"Four artists are gathered for an unusual musical ensemble. 2 pianists, 2 percussionists, 4 keyboards and endless possibilities… The meeting between these women is exceptional: together, they imagined, collected and transcribed — for Ravel — 3 major pieces of the 20th century. Transcribing is always a unique act: it shows artist commitment to translate as closely as possible to its language, the piece's originality and artist desire to relay it to a new audience. Rediscover Ma mère l’Oye with an unprecedented musical ensemble.

19th century was the highlight of the piano while the 20th century is the percussion one. New instruments, "percussional" keyboards… Maurice Ravel and Béla Bartók are the first models. In 1908, Ma mère l’Oye reflects unheard timbres alchemy when Sonata for two pianos and percussion paved the way to modernity. It was composed in 1938 and still stupefies for its incredible nuances. A communal heir, Tristan Murail, invites to a trip through sounds. Travel Notes, composed in 2015 by the french composer, has important Liszt inspirations. Each listener can imagine abstract landscapes which remind them of the tireless romantic traveller."
