Orchestral works

Bologna strage del 02/08/1980 - Francoise Choveaux -

I have written many pieces for orchestra :
-  for strings Orchestra (symphonies, concerstück, concerto grosso…)
-  concerti for piano, 2 pianos, piano 4 hands, violin, cello, doublebass, trombone, soprano…
In my musical route, I like to work directly with orchestras and musicians. I send them music and, if they want me to write a piece dedicated, I do it with pleasure. For me, music is sharing.

Here are some works recorded in studio or in live, attached with some of my scores, downloadable for free. If you want more details about my works, don’t hesitate in sending me an e-mail.

Symphony Indigo for strings orchestra op.2
When I came back from the United States after finishing my studies in the Juilliard School of New York, I wrote this symphony in a small village in Flanders. I was living near to the painter Arthur Van Hecke, who was one of my friends. He knew how to paint beautifully the moving skies of Flanders.
All my strings symphonies are named after a color : this one is called indigo.
This piece has been played several times in France, Russia, and Brazil by numerous orchestras.

 

Concerto n°2 for violin and orchestra op.85
This concerto is inspired by Lithuania. I love this country so much, with its ambiances and landscapes with a lot of colours. Each movement include a cadence.

Serenade for strings orchestra op. 130
This Serenade is an homage to the town of  Saint-Petersburg. I have traveled to this city several times for concerts or to work with musicians or orchestras. For 12 years, I have been working with the Youth St-Petersburg Vasiliev Ostrov ‘s Strings Orchestra. Every year, this orchestra (one of the best in Europe) asks me to write a special piece for them, which they play during their summer tour.
In that Serenade, I have put all my love for St-Petersburg and all the emotions that its particular atmosphere make me feel.

Fantasy for clarinet and orchestra op.122
I have written a piece with a lot of contrasts, with as many colours and rhythms as italian landscapes. The clarinet follows its own way in all the tones and sound registers. The clarinet sings, playfully, but also with a lot of virtuosity. This work is a ceaseless dialog between the clarinet and the orchestra. This piece was ordered by Bologna Festival (Italie) and played by Fondation Toscanani ‘s Orchestra.

 

White Symphony for strings orchestra, organ and timpani op. 100

I have written this spiritual and mystic work in homage to Armand Marquiset, founder of the Charity Petits frères des Pauvres. The White Symphony was played for the first time in Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral. In every movement, the solos of organ alternate with the orchestral parts.

Two vocalises for strings orchestra and soprano op. 144 et 147
I have written these two songs especially for Evguenia Kravchenko, a russian soprano with an incredible voice and the Youth Youth St-Petersburg Vasiliev Ostrov ‘s Strings Orchestra.  These two works are of mystic inspiration. The first one is called : Angels’ s Voice because when spectators heard it for the first time, they told me that they have heard and imagined Angels.

Fairy Tale For Strings Orchestra op. 178
The music is the phantasmagorical sound illustration of a Russian popular tale called Morning, Evening and Midnight
