IRCAM/Centre Pompidou-Grande salle-Paris


In 1944, a year before his death, Bartók composed an immense sonata for violin has no equal since the sonatas by Bach. Song, polyphonic density, large forms. The final Liszt is the opposite of a miniature, of harmonic ambiguity, and of the premonition in 1883 of a tonal world in decomposition.
Three exceptional musicians brought together by the composer Marc Monnet summon these pivotal works around the creation of an unfaithful disciple of Kagel. In his critical passion of electronics, Monnet prefers the rapidity of instrumental gesture to a display of a pirouetting fiction of technology.
