Gentiana Video

Gentiana is a composition for double-bell trumpet augmented with cymbals, guitar, percussion, violin and cello. It was premièred by the Nebula Ensemble on June 22, 2018, during their summer festival. They just posted the video of the performance:

Gentiana evokes characteristics of alpine flowering plants. The three sections of the piece are: Esprit, Vertige (from around 2:50), and Racines (starting around 5:25).

In Racines, you might recognize a traditional song... Let me know if you get the quote!

For more information, see my previous post showing the true digital synths for string instruments.
