Programme Note:
Symphonic Chocolates is a soundtrack for chocolate tasting. It’s an orchestral suite in four short movements in which each movement evokes a different flavour of chocolate. During the concert, the audience is invited to eat four small chocolates while each movement of corresponding flavour is being played.

I – Caramel Chocolate: A long lyrical melody supported by a rich and enveloping sonority.
II – Dark Chocolate: An intense habanera of desire and seduction, spiced up with a dissonant bitterness.
III – Mint Chocolate: A delicate freshness with icy cold sonorities.
IV – Coffee-infused Chocolate: An espresso tempo with a Brazilian flavour.

Commissioned by the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, and their artistic director Boris Brott, as part of a composer residency, for the 25th anniversary of the Brott Music Festival. The piece is dedicated to Ardyth and Boris Brott to thank them for all the artistic support they have given to the composer.

Premiere Information:
30 mars 2017 : Collège Fontenelle, Rouen-67, Normandie, France; Orchestre régional de normandie; Jean-Pierre Haeck, dir.
