ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Yüz Yüze—“Face to Face”—is a most appropriate title for this recording of intimate duets, based on Bulgarian and Turkish folk and urban music. Yüz Yüze re-imagines and in a sense “classicizes” both Bulgarian and Turkish folk music. The two musicians interpret each music in the light of the other, and apply a subtle overlay of Western musical thought to both. Ariane demonstrates her mastery of modal improvisation and ornamentation, while Yoni’s accordion and especially his piano accompaniment seek to create an as yet unheard classical form of these melodies. While owing something to current and older Bulgarian choral performances, their de-emphasis of motor rhythm sharply differentiates Yüz Yüze’s approach from most Bulgarian instrumental or Balkan revivalist performances. What we do hear are intimate melodies, expanding into space and transcending time.
Walter Zev Feldman, NYU Abu Dhabi

Yüz Yüze, ou « face à face ». Un titre des mieux choisis pour cet album de duos intimes inspirés de la musique folk et urbaine de Bulgarie et de Turquie. En effet, avec Yüz Yüze, la formation Ihtimanska réinvente la folk de ce coin du monde et la rend plus « classique » d’une certaine façon. Le duo interprète la musique de ces deux pays l’une dans l’autre et y intègre une touche occidentale subtile. Ariane démontre sa maîtrise de l’improvisation et de l’ornementation modales, et Yoni l’accompagne à l’accordéon et au piano, instrument avec lequel le musicien réussit à créer une forme classique jamais entendue de ces mélodies. Tout en conservant des éléments du chant choral bulgare d’hier et d’aujourd’hui, Ihtimanska prend une distance par rapport au rythme moteur, ce qui distingue nettement son approche de la plupart des interprétations instrumentales bulgares et revivalistes balkaniques. Résultat à l’oreille : des mélodies intimes qui conquièrent tout l’espace et qui transcendent le temps.
Walter Zev Feldman, NYU Abu Dhabi

Avec cet album, le duo Ihtimanska nous fait découvrir la musique traditionnelle bulgare sous une toute autre perspective . Inspirés par le style svadbarska (musique de noce), popularisé par Ivo Papazov,
on y retrouve entre autres plusieurs airs à danser, principalement de la région Thrace sur des ryhtmes typiques, dont le Pravo Horo, la Ratchénitsa (7/8), et le Varnensko (9/8). Le séduisant mariage saxophone-accordéon (ou piano), appporte une couleur originale, fortement imprégnée à la fois d’éléments traditionnels et contermporains. L’âme du terroir bulgare y est omniprésente, notamment lorsque l’accordéon produit un bourdon,
créant l’effet d’une cornemuse (gaïda). Un plaisir à écouter.
Yves Moreau, spécialiste du folklore bulgare.

With this album, Ihtimanska introduces Bulgarian folk music from a unique perspective. Inspired by the Svadbarska style (wedding music), popularized by Ivo Papazov,the duo plays several dance tunes mostly from the Thracian region with typical rhyhtms, including Pravo Horo, Rachenitsa (7/8), and Varnensko (9/8). The seductive combination of saxophone and accordion (or piano) creates an original color, strongly impregnated with both traditional and contermporary elements. The soul of the Bulgarian village is felt constantly particularly when the accordion produces a drone, simulating the sound of a bagpipe (gaïda). A pleasure to listen to.
