Release description: This album was previously released by label Humming Conch (Berlin), thanks to Christian Roth.

"The focus on "Poèmes saturniens" is melancholia without any doubt and from the first tune. Christian Vasseur created 10 highly emotional, warm and beautiful pieces of classical-orientated guitar music. Not as separated songs, more like a journey or dance.

Melody fragments come and go like moods or thoughts, some return like memories or reminders, some fade away and are gone forever. Most of the time, "Poèmes saturniens" is a very reserved and fragile work. But in some situations it gets loud, explosive, improvised and noisy. Just like a unexpected mood swing.

For me, the earlier mention of dance is a good image to get this wondeful piece of music. It is very fragile and balanced on the one hand, but also highly dynamic and expressive."
Christian Roth (Humming Conch)
