Notes and Editorial Reviews

The composers Alexandros Markeas, Alain Berlaud and Yassen Vodenitcharov, long-standing associates of the Quatuor Habanera, thought out a programme of works that would enable the jazz clarinettist Louis Sclavis to contrast and compare his world with that of the Quartet. Each of the scores was created with the idea of enabling him to extemporise his part above those of the four saxophonists.
