On a previous post (CLICK HERE) i shared some infos about my very first recording !
Therese Brenet : Le Visionnaire
Very recently I was able to take back a lot of pictures from my "dead" Iphone (3! so it is quite old), and there were many that were made during this recording, and ... i never shared them on any social media.
The recording session was at the old "Vogue" studios, where people like Jacques Dutronc (Paris s’éveille) and Serge Gainesbourg recorded "back in the day". It's an amazing place and we had a great time doing the recording.
But .... THE reason that gave me the will to do it , is to discover that the cd label shared on youtube a lot of tracks from this cd .
So before the funny pictures, i am sharing with you those audio files
Dans l'Or Vibrant du Désert , for piano and violin
Le Visionnaire for alto saxophone viola and piano
Du Bronze et de lumière for Serpent and piano (yes the ancestor of trumpet!)
The first movement of Quintet for piano and strings
the 2nd movment :
and my favorite : le Boustophédron for flute clarinet violin cello and piano
Now the pictures :
It was my first pro classical recording , so .... do not get mad after the almost naive photos or comments :)
Arrival to the Studio
|It was in banlieu , so .... far away from Paris !|
The outside was nice
and pretty big.
The studio was very well known in the 80's for some cult french bands
|The studio has everything necessary !|
|Preparing all the equipments|
|start to see how it looks like|
|micro are getting installed|
|Dear Paul supervising|
|Scores on the piano for the "very contemporary" piece of Brenet (Boustophedron)|
|last minute change|
|warming up the next piece|
|a pause, time to take coffee and some candies|
|we can see from the outisde it s wonderful concrete structure|
|a nice loby|
|and an even nicer listening room|
|the army of mic|
Now some pictures of the recording itself
|i was lucky to do it with my good childhood frend and excellent celist Eric Zorgnoti !|
|bye bye nice piano ....|
I really hope you liked those pictures and the samples , and that they will give you the desire to deep your knowledge about Brenet, a composer really to keep an eye on (even if next year she will turn 80!)
