We return to Sunday Music with more on this month’s featured ensemble, the Montreal-based chamber rock group, Esmerine.
Today’s selections are from a 2012 “take away show” (concert à emporter) or informal gig at la GaîtéLyrique in Paris. If you have some French, you can read about this show at the Blogotheque site here & find out why Esmerine’s music is like opening a set of Legos on Christmas morning. But even if you don’t know French, you can certainly enjoy this wonderful performance.
The selections are “Sprouts” from their 2011 Constellation release, La Lechuza; & “Nohna's Lullaby” from If Only a Sweet Surrender to the Nights to Come Be True, released in 2003 on the Madrona label.
If you’re enjoying Esmerine, please consider supporting them by purchasing their music.
