Jérôme Comte, how did the idea for this disc come about?
This album was born of my meeting with the pianist Denis Pascal, with whom a natural complicity quickly materialized. His collaboration became indispensable for taking up the two Brahms Sonatas opus 120, two masterpieces from the chamber music repertoire. The project also stems from my desire to forge a link between the past and the future at the turn of the century. Perhaps this is related to my experiences as solo clarinet of the Ensemble Intercontemporain.
