Avid to propose a varied program, I wished to mix solo pieces and musical plays of chamber music. Fascinated by the directories of the violin and the saxophone, we wanted to mix these two worlds through our formation, the duet Héméra.
Our will was to revisit two works of the repertoire of chamber for two violins, Arthur Honegger’s sonatina and the 4th whim of Henryk WieniaskiThe work of Honegger allows a real dialogue between the stamps of our two instruments and it seemed to us interesting to exchange themes and voice(vote) of support.
As for the whim of Wieniaski, it is the opportunity to show the possibilities virtuosos of the saxophone and the violin simultaneously.

Besides these two pieces in duet, I wished to present two works for only saxophone, one for alto saxophone and one for soprano saxophone. The work for sax Alto, Clos Guinguet de JD Michat, mixes typically French culture of the XXth century and its local dances, contesmporaines techniques of the saxophone and the high virtuosity. The congress 2015 being in France, this piece appeared to me to be an attractive wink of eye in my country, in this event, in my instrument and in my professor. Concerning Kabuki, it is Christian Lauba’s very beautiful recent work on the oriental modes and the japonnaises melodies. Relatively little interpreted, it appeared to me as a work emphasizing the technical and sound possibilities of the soprano saxophone.

With this project, we wanted to put forward an eclectic program even unpublished which could find its place at the world congress of the saxophone of Strasbourg next July.
