Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “This piece by Claude Berset, with poems by Robert Desnos was born from the meeting of two ideas. First, Claude has long intended to compose a kind of mini-concertos for very young pianists and for my concern, I have always been dazzled by the timeless beauty and fantasy poetry of Robert Desnos, surrealist poet français. En 2002 the Menagerie took shape and began to move to a memorable tour, starting at the Conservatory of la Chaux-de-Fonds, arrived in Geneva at the Red Cross Museum with 17 pianists and a quartet. It was taken two years ago by a team of professors from the Conservatoire Populaire of Geneva, in an excellent version run entirely by children. Mireille Bellenot“

    Few words by Claude Berset:

    “Referring to the classical chamber music literature, the piano is highly valued, the strings on highlight (I think such trios by Haydn, Mozart, later Chos-takovitch). My idea is usually to reverse the relationship between these two entities, first-pia nist young inexperienced becomes soloist and the quartet of musicians put their skills to the service.“

    “I wrote without a priori, the aim being to sound the piano convincingly, with very few notes and simple ways. The young pianist can play with two fingers, giving a very soloist sound impression and full of brio. We will discover few winks Stravinsky, Debussy, Jazz,Reich ...“

    “A dialogue of young pianists with experienced musicians for me seemed a major attraction for both parts. This creates a taking account of young performers, with their resources and their fresh understanding of music, as true partners, even if their technical capabilities are in development.“
