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.

After much fighting, Giuseppe Verdi composed a work gradually (mostly operas) whose success will grow up to become one of the largest in the history of musical theater.

Renaissance

Renaissance

The revival of interest in Greek and Roman culture between the 15th and 16th century influenced significantly the art in general and especially music.

The beginning of the Renaissance in music is a point of debate but the end date is hardly contestable because it marked the entry into the Baroque period. Invention of printing allowed a wide dissemination in Europe and took part in outbreak of many composers.
