Upon agreeing to make a duo of trumpets and percussion, we immediately took on the substantial ‘classic’ of that combination, André Jolivet’s wild and wonderful Heptade. With technical demands way beyond the quixotic, the work bends the rules for both players to highly contrasting effect over its seven movements. Given to mood swings, the work muddles up jazz elements, tight compositional process, mayhem and mystique, always overseen by a very French erudition.
