Veronique Mathieu's Argot is a spectacular demonstration of her abilities as a violinist, as well as the dramatic range of her instrument. The recording embodies the definition of its title - Argot, whcih means teh language of a particular group in two meaningful ways. First, Mathieu has selected a unique array of violin-centric works that illuminate the creative strengths of twentieth century modernist composers. Second, as a result of the album's daring program and Mathieu's incredible talents, listeners enjoy the opportunity to hear every nuance of the violin's expressive vocabulary executed at the highest possible level. Argot focuses on compositions by three titans of twentieth century european modernism: Franco Donatoni, Pierre Boulez, and Witold Lutoslawski. Donatoni's Argo: Due pezzi per violono not only gives the album its title, but also serves as one of two solo violin works on the album, alongside Boulez's Anthemes 1 pour violon seul. These pieces reveal the depths of Mathieu's virtuosity, as she delivers deeply human and emotive performances of these notably technical and demanding works. In Mathieu's rendering of these compositions, every corner of the violin's sound world is both exploited and imbued with significance. Some might think that any piece written for solo instrument must be limited in what it can express, but, with that instrument in Mathieu's hands, this theory is thoroughly disapproved as neither Donatoni nor Boulez's compositions submit to its tenets. On the contrary, Mathieu's expert performances turn these works' intricate gestures and motives into the foundation of compelling musical narratives with which the listener cannot help but become enchanted.
