The creation of my symphonic poem took place in Charente-Maritime, France, at the Festival Eurochestries - a gathering of young musicians from Russia, Turkey, France, Spain, Brazil and Quebec. My work, entitled Saint-Exupéry: de coeur, de sable et d'étoiles, was conceived in three movements linked without pauses. Experiencing the directing of a composition provides me with the opportunity to share some insight into some key elements in the foundations of the work.
