Claude Barthélémy: Okawati's (Book/CD)

Books | Alto Saxophone or Soprano Saxophone

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Claude Barthélemy

Composed by Claude Barthélémy, Okawati's is the first piece from the series "Irrawady" (also named "Asia is running through my ears") for Alto or Soprano Saxophone and electro-acoustic system. Commissioned by a Cultural Centre, this series is made of four parts and two interludes (without Saxophone) and was used as a piece of contest.

This particular piece, Okawati's is representing a hotel located in between rice fields in Bali. At night, there is no silence but the noise of frogs and birds flying around. The player is supposed to impersonate one of the birds.

Lasting 5'34 minutes, the score of this piece is written in modern writing and requires some good knowledge of modern and contemporary pieces and some very good technical knowledge. Quite unusual and fun to play, it also includes a CD which features the part of the electro-acoustic system.

It is followed by:

- Interlude I

- Ubud

- Le dos des caïmans

- Interlude II

- Gazebo
