FANFARE POURPOUR and LARS HOLLMER: Karusell Musik
Convened in Canada with master saxophonist and composer, Jean Derome, this large (in the late teens) ensemble of winds, strings, some voices and accordion (giving the instrument a good name for a change) plays a luminous programme of Lars Hollmer’s epidemical tunes – amazingly well. A flawless record of simple sounding, technically complicated music, beautifully arranged and played by the cream of Montreal’s musical community, this is that rare thing, a cheerful, upbeat and timeless celebration of music free of ideology or angst. Much needed.
