Michel Lysight : Happy Birthday, Mr Darwin!


for two trumpets, horn and trombone or saxophone quartet

While transforming and agglutinating, the short cells of the beginning of this quartet develop gradually from simple to complex, illustrating musically Charles Darwin’s ‘evolution theory’, as an homage to this great scientist, who was born 100 years ago.

A gorgeous musical illustration of the order out of chaos mechanism.

World premiere by Alcatrasax Quartet on 16th January 2010 in Evere (Brussels, Belgium) during the festival Nouvelle Musique Consonante.
