Works by Bashaw, Grisey, Hurel, Vivier.

As part of the MusiMars 2004 programme, the SMCQ has scheduled a concert highlighting two French composers of the so-called “spectral” school, launched in the 1970’s by Gérard Grisey, whose interest was mainly the sounds of distant galaxies — the celebrated pulsars — a language of which was later developed by Philippe Hurel. Claude Vivier found a source of inspiration in these new artistic avenues from which he would draw in a profoundly original manner. As for Howard Bashaw, a solitary structuralist “cowboy”, he is apparently the only “hard edge” composer of the Western Canadian plains.
