  • Five works bound together by pulsation, rhythm and the influence and inspiration of "popular" music. Tombeau by Hurel refers to the extremely rhythmic piano solo of Vortex temporum by Gérard Grisey and moves away, notably in the second movement, from western tempo to put in place a ritual element come from elsewhere.
    As for A bâtons rompus, it draws from jazz its unrestrained rhythm, riff writing and the intense melody of the saxophone, evocative of the "chorus".
    Localized corrosion draws inspiration from jazz-rock for its rhythm andfrom rock even in its writing for the guitar.
    Echoing Hurel's pieces, Bartok's Romanian dances are, as all know, a rhythmic and harmonic work on popular themes dear to the composer. Finally in Ravel's Sonata, the blues makes an appearance between two movements with implacable rhythm and the piece reminds us of how attentive the composer was to the diversity of music in the effervescent world of interwar years. No trace of copying, plagiarism or of a second rate "folkloric" style, but the wish for the composer to play with influences and models and to bend them into his music.
