Suite Francaise Moderne
This composition uses movements that are typically found in the Baroque French Suite but are cast in a 21st century style. The first movement is in the style of a French Overture with a moderate first section with dotted rhythm figures and a contrapuntal second half in a faster tempo. The second movement is a Rigaudon with its lively 2/2 tempo. It provides a nice contrast to the stately first movement with its lightness and more chromatic melodic material. The third movement is a Loure in 3/4 for the most part. The characteristic dotted quarter, eighth, quarter rhythm is present though it is often disguised. This is a very lyrical movement with lush harmony. The last movement is a Gigue with its 6/8 meter, wide intervals and contrapuntal writing.
