“J’ai toujours pensé que L’Étude 12 de Heitor Villa-Lobos est l’une des pièces les plus « étranges » jamais composées pour la guitare. Elle est toute en glissements et en plaqués. Une étude sert traditionnellement à amener un aspect didactique pouvant aider l’étudiant à apprendre et devenir compétent au niveau du répertoire. Villa-Lobos, dans certaines de ses études, a inventé des combinaisons de techniques inusitées qui ne servent nulle part ailleurs dans le répertoire. C’est le cas dans l’Étude 12, inégalée en fait de virtuosité à ma connaissance pour le glissé et le plaqué combiné en plus d’une utilisation frénétique de descentes et montées à trois doigts. Cette pièce se vaut pour elle-même et ne ressemble à rien d’autre l’ayant précédé. J’interpréterai cette pièce dimanche prochain en concert…”

New York, Januariry 19th, 2014 Revolutionthreesixty

R. Some feel there is no need to record classical music any more, that it’s all been done before. what do you tell them?

E.L. I feel there will always be a way to express music that has been written on a sheet of paper with a fresh approach, with different colors, different feelings. I don’t know. I tend to avoid categorizing things. I would put it this way: On the one hand there is a tradition where music is written as notes on the paper first. On the other hand, there is another tradition that comes from the application of recording, or improvisation first (electroacoustic, pop, folk whatever). And there are all other possibilities in between these two traditions. I can’t imagine where all of this will bring us in decades from now with the next levels of development in computers, some other technologies and more sophisticated software. I think it will be pretty amazing in the next few decades or centuries. Music may become more interactive with the listener and may take some new directions by integrating some other unknown aspects of reality. It may take us to a more direct or intuitive organic ways in its expression. We are kind of getting there with the interactive technologies available now but we are not there yet, I think. We are still very far away from the sort of freedom I imagine possible.

I don’t know what Classical means anymore. If it means History, I’m out of it… But I certainly think you can play an ancient music in a contemporary way.

Vol de Nuit (scene 1)
Here’s a scene taken from the movie “Vol de Nuit”. This scene uses the same music than the Opening Title previously presented here. It is interesting to see how this soundtrack could be used in different contexts in the film. I composed this Music in 2011. It’s a dramatic film made by the Producer Stéphane Dirschauer from Toronto. Quite a interesting project to work on.

INTERVIEW, CIBL 101.5 FM 2011

CONCERT AT PAVILLON DE L’ENTREPÔT, LACHINE

Le dimanche 13 février dernier se produisait Eric F. Lemieux à la salle Pavillon de l’Entrepôt à Lachine. Le compositeur-guitariste de formation classique contemporaine a donné une prestation très riche et virtuose de son œuvre. Il a aussi présenté à son programme des musiques pour guitare de quelques compositeurs de la première moitié du XXe siècle dont Manuel de Falla et le célèbre compositeur brésilien Heitor Villa-Lobos dont il a interprété un préludes ainsi que quelques études.

Pour l’occasion, une attention toute particulière a été mise sur certains éléments de mise en scène. Notons un éclairage subtil assez tamisé avec en plus l’ajout de lanternes chinoises sur la scène. Tous ces éléments ont contribué à rehausser la qualité du spectacle et aussi à maintenir captive l’attention de l’auditoire. Il s’en dégageait une ambiance intimiste assez chaleureuse, on pourrait même dire une sorte de renouveau par rapport à la formule habituelle du récital en musique Classique. M. Lemieux présentait lui-même les pièces au fur et à mesure et commentait l’événement. Une musique somme toute assez accessible et mélodique bien que tout à fait moderne dans son essence. M. Lemieux prévoit allier musique et danse contemporaine lors d’une prochaine série de spectacles.

Review

Michael Barone, Minnesota Public Radio, The New Releases, March 25, 2010

Eric F Lemieux, "Three Suites for Guitar": From French Canadian soil, a modern fusion of styles here, always based on a poetic urge … intimate, individualistic, and conveyed with inviting immediacy.
