NEW WORKS AT THE FESTIVAL

This year, creation takes pride of place, with four new works! Four composers have the floor, each with his individual voice and unique sound world.
Sebastian Rivas has created a sensualist work (Snow on her lips…) for female performer and three instrumentalists plus electronic music and video projection.
Frédéric Durieux unveils his String Quartet no. 2 (Diario Ellittico).
Inspired by the incredible sounds of the accordion, Gérard Pesson has dedicated a concerto to the instrument (Chante en morse durable).
Marco Stoppa gives us Six études paradoxales, for solo piano. Great discoveries not to be missed!
