Tristan Murail is one of the greatest sound wizards in recent music history. His cycle Portulan was inspired by his own memories: places with special significance, objects, encounters, experiences, and so forth. He draws an intimate and understated map of his past, sliding from one nuance to the other. It is not-to-be-missed music for explorers, written for violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, French horn, piano and percussion. It probably won’t be long before you’re on the edge of your seat – trying to hear everything even better.
