"moderato à cent d'huîtres", the title of the piece, is a word play in French on huit (eight) and huître (oyster), so it's the tempo of the piece ( = 108) as well as being a hundred oysters.

Commissioned note

Moderato à cent d'huîtres was commissioned by Sylvain Durantel for concert performances and a CD titled "La Cuisine à l'alto", the gastronomical-musical theme being an original idea by Sylvain Durantel.
