"And if other people's opinion of you is negative, in a world where everyone else means everything to you - then my friend, welcome to hell."
These nine pianistic monographs were written in different time periods, but they are linked stylistically through a dark, if not claustrophobic atmosphere. The music is like a theatrical landscape where the focus is not necessarily on the plot, but on the psychological state of the protagonists, who, we gradually realize, are ourselves.
In this sense, the choice of the title ‘Huis-Clos’ is not accidental: inspired by Sartre's book, this piano cycle explores the concept of alienation, alienation from ourselves, the labyrinth of dark mirrors and mirages into which we anxiously bend to find our true image.
However, ultimately, the personal path to salvation, in the end, does not pass through the judgment of others, but it is found in the light that we ourselves have to offer; not in a transcendental, but rather a simply human way, free from rules and social conventions. Therefore, it is not moral concepts and thoughts that matter, but our actions in the here and now - what we choose as an absolute necessity during this short life.
