   Tribulations d'un ecureuil lambda
(7 piano works) 2002

Third opus for my instrument, wrote after Rhythmics and Repetitives. After this concert creation with the Francois-Rene Duchable's and Helene Berger's piano duo performance, I begin to write solo piano works in an identical vein. During one of my usual walks, I come face to face with a squirrel. The fear of my presence gives him a great excitement. It amazes, amuses and inspires me. This squirrel Lambda, as I call him, is going to be the origin of these 7 transcendent solo piano works. Like in all my piano compositions, inspiration comes to me on the keyboard. It's not the case in my orchestral works where pencil and score are the lonely masters. It emerges that they always own this pianistic improvisation character. The major part of my work on them, during the writing time, is more similar to the architect job, sculpting and pottering. After a first abstract and global approach, I shape the musical material by subtraction better than addition technic. While working on this musical matter of which the "primary soup" was a chaos of notes, I deeply felt the Michelangelo Buenarotti's commentary who asserted "to not scuplter statues, only releasing them of their rock gangue"... These works are fast, positive, joyful. The performer needs an updated XXth century classical and jazz piano level.

A sublime version of Tribulations d'un ecureuil lambda (III., IV., VII.) is now available under the pianist Jose Eduardo MARTINS' fingers in his new opus Retour vers l'Enfance producted by ESOLEM PRODUCTION, released in July 2020.
