Deuxième Ballade pour Piano

Deuxième Ballade
Opus : 71
Date of composition : 1984
Instrument(s) : piano
Publisher : Armiane
Duration : 8'
Technical level : medium

One of the last works of the composer. For the Second Ballad, the composer seems, at first sight, to draw his inspiration from a source nearly common with the First Ballad. Yet the strong accents of the disconsolate theme of the second one are expressed by chromatic scales.
