Composer's Notes      Deutsch    Français
As the title suggests, this piece is a comeback to a certain spot in my life,
certain melodies
Melodies that are somehow part of my past
Melancholia derives from my tastes for past stories, my own stories,
Few melodies embedded into silence, into the time continuum
This piece as an act of despair in so far as creation was always trying to
link past and future. “Melancholia and Hope,” to recreate the time
continuum that human life has disrupted.

— Claude Vivier
