Arvo Pārt - Fratres / Hermine Horiot (Adaptation for cello and electronics)

Arvo Pärt Arvo Pärt

Boréales is the second album of cellist Hermine Horiot, recently released for the 1001 Notes label. A vast solo cello trip, in the heart of six Nordic and Baltic countries, spanning more than a century of music. From Sibelius to Arvo Pärt, Boréales goes out to meet geniuses from the cold, with dreamlike, complex and luminous language. The fusion of the cello and the electronics accentuates this dimension, with the piece Fratres by Arvo Pärt, in a new adaptation by Julien Podolak, approved by the composer. At the end of their work for Arvo Pärt's Fratres, Hermine Horiot, and Julien Podolak came up with a live version of Boréales, in which the electronics are fully integrated into the recital in a single breath. During the concert, a duet is formed between the cello and the electronics: a dreamlike dialogue, a sound and moving architecture, different for each performance.
