Cantate grise

  • Jean Derome
  • Year of composition: 1990
  • Duration: 50:50

The music of Cantate grise, inspired by readings of the complete works of playwright Samuel Beckett, is a tribute to this pillar of 20th century literature, and attempts to reflect his lucidity, asceticism, fraternal spirit and his very paradoxical “joie de vivre.”
