For her second solo album, Célia imagined a program apposes Philip Glass’ five “Métamorphoses” next to Maurice Ravel’s five “Miroirs”. “Number 1”, composed by Camille Pépin as a tribute to Jackson Pollock, concludes this album as a tip of the hat to Glass and to American minimalists, who are a great source of inspiration to the young composer.
This album flirts with the frontiers of an hypnotic trance, and takes us far into a never-never land.
Songs of Hope
Forming a powerful duo on stage for several years, Marie-Laure Garnier and Celia Oneto Bensaid have recorded their first album for NoMadMusic. An ingenious mix of works by Olivier Messiaen, Francis Poulenc and Negro-spirituals, this album sings of the sacred and of hope to celebrate a mixed society, rich in its multiple cultures.

The Walker of Lovers
All year round the abbey of Royaumont in partnership with the Musée d’Orsay welcomes young duos who, alongside undisputed masters of lied and melody (Véronique Gens etc.), forge their musical complicity. Thanks to this fruitful alliance between two friendly institutions, beautiful combinations of music and visual arts are played out. B Records invites you, by inaugurating this new collection, to capture the friendship between spirits, geniuses, and the arts, with a first disc that will lead you blithely from Schumann to Ravel, from the most languorous German romanticism to French poetry the more pungent.
