About the album

The pieces of this disc - two cycles of melodies, two trios and a string quartet written between 2014 and 2017 - resonate to form a united and coherent frame that paints a portrait of the work of this young composer to the already brilliant course . To do this, he surrounded himself with some of the best musicians of his generation, such as Yan Levionnois (ffff Télérama for his Bach recording), Guillaume Vincent and Jeanne Crousaud. The four members of the Debussy Quartet, benevolent elders, also officiate in his String Quartet, his first, located in direct line with the Schnittke or Olivier Greif quartets. Clear of any form of chapel and ideology, Matton definitely turns the page of the last century. His Songs on poems by Michel Houellebecq embark us in a centrifugal whirlpool that leaves no voice. At the end of the album, his trio and his cycle on poems by Philippe Jaccottet are as many "scrapes administered with the jubilation of a willingly tyrannical satyr", as the author of the libretto so aptly writes.

Fondamenta’s CDs and DVDs engulf you in musical emotion. This is because nothing is left to chance, from the concert hall to the choice of instruments, from the equipment involved to the expertise used to put them to their full advantage. Since sound systems and the habits of music lovers differ, Fondamenta’s innovation is to offer two different recordings for each acoustic album–at the same price–to maintain the quintessential quality of our products, whatever your needs:

The Fidelity CD is the version of reference for high-fidelity audio systems.

The Mobility CD is the version adapted for computers, nomad and car sound systems.

Die Stücke dieses Albums - zwei Melodienzyklen, zwei Trios und ein Streichquartett, die zwischen 2014 und 2017 entstanden sind - bilden einen einheitlichen und zusammenhängenden Rahmen, der das Werk des jungen Komponisten in einem ohnehin brillanten Verlauf porträtiert. Dazu umgab er sich mit einigen der besten Musiker seiner Generation, wie Yan Levionnois (ffff Télérama für seine Bach-Aufnahme), Guillaume Vincent und Jeanne Crousaud. Die vier Mitglieder des Debussy Quartetts, wohlwollende und ältere Mitstreiter, sind ebenfalls in seinem ersten Streichquartett tätig, das in direkter Linie zu den Quartetten Schnittke oder Olivier Greif steht. Frei von jeglicher Form von Ideologie, schlägt Matton definitiv die Seite des letzten Jahrhunderts um.
Fondamentas CDs und DVDs versetzen Sie in musikalische Emotionen. Denn nichts wird dem Zufall überlassen, vom Konzertsaal bis zur Auswahl der Instrumente, von der Ausstattung bis zum Know-how, mit dem sie voll zur Geltung kommen. Da sich die Soundsysteme und die Gewohnheiten der Musikliebhaber unterscheiden, ist die Innovation von Fondamenta, zwei verschiedene Aufnahmen für jedes akustische Album anzubieten - zum gleichen Preis - um die Quintessenz unserer Produkte zu erhalten, was auch immer Ihre Bedürfnisse sind: die Fidelity CD ist die Referenzversion für High-Fidelity-Audiosysteme, die zweite Version für Computer, Nomaden und Autotonanlagen...

His discography also includes a recording of Rachmaninov's second Elegiac Trio with Renaud Capuçon and Denis Kozhukhin, in the “Martha Argerich and Friends” festival, for EMI classics, as well as “Pierrots Lunaires”, a violin and cello duets cd with violinist Mélanie Clapiès, released in 2014 for Fondamenta.

An ardent defender of the music of his time, he has worked with composers such as Kryštof Mařatka, Jonathan Harvey, Richard Dubugnon, Martin Bresnick, and Eric Tanguy.

Yan Levionnois began studying the cello with his father before continuing in Paris with Marc Coppey and Philippe Muller, Oslo with Truls Mørk, and New York with Timothy Eddy. He also attended master-classes with Gary Hoffman, Heinrich Schiff, Natalia Gutman, Frans Helmerson, Steven Isserlis, and Natalia Shakhovskaïa.

The stunning trio immediately sets in with a captivating romantic theme that sways back and forth between the violin and the cello.
Kerk & Leven, 23-10-2018

We discover a composer who writes powerful melodies and who, although he ventures to 'heavy' themes, never happens to be bombastic. The vocals are excellent as are the various instrumentalists.
