Sonatine bureaucratique


The Sonatine bureaucratique, a late work, is a straightforward pastiche of Clementi, depicting a day in the life of a leisurely civil servant. A verbal framework surrounds this amusing skit on the neoclassical style.

from notes by James Harding © 1989

Œuvre tardive, la Sonatine bureaucratique évoque, en un simple pastiche de Clementi, une journée dans la vie d’un fonctionnaire nonchalant. Tout un argument entoure cette amusante parodie du style néo-classique.
