Music

    SCHEDULE AND VENUES
    • Cité de la musique – Philharmonie de Paris
      November 20

     

    The compositions of Benedict Mason could be compared to meticulously organized kaleidoscopes with a touch of eccentricity from the world of Pop;  and this recent work shows just how ingenious the music-making machine is, setting warp and weft, sculpting sound and dynamics.
    The poetry of the program includes Edgard Varèse turning his back on musical tradition with Ionisation and a major work, Ecuatorial, plus his later Poème électronique. There may even be an echo of Varèse in the slow movement of Mauro Lanza’s #9. For Enno Poppe it is the première of Speicher  IIII-IV and V
