About

Ariane Brisson, flautist, and Olivier Hébert-Bouchard, pianist, present Mythes, an album of transcriptions of works by Claude Debussy, Leoš Janáček, Maurice Ravel, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Karol Szymanowski.

Inspired by the magical, mythical world of sprites and fairies, the programme includes Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune in an arrangement by Gustave Samazeuilh; Janáček's Pohádka (A Fairy Tale); and Ravel's Sonatine pour piano in transcriptions by Ariane Brisson; along with Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending, and Szymanowski's Mythes for violin and piano, op.30, both transcribed by Ariane Brisson.

"I have always loved those moments where reality and fantasy embrace one another," says Ariane Brisson. "I drew inspiration from the idea of playing on ambiguity: from the ethereal to the magical."

Selected as 'Decouverte de l'année' at the Prix Opus 2019-2020 Gala and Grand Prize winner of the Prix d'Europe competition in 2013, Ariane Brisson stands out for the refinement of her interpretations. She has been a member of the Pentaèdre ensemble since 2016. As Principal Flute with the Grands Ballets Canadiens Orchestra and the Orchestre symphonique de Drummondville, and as a regular collaborator with Les Violons du Roy, she has performed throughout North America as well as in Europe and Asia.

Multi award-winning pianist Olivier Hébert-Bouchard is a founding member of Trio Émerillon and Prisma. He collaborates regularly with outstanding Quebec musicians including flautist Ariane Brisson, clarinettist David Dias da Silva and cellist Stéphane Tétreault. He has appeared at many international festivals, including Orford in the UK.
