SONNEURS

Offshore/Buda Musique/Socadisc 2017

String and wind quartets are two key ensembles in erudite music. Henceforth, with SONNEURS, a new one is to be added: a pipers’ quartet. Perhaps, one day, this ensemble will become part of the Western erudite music tradition – who knows ?

An accomplished virtuoso present on all fronts, Erwan Keravec brings to light the incredible capacities of his instrument as well as the subtle musical qualities that he has developed in order to bring them into play.
ResMusica (sept. 2013)
Erwan Keravec treats improvisation as a visual artist, as one would treat the blacks in a monochrome, through incisions, rhythm and ways to catch light.
Jazz Magazine (may 2011)
He plays music specially devised for his instrument –music of austere violence, at the same time grandiose, fundamentally modern and often radical, yet never cut off from its roots
Jazz Magazine (january 2009)
