La transition énergétique est le passage du mode de production d’énergie actuel, fondé essentiellement sur des énergies fossiles (comme le pétrole et le charbon), à un mix énergétique intégrant de plus en plus d’énergies renouvelables.
Debussy, “Les soirs illuminés par l'ardeur du charbon”*
Philippe Cassard, piano
*This is Debussy’s last composition. He wrote the manuscript as a gift for his coal merchant, who provided the fuel for his household during the wartime winter of 1917. As such, it was not meant to be published, but one could nonetheless see it as musical epitaph. Debussy returns to the style of the Préludes with several quotations from them, the most obvious being “Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l'air du soir”. And he also chose a line from a poem of Baudelaire’s Flowers of Evil as the title : “Evenings illumined by the glow of coals afire” (in The Balcony). But perhaps another sentence from this poem describes it best : The resurrection of glad moments is an art I know.
