Un Loup affamé, for piano and narrator, was written in April 2017. It was premiered on July 23, 2017 at the Musique à la ferme festival, with Jérémie Honnoré (pianist, dedicatee and artistic director of the festival) and François Castang, narrator. I wanted to give this short story the form of a baroque suite, with successively a French overture, an invention, a recitative, an allemande, a minuet, a sarabande, a chasse and finally a badinerie (in quotations).
Nevertheless, the piece is played as a whole, the literary content leading almost to music for a drawing… animated by the two artists. At the end, I also borrow from Bach, SaintSaëns and Beethoven. May they forgive me, I found it so funny.
