These three pieces could be classified as ‘program music,’ since they are all based on a literary argument.

Ombres, espaces, silences… came from Jacques Lacarrière’s 1975 book Men Possessed by God. Entre les deux rives du printemps is an attempt at setting to music my impressions while reading Part Three of Dante’s great poem The Divine Comedy. Le miroir triste is kind of a ‘cinema for the ear,’ based on an unshot scenario by Andrey Tarkovsky entitled Hoffmanniana (1975).
