Day by day program


Diotima - Contet

While Tensio is Philippe Manoury's most experimental work to date, a comprehensive survey of technology and poetry (writing of the synthesis, polyphony in heterogeneous times), fruit of many hours spent in the studios and laboratories, Over the sea is Édith de Chizy's first dive into the world of electronics.

The accordion replaces one of the violins, creating a sound atmosphere for a work inspired by the visions of Monet. The dissolution into electronics will be countered by the quartet's exacting figures.
