Hear: Small Atlas

Two weeks ago, Mario Caroli, Pierre-Stéphane Meugé, Donatienne-Michel Dansac and Vincent Leterme gave the premiere of my new piece for flute, sop­rano sax­o­phone, voice and piano, Small Atlas, as part of the closing con­certs for the Acanthes 2011 com­pos­i­tion work­shops. Their rendi­tion was crisp, ex­tremely clear and — un­sur­pris­ingly — far more in­teg­rated than ‘clean’ re­cord­ings made earlier in the week. Here it is for you to listen to at your leisure. I re­com­mend the free down­load as the streaming audio seems to do some­thing funny to sax­o­phone multiphonics.

L-R: Pierre-Stéphane Meugé, Vincent Leterme, Mario Caroli & Donatienne Michel-Dansac
