Into the forest my wounded arms wide open

Louis Dufort

Programme notes

The title Into the forest my wounded arms wide open underpins a cathartic space where the human psyche is exposed to this imperial forest.

[English translation: François Couture, vii-21]


Into the forest my wounded arms wide open was developed over several years, then revised and finalized in 2020-21 at the composer’s studio in Montréal (Québec). A draft version was presented on April 7, 2016 at the concert Électrochoc 6 at the Studio multimédia of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.
