A special recording from a new group led by François Couturier. “Nostalghia – Song for Tarkovsky” is the first ‘leader’ album issued under Couturier’s name in many years. Apart from a handful of duo recordings (including “Poros” with Dominique Pifarély for ECM nine years ago), his energies have long been invested in the musical concepts of others. A generous, thoughtful, lyrical player, he has worked particularly closely with Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem in the last decade, joining Brahem’s trio on “Le pas du chat noir” (recorded 2001) and appearing on its sequel, “Le voyage de sahar” (2005). Couturier and accordionist Jean-Louis Matinier (also heard on “Nostalghia”) have had an important role to play in Brahem’s new musical directions.

In 2004, with Vassilis Tsabropoulos, she recorded music of Gurdjieff (“Chants, Hymns and Dances”), a project with historic-philosophical links to the present disc: Tarkovsky’s “Andrei Rublev” was Gurdjieff-inspired.

François Couturier was born in Fleury-les-Aubrais, near Orléans, in 1950, and began playing piano at the age of six. After completing studies in classical music and musicology in the early 1970s, he began improvising in earnest, initially taking his cue from modernists P...
