Michel Lysight on Radio Kiosk

Une formidable émission sur Kiosk Radio qui vous permettra de découvrir des extraits de trois de mes œuvres (“L’Œuvre au Rouge” par Tetracelli, “Oréades” et “Les Chants de Casanova”) ainsi que d’autres pièces de compositeurs belges (César Franck, Joseph Jongen etc.). Merci à Olivier Verset, qui décloisonne le “classique” pour le faire partager par le plus grand nombre.

Chronographie XII score is published

Chronographie XII (2019) is my second piece composed for violin, clarinet and piano, the first is Runes (same publisher). Many composers used this interesting instrumental combination (Stravinsky, Bartók, Milhaud, Sculthorpe…), and I was very happy when the Erämaa Trio asked to compose a new piece for him. World Premiere by this ensemble 24th November 2019 in Salon Bugrane (Brussels, Belgium).

This work belongs to the New Consonant Music label of my publisher.

Prélude et Toccata is published

Prelude and Toccata (1982) can be considered as my Opus 1.

These two very short pieces for piano are the only ones in his catalog to appeal to the twelve-tone serial technique, although in a very weak manner, other influences being quite perceptible in the Toccata. My language having changed dramatically in another direction from the following works, it could have rejected this work of youth made in composition class at the conservatory. I nevertheless wanted it to be published, considering that it represents a stage in my research for a personal style.

Prelude and Toccata belongs to the New Consonant Music label of my publisher.
