This past 16 December the Pompidou Centre in Paris hosted the premiere of Chamber Symphony Quasikristall
, a chamber symphony with electronics by the Barcelona composer Hèctor Parra
. Here is a comment from the press:
The Ensemble Intercontemporain and the IRCAM present the result of the commissions for ensemble with or without electronics. [...] Written for sixteen instruments and electronics, Chamber Symphony-Quasikristall
, by the Spaniard Hèctor Parra (born 1976), advances through sequences of impeccably drawn lines and lively content. A stunning achievement.
