Igor Ballereau - Lettres à des amies-enfants

Five songs for voice, flute, clarinet, violin, viola and cello

Jody Pou; Ensemble SIC

Throughout his entire adult life, Lewis Carroll wrote an uncountable amount of letters to his numerous child-friends, mostly little girls. These letters are undoubtly love letters of a very remarkable kind.

Based on excerpts from a few of them, these songs stand as a musical metaphor for Carroll’s mind and undertaking; a mind intensely caught in between deep melancholy and colorful extravaganza, between childhood as inhabited by angels and death as an unacceptable promise for all.
