2019 release. Born from the meeting point of the manifold interests of violinist Flora Curzon and cellist Francesca Ter-Berg, the duo's compositions and arrangements are infused with modes and forms from traditional Transylvanian, Klezmer, Romanian, Greek and Armenian music which they have studied for over a decade with teachers of such folk traditions. Fran & Flora approach their reinterpretation of styles and deliveries not by homage, but by interweaving. Threads of deep-rooted musics are neatly and uniquely braided with experimental electronics, ambient drones and vocal processing. The results are simultaneously reverent and authentic, deeply personal and intelligently informed. And poise of those classical reference points, flowing freely and boldly alongside the strange magic of the modern. Recorded by Hejira's Sam Beste, and further augmented with guest performances by contemporary composer, violin virtuoso and horse-whisperer Linde Timmermans and London-based experimental percussionist and improviser Simon Roth on frame drum, Unfurl also features artwork by Oscar winning Lord of the Rings' lead concept artist Alan Lee, a collaborator of suitable pedigree to such a rare work.
