Product Description

Tokyo-city (Piano) By : Allain Gaussin : Leduc Series : Softcover : Published by Alphonse Leduc : # AL30685
Tokyo-city by : Allain Gaussin

“Allain Gaussin; a pupil of Olivier Messiaen at the CNSM in Paris; and a veritable alchemist of sound; created a sensual and sparkling work that aims to induce in listeners the sort of internal awakening that the Japanese refer to as Satori the title given to a piece for solo clarinet he wrote in 1998. Composed a decade later; Tokyo-City for solo Piano draws on the same inspiration; fuelled by several stays in Japan. Gaussin sets out to reproduce the various sensations he experienced during his walks around the Japanese megalopolis: a fear of being swallowed up by its vastness gives way to a bedazzlement in the face of a buzzing universe awash with harmonies and colours. The work follows a dual symmetrical structure (in terms of register and tempo): after an enigmatic start entrusted to the low notes of the piano; a musical figure gradually emerges from floating polyphonies ; producing a veritable toccata which is slowly deformed; like an anaEmorphosis. Then; only a glimmering of crystal-clear harmonies remains; and the work ends sparsely on the highest notes of the piano.”
