Comme un écho lointain

On December 18th, 2020, Abigail Delpech played one of my compositions:

Comme un écho lointain

This is a pedagogic piece for piano. I have composed it just for Abigail. While talking with her, it turned out she likes complex harmonies, just like I do. Therefore, I decided to go for a slightly complicated harmonic progression. Then, it turned out I needed more than ten fingers to let come out the harmonies. This completely changed my plans: I realized I had to let myself be guided by the harmonic progression. As a consequence, I have been quite surprised by the resulting composition, but I am quite satisfied of it!

Many thanks to Abigail, which made some very good work on it, and gave a rather good rendition. I hope you enjoy it!
