“Jean-Michel Defayes Sea Suite is a really nice set of six pieces portraying sea animals. Written for Bb Saxhorn, Bass Tuba or Euphonium, with Piano accompaniment, these six pieces are of medium/high difficulty. Each piece tries to re-create the main characteristics of the animal depicted, such as their weight, using the low range of the instruments and their speed, with the Dolphin being faster and lighter than the Sea Lion for example. The Piano accompaniment also uses numerous atonal chords. It features: 1. Lotarie - The Sea Lion, 135 2. Le cachalot - The Sperm Whale, 130 3. Le requin - The Shark, 120 4. Léléphant de mer - The Elephant Seal, 120 5. Le baleineau The Whale Calf, 053 6. Le dauphin The Dolphin, 120 The book includes an insert with the instrument-only parts. As a pianist, composer, producer and arranger, Jean-Michel Defaye mainly created pieces for brass and wind instruments. He won the Premier Second Grand Prix de Rome in 1958 and the Belgian Queen Elizabeth composition competition in 1959.”
