Philippe Manoury Series

The soloist, the chamber and the concert works of Philippe Manoury meet the music of his predecessors (Berio), of his contemporary friends (Ichiro Nodaïra), and of the upcoming generation (Yann Robin and Francesca Verunelli). A dialogue continually maintained by the composer among artists and friends, a shared technical emulation. A day of study (June 12) will shed light on the composer's position faced with scientific, social, and cultural upheavals.
