Product Notes

Collectif9, well-known for it's innovative programming and it's unique arrangements of the classical repertory, here tackles the music of DeBussy, following a first recording devoted to Mahler (ALPHA770). With Clair de lune, La Mer and Des pas sur la neige, the Montreal collective invites us into a sumptuous theatre of shadows and waves: 'Could we, as nine string players, perform Claude DeBussy's La Mer and do it justice? In a musical style where timbre and color are paramount, attempting to interpret this emblematic work seemed outrageous; but come to think of it, we like a challenge. This is certainly a reinterpretation. Being fewer in number allows us to otherwise reveal a rich rhythmic interplay already present in the work while shedding new light on the balance of voices and harmonies.' A work by composer Luna Pearl Woolf completes the program: Contact, 'a sonic view into the underwater world of beluga whales in the St Lawrence Estuary'.
