We have here a recording that is common to Philippe Hersant and Benoît Menut, two composers from different generations who have known each other well for twenty-five years — an idea that came to their minds whith Benoît Menut’s desire to write for the Trio Karénine, a concertante work with a similar length, format and instrumentation to that of Philippe Hersant, Chant de l’isolé. Thus was Depuis le Rivage created.
Each inspired in its own way by a poem, both works come to frame a musical journey that includes a work for a string orchestra, another for a for piano trio, and give voice to each group of performers interfering on its own.
