“Après une apparition remarquée dans notre livre berceuses des fées, le tant attendu album du combo néoclassique français voit le jour ! Véritable musique du crépuscule qui agite en nous des voyages épiques et des images d’une rare beauté. Les fragments sont composés de 4 cordes puissantes & hypnotiques (3 violons, violoncelle), de d’un piano ‘Tiersenien’ à la pulse fougueuse et de chœurs féminins féeriques. Un fantastique film imaginaire à la Philip Glass, Michael Nyman teinté de mélancolie à la Arvö Part ou de ‘montées’ à la Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Incontournable pour les fans de musique de film et de magie ensorceleuse néoclassique. Coup de cœur” Arnö

"Finally the long awaited album from French neo-classical combo is born this October 2010 ! Real music of the twilight leading us in epic journeys and images of rare beauty. 'The fragments quintet' is composed of 4 powerful hypnotic Strings (3 violins, cello), a pulsing piano and enchanting female choirs. A fantastic fantasy film in the mood of Philip Glass, Michael Nyman tinted with melancholy to Arvo Part or the powerful rising of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. A must for fans of film score and neoclassical magic. A must have "Arnö

La presentation du nouvel album par equilibrium :

Les Fragments de la Nuit return with their new album! "Demain, c'était Hier" perpetuates their timeless musical quest, blending the radiance of the stars with the dark forces that lurk in the Night.

The French ensemble have kept faithful to their trademark style, in which pulsing piano chords set the pace for the string-work woven by the cellist and the three violinists, haunted by female choirs that surface on occasion. Yet, contrary to its predecessor, which mostly gathered pieces composed over the years, "Demain, c'était Hier" was devised as a complete opus, giving way to longer and more elaborate compositions.

Although challenging in its complexity, "Demain, cétait Hier" is nevertheless immediately engaging, building a vibrant soundtrack to a tale of mystery and suspense. The album holds quiet, melancholy-driven moments - such as those found on Teletemps or Cyrius B, emphasized by beautiful violin solos, or the title track's slow motion waltz - that flow into stirring, violent passages on tracks like Lunistice or Des Restes Vivaces. Halfway through the record, Allegra Aeternae offers an epic crescendo, complete with choir, percussion and French horn, immediately preceding the eerie Marche Nocturne with its wickedly ceremonial atmosphere. Such variety is testimony to the band's ability to take Contemporary / Neo-Classical music beyond its typical standards, by adding to this genre other stylistic references, some common to Post-Rock, Pop or even Metal, and thus bringing together elements that recall the works of composers like Steve Reich, Philip Glass or Arvo Pärt with those of formations such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Balanescu Quartet or even the sinister cult-band Magma. "Demain, cétait Hier" discloses a unique musical universe that takes form in an overpowering nocturnal masterpiece.
