Mistisism, rituals and improvisations inspire the new project of Anja Lechner and Franҫois Couturier. Their new album Moderato Cantabile, released by the famous German label ECM, is a collection of original arrangements of works by three mystics left at the margins of music history – Komitas, Gurdjieff and Mompou. Typical for their music is the influence of Eastern folk, ritual and religious music. After ten years of collaboration within the famous Tarkovsky Quartet, the German cellist Anja Lechner and the French pianist Franҫois Couturier create their duo. Each of them has a unique approach to music – Couturier is an experienced improvisator, and Lechner – a brilliant cellist, whose instrument sounds like a human voice exploring contrasting melodies.
