A pulse—both musical beat and vital sign of human life—courses through this concert, connecting works that examine the challenges currently facing humanity and the natural environment, with music built upon an exhilarating rhythmic figure.
Pre-concert talk at 18:30 An hour before the concert, you are invited to discover the works with our guest Thierry Pécou (composer, performer and founder of the Ensemble Variances) and Jeffrey Stonehouse (artistic director and flutist of Paramirabo). There will be a conversation on the themes of pulsation and international collaboration between two ensembles.
