Berceuse pour …

This relatively simple and short piece was written in March 2019 for my son Romain while he was still in his mother’s womb. As, at the time, we did not know the sex of the yet-to-be-born child, I called the piece “Berceuse pour …”. I played this lullaby almost every evening after his birth, curious to know whether, once born, listening to the music he heard in utero would have the effect of calming him and soothing his cries. To tell the truth, the aria of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” soon proved to be more effective, even if “Berceuse pour…” was always among the pieces chosen to help him fall asleep.

The left hand imposes on the piece the unchanging and hypnotic slow swinging motion characteristic of a lullaby, leaving the right hand free to design a sinuating and melancholic melody above it.

The first public performance of this piece was for the radio programme « Nomade » (June 3rd, 2019), on the microphone of Yves Bron (Espace 2 / RTS).
