Commissioned piece of the 7th Competition – 2017

Composer : Marc-Olivier Dupin
Title : Brins de sons (piano et chorus)
Commission of Orleans International Competition for the 7th  International piano competition of Orléans for youth « Brin d’herbe ».

Note of intent from Marc-Olivier Dupin
Orleans International Competition order for “Brin d’herbe” honors and delight me. As a composer essentially turned towards pluridisciplinarity – the mixing of different performing arts -, I wrote a set of several pieces on the subject of nursery rhymes. This musical genre often despised by a people too serious … includes as many wonders as a melodic plane in the invention of texts that play with language. My project was finished with pieces for piano and singing, from some notes of well-known repertoire of kindergartens and primary schools, to be sung solo or by children’s choir accompanied by a piano to support it but also facetious … This approach is as far as possible activist in my quest for gateway between music in school and special education in conservatories. Illustrious predecessors have written so-called educational pieces of music: Bach, Schumann, and closer to us Bartók, Kodály and Kurtág. I would like to dedicate them with humility and love of all the pieces I wrote for “Brin d’herbe”.
