WORLD: World Traditions, CLASSICAL: Contemporary

Quatuor À Vent Scène invites you on a musical journey through epochs and continents. The ensemble’s four members use a dozen different instruments that enable them to exploit a wide range of sounds and a wealth of harmonics. Their repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to this day and age, drawing mainly from ethnic music with forays into the world of film music.

In October 2002, the Quatuor À Vent Scène (Wind Quatuor) released a first album called ''Noël autour du Monde'' [Christmas Around the World] which received a very warm reception. They’re now back again with a wider spectrum of music and an original composition by the group’s musical director - Raoul Cyr.

The latter attracted attention more than once for his involvement in the Laurentian cultural world and his dynamism around the local young musicians. Supported by Yvan L’Allier, Richard Leduc and Michel Dubeau, he invested himself in writing musical arrangements so as to create through their collaboration a distinctive sound. Michel Dubeau’s special contribution and his mastery of several ethnic instruments should not be underrated as it enables the Quatuor À Vent Scène to create original arrangements while respecting the essential origin of the music.

Impressions Diaphanes [Diaphanous Impressions] is in fact a cross-cultural recording. Not quite one culture or the other, it’s rather a very personal rendering of what the Quatuor À Vent Scène perceived in this music from elsewhere. Beyond the notes however, the Quartet gives an interpretation which - like the words in the mouth of the poet - takes on all its meaning through the performers’ vitality. This is not only world music but music which draws people together, people from different cultures who gradually become acquainted in this global village that is our planet.

Impressions Diaphanes will delight you with its refined tracks of variegated origins as well as its sometimes bold compositions and unique atmosphere.

With this second album, the Quatuor À Vent Scène has the wind in its sails and once again blows a breath of fresh air on Quebec’s cultural landscape.
