Composed by Jean Guillou. Published by Wayne Leupold Editions (WY.WL600060).

This four-movement work takes as its point of departure the concept of "Fire": combative fire, the fire of friction among ideas, of struggle, of liberation, the fire of human warmth, fire that brings rebirth, and the fire of enthusiasm, of the creative urge, of poetic furor.

  • II.ÊFires of silence: latent, insinuating fire
  • III.ÊPhlogistic Fire of the soul: The Fire of subtlety, the insightful spirit
  • IV.ÊAGNI-IGNIS, Fire of exaltation
