Made in USA

Creation 2011

« The youth of America is their oldest tradition » (Oscar Wilde)

Listening to the works of John Cage, Morton Feldman, John Adams and Steve Reich, four American composers on the programme of this concert, one immediately notices that in no way do they resemble the creations of European composers. Even though nurtured by the same culture, they have no qualms about turning their back on it, inventing their own languages at the root of which one always finds John Cage, the precursor who opened, or rather smashed down, the doors of musical propriety.
