The International Cello Festival presented the premiere of D’après les lignes de Guillevic for three cellos on June 15, 2011 in Winnipeg.
This three movement piece is partly informed by the work of French poet Eugene Guillevic. Each of the short movements carry a subtitle that evokes some element of the atmosphere found in the original short poems. The movement titles are as follows: 1) la fleur sans nom/the nameless flower; 2) dans la clarté du jour/in day’s brightness; 3) un dieu qu’on oublie/a god one forgets.
The performers for the premiere performance were Thomas Wiebe, Denise Djokic, and Brian Yoon.
