Score

Programme notes

Trèfle is a five-part composition blending an actual score with loose instructions for improvised sections. The interpreters — under no conductor — are free to choose when and for how long will play either their score and/or their set of instructions. “The idea of musical mirror is ever present, whether in harmony, counterpoint and melody or even on a formal level. These mirrors are deformable and fractured; the images they reflect are blurry. Crazy reflections of blurry cloves (Fous reflets de trèfles fous).”
