Disk of the Week

Rupert Bottenberg, Montreal Mirror, 22 mars 2007

Hollmer’s a noted Swedish accordionist and composer with a thing for offbeat collaborations, and in the 18 members (plus choir, at points!) of Quebec’s boisterous big band Fanfare Pourpour, he found a good one. Imagine a wild but well-organized mix of Danny Elfman, Yann Tiersen and Balkan brass-master Boban Markovic, and you’ve grasped the sonic circus let loose here-but hold on, the Fanfare is actuellista Jean Derome’s project, so a fair bit of avant-weirdness pokes through too. It’s all in good fun, though, writ accordingly large. (8 / 10)
