Langlois, Jerome - Live au FMPM 2006 / Themes 2 x CDs

"This 2-CD set features Maneige co-founder and composer Jerome Langlois performing live in a number of settings. The first disc is the Molignak ensemble's performance at FMPM 2006. This group featured three ex-members of Maneige, the bassist of Octobre, the violinist of Conventum, the flutist of l'Orchestre Sympathique, and Jerome's daughter Romie on clarinet. They perform material from the Molignak album, as well as rearranged Maneige and Lasting Weep pieces. The highlight is a ten-minute duet between Jérôme and his daughter called the "Rhapsodie Molinienne" which has not been previously released. The second disc includes a reissue of Langlois' 1984 album Thèmes, which is a solo piano concert including material from Maneige, Lasting Weep and some new pieces. Two bonus tracks, the Sonate d'Hiver, are also solo piano performances and were recorded in 1976 in the same era as Lasting Weep's "Albatros" shows. The FMPM concert presents all material in a new light; the Molignak pieces gain from the addition of flute and a second percussionist, and the classic material has been kept up with the times. The piano pieces offer a glimpse into Langlois' compositional process, and longtime followers will appreciate the subtle differences in arrangements from full band pieces."
