La Mandragore ("The Mandrake")
"Under the gallows grows the mandrake. At midnight, when the moon is full, it is picked beneath the hanged man who swings..."
The mandrake: a Mediterranean plant used in witchcraft Due to its mot in the shape of a homunculus, it is believed to have magic powers.

This piece was commissioned by pianist Tomoko Yazawa and the French Ministry of Culture.
