Donemus and the board of the Olivier Greif Association are proud to announce their new and exciting collaboration for an extensive amount of works by Olivier Greif (1950-2000), resulting from three years’ work by engraver, Anne-Elise Thouvenin….
Thus, an important number of vocal works from the youth period such as Saltimbanques and Chanson de Gaspard Hauser but also from the latest period like the Three settings of Musset, are to be published soon.
Will also come out, some of the chamber music repertoire as well with the opuses 301, The Tailor of Gloucester and 320, Ritournelle for wind quintet, just to name a few.
Among them, the Danse des Araucans op.89, freshly created by the Olivier Greif Ensemble, to discover here:
The Olivier Greif Ensemble founded four years ago by Anne-Elise Thouvenin and based in The Netherlands, works as ambassador of Olivier Greif’s music, discrete but fascinating French composer of late twentieth century. A composer whose music seems to be made for the listener to get lost in the detail of works that look like deliberately heterogeneous mosaics, constantly nourished of references. According to Anne-Elise, whatever the score by which one reaches the world of Olivier Greif, the effect produced by his music is always the same: one wants to know more about the man and his work, in a straight line of Britten and Shostakovich.Together with her colleagues, Victoria Dmitrieva and Jesus Jiménez, they not only perform his trio and sonatas – today recognized as Masterpieces – but they’re also engaged to create and record the other works of this very large catalogue (around 300 opuses).
