Yuriy Mynenko (countertenor), Jean-Paul Fouchécourt (countertenor)

Orquestra Gulbenkian

With a well-established reputation in orchestral writing, following his recent opera Charlotte, Marc-André Dalbavie further demonstrates his great talent for vocal writing in SONNETS - SEXTINE-CYCLUS - THREE POPULAR SONGS, presenting three works written for countertenor.

The piece Sonnets was inspired by the poetry of Louise Labbé, Sextine-Cyclus is based on texts by thirteenth-century French troubadours, and Three Popular Songs is a tribute to Claude Debussy’s Images pour orchestre.

The young Ukrainian countertenor Yuriy Mynenko, in his first recital recording, performs the works with full orchestra, and celebrated French countertenor Jean-Paul Fouchécourt interprets Sextine-Cyclus, which he had premiered in France. The recording took place in Lisbon, with live accompaniment by the Gulbenkian Orchestra in the great hall of the Gulbenkian Foundation and, for a more intimate setting for Sextine-Cyclus, in the rehearsal room with soloists from the orchestra.

Gaussin: Harmonie des Sphères


Ensemble Sillages, Renaud Déjardin

The Ensemble Sillages is comprised of Jean-Marc Fessrad: clarinette, Vincent Leterme: piano and Sophie Deshayes: flute.

The composer Allain Gaussin is a noted French composer from Normandy, who studied composition at the Conservatoire national superieur de musique in Paris with Messiaen.

The work is written in three parts merging continuously: Part 1 "Symmetries" develops interleaving multiple "figures Ribbons" (in arabesque) split by different types of mirror (flat, sloping or distorting)..

Part 2 "Malaise teenager" is a musical interlude and finally "quantum Movements" (Part 3) takes us into another world, that of the infinitely small, probably where the universe was created.
