'Rentrer à la Maison' is meant to invoke the emotion one
associates with 'coming home' after a long time away. Despite
the piece unfolding at a slow tempo, the syncopated repetitive
bass line drives the piece forward, adding a gentle sense of urgency
as you journey on home.
The treble line offers a simple yet contrasting theme, designed
to draw the listener away from the monotony of the trundling bass
line, adding a splash of excitement, a sense of hope, and a dash
of anticipation.The entire piece may be performed with a slow
crescendo, building all the way from the first bar, right up to
the final diminuendo and ritenuto.
'Rentrer à la Maison' resolves with a solitary 'B' note
in the bass line.This is when the journey is complete.
