France, 1998, modern classical / avant-folk / contemporary folk / Musette

Yann TiersenLe phare: At some points introspective, with dashes of festivity, and at other points joy tinged with darkness. This is an excellent sample of 1880s throwback French folk (musette), heavy on the strings and accordion. Most of the album is instrumental with pleasant little vocal tracks at each end.
