Description:
This short composition was the first I composed after months of severe illness, and written for solo violoncello as a surprise for the 80th Birthday of my former teacher and friend André Laporte.

The first performance has been given by cellist Seraphine Stragier on July 24, 2011 during a dinner party on that occasion.

The piece is based on harmonics (flageolet tones) and multiphonics, with extremely subtle sounds, delicate and (sometimes) pretty hard to produce correctly. There are maybe 4 or 5 'normal' notes in the work. As a tribute to André I wrote a slightly arranged quotation -with flageolets, of course- of the main theme of his opera "Das Schloss" ("The Castle", after Kafka), which he composed in the early 80's for the Brussels National Opera La Monnaie/De Munt.
