Cancelled event

Due to the current transportation situation in Ile de France, the ULYSSES Ensemble concert on July 1st is cancelled.

Academy workshop final performance


Under the leadership of Taiwanese conductor Lin Liao, the ULYSSES ensemble brings together young European musicians to perform some of IRCAM's recent works with the soloists of the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Assemblage by Roque Rivas is a piano concerto by a composer who is adept at montage and speed, generativity and musical proliferation based on copying, replication and micro-variation. Enno Poppe's Speicher (attic, storage place) is one of the most striking cycles of today in its formal and instrumental virtuosity. Finally, Sofia Avramidou's Géranomachie relies on the dramatization of poetic contrasts (sky-earth, animality-humanity) that become oppositions and confrontations of masses and intensities.
