"Le Reve de Cassandre" pour quintette a vent fait reference au superbe texte de l'ecrivaine allemande Christa Wolf, "Cassandre". Pour memoire, la princesse troyenne, fille de Priam, recoit d'Apollon le don de predire l'avenir, mais refusant les avances du dieu, celui-ci la condamne a ne jamais etre crue. Elle predit ainsi la chute de Troie et voit en reve la cite en ruines. Le troisieme mouvement, a l'origine du titre, est une evocation de ce spectacle de desolation, dans un tempo d'une implacable lenteur. Sa structure est en deux parties. La premiere, d'une absolue verticalite, voit se succeder une chaine d'accords sur neuf mesures. La seconde superpose chromatisme, tierce mineure lancinante au hautbois et dissonance persistante aux trois voix aigues. Le piccolo termine seul la piece de facon stridente, apres un tres grand crescendo. Le premier mouvement illustre le conflit entre Cassandre et Apollon. D'une grande difficulte rythmique, il juxtapose accords violents avec des bribes de phrases qui passent d'un instrument a l'autre, rythmes saccades et enchevetrement de lignes melodiques.

"Cassandre's dream" for wind quintet is a reference to the sublime text by the deutsch writer Christa Wolf, "Cassandre". For the record, the trojan princess, Priam's daughter, get from Apollon a gift : predict the future, but as she refused him, he doomed her not to be ever believed. Then she predicted Troie's fall, and saw in her dreams the city in ruins. The third movement, which gives the title to the score , is an evocation of a desolation's field, with a tempo of a merciless slowness. It's composed of two parts. The first one, of an absolute verticality, is a succession of a chords chain on nine bars. The second one superimposes chromaticism, a stabbing third minor from the oboe and a persistent dissonance with the three high voices. The piccolo ends up on his own the score in a strident way with a very big crescendo. The first movement pictures the fight between Cassandre and Apollon.
