> Jummei SUZUKI / WolfieEdo

soloist : Hiroshi Hara (alto saxophone)

The particular title of the piece “WolfieEdo” comes from « Wolfie » the nickname of W.A. Mozart and « Edo » the former name for Tokyo. The name Edo is used today in « Ōedo-SEN », a Tokyo subway line that is very familiar for the population. With this piece, I try to associate two very different types of music.

> Rodrigo LIMA / Antiphonas

soloist : Pedro Bittencourt (alto saxophone)

« I assumed the reciprocity and ritualistic aspect suggested by the title of the piece as a propelling element of interactions between soloist and ensemble. Yet the dialogues are not mere answers or repetitions; they project themselves in time as a kind of echo, or distorted «antiphonal dialogue », creating a sonorous sham where points, lines and textures tend to game of construction and deconstruction of movements and sonorities ». R. Lima

> Kevin JUILLERAT / Monk 2 : Plouk

soloist : Noémie Bialobroda (viola) et Kevin Juillerat (tenor saxophone)

> Bernhard LANG / DW 24

soloist : Lars Mlekusch (alto saxophone)


Proxima Centauri : Marie-Bernadette Charrier, saxophone / Christophe Havel, electronic / Sylvain Millepied, flute / Clément Fauconnet, percussion / Hilomi Sakaguchi, piano

Ensemble Linéa : Samuel Stoll, horn / Jens Bracher, trumpet / Thierry Spiesser, trombone / Marco Fusi, violin / N.N, violin / Antoine Spindler, viola / Johannes Burghoff, cello / Sven Kestel, double bass

Artistic direction : Marie-Bernadette Charrier and Jean-Philippe Wurtz

Musical direction : Guillaume Bourgogne

>> Kevin JUILLERAT (1987, swiss)


Monk 2 : Plouk

(for alto and tenor saxophone solo, saxophone baritone, violin, double bass, horn, flute, percussion, piano, trombone, trumpet, cello)

Plouk is a musical adaptation of the collection of poems Plouk Town. This rough and grating social tragedy with its exhilarating formal rigor was written by the british autor Ian Monk. The pièce stages two feverish and inséparable soloists in a desperate fight against a brutal and oppressive instrumental ensemble. It queries the room of individual in a society which is only the shadow of its old idéals.

>> Bernhard LANG (1957, austrian)

DW 24

(for alto saxophone solo, eight instruments and electronics)

This piece is part of the series Differenz-Wiederholung that includes 30 pieces and can be considered the sister piece of DW 23 that draws an electroacoustic portrait of an artistic personality: in the case of the latter, it is Boris Karloff, in the present case it is Al Jourgensen, founder and leader of the industrial metal band Ministry.


Proxima Centauri is a chamber music ensemble that sets artistic creation at the heart of its work. Constantly in relation with composers, it encourages the development of a new and original repertoire – that integrates in particular new technologies within the tradition of the interpreter musician- by practicing a policy of active commissioning. Peculiar care is given to the scenography and lighting.

Of international fame, the ensemble is regularly invited to many festivals and tours in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Oceania.

Proxima Centauri, member of Futurs Composés, is sponsored by the Ministère de la Culture – DRAC Aquitaine, Conseil Régional d’Aquitaine, Conseil Général de la Gironde, la Ville de Bordeaux, SPEDIDAM and SACEM.
