Un Poème, rhapsodie for violin and orchestra was commissioned by the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris, on the initiative of Stéphanie Moraly and its director Xavier Delette.
Deeply influenced by Antony Gachet’s beautiful poem, I wanted to transcribe it into sound. I also chose to include it in the score, because at times, the music is defined by the poem’s prosody. Alternating between three main harmonic “colors”, the piece develops into a grand crescendo leading up to the cadenza passage. This cadenza is partly accompanied, in the spirit of an operatic recitative.
In Un Poème, I sought to materialize this very human trajectory, from chaos to transcendence.
