18th CENTURY FRENCH MUSIC IN THE LATE 21th CENTURY

8.30pm – OCEANOGRAPHIC MUSEUM

In the 18th century, Jean-Féry Rebel invented the first dissonant music, which described the chaos of the elements before the advent of divine order. In the 20th century, composers sometimes played with writing for early instruments, to create a sort of paradox: the invention of new sounds using “old” colors. This is the aim of the works of Toru Takemitsu – and also of an extraordinary new work by Yan Maresz.
