Make way for the composers with an overflowing creativity! A programme that reunites both the first musical influence of \1 and those who, in turn, seem to have been influenced by the atypical and indescribable american composer. Throughout his career, Zappa expressed an unbridled fascination for the music of \1, composer at the heart of his passion for music and percussion in particular. The French composer is therefore at the heart of this concert, surrounded by excerpts from The Perfect Stranger and Yellow Shark by Frank Zappa, and For Your Eyes Only by \1, and the French premiere of Take Death by Bernhard Gander. And who better to perform these works than the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the same ensemble that recorded Zappa's The Perfect Stranger in 1984, conducted by the great Pierre Boulez.
