PAUL DESENNE

Bio

Paul Desenne’s tricultural vantage point on today’s musical world blends anthropological accuracy, conceptual diversity and musical abstraction in a vast body of work; passionate, often quite elaborate constructions in rhythmic counterpoint explore the formidable avenues of Latin American concert-music. 

A lush, quirky and irresistibly rhythmic style reflects an insatiable curiosity, subversive humor at times, and a wide-open creative lens in a catalogue spanning over 90 works, with hundreds of pieces in nearly every imaginable format.

 

Venezuelan, French and American cellist & composer.
