Essences des bois Short Info

Winner! best concert Jazz and word music in Québec ( Opus Price 2013-2014 )

Septet Yves Léveillé in concert: Release of the Album Essences des bois.
Montréal the 26th of February 2014:
Presentation of the project:

Difficult to resist the flood of imagery and the muffled waves of the woodwinds set in motion by the latest album from the composer/pianist Yves Léveillé. In this septet for flutes, oboes, English horn, clarinets, saxophones, piano, bass and drums, the Montreal musician creates a luminous balance between the colours of the woodwinds and the supple energy of the rhythm section. Shifting from the pursuit of ideal phrasing to the complex and the lyrical, Léveillé persistently strives for jazz-like beauty. The musical clarity, a sign of the composer’s maturity, is combined with graceful tones and a purity of playing, all of which give a shimmering, dreamy resonance to the ensemble. With ample room for virtuosity and musical intelligence, this encounter between seven exceptional musicians is deeply moving.
