All these stories traced through more than 70 years of cinema, I wanted to tell them, with Michaël Ertzscheid, on the violin and the piano in a two-voice dialogue. Tightening the framing allowed us to emphasize a sound texture with strong emotional power. The intimacy that is thus created encourages contemplation, an unadorned sincerity, as if all these voices came to hum their story in our ears, making us, in turn, transmitters of memory.
