Composer: Denis Gougeon

Saxophone-Mercure is one of the 10 pieces grouped under the title SIX THÈMES SOLAIRES composed at the request of the Canadian Music Competition for the Tremplin International 1990. At the outset, there is the Piano-Sun which symbolizes raw energy, intense heat, radiation, diffusion ... this energy, this light illuminates each planet in a different "day". Saxophone-Mercure is therefore a variation of the music-light of the sun.
