Les Heures de la nuit

— May 2024

Opus : 6 / Type d'œuvre : Pour Instruments

From dawn to the very end of the night, this work follows the path of light over a period of twenty-four hours, and its effects on a landscape of land and sea. The full sun splits into a shimmering dance on the water surface, and the last glitters of the day sound like a lamento extendeded by the harsh sounds of the cymbalum in the progressing gloom.

The form of the work is inspired by the monastic office.
