Daï Fujikura, Pascal Gallois conduct Prague Modern


This project involves exploring and the study of the composer's work, which in this case is Dai Fujikura. Taking the instrument as the starting point, this expands to include the orchestra.. We will be going into his music in depth, especially the music he has written for the orchestra. It was my privilege to have known the composer when he was just beginning his career. This is important, because everything becomes clearer when you have the “big picture”. This CD was an opportunity for me to conduct Prague Modern, a young ensemble which today is carrying on the tradition of the past while representing a vibrant new school of composers. It has acquired a remarkable homogeneity in its fast legato string playing as is also the case for the winds with their intense staccato and articulation.
