This concerto is a tribute to the writer Michel Tournier. I wanted, through my work, to get closer to the grandeur and inaccessible beauty into which he transports you in his work.
“Sun, deliver me from gravity. Wash my blood of its thick humors, which protect me from prodigality and improvidence, but which break the momentum of my youth and extinguish my joie de vivre…
Teach me irony. This swaying of the head… the better to denounce and untie these two cramps, stupidity and wickedness… I am your witness standing on this earth, like a sword dipped in your flame.”
Michel Tournier, Vendredi et les limbes du Pacifique
If it’s a question of trying to escape the telluric world, it’s also a desire to exorcise, “Beyond…”, the past…
I love the sun that gives life.
Premiered on November 14, 2009 in Perpignan by the Orchestre Perpignan-Méditerranée, conducted by Daniel Tosi, with Timothé Tosi as soloist.
