Lepage explores the tempo

Monday, November 3, 2003 New releases

One one side, Robert Marcel Lepage a prolific composer. On the other, La Nef, an adventurous ensemble of early instruments. As soon as the ensemble commissioned a work to the composer, they were launched in a quest for time and tempos. La machine à explorer le tempo (“The Machine for Exploring Tempo”) is a well balanced mechanic that touches upon a variety of styles with enthousiasm, furor and tact.
