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.

Meditation on a new CD by Edenwood Duo!

A new CD has just been released : “ANOTHER PLACE”, with my work Meditation.

At a time when national identity is often swallowed up in an increasingly globalised world, some composers use art to keep their heritage alive, while others heed the sirens’ calls and drift to distant and exotic worlds. The Edenwood Duo’s selection for their new album reflects this ambivalence through pieces that blend composers’ roots with rhythms and melodies from elsewhere. Since music has the incredible power to transport the listener to a different space, Another Place will sometimes be just that – another place, sometimes another culture, another time or spiritual experience. A selection of works written originally for the unusual duo of classical guitar and cello over the past 30 years: music by Ester Magi, Mathias Duplessy, Armand Coeck, Nathan Kolosko, Michel Lysight & Raffaele Bellafronte.
