Didascalies 2 is not to be confused with Didascalies, published 3 years ago - it is another composition, unpublished and a premiere.

The other day I found a file from 1993, a score for 2 pianos entitled "revenir à la note de départ" ["getting back to the initial note"]. So I decided to turn it into a new composition without changing a single note in it - it contained very little notes actually, which suited me just fine. So I called it Didascalies 2, in memory of what I had done the previous year: a piece for piano and viola entitled Didascalies tout court. That piece was played on two notes, one for the piano and the same one for the viola. It had an obsessive feel. Very, very obsessiiiiiiive !!! (Luc Ferrari)

An anti-tribute to Luc Ferrari

When Luc Ferrari made his last visit to La Chaux-de-Fonds, he handed us the score for "Didascalies 2," and he specifically asked for it to be performed by La Chaux-de-Fonds pianist Claude Berset and Brussels pianist Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven. For us, it became a necessity: we just had to develop an event around Luc Ferrari and present - and it moved us - the world premiere of this, the last work by Luc Ferrari not to have been performed yet in front of an audience.

Didascalies 2 was premiered as part of an anti-tribute to Luc Ferrari in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, in a version for two pianos and viola. Luc stipulated that toward the end of the piece - Formule 6 - "an instrument comes in (I don't know which one yet). This instrument should be very powerful and be able to sustain a very loud note (I don't know which one yet)." We opted for the viola...
