Editorial Reviews

The music of Souvenance, by turns graceful, hypnotic, and taut and starkly dramatic, was recorded in 2014 six years after oud-master Anouar Brahem s last ECM album, The Astounding Eyes of Rita. It took a long time to write this music, he acknowledges, noting that his emotional world had been usurped by the unfolding story of political upheaval sweeping first through Tunisia then through the neighboring countries. Extraordinary waves of change, accompanied by great hopes and fears. I don t claim a direct link between my compositions and the events taking place in Tunisia, says Anouar, but I have been deeply affected by them. New directions for the music find Fran ois Couturier returning to the Brahem group, frequently supported by subtle string orchestration. The strings have a glowing transparency and fragility in these pieces, often providing shimmering texture against which the contributions of the quartet members and, above all, Anouar Brahem s unique oud-playing stand out in bold relief. This double album was recorded at the Lugano studio in May 2014, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

All music by Anouar Brahem
All arrangements for orchestra by Johannes Berauer, except Nouvelle vague by Tõnu Kõrvits.

Recorded May 25-28, 2014 at RSI Lugano
Recording Engineer: Stefano Amerio
