Golden Drops I

(
1998
)
Saxophone quartet

This piece is a cycle of seven miniatures, composed after visiting an exhibition of gold objects, dating from pre-Colombian times. The strange beauty of these small sculptures, coming from a world long gone, made me reflect on the question of the spiritual in human societies, from the most archaic times until today.

Caught up in the whirlwind of everyday life, we very often forget to take a few moments to contemplate the beauty of a flower, a landscape or an object of art ...

Therefore, I would be happy if this piece offered you a few moments of meditation, reflection or respite.
