Chant nostalgique



Chant nostalgique




Composition : 2004


For sopranino and tenor saxophons with acousmatic part

dedicated to Fabien Chouraki


9 min


An old traditional song was sometimes sounding in my head: it was a love song.

A clear and quiet evolution, with some very short but distinctive five snatches.

I extracted to place each of them at the beginning of five parts. The saxophon plays with the acousmatic part in a more or less virtuoso or dynamic or soft relation. The sounding environment is, one more, vibrating, with some roughed, instable and delicate sonorities. It follows some slow trajectories.
