Le château des brouillards

Inspired by the famous building in Montmartre where many artists have lived, including the great painter Auguste Renoir, I composed this piece for my daughter Laetitia, who at the time had only been playing the piano for three years. I therefore wrote a relatively easy part for the first piano and a significantly more demanding part for the second piano. I tried to translate into music the impressions that the title suggests: very chromatic and misty musical language that evokes a mysterious, even disturbing atmosphere corresponding to the dismay that the residents of Montmartre must have felt when they saw the inexplicable vapours and clouds issuing from this grand old building.
