CAMAÏEUX
Ensemble Itinéraire, Yves Prin, conductor

Two major works of Allain Gaussin, the one for large orchestra and soloists, the other one for solo piano. Two masterpieces. Irisation-Rituel reveals one of the main sources of inspiration of Allain Gaussin, the nature as the object of metaphysical and cosmic meditation. A powerful orchestral writing, livened up by telluric strengths but also by sketched breaths or by long ornamented melodic phrases. Arcane, mysterious by definition, renews in a very personal and surprising way the piano writing. Camaieux draws tints of the first tries of writing with electronic sounds.

THE ARDITTI QUARTET EDITION
Montaigne Records, 782 002 - 1991

CHAKRA
Arditti quartet


Arditti quartet, four interpreters at the top of their art, gives life to "the conception fundamentally energetics of the sound material in Allain Gaussin’s works" (Alain Durney). The sound material of Chakra results from a mess of extended techniques of an extreme variety and novelty as well as of a contrapuntal writing reinvented by the composer.

LA CHEVELURE DE BERENICE
Yvan Bellocq, flute


Composer and flutist, Yvan Bellocq achieves, with an immense sensibility, the will of Allain Gaussin " to invent something new in melodic phrase ". The influence of the musics of Far East appears in the modal writing ornamented as in the very uncluttered conception of time.
