Tombeau de Clémence Isaure
When Rolandas Muleika, director of the choir IsdaTus commissioned me this piece, I wanted to transcribe by harmony and melody the moods and scents of “la ville rose” [surname of the city of Toulouse, south of France]. From the translation of an Occitan poem from the Académie des Jeux Floraux in Toulouse (14th century?), the idea of a rich colorful harmony instantly imposed on me, like an echo of the rays of sparkling suns. which floods the city when spring awakens. This "tomb" of Clemence Isaure, the first woman poetess of the City is therefore a tribute to Letters and heritage that make the richness of this place, between mountains and seas; place nestled along the Garonne where it is good to live and contemplate.
