A lombre doliviers (In the Shade of Olive Trees). A sleepy Sicilian ambiance for two mandolins and guitar, the work is described in the composer’s own words as reflecing Sicily, a siesta under olive trees on a sweet afternoon with plenty of Mediterranean perfumes sleep, dreams, sun rays on the leaves. A lombre d’oliviers was premiered in 2005 by the Ensemble Gabriele Leone in Paris.
