Pecou: La Symphonie Du Jaguar
Label: HARMONIA MUNDI
Ensemble Zellig with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, conducted by François-Xavier Roth & Jonathan Stockhammer
Thierry Pecou (1965-) La Symphonie du jaguar / Vague de Pierre
An irresistible energy irradiates the entire sound material of Thierry Pécou’s orchestral music, right down to the silences. This almost spiritual celebration of rhythm is extremely rare in contemporary composers. Impelled by their rhythmic drive, the Symphonie du Jaguar and Vague de pierre explore the mysteries of the pre-Columbian mythologies of Maya Mexico and the literary painters of ancient China.
