TRACK of the DAY Éclats for Ornette by Sylvie Courvoisier and Mark Feldman
Issuing label Intakt have had a great run of releases oh for ages and this sparkling piano-violin duo recording is the latest in line, Time Gone Out is released next week. Crossing all sorts of boundaries between improvised music and what could to some sound just as easily “contemporary classical” ‘Éclats for Ornette’ one of the two tracks available pre-release fizzes with energy and daring while ‘Homesick for Another World’ harnesses a raw elegiac sense to its great advantage.
