It seems that singing on the world's stage has some unexpected benefits! I received this email a couple of days ago from French composer Jean-Christophe ROSAZ. He heard about us from the Tours festival and is interested in us singing some of his music.
I often get statement-questions like:
"I've never heard of that composer--How do you find that music?"
Well, it seems that sometimes, the music finds me. I've not played through it yet, but it looks like great stuff. Many thanks to Composer ROSAZ. His letter to me (and you):
I’m contacting you by the amiability of Le concours des choeurs de Tours (France). I’m a composer (diplômas from the CONSERVATOIRE NATIONAL SUPERIEUR DE LYON AND the ECOLE NORMALE SUPERIEURE DE MUSIQUE DE PARIS)
I’m myself a singer and very interested by the fact to work with choirs.
You will find attached my cv, a photo and a catalogue of scores (many edited in France).
I propose you many scores for choir of different formations. I could sent you by mail the first pages of some of them under word or finale. I have only 2 on cd.
I will be very happy to receive an answer from you.
