Les Messages Personnels

A D-Day Celebration for Soprano, Double Bass and Piano

Instrumental score
Out of Stock


A musical cabaret piece for soprano, double bass and piano.

Commissioned by a small festival in Orbec (Normandy) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the D-Day, on 6th June 1994, Les Messages Personnels is one of Dubugnon's early works, written while he was still a student at the Paris Conservatoire. He devised the story, wrote the lyrics and composed the music for this piece which became one of his most widely performed compositions in the 1990s.

As a music-theatre work, it involves some acting from the three performers. The title "messages personnels" refers to the coded radio messages the French were sending from London to the Resistance on the continent. There are hints of post-Debussy and Scriabinesque influences as well as jazz and funk, which was the music Dubugnon was listening to for much of his time as a student.

Vocal score. Double Bass part available separately (EP73555a)
