Aventa presents new works from Philippe Leroux (FR/CDN), David Eagle (AB) and Patrick Giguère (QC), alongside the dazzling ZAZPIAK Z by Bertrand Dubedout (FR).
Leroux, possessing a keen understanding of instrumental capabilities and the delicate relationship that exists between live musicians and electronics, continues to push the boundaries of what is possible for the modern ensemble. Aventa is proud to welcome virtuoso percussionist Aiyun Huang (QC) in the premiere of Leroux’s 2017 work, (D)Tourner.
“Philippe Leroux is already emblematic of what will be the twenty-first century” – Pierre Gervasoni, The World
“One would be hard pressed to find anyone who better embodies the spirit of drumming than Aiyun Huang” – Donald Paulker, The WholeNote Magazine
