Simaku’s Soliloquies: Visionary, Virtuosic, Vibrant

Thomas Simaku’s new album on NMC Recordings, featuring soloists of Ensemble Intercontemporain (Jérôme Comte, Dimitri Vassilakis, Aurélien Gignoux, and Clément Saunier), has received a brilliant review in Crescendo Magazine in Brussels. 

Reviewer Bernard Vincken describes the new disc as "out of the ordinary" and the soliloquies as "visionary, virtuosic, vibrant" and which "bring out the instruments' expressive and technical characteristics, to the point of  drawing up a detailed identity card – an idiosyncratic musical portrait that is thorough, virtuosic and yet free of excessive formalism".
