Buenos Aires II 2 November 2017


At the heart of this second concert in the Argentine capital, a masterpiece of Gérard Grisey’s founding: Vortex Temporum. An attempt to “abolish the material for the benefit of pure duration,” which explores in turn the time of human respiration, the enlarged one of whales, and the extreme one of birds and insects. Ramon Lazkano relies on two antagonistic forces of music, breathing and striking, to build a labyrinth of memory: a moving surface with an unpredictable trajectory. Finally, Madrigal by Philippe Schoeller revisits instrumentally this genre specific to the rebirth, which gave birth to the opera.
