Ebène sur ivoire
(Ebony above ivory)

Duration : ~ 3’30
Publisher : Editions Billaudot

Commissioned by the publisher Gérard-Billaudot-Editeur for its collection « Clavier d’avenir » (“Future’s keyboard”), this little study forces the right hand to stay on the black keys, when the left hand settles on the white ones.

A series of virtuoso arabesques frame a more quiet and meditative central part.
