Le chemin du vent des glaces

Le Chemin Written for a four cd collection of pieces inspired by the seasons (Les Saisons–LCD 2781126-27-28-29), Le chemin du vent des glaces is one of two pieces by Ferreyra on this set, Siesta Blanca being the other. Le chemin du vent des glaces covers a lot of ground in its only eleven minutes of rich and varied sound, so much so that I’m always taken aback when it ends so soon.

From its dramatic opening, great explosive sounds in the distance with short fragments of hiss in the foreground, to the various overlapping wind sounds mixed with all sorts of clicks and clatters and rumbling, and some of the sounds from the opening, to the shocking sound of a cork pulled out of a bottle and a drink being poured—over ice, of course—which introduces a section of people talking and laughing, and then back to the austere beauties that characterize the bulk of this piece, it’s a thrilling excursion, one you’ll want to take over and over again.
