“Pastorale” by Naji Hakim – A Stylistic Approach
Keywords:bassoon, Lebanon, style, performance, tradition
AbstractIn the musical field, Lebanese composers represent a living proof of a different approach to cult music, a symbiosis between tradition and avant-garde, between modern and oriental elements, folk music with melisma typical of traditional Lebanese music and western classical music of French inspiration. (this is due to the specialized studies carried out in France and here I would mention the Francophone contribution underlying the institutionalization of education in Lebanon). The privilege of performing Pastorale for bassoon solo by Naji Hakim, a work that was dedicated to me by the author and was experienced to its final sound value, gave me unforgettable moments from an interpretative point of view and a special honor to participate in such a collaboration.
