C’est en avril 2017 que l’enregistrement des 4 pièces se termine ! Clazz reçoit tout un encouragement de la part du chef d’orchestre Paul Mann. Ce dernier a souvent dirigé les orchestres symphoniques lors de concerts et de projets studio de Jon Lord, dont le London Symphony Orchestra. Il est de plus responsable de la publication dans le monde des oeuvres orchestrales de l’ex-membre de Deep Purple. Voici ses mots après écoute de la relecture de Sarabande par Clazz :
« Dear Christiane and Denis,
Thanks so much for sending this – I’m really impressed! It captures the spirit of the music really well, and everyone plays beautifully. The pianist handles that tricky part very well and I like the way the ending works, since of course leads straight into the next movement in the original work. The clarinet is wonderful – with an Klezmer-like quality that completely suits the music.The percussion adds colour and just the right amount of “groove”. I am sure that Jon would have loved it, both the playing and the spirit.
It makes me very happy to know that all the work I have put into the scores is being put to such good use.
Thanks again very much for sending it over, and many congratulations and all best wishes to everyone involved.
