Into the forest

Louis Dufort

Programme notes

This work delves into microstructures and their metaphorical reflections. This sets the stage for a parallel narrative between complex nature and dreamlike nature.

[English translation: François Couture, vii-21]

Into the forest was developed over several years, then revised and finalized in 2020-21 at the composer’s studio in Montréal (Québec).
