On September 20, 2015, at 3 PM at the Mahaney Centre for the Arts at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont, USA, Steve Klimowski (Clarinet in A) and Sarah Danforth-Brightman (piano) gave the world premiere of my duo “Mon âme fut à sa merci”. The performance was part of the Affiliate Artists Collaborative Concert at the Music Department of the College.
I am proud to participate in the project Fables2016, a cultural product release that will include an audio CD, a data disc, and a bilingual illustrated book featuring, among other works, my cycle of songs for baritone and piano, composed on the recently discovered and yet unpublished text of my grandfather’s fables.
The product will be released under the label Disques Benedictus. The publisher, Gutenberg publishing house (Bulgaria) will manifacture only one hundred copies of the product that will be sold at CAN$100 a copy.
