Ensemble intercontemporain

Creations from the Composition Workshop: Two Voices and Conducted ensemble, George Benjamin

Writing for voice and ensemble, a discipline that is terrible and delicate for a young composer, where all the questions of syntax, of sounds, and of phrases are played.  Julien Leroy and George Benjamin direct this workshop with the Ensemble intercontemporain.
