The group Quatuor Ebene fascinated me with their music since listening to their album Brazil This album Fiction has the similar style plus the bonus of the four lovely lady singers Luz Casal, Fanny Ardant, Natalie Desay and my favourite Stacey Kent. The music and vocal arrangements are immaculate and the songs sung like "Over The Rainbow" and "Corcovado" are familiar to most of us. I would strongly recommend this album for those who want some variety in the classic style jazz music. .

These French classical musicans bring their dazzling performance skills and the emotional intelligence they've gained from working on their historical string quartet repertoire to a sublime CD. The mixture is so rich - from freeform jazz to rearrangements of such American classics as 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and 'Some Day My Prince Will Come' which give a whole new - and sometimes disturbing - interpretation to well-loved songs. But 'Baghdad Café' and 'Lilac Wine' just make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. A wonderful, subtle and infinitely rewarding set. (And in the sleeve photos they just look like great guys having fun!)

I bought this after hearing a chance track (The Beatles' "Come Together") on Radio 3 one morning. Some pop interpretations, many jazz ones, taken from the quartet's off-duty fun pieces which they frequently feature in encores at their serious recitals. All pieces are earnestly and imaginitively arranged and are played with real passion - a really entertaining and satisfying album.

This is a enthralling album presenting some great musicianship. It has however one flaw and that is there is nothing to link the tracks together. As such it is like a sampler or even a demo and therefore it does not fit easily any occasion or mood. I am not sure what the purpose of the album is? Maybe just to show off the talents of 'Quatuor Ebene' and that it achieves. However part of the job of a producer is to tie the whole thing together. Judging by booklet there appears to be several producers and there in possibly lies the problem.
