    Fétiches, five caprices for solo violin
    Presentation :
    Feiticio: thing made, amulet, device.
    These ritual objects that accompany us, protect us, reassure us in our daily lives, give shape to
    our fears, desires and passions. But if we sometimes choose them, they too can choose us...
    Fétiches has five whims for solo violin, magical utensils, each containing their own magic,
    their own meaning.
    Fétiches can then be read on several levels: Noëmi Schindler, the violinist who inspired these
    pieces, is for me a fetish musician. It embodies a violin sound with which I grew up as a
    composer. The violin is, of course, also a fetish instrument. His matter, his arabesques, his
    ankles, his balance: everything about him carries a force and a certain mysticism. A wooden
    assembly, almost magical.
    Finally, each of the five movements that make up the piece are themselves sound objects, five
    specific, characteristic whims that must be tamed and trained, while yielding to them:
    I- The energetic first, first whim, concentrated in dynamism, joy, excitement. A formidable
    game mode to balance;
    II- Thickness, a work of plastic exploitation of sound material. Austerity of expression, arid
    landscape, almost nothing;
    III- The scherzando, light, airy but precise;
    IV- The lyric then, as a song in homage to Debussy and his Nuages, also a fetish in my career
    as a composer. The richness of a full material.
    V- The sparkling one, at last: An intense dialogue between virtuosity, rich sound, challenge
