Programme Note      Deutsch    Français
Richard Toop writes that, “the idea of Désintégration is a basic rhythmic grid, initially populated by fistfuls of notes, gradually ‘eaten away;’ at first the pianists alternate, but as the process of erosion gets under way, they increasingly overlap and interlock.” Vivier himself wrote, “this work was entirely predetermined; not a single note was left to chance.” Clearly, at this early point in Vivier’s development, the influence of the post-war generation of musical structuralists was far from over.
