For clarinet, horn, marimba, violin and cello.

Commissioned by the German Ensemble "Grenzpunkt" with the sponsorship of the SKE - Austro Mechana.

Premiered in Saarbrücken, Germany in January 2011.

The piece germinates from the study of the music of three icons of French composition: François Couperin (1668-1733), Claude Debussy (1862-1918) and Pierre Boulez (1925-2016). This study crystallizes in my piece both in the concrete musical material, like harmony and melodic articulation, and at the level of the syntax. The piece has nevertheless its own character, with returning suggestive passages, which emerge from the structure, and an irregular but comprehensible form.
