2012 is the year of the saxophone, with two special guests: Jean Derome from Montréal, and John Butcher from Brighton, UK. Both are well known for their energy and imagination. Quasar has commissioned two works from them, to be premiered at this concert.
These two great saxophone players will also join Quasar on stage for a large-scale musical fresco fueled by quotes from Dany Leferrière’s novel Le Cri des oiseaux and arranged by Jean-Marc Bouchard.
