Elves are beings that are part of the legends and mythology of Northern Europe. Philippe Mathis’ piano piece creates an ethereal soundscape to evoke such characteristics as those of an enchanted forest where the little fairies may live, beneficial to the world. “The Elves” is a luminous work with wild passages and broad melodic lines that create a captivating and hypnotic atmosphere. The harmonies, also, remind the fantastic world of the Elves as seen in modern media such as books, films and – why not – video games.
