is a perfect CD of music for everybody - for a variety of temperaments,
for all ages and all occasions. It can be carefully listened to
(being a CD which has been produced with much care) or appreciated
just as background music, or by paying more attention to the music
itself and to the vocals (addressing itself to all adult listeners).
One could call the music "POP"
(meaning "popular" music) based above all upon melody.
The melody is of great fascination and great communication always
guided by the accordion or the great voice of Lydie. In some pieces
(for example "Der vierte Mann"), the rhythm and modern
setting seem to contrast the prominent melody. Personally I believe
that these situations can produce something outstanding with much
character. Lydie is a leader: all the art applies to her personality
and the sound of her accordion (always equal and steady - as if
being her voice), just as well as all her vocals in French language.
This has surprised me a lot: as having at her disposal an instrument
such as the accordion, Lydie always adopts her tone-colour, that
becomes nearly her personal identity of sonority.
One day I hope to be able to meet
her personally in order to ask her about this choice.
In this CD, there is also a good
part dedicated to the Latin American inspiration; but also in
these pieces the "Latin American" melody is in evidence
but the base remains always that of a "song". A perfect
CD of music for everybody - for a variety of temperaments, for
all ages and all occasions.
