For all those lucky enough to attend it, the concert of 11 June 2004 during the Agora Festival at Ircam will remain engraved on their memories as an unforgettable moment of grace, an instant of intense crystallisation when, for the length of an evening, we were held in the unceasing grip of naturalness and emotion. This recording tells of that evening. A simple reflection of that sheerly beautiful instant when musicians and listeners abandoned themselves unreservedly to the demands of Jarrell’s style, in music that, here, is as delicate as it is spellbinding.
