Millénaire (mp3)

This work is at one and the same time a work of synthesis and a work resolutely  turned towards the future. At the dawn of the third millennium, the composer wanted to express his desires and hopes. The piece questions us by its simultaneous chords surrounded by many rests. Bumpy rhythms announce the main theme which is sketched by the horns and the trumpets, accompanied by the rest of the orchestra in a rhythmical ostinato. After the exposition of the theme by the full orchestra, mystery and doubt arrive in the composer's heart: whole-tone harmonies and a melodic ascension announcing the third millennium. Without hesitation, the composer expresses his confidence, hope and joy by a majestic theme finishing the work with all the instruments. Just before the end, he surprises us by an ambiguous bitonal chord.
