About Ysaÿe Records
It might seem a surprisingly ambitious move for musicians who have hardly strayed from their field of performance to start up a new recording company. It is nevertheless a logical progression. By performing music, an instrumentalist creates sound for the listener, and there is surely no better means to provide the ideal colour than to work on it oneself. In fact, this was a dream that goes back a long way. As we recorded more and more, another dimension came to the fore – that of providing the public with a repertoire that corresponded to our work and increasing maturity or, in other words, of constituting our own discography.
Having at last found our feet, we were able to pursue the resulting freedom and independence with the aid of people and institutions. The Abbaye de l'Epau opened their doors wide to us. Those in charge listened to our projects and were happy to embark on this rather unusual adventure with us, for which we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude.
