Henri Dutilleux et les autres arts, quelles correspondances ?

Abstract : Henri Dutilleux, twentieth-century composer, showed particular interest for other arts, especially painting and literature, where he sometimes found creative inspiration. The word « connections » seems to be the best to define the links between these disciplines and some of his works. Without writing program music, the composer weaves subtle analogies which are more suggestions and personal feeling than descriptive music. All parameters are used to evoke other arts specific elements and to create a same atmosphere : timbres, chords, melody or rythm, nuances. This essay try to study what means are employed to traduct musically Henri Dutilleux impressions for other artistic works. Three works were selected to explain this subject : Timbres, Espace, Mouvement ou « La nuit étoilée » for the link with painting ; Tout un monde lointain... for the analogies to poetry and symbolism ; and Correspondances which synthesizes this double link.
