    Subject

    “Les Solitaires” is a chamber piece, not only because the action is set in a few interiors, but also because of its similarity with chamber music. It is staged like a kind of quintet: two violins (Pierre and Baptiste) provide the main lines of the central theme, a cello (Madeleine) comes in, sweet and low-pitched, when the drama reaches a peak, a viola (Eva) describes new themes and amplifies the overarching architecture, and finally, the clarinet (Alice) shines a ray of light into the dark forest of strings, but can never illuminate it entirely.

    Crucially, in spite of everything, this little composition ends with a jubilant gallop.
