On all nuances — 2012/12/02

Yesterday was the day of all the nuances. A manual work during the day, at night, a big symphony concert at McGill University. Then a few choristers gathered for a beer. From there, I followed a chorister friend to a dance bar. A first for me.

The impressive Shostakovich — 2012/11/25

I have to catch up on my learning delay. The concert in which Ganymede will perform with the McGill Symphony Choir takes place next week. We will sing Shostakovich's 13th symphony, called Babi Yar, for male choir and baritone.

The calm slate — 2012/11/01

My days are tinged with tiny contrasts, with ripples licking the hourly beach as if nothing was going to happen, as if everything had to be done. It's not dawn or dusk, it's nothing, and it's all there.

The ocean where we sing — 2012/09/26

It was a difficult rehearsal last night at Ganymède. We are embarking on a marathon of learning a pivotal work from the male choral repertoire, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13.
