"Late Winter/ Early Spring" were created at the same time as the tsunami and the earthquake hit the shores of Japan. It was the late winter and early spring.
It was initially an idea in mind: two semi composed, half improvised pieces for four players: clarinet, flute, piano, bass. Something 'airy', close to contemporary music.
Finally, leading to another, two musicians have established themselves and have brought their own vision of two pieces. So my project with other musicians has turned into a true trio."
