For George Crumb and his spectacular Makrokosmos (a nod to Bartók's Mikrokosmos), it is India and the Far East that are summoned with their mystics, their rituals, their instruments, their infinite modes of play: repetitions , metric overlays, etc. "Using all the modes of play possible on the piano" (G. Crumb), to the breath and the voice of the pianists are added the unlimited resources of a set of percussions whose magic culminates in the impressive music of La Starry night, to which mingle nostalgically the snatches of the fugue in D sharp minor by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Bowles, Bernstein, Gershwin:
This program evokes all the influences to which the great American composers of the twentieth century were exposed. French music and South American rhythms for Paul Bowles (author of the famous novel Un thé au Sahara and disciple of Aaron Copland); gospel, jazz, country music and musical for Aaron Copland, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein.

In the program :
George Crumb (1929-) - Makrokosmos III: Music for a Summer Evening for two amplified pianos and percussion

Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) - West Side Story for two pianos (excerpt)
George Gershwin (1898-1937) - Porgy and Bess for two pianos (excerpt)
