Ensemble Alternance UK Premiere

sound in association with the University of Aberdeen

King's College Chapel, Aberdeen

French Ensemble Alternance join us for a series of two concerts. The first
is dedicated to the music of French composer Raphaël Cendo, one of the leading exponents of saturated music. Rokh is an enormous mythological bird from the Thousand and One Nights, the keeper of the Tree of Knowledge of the Garden of Hesperides and symbol of renewal and immortality. Cendo explores the themes of life, death and resurrection through the work’s three movements.

Raphaël Cendo Rokh for flutes,
violin, cello and piano

The performances of Ensemble Alternance at soundfestival are supported by Diaphonique (a franco-british contemporary music fund supported by the Institut Français, the SACEM, the Bureau export de la musique, the British Council and the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication).
