Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Miroir(s) is a jazz recording that pays homage to some of the masterpieces of classical music. It gathers a jazz musician, a composer/improviser, a pianist who writes arrangements, and a classical musician tempted by the jazz demon. As for Ensemble Contraste, the 'classical standards' have a huge number of potential connections that even the composer might ignore such as Mozart's Lacrimosa turned into a Bossa Nova.
