Trio le matin
String Trio le Matin is the result of a commission by Françoise Gnéri (to whom the work is dedicated), for her Sanary en Musique festival at which it was premiered on August 22, 2018.
Why Le Matin? Not to pay homage to Haydn’s symphonies Matin, Midi, Soir, but rather to laugh at how difficult it can sometimes be to get going for the day.
I – Early Morning: a muddy, difficult, chromatic and unstable morning, in a song that is nonetheless ornate.
II – Coffee-time: the hour of the blissful substance that Bach himself praised in a famous Cantata; caffeine brings stability to instability, superimposing motifs of different durations, a tribute to the repetitive.
III – Shower: The step before true awakening, moving harmonics…
IV – Irish Coffe: Because why not! And also to sing with energy these Celtic lands with danceable music, reminiscent here of Frankie Gavin and his way of embellishing certain traditional songs.
May this Matin wake the dead!
