Samples

Pieces

  1. Mauve
    A quiet piece interspersed with lyrical surges. Although it was written some twenty years ago, it transcends time. This “masterpiece” remained untitled for many years before its author gave it a name. Will this piece now make a name for its composer?
  2. Pierrot (Le Pierrot)
    From boiling emotion to tender passion—the raw and pure emotions of adolescence. Pierre was a seventeen-year-old in the throes of emotional turmoil when he wrote this piece. It is as timeless as it is enduring.
  3. Daisy (Marguerite)
    “Daisy” blossomed like a flower. She was an exquisitely uncomplicated woman for whom music was an absolute treasure.
  4. Baptiste’s monkey (Le singe à Baptiste)
    A piece written one “St. John the Baptist” night (June 24th). In this playful duet, “Papa” monkey is accompanied by his “little” monkey, his daughter Élise.
  5. Whiskers (Moustaches)
    Written in memory of a doctor with a “handlebar” moustache who loved his patients as much as his whiskers were long.
  6. Lunar turbulence (Turbulence lunaire)
    Human emotions, like the tides, ebb and flow.
  7. The kite (Le cerf-volant)
    Homage to a man of contrasts; a gentle giant who, especially in his final days, imparted love and wisdom.
  8. So far, so close (Si loin, si-près)
    A much-loved mother leaves this earth. The pain is vivid, the memories even more so.
  9. The old bell tower (Le vieux clocher)
    Let the melody wash over you like waves, gradually rising and slowly receding.
  10. Varna
    An unpretentious waltz that owes its name to a beautiful Bulgarian village.
  11. O deus (Aux dieux)
    Ode to a time when life metamorphosed into magnificent butterflies and flights of geese, amid rolling mountains and sometimes roller coasters.
  12. PaSage (PasSage)
    A tribute to the father of a true friend, a genuine man who inspired others until the day he left this earth and continues to do so “from beyond”.
  13. Sam s’amuse
    A “turbulent” Saturday night…
  14. Sorry Maria (Navré Maria)
    A “solemn” finale and a wink of the eye to Charles Gounod and his Ave Maria. Although the composer realized after completing the piece that it may have been slightly influenced, it was too beautiful to abandon. It was, after all, his progeny.
