For a decade, Brigitte Poulin has been commissioning and premiering works by composers who, she thought, could help better define our own piano culture. From this repertoire, she selected four pieces for Éditices naturels: James Harley’s Édifices (naturels) (2000), Ana Sokolović’s Danses et interludes (2003), Denys Bouliane’s Contredanse du silène Badouny (1998), and Paul Frehner’s Finnegans Quarks Revival (2005-07). All these composers have shown a personal affinity with the piano; each one of these works has a distinctive character.

“I naively hope that this album will make a contribution to the concert piano music of future generations and, if possible, outside the framework of the contemporary music concerts” —Brigitte Poulin

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
