Ensemble Chaminade

The whole idea behind this release is finally throwing some light on the female contribution to the musical world: it’s a programme of works for piano and wind instruments written by ten contemporary female composers from the four corners of the world (Jordan, Greece, France, Canada, Argentina, Latvia, Australia, Nigeria, China and Italy). It is a sort of anthology of different currents and trends, perfectly illustrating the wealth of ideas that 21st-century female composers have to offer. It has been recorded by the Ensemble Chaminade, consisting of clarinet, oboe, horn, bassoon and piano, an ensemble specifically founded to study, record and divulgate this kind of repertoire. These works are receiving here their world premiere recording.
