Les jardins d'autre monde


Diapason, 5 diapasons

Les jardins d’autre monde: each tableaux or scenes are sonic representations and spiritual evocations of the graves of the four successive emperors who reigned in Hué, the former capital of Vietnam, from the beginning of the 19th century until 1883.
I drew my inspiration from the Perfume River that bathes the city of Hué and composed Et la rivière chante l’éternité for string trio. Yet the theme of the piece is not the river itself, but rather a meditation on the passing of time which, like a river, flows on for ever.
Based on poems by the great 8th century Chinese poet Li Po, Poèmes is a succession of scenes, after the technique of classical Chinese painting: a few brushstrokes are enough to depict the communion between man and nature.
