Dedication : à Carson P. Cooman, in memoriam Robert Boisseau

Duration : ca. 17:00

Notes en français

The day I thought about writing a concerto for organ and orchestra, I was led, no doubt as everyone who writes an organ concerto has been, to think of the Handel concerti and that one of Poulenc.

Between the minimalism of Handel and the strange formalism of Poulenc, it was necessary to find something...

That is why, as in the case of the well-known Poulenc work, this is a concerto with strings and tympani. In addition to the timpani, however, I I decided to add also a vibraphone, chimes, and other small percussion instruments. Like the Handel concerti, it is in three movements.

"All of this is terribly classical!" you tell me...

Well, yes...

Everything in this work is treated in a classical manner. But I tried to find, with the important vibraphone part in particular, new sound colors to blend with the organ.

The work is tonal and especially jubilant and affirming.

For the fun of it?

Yes, I'm afraid so...
