Under the guidance of the composer Isabel Mundry, student composers were able to try their hand at chamber writing with the soloists from the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Isabel Mundry brings together aesthetic currents that are frequently mutually exclusive, giving free rein to her taste for harmony, counterpoint, and early music, without any sense of nostalgia for "restoration". The former student of Gosta Neuwirth and Hans Zender in Germany, who attended IRCAM's Cursus, takes the utmost care to bring the perception of music and the craft of writing to the forefront. She has often found interlocutors in other disciplines - painting, architecture, poetry - to affirm the full autonomy of music. So many issues that are completely relevant to today's young creation.
