Hiver [Winter] translates feelings of standstill time, monotonous silence, frost and warm cocoon, all elements tied to how we picture winter. These are reflected in the themes imagined for each tableau: Jeux de pas sur la neige [Footsteps on The Snow], Jeux monotones [Monotonous Games], Jeux de grains au coin du feu [Games of Grains by The Fire], and Jeux de sons [Sound Games] (a tribute to Bernard Parmegiani). Claude Debussy, Franz Schubert, Hugues Dufourt, Francis Poulenc, Paul Hindemith and Bernard Parmegiani (who inspired the writing through inlays and attack substitutions from the 1st and 7th movements of his De natura sonorum) are this season’s imagined or dynamic references.
[English translation: François Couture, v-20]
