Adamcyk - Devant l'azur

The Radio-Canada web site has a recording of the premiere of David Adamcyk's Devant l'azur, which was premiered last month during a concert by the SMCQ. The piece written for soprano, tenor saxophone and piano was performed by Julieanne Klein (soprano), Zasha Di Castro (piano) and tenor saxophonist Adam Kinner

Other pieces also available to listen to from that particular concert, which was part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of Quebec composer Gilles Tremblay's career include a solo piano piece by one of Tremblay's former student, Michel Gonneville and thee works by the master himself: Solstices ou Les jours et les saisons tournent (1971), Musiques de l'eau (2008), and Envoi (1982). The SMCQ (Société de Musique Contemporaine du Québec) is conducted by its musical director (a composer and sax player himself) Walter Boudreau.
