Petite Suite

composer
1983

 
This triptych makes a free reference to the Iberic baroque organ and music. The opening movement, Diferencias, presents a set of variations in a light and naïve character. The theme of Prélude modal (from Vingt-quatre pièces for organ or harmonium) by Jean Langlais is quoted. The second movement, Falsas is a play on dissonances evolving as a harmonic labyrinth. The concluding Batalla displays the brightness of the reeds in a popular and festive mood, paying a tribute to the Virgin through the quotation of the hymn Virgo Dei genitrix. Premiered by Naji Hakim, Abdij van Berne, Heeswijk, Holland, June 1984.
