Despointes 274 Cast-Iron Steps For Solo Contrabassoon (score)

0.00

The light house with 247 cast‐iron steps is located in Amedee islet, north of New Caledonia. In the eyes of the islet’s Melanesian inhabitants, it has remained a symbol of white oppression for the last 47 years. This work sets to music the ruthless mission of French General Fevrier Despointes who proclaimed New Caledonia French territory in 1963, and by contrast, a traditional chant of the Melanese people, who’s way of life was to be altered indefinitely.
