Introduction and Rondo Burlesque, op. 6
As its title indicates, Introduction and Rondo Burlesque is a very light and humorous piece. It sounds like a violin sonata in one movement, but there's a such level of self-mockery that the "sonata" appellation is meaningless. While the introduction can sounds serious, the rondo is full of amused winks.
By composing this score during his studies at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, Romain Corbisier wanted to make a chamber equivalent of his symphonic poem The Dictator's Apprentice which has the same humorous tone.
