A few words about the musicians:
Soloist, researcher and pedagogue Prof. Claude Delangle, one of the greatest contemporary saxophonists, stands out as the master of the French saxophone. Privileged interpreter for classic works, he enriches the repertoire and encourages creation by collaborating with the most renowned composers, including L. Berio, P. Boulez, T. Takemitsu, T.Hosokawa, I.Nodaïra, A. Piazzolla, and promoting the youngest. Many pieces that have been dedicated to him are published in the Claude Delangle saxophone collection at Henry-Lemoine-Paris. Since 1986, he is an invited saxophonist in the Ensemble Intercontemporain. He also appears as a soloist with the most prestigious orchestras (London BBC, Radio France, Radio of Finland, WDR Köln, Berlin Philharmonic, Kioi Tokyo, and Tokyo Philharmonic) and works with D. Robertson, P. Eötvös, K. Nagano, E.P. Salonen, Miung Wung Chung, Bernstein and many other conductors. Prof. Delangle is also invited to most preeminent music festivals such as the Aldeburgh Festival, Zagreb Biennale, Radio France, Helsinki Festival, Musica Strasbourg and his exclusive solo recordings for BIS have got an international acclaim. Passionate for his instrument, Prof. Delangle goes beyond the work of the soloist and frequents the Musical Acoustic Laboratories of the University of Paris 7. His research on specific acoustics of the saxophone is a precious asset in his collaboration with composers and the Selmer Co. After obtaining several outstanding Premiers Prix at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, he was appointed professor in 1988, where he has created the most prestigious saxophone class in the world.
The pianist Odile Catelin-Delangle was born in Avignon (France). Her predilection for chamber music led her to perform with numerous partners: in Australia with Philippe Cuper, soloist clarinet at the OperaOrchestra of Paris, during musical cruises with the cellist Alain Meunier, the oboist David Walter, the violinist Alexis Galpérine; she has been in many tours with the percussionist Jean Geoffroy, the accordionist Max Bonnay and the singer Susanna Moncayo; she works with the violinist Diana Cazaban and records the Beethoven Quintet with the Diastema Quartet. Her repertoire is vast and shows a great liking for twentieth century music. She has performed in eighty premieres (Denisov, Taïra, Nodaïra, Hosokawa, Louvier, etc.) and has carried out regular work with numerous composers as an interpreter but also as pedagogue in her class at the Ecole Normale de Musique of Paris where she receives many foreign students (Europe, USA, Canada, Argentina, Chile, Taiwan, China, Japan). She also gives master classes on French music; she has a predilection for Debussy, Ravel, Messiaen and Dutilleux. It was at the Ecole Normale where she carried out her advanced studies under the direction of the great pedagogue Germaine Mounier and where she obtained her “Teaching degree” and her “Concert degree”, unanimously. She owes her particular sense of phrasing and colour to the master classes received from the great pedagogue Maria Curcio. Since the 80s she has visited every corner of the planet with her husband, the saxophonist Claude Delangle, and has recorded with him about fifteen discs, mainly for the Swedish firm BIS. Their encounter dates back to their common beginnings at the Conservatoire National de Région in Lyon. Mrs. Delangle has been awarded at the international competitions Maria Canals of Barcelona (Spain) and of Geneva (Switzerland).
