After the acclaimed CD Lieux imaginés, OPUS prize winner for world music category. Cordâme presents Rêve éveillé, a new CD for the Montreal ensemble with more orchestral music featuring piano, harp, violin, cello, bass and drums. This new dreamlike, accessible and captivating repertoire consists of compositions by Jean Félix Mailloux featuring pianist François Bourassa. Strong melodies and sophisticated arrangements transport us in a musical adventure out of the ordinary. A world at the crossroads of jazz, world music and chamber music.

Pour le spectacle au Parc de L’Imaginaire, le quatuor à cordes Cordâme est accompagné par le reconnu pianiste jazz François Bourassa. Au cours de la dernière année, Cordâme s’est illustré à travers le répertoire de son troisième album Lieux imaginés. Encensé par la critique, le disque est lauréat du prix Opus dans la catégorie : Meilleur album – musiques du monde. Cordâme explore les textures, le timbre et la sonorité propres aux cordes et fait naître des musiques évocatrices, riches en images..., qui nous transportent facilement dans des folklores métissés.

«Extraordinaire disque.» Stanley Péan, Radio-Canada.
