More than two centuries after his death, Jean-Philippe Rameau serenely continues his work in the afterlife. However, the visit of a young woman disturbs his peace. Curious, she questions him about the singular titles of some of his pieces and what might have inspired them. Rameau gradually discovers the true intentions of the visitor, who now demands justice from him. Throughout this tragicomic conversation, Rameau interprets about ten of his harpsichord works to illustrate his point, against the backdrop of a strange diplomatic mission in Paris in 1725.

Mathieu Boutin
As a youth and adult author, as well as a non-practicing lawyer and violinist, Mathieu Boutin grew up listening to his mother playing the harpsichord, including Rameau's pieces with unusual titles. He enjoys inventing stories inspired by the musical works of great composers.
