Hommage à Jean Langlais

composer
2006

 
This symphonic fresco is a homage to my great friend and master, composer and organist, Jean Langlais. The work is developed in a rhapsodic style, conjugating the principle of sonata form with the variation. The thematic and certain modal or rhythmical characteristics are inspired by the organ work of the Master of Sainte Clotilde: Évocation (from Hommage à Rameau), Angélus (from Chants de Bretagne), free improvisation theme, theme from the first movement of the Première Symphonie, Prélude Modal (from Vingt-Quatre Pièces pour harmonium ou orgue), Acclamations (from Suite Médiévale), Lumen Christi (from Incantation pour un Jour Saint), Dialogue sur les mixtures (from Suite Brève), Salve Regina, Veni creator, Te Deum, Lavaromp ar chapeled (from Chants de Bretagne). This piece is a grateful testimony towards an artist and teacher with a blooming faith. Premiered by Naji Hakim, St Peter und Paul, Ratingen, 25 February 2007.
