De Cendres et d’encre
…Like a permanent oscillation of life…
De Cendres et d’Encre was premiered at the Erik Satie auditorium of the Conservatoire Régional de La Courneuve, on February 8, 2009, by Alain Damiens, clarinet, the work’s dedicatee, and Nicolas Dessenne, piano.
At the time of the premiere, the third movement, Précis et lumineux, did not include the “cadenza” (bars 43 to 53) present in this edition.
Christian Dachez’s original manuscript moves from bar 42 to bar 54 by a set of 3 bars, reproduced below, with bar 54 of this first edition corresponding to bar 46 of the original manuscript.
This addition, following the premiere, was written by the composer at the request of Alain Damiens, to “develop a virtuoso passage”.
