Brégent: Portraits romantiques (1966, version 1988 / extraits)

Christina Petrowska Quilico performs works by Michel-Georges Brégent

In the words of Michel-Georges Brégent “The link between emotions and the mathematical is not very obvious. I discovered this to be true in creating Portraits pour piano. I still needed a dramatic rise with a pianist playing as though they were simultaneously 6 pianists playing at once. At some point, I intuitively hit a ceiling… using mathematics, I managed to make this man walk one step further. I also realized that if we speak about an emotion as love, (…) in music this can be expressed mathematically… Express oneself. Express one’s freedom and subjectivity. Extract the coldness and the yoke of rationality and structural “parametric” thought where everything is subject to analysis. These Portraits for the piano draw or depict states yet to be, illustrate social situations, occupations and jobs. They are the logical result complimenting the transcendental executions of Liszt and Liapunov, and the studies of Chopin, Scriabine and Rachmaninoff.”
