Miniature Idyllique (mp3)

He wrote it in secret for his fiancée as a surprise for their wedding ceremony. The first performance was on the 26 July 1977 by the Dinant Saxophone Quartet in which Alain De Rijckere replaced the young husband. In ABA form, the Miniature idyllique  takes us into a dream through the dialogue of the instruments and the search for subtle harmony in the adroit mixing of the sounds. This work presages the orchestration talent of the young composer. The piece finishes with the warm sounds of the low register of the saxophones in chords which open the doors of solid happiness.
