Nouvel Ensemble Moderne; Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain / Daniel Kawka & Lorraine Vaillancourt

The aim of this monographic recording is to provide a few milestones amongst the works for different instrumental ensembles composed by Jaffrennou between 1997 and 2006. Three of these pieces combine electronics with the instrumental masses, the latter being quite variable, ranging from a trio in For Three to large forces (two ensembles of 15 musicians each in Chronorythmie).
