Note de programme
Tres Piezas In Memoriam L.J. was written in 1998 as a tribute to the British sculptor and dear friend Laurie Josephs, who passed away that year.

The pieces describe the journey of a ritual in which the first piece becomes a meditation around a melodic cell sung by the flute-an instrument very much cherished by Laurie- and on an F drone, held by the saxophones throughout this introduction.

The second piece follows, built by a series of interventions from a unique palette of instruments offered by La Banda Elástica, a group who combines Western instruments with a wide range of Mexican percussion instruments as well as the Indian Tabla, the instrument featured on the third and last piece.

This piece portrays a celebration of life and in this way homage to someone who loved life and music from every corner of the world, comes to a close.
