The intention of this cycle of works is to familiarize the young musician with issues that are common in today's scores. From the time of their youth, they should acquire a taste for experimentation and this spirit of sonic adventure should be preserved when they study scores from the traditional repertoire.
Thus, in the first piece VIBRANDOUR - AZNAVOUR, the musician will use different types of vibrato; two short musical figures are derived from Charles Aznavour's hit Hier encore. The second part, EARTHY VIBES, highlights the beauty of the instrument's low register, the use of glissando and also of the multiphonic sounds. In part three, TOUGH & BRASSY, the musician's endurance will be put to the test, rapid changes in articulation and sonority presenting challenges throughout the piece. In part IV, PIS, PIS, PIS - PIECE FOR BIS, using the pissicato technique (from the Romanian word for cat) the musician is guided to find the right sonority and intuit the character of the work in accordance with the slippery nature of the cat. In the last part of the work, BASCELERANDO, the ever-changing agogic will probably become the greatest challenge for the musician.
