Marc Berthoumieux presents his seventh album, it is also his second Live album. After the warm welcome that the album Les Couleurs d’ici – Live received in 2020, the accordionist plunged back into his archives and offers us an unreleased 2014 recorded in complete privacy during a private concert in a magnificent hidden domain of Poitou.


That year, Marc Berthoumieux performed with Giovanni Mirabassi and Laurent Vernerey. They play everywhere in France, but also in Russia (Nakhodka and Vladivostok Philharmonic) and in Korea (Seoul). In this recording, they revisit in particular the title El Astor (2004) composed in tribute to Astor Piazzolla and certain titles from the album In Other Words released in 2011 with themes by Michel Petrucianni, Pat Metheny, Sting, Elton John but also this timeless melody by Philippe Sarde for Claude Sautet’s film, Les Choses de la Vie, which gives the title here to this new opus.


We know the lyricism, virtuosity and authenticity of Giovanni Mirabassi, this unique artist with whom Marc Berthoumieux has enjoyed sharing the stage for more than ten years. Are we sufficiently aware of the unusual musicality of Laurent Vernerey? Best known for the thousand albums in which he has participated, he is surely the most sought-after bass player in French musical production over the past twenty-five years. This trio exercise reveals it once again in a remarkable way.


The release of Les Choses de la Vie not only gives this trio the opportunity to reform on stage and becomes one of Marc Berthoumieux’s flagship projects for next season.
