Dominique Pifarély's quartet, with long-time musical companions Chevillon and Merville and newer associate Antonin Rayon, provides a marvelous context for the full range of the French violinist's expression. Pifarély thrives in the unstable territory between improvisation and composition. His pieces here establish ideas, structural elements and themes – provisional traces – to encourage textural, lyrical and abstract improvising to develop energetically in the moment. The interplay amongst the players is consistently dynamic and engaging, and Pifarély is inspired to some of his finest soloing. Tracé Provisoire was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France in July 2015.
