A key figure in post-1945 music, Webern seems to be a star distant from the concerns of the younger generation of composers. However, the trace of this visionary work can be found in a number of them, devoted to the revolution of timbre and form, to the density of a musical syntax. The two ManiFeste concerts presented with the Ensemble Intercontemporain and the Philharmonie de Paris are a testament to this. Between the String Trio op. 20 and the String Quartet op. 28, the modernity of the Weberian gesture seems astonishing. Emmanuel Nunes, who dedicated time to a PhD on Webern's work, inherited this deductive and polyphonic power. In Einspielung I, Nunes imagined a quasi-chamber-like dialogue between a violinist "warming up" to polyphony and the computer. The attention to the life of the timbre, through the use of transducers, marks the harp of Kevin Juillerat. Clara Iannotta offers the EIC soloists her latest chamber music work, focused on the minute nuance and rarefaction of sound.
