RE-sonare was written for LES PERCUSSION DE STRASBOURG, FRANÇOISE RIVALLAND (cimablom) & PASCAL CONTET (accordion) and was first performed at the Abbaye d’Royaumont (France) in September 2006.


Duration: 10’


Instrumentation: accordion, cimbalom & two percussionists

‘re’ – expressing intensive force

‘sonare’ – to sound

‘resonare’ – to sound and resound


Exploring the resonance of intense musical gestures, this piece is a discovery of the ensemble’s inner sonorities. As the drama of the work slowly unfolds, these gestures are progressively transformed.
