Music to Hear

Année de composition
13 minutes
7 voices and instrumental ensemble : 3 sopranos, 2 mezzo-sopranos, 2 tenors, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, cello, double bass

It is with great joy that I worked with the Musicatreize ensemble and its conductor Roland Hayrabedian in their creative cycle for “Musique, an 13′. This work is composed of several sonnets by William Shakespeare that I have adapted while preserving the original language:


1 – Music to hear I: an introduction in a game close to “hiccups”
2 – Slight Air: breaths, whispers, hand rubs and small melodies
3 – Alack: first tribute to the Beatles
4 – When to the sessions of sweet silent: a very soft and sad song
5 – Which, which, which: second tribute to the Beatles
6 – O! from what: where the singers finally ask the tenors to shut up with a big “shush!”
7 – Music to hear II: a “goodbye” from the singers to the audience.
