Dusapin: Item / Deforce, Dieltjens
Dieltjens, Benjamin; Deforce, Arne
What is fascinating in the music of Pascal Dusapin is the unrestrained energy that radiates from his music, the compact and radical intensity of the sound structures and the clear sense of form of the music in which a singular expressivity is achieved, where the voice of the ‘other’ — the otherness of the cello or clarinet — is expressed. Arne Deforce is renowned for his passionate and exceptional performances of contemporary and experimental music. His inventive programmes explore new musical forms of expression in which the act of an uninhibited creative listening is privileged. In this album, his interpretation is filled with a pure energy, an authentic and personal sound universe that is developed in highly expressive structures of sound and performed with an unbelievable energy that is both ferocious and joyous. Clarinetist Benjamin Dieltjens is mainly active as a chamber music player (on historical instruments as well as in the classical and new repertoire) and is regularly invited as such at many international festivals. In 2008 he was invited to be principal clarinet at the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam.
