Review of Gabriel Yared

For the release of the album “Impressions françaises”.

“Through their intense and inspired interpretation,
the two accomplices, Michel Supéra and Eric Comère,
take us into a luminous world, an eclectic universe,
going from Bizet to Trotignon,
and at the service of all music.
Congratulations and thank you for your arrangement of Vincent and Théo!”.

Review by Laurent Petitgirard

Composer, conductor and perpetual secretary of the institute.

“It was with great pleasure that I discovered
these French Impressions recorded by Eric Comère and Michel Supéra.
The beautifully controlled fusion of accordion timbres
and alto or soprano saxophones from these two excellent instrumentalists
evolves according to the proposed repertoires, whether they come from classical,
jazz, cinema, popular music or works by Eric Comère.
The technical quality of the two interpreters is at the service
of a very beautiful musicality which makes this original disc
a great success.

Review by Frédéric Lodeon

Columnist on France Musique.

“You will find in this recording many of the riches
of the French spirit: free gaiety, nostalgia,
vitality, clarity, lyricism or rhythmic energy.
The sound alliance of Michel Supéra's saxophones and accordion
by Éric Comère perfectly suits this very varied repertoire,
which takes us to the most touching melodies
from the best popular authors to the most popular plays
great composers of yesterday and today.
The diversity of styles covered allows both performers
to express all the nuances of their expressiveness
and their virtuosity.
I find in certain passages the atmosphere of the Paris of yesteryear
which has served as the setting for so many noir or romantic films
world famous today.
Thanks to Eric Comère and Michel Supera
for these eloquent “French Impressions””.

Sophie Lacaze et Michel Supéra

Et alors que cette compositrice traite les instruments comme la voix lorsqu’elle les utilise, son aînée prend exactement le parti-pris inverse, le saxophoniste Michel Supéra le confirmant grâce à sa brillante exécution d’Episode IV. La symbiose est étonnante entre l’instrument et les trois voix quand le quatuor interprète la remarquable partition de Sophie Lacaze, Je vois passer l’ange.
