Composed especially for Dr. WONG Tak Chiu, saxophonist from Hong Kong, TRIBUTE TO MISTER L. is a tone poem using the 7 main themes from the Jean-Philippe VANBESELAERE's "Suite Concertante" composed in 2009 for Violin and Orchestra, dedicated to Mister Didier Lockwood, world-renowned jazz violinist.
Should we see there any relation with all the symbolism linked to this prime number ? (7 days of the creation of the Earth, 7 colors of the Rainbow, 7 Wonders of the World, 7 notes of the diatonic scale, or the symbol of life among the Egyptians ...)
Jean-Philippe Vanbeselaere first of all had fun writing music rich in different atmospheres, colors and rhythms, like a patchwork in which the soloist can express his many musical qualities while interacting with an orchestra with constantly renewed sounds.
