Composed around ten years apart, the preludes of the young Messiaen and of the artistically established Debussy show some amazing similarities, down to the poetry and mysticism of their titles.

For her first solo album with NoMadMusic, Célimène Daudet has created an imaginary connexion between the two composers, juxtaposing their works in order to emphasise their kinship.

Here are twenty preludes in the shape of soundscape postcards, twenty miniatures at the border of Impressionism, like so many snapshots of life and dreamlike evocations, from dead leaves in autumn to an imagined journey to Spain, from the thousand colours of fireworks to the sadness of a desolate landscape…

Some say that you have to reach a great maturity before daring to attack it. For her first solo album, Anna Göckel assumes with great temperament her choice to record one of the founding texts of the violin repertoire: Sonatas and Partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach.

A personal reading of a masterpiece so rich and dense that the young violinist imagines continuing to explore throughout his life … and why not re-record in a few years?
