Ostinato n°1

The ostinato n°1 is a piece which is of use as conclusion to the suite for piano "Saint Quentin, ville nouvelle" although having before been written. It follows upon a prelude, and the group honours the children of the School of Saint François d' Assise de Montigny Le Bretonneux who were the victims of the avalanche of Orres in January, 1998. It is dedicated to Estelle, a pupil, who had the luck to be alive.

Fax to Elise

The short version of Fax à Elise whom you can download here is the first part of a composition which makes 4 minutes 30. The long version was written for a spectacle of dance and piano the first of which took place in the Cultural Space Alphonse Daudet of Coignières in May, 2001. I imagine the history of a child working his exercises on the subject of the " Letter to Elise " and which dreams that he becomes a pianist, the fingers playing without efforts on the keyboard, reinventing Beethoven's work.

Romain Rolland said of him: "He is far more than the first musicians. He is the mosted force of modern art." Strongly marked by the occurrence of deafness, nevertheless he has a major impact on all Western music.

Last great figure of the classical period, Romantic style succeeded him naturally. His work affirms the independence of artists and power of free creation.

Modern

Modernism was essentially an outgrowth of historicism. It is referring from about the first part to the second part of the 20th century.

It didn't break with the Classical and Romantic period as the visual arts and literature. However, this style has no clear unity, it is characterized by an abundance of experiences and innovations.
