Marcel Dupré (1886-1971) “Poème Héroïque” (for brass ensemble and organ)

With delicate Gabrieli canzonas, Strauss' powerful sound clouds and Dupré's martially heroic phrases this programme celebrates the tonal variety of the queen of instruments in interplay with the instruments of the kings: The brass players move around in the venue and play accordingly to the local conditions from different positions in the space. This way they play with the spatial possibilities like it was the case more than 400 years ago in the Dome of San Marco in Venice. The pieces for ensemble alternate with pieces for solo organ to make room for the brass players to change their positions.
