In the Press…

Commissioned by L’Off Festival de jazz de Montréal, Tremblement de fer was premiered as the opening concert of the festival’s 10th edition at Montréal’s Old Port’s Shed 16 on June 18, 2009. The composition features Labbé’s atypical mix of contemporary music and avant-jazz and has been rearranged for a 13-piece band including a string quartet and a strong woodwind and brass section combined with the powerful drive of an electric rhythm section. Presented as a 7-piece suite, Tremblement de fer is resolutely non-linear music, iconoclastic and, at times, savage.

Pierre Labbé, composition, direction; André Leroux, tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone, bass clarinet; Jean Derome, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, flute, bass flute; Aaron Doyle, trumpet; Jean-Nicolas Trottier, trombone; Josianne Laberge, violin; Mélanie de Bonville, violin; Jean René, viola; Émilie Girard-Charest, cello; Bernard Falaise, electric guitar; Guillaume Dostaler, electric piano; Clinton Ryder, double bass; Pierre Tanguay, drum set, darbouka
