Intercontemporain Ensemble in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China

After a first tour in Shanghai in 2015, the Intercontemporain Ensemble will take off for Asia at the end of October, to Taiwan, followed by Hong Kong, before going to Korea as part of the France in Korea Year.

The concert program will explore the multiple facets of the ensemble’s repertoire, including concert works such as Mémoriale by Pierre Boulez, Chamber concerto by Ligeti or Kammersymphonie No. 1 by Schoenberg.

For these concerts in Korea, in Seoul and Tongyeong, the ensemble will present the Korean creation of Dopplekonzert by composer Unsuk Chin, for piano, percussion and ensemble.
 
Also on the program are actions that serve to pass music down to musicians and the youth, mainly via encounters, workshops and educational concerts.

Proxima Centauri in China and Japan

 
Discovered for the Focus Musique contemporaine (Focus on Contemporary Music) event organized by the Institut français in 2015, Proxima Centauri has been invited to China for the Musicacoustica Festival, to be held on October 27 to November 1, Asia’s largest electroacoustic music event. The ensemble will then tour Japan on November 2-7.
 
The complete ensemble will present ‘‘Du Geste à l’Objet’’ (From Gesture to Object) within the scope of the Musicacoustica Festival, for a program offering a glimpse of today’s musical creation, particularly via the creation of a piece by Benoît Garnier that mixes music, video and dance.
 

Proxima Centauri will then perform as a duet on different dates in Japan. Called on by Company Bene, Proxima Centauri also offers an ambitious program combining European and Japanese creation.
