A promotional video for Ex Tempore, our debut album from Leaf-Music, Halifax is now available on YouTube!
Ex Tempore is the debut album from the Nova Scotia-based Charke-Cormier duo. Derek Charke (flute) and Eugene Cormier (guitar) have curated a charming program that includes an original composition by Charke (Ex Tempore), arrangements of Handel and Scarlatti by Cormier paired with works by Peter Maxwell Davies and Brazilian-Canadian composer Celso Machado.
The Charke~Cormier duo recently performed at the 10th Acadia New Music Festival, and premiered a new work by Adam Langille. The entire concert is available on YouTube.
Very excited to announce that Doberman-Yppan (Les Productions d’Oz) from Québec is now the official publisher of our arrangements and compositions for the Charke~Cormier Duo! Two works have been released: 4 Sonatas by D. Scarlatti and arranged by Eugene Cormier, and Ex Tempore by Derek Charke.
