Founded by Pierre Boulez, the revered Ensemble intercontemporain has been the benchmark for excellence in contemporary music for 40 years. In its first trip to Hong Kong, Matthias Pintscher, Music Director and a composer himself, will visit HKU with four of his musicians (flute, violin, cello, and clarinet). Moderated by Prof. Chan Hing-yan (HKU Music), the artists will discuss and showcase excerpts from chamber and solo works by Pierre Boulez and Elliott Carter, taking us into the visionary worlds of the two signature composers of the Ensemble.
