The composition PAVANE for alto saxophone and organ was recorded by Fabien Chouraki (sax) and Olivier Dekeister (organ) on the CD SAXORGUE in Paris. This CD presents composers who are all very fond of the organ and who have created a veritable synthesis of sound from the two instruments in dialogue... I am pleased to be published with such esteemed colleagues as Thierry ESCAICH, Naji HAKIM, Eric LEBRUN or Olivier MESSIAEN. "PAVANE" comes from the Latin "Piva", - the peacock! So was a peacock dance.... A proud dance where colourful feathered aristocrats could celebrate their power and nobility.
