"Visions from Minas Tirith - The White Tree" (2010) is a Suite/Poem inspired from the third book of the "Lord of the Rings" by J. R. R. Tolkien, "The Return of the King".The suite is divided in different sections with different styles: French Modern, Melodic, Celtic, Ostinatos with rhythmic variations and virtuoso passages.
- Appearances of the White Town
- The White Tree
- The Words of Gandalf
- The Steward of Gondor
- Dance of Victory
- Fanfare (to Howard Shore) and Finale.
The section of “Words of Gandalf” is inspired by the Dialogue on death between Gandalf and Pippin:
PIPPIN:I didn't think it would end this way.
GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.
PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?
GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
PIPPIN: Well, that isn't so bad.
GANDALF: No. No, it isn't.”
