The iconic percussion work

In Brehon - Hugues Dufourt’s symphony for six percussionists and as many as 150 percussion instruments - the composer describes the birth and transformation of sound: waves, streams, shimmers, vibrations, turbulences... Saharan drums, Turkish cymbals and Thai gongs create an imaginary landscape à la Edgar Allan Poe. Six Royal Conservatory percussionists accept the challenge of bringing this marvellous tour de force back to life 51 years after its premiere. Media Arts students from KASK add visuals to this gem, via video projections.
