this process comes the series of the five 'Imaginary Landscapes'. 'Credo in US' is another heroic work, particularly in the ambiguity of its title: is Cage patriotically referring to the United States, or is he simply humanistically proving allegiance to the first person plural? And then again, doesn't this Credo relate to the 1937 manifesto whose title it reflects? Collages, layerings and overlaps clash with omnipresent wild and scattered piano bits, strewn with explosions and streaked with silences that are in themselves aggressive. In 'Inlets', the performers do offer Nature what we could call a choice gift: letting it do the composing ... The crackling fire or the water gurgling in the conches redefine music! Quatuor Hêlios has always been open to collaboration with composers in order to develop new contemporary percussion languages, often associating 'classical' instruments, new technologies and musical theater.
