Des Canyons aux Étoiles (MIRARE)



For her first recording, Adélaïde Ferrière sheds light on the contemporary percussion. As a remarkable percussionist, and nominated for a Victoire de la Musique award in 2017, she brings out the surprising features of her instruments for an album and a programme that perfectly suits her: radiant, powerful and striking.

Whether she chooses Xenakis or Hurel, Adélaïde Ferrière keeps displaying grace and a spectacular virtuosity: her playful performance is a delight, as much as it is an ode to rhythm and verve. Contemporary music is more alive than ever.


Press Review

Du haut de ses 23 ans, la jeune femme ose pour son premier disque, un programme aussi envoûtant qu’exigeant (…) Saisissant
