French violinist Virgil Boutellis-Taft returns to Carnegie Hall to present his new album Entre Occident et Orient (Evidence Classics/Harmonia Mundi) with the French pianist Guillaume Vincent. Composer Paul Cantelon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Other Boleyn Girl, New York I Love You…) joins Virgil to premiere his new work, dedicated to the violinist.

Western music has roots that reach far deeper than its geographical boundaries thanks to the gradual accumulation of oral folk traditions. Formal music, that is to say liturgical music or music of the court, bears the imprint of Byzantine traditions as well as those stemming from Arabic, Turkish and Persian influences. All of these factors contributed to the progressive development of a common European musical language, which explores and exploits the resources of polyphony, while the Eastern tradition deploys those of monophony and rhythm.

Attraction for the East is an essential leitmotiv throughout the history of Europe, from its ties to Byzantium as well as to Islam, particularly during the Crusades, down to the Ottoman Empire and its vassal states and finally through to the opening of direct trade routes between Europe and the Far East.

In the Baroque and Classical period, “yearning for the East” manifested itself in expressions of exoticism, or a taste for the bizarre, the fantastical and the picturesque that infused all artistic domains, especially those of literature and the arts (and music for example Les Paladins, Les Indes galantes…). is desire developed even further during the Romantic period when the connections between Europe and the Far East expanded rapidly.
