It was at the Paris Opera in 1928 that French musician and engineer Maurice Martenot introduced a brand new type of electronic instrument. With its seven-octave range and a sound palette amplified by speakers, the ondes Martenot opened up new and exciting possibilities for composers. Estelle Lemire, who teaches at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, presents a panorama of the repertoire written for this impressive instrument.
