Louis Capart & Duo Balance Voyage Hybrid Stereo SACD
Connoisseurs will remember: While English is often the native tongue of
Stockfisch artists, it was Duo Balance who first published their songs in French
and German on this label. Christine Maringer-Tries and Hans-Peter Tries - the
couple behind Duo Balance - have for many years had a deep friendship with Louis
Capart, singer and songwriter from Brittany.
Friendship can bring about marvelous things: It can stabilize peace between
nations (two of the songs deal with Gottingen and Berlin) and it can add
valuable experiences to the life of the individual. And in this case - one may
add - to the life of the listener, who - as usual with Stockfisch - enjoys a
Furthermore, in Louis Capart, he will meet a remarkable singer. The man shown on
the cover is one fine specimen of a Breton: with his expressive, weathered
countenance, he looks like someone matured in the traditions of his home country
and equally at home in the realm of free thinking. The singer Louis Capart is a
philosopher whose themes are life (today's and that of days gone by), love the
meaning of it all and the search for it. He would certainly not be French if,
instead of becoming melancholic, his songs would not show a certain sense of
lightness and grace.
And Duo Balance fits into this music congenially, singing together with Louis
Capart in perfect harmony: in their soloist parts, as well as performing songs
for two or three voices. They are accompanied by some virtuosic instrumentalists
creating a relaxed musical collage. This being so because - as Picasso stated -
art removes the dust of daily toil from our souls.
This SACD is a must for any music-lover's collection and, not only in summertime,
is great to take with you on vacation. And in case your vacation is over, simply
go and listen to the album's great final instrumental track with its ocean
sounds - and dream of a vacation in Brittany, in Gottingen or Berlin...
