Where and when
Saturday 25 July 2015 at 7p.m: Sound Types. Concretism, matter, mineral sound, the nature of vibration
Forget the conventions, the predictability and probability of a musical experience, the concert invites you to enter into the language of timbres, physical sensations, in an abstract emotional world made of imperceptible and transfigured semantic relationships, in colors and tones linked only to the concrete reality of the vibration of the musical instrument.
Alban Berg 4 pieces op. 5 for clarinet and piano
Iannis Xenakis Charisma per clarinetto e violoncello
