French composer André Riotte was closely involved with experiments in avant-garde music, following in the paths of Messiaen, Xenakis and Barraqué, as well as in group improvisation. He wrote widely for orchestral and chamber forces, but the piano was his central focus and his compositions for it chart his development from early neo-modal works through studies in pure sound, to the monumental inspiration of his large-scale works.
Météorite et ses métamorphoses, one of the composer’s last works, is a milestone in contemporary repertoire. Thoroughly organic, it develops as metamorphoses – a term Riotte preferred to ‘variations’ – and acknowledges the influence of Debussy and Bach, and Beethoven in his Diabelli Variations.
Born into an artistic family, the Belgian pianist Thérèse Malengreau was awarded her first prizes and Advanced Diplomas at the Royal Conservatory of music in Brussels and holds a degree in romance philology from the Université libre de Bruxelles. Her teachers include Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer, Bernard Lemmens, Yevgeni Malinin and Léon Fleisher. She has discovered and given first performances of a number of scores, including Andre Riotte’s Météorite et ses metamorphoses, featured on this recording.
