about

Moncton-based composer André Cormier is one of Canada’s truly unique musical voices. One of the final protégés of the great James Tenney, Cormier’s music highlights aspects of frailty and imperfection — to this end,his work explores issues of timbre and silence to a degree that few of his contemporaries can match. His 70+ minute work for solo piano, Zwischen den Wolken (“Between the Clouds”) was commissioned by German pianist Markus Kreul in 2013. Praised by the press for “highly poetic” performances that “awaken memories of Svjatoslav Richter”, Kreul presents this music with immense sensitivity and nuance, bringing to life Cormier's performance instruction, "pensez au nuages, toujours" ("always thinking of clouds"). The accompanying CD booklet is a work of art in itself, featuring a copy of the musical score as well as commissioned writings by Herménégilde Chiasson (in French), Robert Everett-Green (in English), and Armin Strohmeyr (in German).
