Today we’re listening to Tambour, a classical composer and pianist from Montreal. His delicate acoustic compositions are full of “harmonies of weeping beauty” as Mike G put it. His first release, 2015’s Chapitre I, opens with a ghostly solo piano arpeggio, and then the tracks slowly invite soft string accompaniments. Chapitre II continues the piano and string meditations and overlays other instruments, evoking a dramatic film score. Last up is 2019’s Constellations EP. This one features similar pieces as the Chapitres but mutes the instruments. You feel like you’re in a room a few doors down from orchestra rehearsal. We look forward to an LP from Tambour.
Have a great start to your week.
