"Le label Indésens créé par Benoit d'Hau peut vraiment trouver sa place dans un univers pourtant saturé de productions en tout genre.
Par un réel désir de trouver une identité à chaque album, de mieux laisser s'épanouir les spécificités de cette école instrumentale française, et de s'ouvrir à des compositeurs de notre temps qui se situent dans le sillage de cette dernière, il encourage la création et la redécouverte d'oeuvres parfois rares."
Thierry Escaich Compositeur, Organiste, Professeur au CNSMDP

Vladimir Cosma (né en 1940)
Courts-métrages (1996)
D’origine roumaine, Vladimir Cosma arrive en France en 1963 et poursuit ses études avec Nadia Boulanger à l’Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris et travaille avec Michel Legrand. C'est dans la seconde moitié des années 60 qu’il est amené à composer pour le cinéma. Il a écrit plus de 200 musiques de films, pour le grand écran comme pour le petit. Son œuvre a déjà été couronné par deux Césars et un 7 d'Or. Ce compositeur a entre autres signé les musiques de La Boum, Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob, Diva... Vladimir Cosma se consacre maintenant à l'écriture d’œuvres basées sur les célèbres mélodies qu'il a écrit pour le cinéma comme Courts Métrages pour quintette de cuivres. Commande du Concours International de Narbonne en 1998, cette œuvre reprend plusieurs thèmes du film Montparnasse Pondichéry réalisé par Yves Robert en 1993 avec lequel Vladimir Cosma a souvent travaillé.

André Lafosse (1890-1975)
Suite impromptue
A l'origine écrite pour quatuor de trombones, cette Suite impromptue se décompose en quatre mouvements emprunts de délicatesse et de poésie : Épithalame, Marche, Élégie et Mouvement.

Victor Ewald (1860-1935)
Quintette n°3 (1912)
Ingénieur civil et violoncelliste russe, Victor Ewald a été le deuxième compositeur - après le français Jean-François Bellon - à composer des quintettes de cuivres. Écrite à la manière des quatuors à cordes romantiques, cette pièce se compose de quatre mouvements ou l'expression lyrique des cuivres trouve toute sa place.

Kerry Turner (né en 1960)
Ricochet (1993)
Membre du célèbre American Horn Quartet, Kerry Turner a composé plus de quarante pièces pour cuivres, dont six quintettes de cuivres. Très virtuose et énergique, cette œuvre descriptive n'est pas sans rappeler les vastes étendues de son Texas natal. Les échanges rythmiques présents tout au long de cette pièce ont bien sur inspirés son titre : Ricochet.

ENGLISH LINER NOTES

Vladimir Cosma (born in 1940)
Courts-métrages (1996)
Of Rumanian origin, Vladimir Cosma emigrates to France in 1963 and continues his studies with Nadia Boulanger at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris and works with Michel Legrand. From the second half of the sixties, he starts composing for cinema. He has written over 200 film-tracks, for cinema as well as for TV. His career has already been acknowledged with rewards : two Césars and a 7 d'Or. He is the composer of many famous sound-tracks such as La Boum, Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob, Diva ... Vladimir Cosma now dedicates all his time to writting pieces based on famous melodies that he has composed for cinema, such as Courts Métrages for Brass quintet. Ordered by the Concours International de Narbonne in 1998, this piece revives several themes in the film Montparnasse Pondichéry directed by Yves Robert in 1993 with whom Vladimir Cosma has often worked.

André Lafosse
Suite impromptue
Written originally for trombone quartets, the Suite Impromptue has four movements full of delicacy and poetry : Epithalamium, March, Elegy and Movement.

Victor Ewald (1860-1935)
Quintet n°3 (1912)
The civil engineer and Russian cellist Victor Ewald, was the second composer- after Jean-François Bellon the Frenchman, to compose brass quintets. Written in the same manor as for romantic string quartets, this piece has four movements in which the brass lyrical expression is grand.

Kerry Turner (born in 1960)
Ricochet (1993)
The member of the famous American Horn Quartet Kerry Turner, composed over forty pieces for brass, among which, six brass quintets. This very virtuoso and energetic descriptive work, recalls the endless landscapes of Texas, his home state. The rhythm all along the piece, inspired its name : Ricochet (the bouncing movement of a flat stone, throne on water).

COSMA Courts-métrages. LAFOSSE Suite impromptue. EWALD Quintet No. 3. TURNER Ricochet. OR Notes Brass INDESENS INDE022 (52:42)
http://www.indesens.fr/index.php?art=26&th=56

The twentieth-century brass repertoire presented here is quite conservative – all unabashedly tonal and unashamedly tuneful, with only the brief Turner piece being unmistakably in a contemporary idiom. None of the four composers is exactly a household name. Perhaps the most familiar is the Russian cellist and engineer Victor Ewald (1860–1935), whose four brass quintets are staples of that repertoire, with the first (the only one published in his lifetime) being by far the most frequently recorded. The four movements of the third offer a felicitous stylistic combination of Russian romantic melodiousness and sturdy German construction.

Kerry Turner (b.1960) is a French horn player who has composed numerous works for brass and mixed chamber ensembles, with recordings available on several labels, particularly MSR Classics. His compositions often reflect his Texas environs, employing melodies and rhythms evocative of the Western frontier but avoiding triteness and cliché. Ricochet (a musical depiction of a smooth stone skipping across a watery surface) is a representative piece, with rapid-fire repeated notes alternating with snatches of bouncy songlike phrases.
The other two composers are even more obscure. Vladimir Cosma (b. 1940) is a Rumanian immigrant to France who has penned over 200 film scores and (according to the liner notes) bases his other compositions on melodies drawn from those works. There were several LPs issued of his film music; at present a few scattered recordings of other works by him can be found on some potpourri CDs. His three-movement Courts-métrages has a bustling opening that conjures up a car ride on a busy Paris boulevard, followed by a quiet late-night interlude at a solitary café table, and concludes with a tango-inflected dance finale.
I cannot find any previous recording of a work by trombonist André Lafosse (1920–1995). Some LPs once featured his instrumental playing on the L’Oiseau Lyre and L’Anthologie Sonore labels; he is on CD in the EMI composer-led recording of the Stravinsky Octet. His Suite impromptue alternates two slow movements with two fast ones; all are reminiscent of film music from a half-century ago and perfectly complement the Cosma.
The French have a tradition of fine brass ensembles, and this quintet, composed of players from Paris and Lyon, is no exception. The sound of the instruments is less weighty and more brilliant than their German and English counterparts. The playing is precise, spirited, and vigorous, with finely focused tone, clean tonguing and articulation, and faultless blend and balance. The playing of the Ewald Quintet is competitive with performances on the BIS and Deux-Elles labels; a new recording is just now appearing from the brass of the Philadelphia Orchestra. The other recording of Turner Ricochet was not available to me, and no alternatives exist for the Cosma and Lafosse pieces. The recorded sound is ideal, clear and focused but not dry, without any resonance that could muddle the instrumental interplay. The only slight drawbacks are the relatively short disc timing and the lack of a booklet; skimpy liner notes (in fractured English translation) are printed on the fold-out wings of the digipak. This is both an unabashed treat for fellow brass music aficionados, and a fine opportunity for those unfamiliar with such repertoire to become acquainted with some perfectly delightful music that will banish any oom-pah-pah stereotypes. Strongly recommended.
