About the album

The title was taken from Boris Pasternak, who wrote music to the text of his poem ‘Muzyka’ allowing the two art forms to fuse. Together with composer Scriabin, painter Kandinsky and others, he was a member of a Russian artists’ collective at the end of the 19th century. They drew inspiration from each other’s disciplines to attain higher realms and bring innovation and camaraderie into art.
Francien and Jesse have drawn their inspiration from this: Jesse has arranged compositions by Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Schumann, Shostakovich and Scriabin as contemporary pieces, while Francien has provided them with texts infused with worldly wisdom. The final result is a series of striking arrangements with exciting grooves and unusual rhythms - written for a remarkable combination of song with string and percussion instruments. Muzyka is a
superb transformation of classical themes into other musical styles, like jazz, folk, flamenco, fado and tango.

"Muzyka" is geïnspireerd door een gedicht van Boris Pasternak. Hij was eind 19e eeuw lid van een ‘Russian Artists Collective’. Deze artiesten haalden inspiratie uit een ieders discipline. Francien van Tuinen en Jesse van Ruller deden dit ook. Jesse arrangeerde composities van o.a. Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Shostakovich en Scriabin als hedendaagse stukken. Francien heeft hier de teksten aan toegevoegd. Het eindresultaat is een serie strijkarrangementen met
opwindende grooves en ongewone ritmes, geschreven voor een combinatie van vocalen, strijk- en percussie instrumenten. Muzyka is een vertaling van klassieke termen in andere muzikale stijlen als jazz, folk, flamengo, fado en tango. Met een bijdrage van Richard Galliano, de Franse accordionist.

Richard Galliano started studying piano and accordion at the age of 4 with his father Lucien Galliano, accordionist and teacher. Particularly gifted and invested, he quickly entered the Nice Conservatory, directed at that time by organist Pierre Cochereau, and followed courses in harmony, counterpoint and trombone. He won first prize in 1969 with trombone. He arrived in Paris in 1975 and met Claude Nougaro, becoming his friend, his accordionist and conductor until 1983.

The second decisive meeting took place in 1980, with the Argentinean composer and bandoneonist Astor Piazzolla. Astor strongly encouraged Richard to...

Astor strongly encouraged Richard to create the French “New Musette”, as he himself had previously invented the Argentinean “New Tango”.
