Ensemble Musique Vivante, Conductor – Diego Masson

«The intentions of the unsaid comment of this score are the sensuality in its broadest significance: the sound, the body, movement, rhythm, surprise. In addition, the musicians seek a melodic theme, i.e. the ancestral thing of melody, the ancestral thing on which the erudite music of the last decades made the dead end.»
