Boréales is the second album of cellist Hermine Horiot, recently released for the 1001 Notes label. A vast solo cello crossover, in the heart of six Nordic and Baltic countries, spanning more than a century of music. From Sibelius to Arvo Pärt, through contemporary creation and the rediscovery of unfairly unknown works outside their borders, Boréales goes out to meet geniuses from the cold, with dreamlike, complex and luminous language. Like the aurora of the same name, the changing lights of these music rise from the silence to come to bloom in the ear of the listener. Their colors will be different for everyone, that's the strength of the music.
The merger of the cello and the electronics accentuates this dimension, with the piece Fratres by Arvo Pärt, in an unprecedented adaptation of Julien Podolak, validated 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: slipping between the pieces it creates links, sometimes breaks.
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.
