"I will not do you the insult to recall that ‘Pulcinella’ is a character of the Italian commedia dell’arte, clumsy valet who, under a coarse appearance, has more than one trick up his sleeve.
Playing the comedy, the members of this well-appointed Toulouse quartet get on well together, staging their compositions like so many funny, whimsical or tender sketches, whose enigmatic, elliptical or suggestive titles will allow everyone to tell her little story. And if the rhythm of the piece is often hectic, we feel that its inspiration relates as much to the Pulcinella style as to the dreamy melancholy of a Lunar Pierrot. Traditional and avant-garde, wild and controlled, precise and crazy, this music achieves a kind of union of opposites, and this is undoubtedly what makes us appear so alive. But shhh, the show is about to start… ”
