Misc. Comments

  • Inspired by Euripides' Choral Ode for Orestes. A fresh version is in the works.
    Nécessite quelques retouches au niveau du détail. Basé sur une thématique hellénique ancienne (l'Oreste d'Euripide)
  • Revised and augmented (october 2014) with a 5th piece, the longest of the set, purporting to be the Laments of Ariadne, with an ossia ending due to a quirky absent-mindedness characteristic of this composer, his having worked at it at different moments, neglecting (a polite word for forgetting) at what stage he had left off.
