(…en paysage de nuit…)


For ensemble with amplified viola d’amore (ca.10′) (2010)

Between 2005 and 2008, I composed my (…Passages…)-cycle, consisting of four pieces, which are entirely constructed around similar, recurring musical ideas developing in different ways and directions. Later on, some ideas of the (…Passages…)-cycle were transformed and elaborated in (trois études scénographiques) (2008-2010), for mezzo soprano and ensemble. The piece (…en paysage de nuit…) (2010), for ensemble with amplified viola d’amore, is the last part of the Passages/Paysages project. This composition starts with some gestures and textures which were introduced before in (trois études scénographiques), but soon it takes a different direction.
