V110-1 Choir score
Caroline Charrière (1960-2018)
Born 1960 in Fribourg (Switzerland), Caroline Charrière has accomplished flute studies at the Lausanne Conservatory (with Pierre Wavre) and completed them with Aurèle Nicolet and at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (GB). During the same time, she studied orchestration and composition with the Swiss composer Jean Balissat and conducting (Lausanne Conservatory, Hervé Klopfenstein)....
What makes an identity? 4 various musical descriptions expressing the concepts of Switzerland, and what seems is the essence of each section of the country and its particular linguistic energy.
This piece reminds the canton of Fribourg. Two aspects are present here: The farmer’s life (with livestock climbing to the mountain pastures), and the catholic religion. One can also hear two short quotes from traditional local songs: the “Ranz des vaches”, and the Prayer song performed in local dialect, Nouthra Dona di Maortse, in which the title is the name of a small chapel in the district of Gruyère.
