WORKS FOR / WITH ACCORDION
(catalogue from November 15st, 2014)
M.682 : Rhapsodic Variations on themes by Rameau (2014) [10']
14 (+3) pages
This work, commissioned by the accordionist Sylvain Tissot, has been written on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the death of Rameau. It uses themes taken from several of his works for harpsichord and of Hippolyte et Aricie, freely varied and developed.
M.652 : Émergences (2006) [7']
for violin and accordion
10 (+3) pages
This work has been written for Marianne Piketty and Pascal Contet, on request of the Festival des Musicales d’Auberive (France). It is a little enigmatic work, basing itself on one hand on threatening, or even stormy clusters, and on impassive tritones, and, on the other hand, on lyrical of dreamy passages. The title can evoke the emergence of forces of the Subconscious, the emergence of physical or meteorological phenomena, or also the emergence of sonorous events, for instance the pianissimo apparition of the violin under a forte of the accordion.
