In the spirit of a grand "family reunion", this is the story of the Ensemble Intercontemporain that this concert/event will tell, by means of four books which the musicians themselves will open: each of which represents a decade of the Ensemble’s existence. There will be films projected, surprise guests as well as an extended interval allowing the public to engage in a relaxed and convivial exchange with composers and  musicians from the Ensemble.
Coproduction Ensemble intercontemporain, Philharmonie de Paris.
