Michel Gonneville's dreamlike, shamanistic journey, "Hozhro", in a brilliantly executed reading by Montreal's Quatuori Bozzini with vocalist Marianne Lamber & saxophonist Mathieu Gualin.

Quatuor Bozzini
Michel Gonneville: Hozhro

Quatuor Bozzini: Michel Gonneville: Hozhro (Collection QB)
Label: Collection QB    
Released in: Canada    

"Quatuor Bozzini joins forces with composer Michel Gonneville for a unique contemporary opera on the "hot" issue of the ecological crisis, based on the thoughts of eminent Quebecois ecologist Pierre Dansereau. The music takes us deep into the universe of a woman haunted by that crisis, a woman who is trying to reclaim her inner harmony ("hozhro" in Navajo) and embarking on a process similar in ways to a North-American Native healing ritual. Played by soprano Marianne Lambert, surrounded by the string quartet Quatuor Bozzini and the saxophonist Mathieu Gaulin, the main character withdraws within herself to escape through her dreams and a sensuous form of poetry, from which she will come out calmed down and lucid."-Collection QB
