This album is the fruit of a multi-year collaboration between Mathias Reumert, Anders Elten and composer Philippe Manoury, and includes World Première recordings of Argumenta and Suspension-Effondrements.
Reumert and Elten also present Le tombeau de Couperin in a new version for keyboard percussion instruments. Maurice Ravel’s masterful hybrid — true to Baroque forms but unmistakably Ravel — was written for solo piano and then orchestrated by the composer. These adaptations, in turn, inspired Reumert to transcribe the suite.
