Simone Menezes, Ensemble K - Accents
Catalogue No.: AP243
Release Date: 15th January 2021
Ensemble K is a multicultural orchestra led by Italian-Brazilian conductor Simone Menezes. Together they release their first recording, ‘Accents’, on Aparté.
Joining together from around the world, the aim of the musicians is to explore the original ‘accent’ of the works they perform, as closely as possible to the traditional music practices.
From the beautiful ‘Chôros’ No.5 by Villa-Lobos to the primitive Russia of Borodine’s ‘Polovtsian Dances’, the Aboriginal culture with the French
composer Sophie Lacaze, American music by Copland and Debussy’s ‘Prélude à l’Après-midi d’un faune’, Simone Menezes and her ensemble explore
the many accents of Western music.
Prélude à l’Après-midi d’un faune, L. 86
