01. Vulcano (for ensemble of 29 musicians)
02. Art of Metal I for Metal Clarinet Contrabass and Ensemble of 17 Musicians
03. Art of Metal III for metal clarinet contrabass, ensemble of 18 musicians and electronics

Yann Robin is a young composer of contemporary music and is based in Paris. These pieces, Vulcano (for ensemble of 29 musicians), Art of Metal I (written for an all-metal bass clarinet and 17 musicians), and Art of Metal III for the same bass clarinet but fewer musicians, represent explosive writing and sounds but scored in a very approachable way.


“The cycle’s connecting thread, the driving idea, is a metaphorical approach to what metal brings to mind, this alloy often synonymous with strength, power, solidity, energy, brilliance, shine…” (Yann Robin)
