About Le Temps

About the movements of the suite «Le Temps» (The Time)

Kronos… First I thought about a more peaceful sounding work with a title like «The Delights of Time». Then the piece changed slowly. A fast, dissonant sequence slipped into the middle of the movement and the beginning became dull, menacing together with the new title: Kronos, assimilated to god Cronos (or Saturn) but becoming the god of Time who devours his children.

L’attente (The Expectation) illustrating the second movement also appeared after the composition was finished, expressing at first quiet, even good-heartedness moods before impatience, irritation and hope begin to interfere. Alas, nothing happens, and no one arrives.

The third movement, L’urgence (The Emergency), rushes through the piece, with febrility and extreme agitation.

La nuit (The Night), the fourth movement, is expressing a feeling of infinity. Calm, soothing, suspended music.
