More Info

"Sub Rosa presents two volumes of work from French composer Luc Ferrari and his wife and closest collaborator, Brunhild Ferrari. These two volumes are being released together and simultaneously, as a sign of continuation. For Luc Ferrari, this is the first full-length CD to come out after the trilogy Sub Rosa developed with him. What we have here is three substantial pieces: "Programme commun pour clavecin et bande magnetique" (1972), performed by Elisabeth Chonacka, "Didascalies" (1993) performed by Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven, Claude Berset, and Vincent Royer (in 2009) and previously available only on vinyl (note that "Didascalies" and "Didascalies 2" are two different compositions), and another previously-unreleased piece that he held dear, "Les emois d'Aphrodite" (1986-1998), performed by San Francisco's MC Band under his direction. Sub Rosa is also pleased to release for the first time the solo works of Brunhild Ferrari: "Derivatif" (2008), "Brumes du reveil" (2009) and "Tranquilles Impatiences" (2010), forming a trilogy on reconstruction from a memory that is still quite alive. These works are new bricks in the erection of a liberating oeuvre." [label info]



"Programme Commun' collects the first solo works of Brunhild Ferrari alongside three pieces by her husband and collaborator, the revered avant-garde composer, Luc, for the first time in a relationship spanning over 40 years. The first disc presents a trio of Luc Ferrari's works; the pondering electro-acoustic piece 'Musique Socialiste Ou Programme Commun Pour Clavecin Amplifie Et Bande Magnetique' (1972) featuring harpsichord and the clavecin (the earliest surviving electric-powered musical instrument) recorded at GRM in Paris, and written in honour of the socialist reform program; the lush minimalism of two pianos and violon, 'Didascalies 2' penned in 1993 and recorded 2008-2009; a lively and disjointed rock piece, 'Les Emois D'Aphrodite' revolving around punchy drum breaks, ebullient string harmonies, swirling synths and clarinet. Brunhild's trio were composed between 2008-2010 and haven't been issued on CD previously. They include the dynamic, vivid concrte movements of 'Derivatif' (2008); the surreal, between-worlds awakening of 'Brumes Du Reveil' (2009); the subtle microtonal fluctuations of layered tape, 'Tranquilles Impatiences' (2010)."
