Artemide is a sponsor of the 25th Milano Musica Festival “Gérard Grisey: intonare la luce”
The commitment of Artemide to supporting culture is renewed on this occasion with a special interest in the contents of the festival that offers the masterpieces of this French Master through which the emotion of light results in music.
Milano Musica celebrates a quarter century. The Festival, in collaboration with the Teatro alla Scala, from 25 years investigates the language of contemporary music, he moves this year its 20 concerts / shows to the orbit of Gérard Grisey (1946-1998) and his extraordinary research to the border of universe.
In the title Intonare la luce is the theme of a journey that, through the masterpieces of French composer and up to new songs premiered, celebrates a musical thought original, which subverts garde paradigms and vital contacts found in nature, in sound material. What nature and what sound matter, it suggests the words of the physicist and astronomer Jean-Pierre Luminet: “The music of Grisey is really the image of the stars … Perfect reflection of modern astronomy.”
The thought of Grisey in fact develops within the spettralismo, movement born in France in the seventies, which he himself contributes to found; movement that investigates the ways of the physical manifestation of sound and listening perceptual thresholds, size made accessible by new technologies.
The events are designed to provide the public with a living experience of a musician whose dream was to intercept the deep pulse that unites the forms of nature and art forms. To this end, the 20 concerts / shows, relied on the best international performers and young Italian talented musicians, are set in spaces between the most diverse city, but in keeping with the spirit of the songs. Copies of all, the four concerts in Pirelli HangarBicocca (12 and 13 November), in which scores such as Le Noir de l’Etoile, performed by Les Percussions de Strasbourg, will get in dialogue “cosmic” with the Seven Heavenly Palaces and large paintings by Anselm Kiefer.
