Alexandre Desplat, winner in 2018 of a second Oscar for his music for the film La Forme de l’eau [The shape of Water], is also the composer of the music behind Valérian, a score he recorded at Radio France with the Orchestre National de France. The composer and orchestra are reunited once again for a entire evening dedicated solely to a composer who also creates music for himself, regardless of the visual influences.
