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.

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.
