Nature continues to excite the passions of some human beings.
Composers have often responded to its colourful sound-palette.

The compositions on this CD belong together since each work is inspired by nature or natural phenomena. Each track on this CD guides the eye upwards: from the sea (Tsoupaki), to the birds in the sky (Messiaen), to the cirrus clouds (Harvey), to the moon (Saariaho) and finally to the stars (Aperghis).

TheWholeNote (Max Christie) febr21: Fie Schouten makes the bass clarinet ring with a gorgeous sound….Messiaen.. at a perfect fourth below the original pitch, desolation is powerfully rendered by the lower voice…Saariaho.. beautifull…Aperghis…stunning… sounds like a dialogue of mad twins..Finnissy…right in Schouten’s wheelhouse: singing tone and powerful expression.”
Anna Harvey (daughter of Jonathan Harvey): you have really captured that spacious, other-worldly quality which I love about this piece
Georges Aperghis: “..c’est un grand plaisir de vous écouter la (Façade-Trio) jouer…”
