Trois Croquis

Trois Croquis série

Composed for violin and piano in 1990 as a compulsory piece for the Charles De Bériot Competition, the Trois Croquis is one of his most frequently performed works, which has led him to produce a great many versions, first transcribing the violin part for many other instruments, then orchestrating the piano part for string orchestra or clarinet ensemble, and finally producing a version for quartet or quintet or string orchestra.

In the many versions of this work we find several characteristics of his language: the melodic inspiration, the expressiveness, the harmonic colours and the subtlety of the orchestration. Several recordings have been made of it.
