‘Nocturne de Chopin’ pour piano à six mains (2010)

In Program Notes on December 30, 2010 at 4:33 am

I like to compose unusual instrumentations.
The other day, a colleague pianist gave me the task to arrange one of the famous nocturne of Chopin (Op.9-2 E-flat major) for piano 6 hands of professional pianists.

In the past, I have composed a piece for piano right hand, it has been one of my main works, but this time, 6 hands!
As if that was gymnastics in a crowded train.

In general, most contemporary compositions are too difficult to enjoy.
But in the case of an arrangement, I expect that I would be able to entertain the audience with contemporary composition technique, transforming musical figure by using from one hand to six hands of three pianists…like an arabesque.
