Orchestrated in a rather jazzy instrumentation, Rencontres departs from such an ambience and explores common musical material in terms of melodic and rhythmic motifs, intervallic relationships as well as playing techniques. At times, the saxophone is used percussively in increments of the primary motif, the vibraphone journeys upon variations of previously stated lyrical lines, the double bass abruptly appears in fast and short arco fragments interrupting its pizzicati as well as the brilliance and the metallic timbre of the soprano saxophone, vibraphone and crotales. The constant dialogue among their different personalities and the exchange of material reflect a quest for common musical elements as they travel together through the four sections
