The world premiere of an important work by Pierre Boulez, in a new arrangement!

Recorder virtuoso Erik Bosgraaf was personally granted permission to arrange Boulez’ 'Dialogue de l’ombre double', originally for clarinet and electronics, for recorder. Bosgraaf says: ‘I noticed that Mr Boulez liked the texture right away. And he told me why. It reminded him of the origin of the piece, which was a rain song in South East Asia, where they applied a similar kind of melody technique with the human voice.

The result is a dynamic interplay between Bosgraaf’s recorder and the fascinating electronic timbres and colours. The second work on this release is a musical dialogue between Bosgraaf and electronic wizard Jorrit Tamminga, creating unheard‐of sounds of the recorder interwoven in electronic sound tapestries.

A great addition to the Boulez discography, and a testimony of the versatility of Erik Bosgraaf, equally at home in Baroque as in contemporary music, always curiously finding new expression possibilities for his instrument.
