C'est un jardin secret, ma soeur, ma fiancée, une source scellée, une fontaine close...

Note

C'est un jardin secret..., written as a wedding present for two of the composer's friends, is an exquisite miniature encapsulating many characteristics of Murail's music on an intimate scale. A short sequence of processes, featuring sliding tempi and subtle fluctuations of finger and bowing pressure, is neatly concluded by a mysterious ascending figure.
The title is a quotation from the Song of Songs.
