The Quintet Clarinettes, five men playing their "treujenngaol" ....

On-stage at the Theatre de Cornouaille the five black-clad virtuoso clarinettists played traditional airs at a brisk pace and in a very contemporary vein. The music was characterised by sounds ressembling the cries of seagulls - "a technique they use in Bulgaria" explained Erik Marchand after the concert. "Blowing across the dismantled clarinette makes a flute sound". Another eastern inspiration came from Michel Aumont, the bass clarinette player, when he breathed in to play, instead of out! Counterpoint and rhythm in abundance, the players never stopped moving for a moment, and after the final encore the audience let rip as the players retreated to the sound of rapturous applause.
