The longest night
Three sets of one hour, each with its own distinctive signature: density and complexity with the Arditti quartet, the classicism and sonorous perfection of the Ensemble intercontemporain, the violence and incongruity of Klangforum Wien.
Symphonie III (Anima Mundi) by Brice Pauset
Brice Pauset conceives his symphony as both a reading and a theatrical performance. The reading is an interpretation of Mallarmé’s Book, this "radical" who had such an influence in provoking modernity. The theatre, without either characters or representations, is a theatre of rhetoric.

Avec un coup d'aile ivre
Homage to Pierre Boulez
What hommage to IRCAM’s founder would be complete without looking to the future? The "musical telegrams" sent to Pierre Boulez this evening are signed by three generations of composers. From the youngest, Bruno Mantovani, to the nearest, Marc André Dalbavie in France, George Benjamin in England. Further away, following his own artistic impulses and labyrinthine thoughts, Brian Ferneyhough completes this closing concert at the Bouffes du Nord theatre
