Les Travaux et les jours

Note

Les Travaux et les Jours is connected in a certain way to Territoires de l'Oubli, but listening to the resonances of the piano in a different manner. The work also looks to resolve a formal problem: 9 independent pieces, but minutely intertwined. The music revolves around a B-C tremolo and is supported on the resonance of a low F which is only unveiled right at the end of the cycle - as in Territoires de l'Oubli, allowing the loop to be closed... for now.
