Piano solo

I have written many works for piano. 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.

3 concerti for piano
Winter Concerto for piano op 126
The Four movements are musical paintings of travel stories in countries of snow where I lived or travelled. The 1st movement is a journey through wood since Saint-Petersburg in Novgorod; then we arrive to Novgorod, a city which amazed me by the number of Orthodox Churches. The 2nd movement is slow and peaceful in Franche-Comté. The spotless snow wraps the nature: I observe animals and I commune with the nature.
In the 3rd movement, I imagine myself aboard a troïka between Saint-Petersburg and Moscow in the XVIIIth. A joyful last great journey. In the 4th movement, the austerity of intense cold by extreme temperatures and the deserts of snow.

3 Sonatas 

Winter Sonata, American Sonata, Sonata n°3 Na Loba  (Commission from Communauté d’Agglomération de Carcassonne)

Winter Sonata op. 119
The first work I have written was a piece for piano. After that, I waited ten years before writing again for piano. As a pianist, I had acquired automatisms what bothered me to create. Today, I have gotten loose from all the piano literature I knew. This sonata inaugurates a series of sonatas about the seasons. During six years, I lived in Franche-Comté in a farm of the XVIIIth, in the mountains. A wild and often magic place especially in winter. This said winter sonata is certainly nostalgic but also these five movements are so many atmospheres: the snow-covered veil (1st), the snowstorm (2nd), the beauty of the sun reflections on the coat snow only staked out by less tracks of  wild animals (3rd),  happiness of the carefreeness (4th),  end of the winter (5th) ».

Sonata Na Loba op. 175
This Sonata is a homage to fin’amor. It is about the legend of the she-wolf La Loba. Some sounds reminded from the Middle Age.

Three Studies In Hommage To Chopin op. 61

I wrote three studies, one after the other, in the same movement. A big cry of love for  piano and a total freedom of writing. The N°1 is a study for agreement. Many soft and violent colors at the same time. The harmonious passages alternate with passionate passages. The N°2 is a study of suppleness. Excessively difficult. All the piano difficulties are concentrated in this study; it begins very slightly and ends as a volcano in a multitude of explosions. The N°3 is a study of arpeggios. It is doubtless the most piano and the most passionate with broken, very fluid and transparent arpeggios which burst out in a restless stream. The rumbling increases and stops only with the last note.


Three transcendent  Studies in Homage to Liszt op.62
I wrote these pieces when I came back from Lithuania. The first one describes a magnificent town with moving skies. The 2nd Kaunas reflects my impressions during my visit in this city which terribly suffered invasions. The 3rd is in accordance with the temperament of fire of this fabulous pianist and composer Liszt.

Suite languedocienne for piano op. 63
This theme and variations are inspired by the beautiful landscapes of the Cathar country. Villages hang on the heights and the vestiges of castles dominate vineyards. The castle of Aragon is a harbor of tranquillity. In the bend of a street, three women in apron crochet. Friendly people and enthusiasts of this country.

Little Suite for piano op. 46
The Prelude of this Little Suite evokes the fog that floats above fields and dissipates slowly during winter days, to arrive at this sad and very melancholic Waltz. As for full of life Toccatina, it reflects an exteriorized energy and evokes the violent winds of the North.
