Excerpt

27/11/1993 - Tokyo - Bunka Kaikan - Tomoko Yazawa (piano)

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.
The music: a spiral centred on several ostinati of rhythm, colour and timbre - five "spectral" chords of variable appearance turn in the arms of the spiral.
This piece was commissioned by pianist Tomoko Yazawa and the French Ministry of Culture.
