Colleen: Les Ondes Silencieuses (CD, The Leaf Label, March 2008)

There’s a beautiful simplicity to these pieces. Each features just one or two instruments, including viola da gamba (buffoon that I am, I thought this was a cello before I read the sleeve), acoustic guitar, spinet, and crystal glasses. They are sparsely constructed but unfussily melodic, and Colleen (aka Cécile Schott) clearly has an intimate understanding of her instruments and of the effects of small silences.

I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Home Listening / Modern Classical / Ambience.
