SR226 CD / out of stock
This record, published in 2003, presents ten young Belgian composers, gathered in a prestigious venue, Flagey, and directed by the composer and conductor Pierre Bartholomée.
On December 6th 2002 in Brussels, Musiques Nouvelles celebrated its 40 years of existence in the studios of the former Radio Broadcasting Institute, just where this musical ensemble and pole of creativity dedicated to contemporary music was officially born. On that festive evening, one had the opportunity to listen to old or recent works of pioneer composers of the French Community in Belgium (Pierre Bartholomée and Henri Pousseur, founders of Musique Nouvelle, an initiative in which Philippe Boesmans also took part). On that occasion were also created 10 miniatures, straight out of the imagination of important composers of the French Community in Belgium: Denis Bosse, Renaud De Putter, Jean-Paul Dessy, Michel Fourgon, Victor Kissine, Claude Ledoux, Benoît Mernier, Denis Pousseur, Jean-Marie Rens, Hao-Fu Zhang. These worlds of sound performed by the Musiques Nouvelles ensemble conducted by Pierre Bartholomée are untouched and yours today in the spirit of a creative interpretation and dialogue with the audience. By way of epilogue to this plural album and of opening to other possible ones, we have suggested to Todor Todoroff to add a posteriori his electronic miniature using as a starting point elements of his interactive installation "Mobile Forces" which was also presented that evening.
