The eaten heart
CAL_9528_200

A strange tale is that of the ‘eaten heart’: the framework of unhappy love affair ends up with a gruesome meal, while the narrative itself sows confusion through a quaint mirror game. The main character in the novel is none other than the trouvère in person, the Castellan of Coucy himself, whose songs make up the core of the narrative.
L’Itinéraire Médiéval offers a restitution of the works of the trouvère. Tournaments and merrymaking, nobility and betrayal spin the web of a love story, from the early flutters of love to the eventual reunion of lovers in death.
The songs and lyrical poems are performed in the original language, but the narrative is translated into modern French.

L’idée centrale de ce disque, qui se place sous l’ombre tutélaire de Claude Debussy : offrir des exemples d’écriture virtuose pour le piano dans des œuvres de quatre jeunes compositeurs français nés entre 1965 et 1975.
