Like a fantasia said of the Reminiscences
For two pianos

Christine Lagniel and Michel Maurer – piano
It is here a true recomposition of the Scene du va et vient (1980), starting from the same themes and of the same ideas. The composition develops on particularly dancing elements while appear, in the deforming mirror of the memory, the reminiscences of the well tempered piano of Johann-Sebastien Bach, kind of bedside book, sampled and handled in a hazardous cycle. This fantasia, which balances between an obsessional formula and fragments of memory, is perhaps like a homage.
