3rd solo piano album
"The project is contained in the title : to go to the essence. Alone at his piano, Xavier Harry slowly descends to the bottom of the visible and invisible worlds with as much assurance as humility. He plays six compositions, each of which marks a milestone of this journey, the soul, the suffering, the tears, the spirit, the illusions and the hope. Here, philosophy does not weigh, it liberates, delights, takes blues turns, interweaves haunting ostinati, impressionists harmonies and reaches us in our own emotional depths, generating long shivers of pain and gratitude mingled.
