The Solal / Delbecq duo, a first-class performance - a new Pierrot-Lunaire - of a unique kind and fascinating expressiveness off the beaten track (All about Jazz). Born in autumn 2013, the artistic collaboration between Claudia Solal and Benoît Delbecq was an obvious choice. It was in November 2015, on the occasion of a tour organized by The Bridge association in Chicago with the Antichamber Music quartet, around poems by James Joyce (with bassoonist Katie Young and cellist Tomeka Reid), that the first concerts took place; back in France, they decided to continue as a duo, and recorded these imaginary, improvised songs based on texts by Claudia: No sake tonight, Inner otherness, Burning green, Ultimate embrace... 

The result of this singular alchemy is a cosmic, timeless song that plays with all kinds of transparencies, a music that is impetuous and powerful, deeply intuitive, moving and stirring.

Hopetown, released by RogueArt in January 2020, received 4f Télérama and a Choc Jazzmagazine: "A radical success", according to Le Monde.
