NEW ALBUM: VAGUES ET OMBRES

to be released on May 27, 2022

We asked ourselves: could we, as nine string players, perform Claude Debussy’s La Mer and do it justice? In a musical style where timbre and colour are paramount, attempting to interpret this iconic work seemed outrageous; however, we do love a challenge. 

 

To La Mer, we add more music by Debussy, and a new work by Luna Pearl Woolf completes the programme of this album: Contact is ‘a sonic view into the underwater world of beluga whales in the St. Lawrence Estuary’.

  

The single from this album is out now:

NO TIME FOR CHAMBER MUSIC

released on September 24, 2021

Exploring extreme dualities, No Time for Chamber Music satirically magnifies the play between opposing forces - (wo)man and nature, life and death, dark and light, frivolous and serious - with glimmering folk dances and allusions to the stillness of nature. In this album, we delve into rich and complex musical textures in intimate arrangements of works by Gustav Mahler.

In each piece, collectif9 explores colours that push at the edges of respectability ... a solid debut from an ensemble that has the potential to go very far indeed.

Volksmobiles features folk-inspired music by Brahms, Bartók, Schnittke, André Gagnon, and the world premiere recording of Canadian composer Geof Holbrook’s Volksmobiles, written for the ensemble.
