Gérard Grisey | Talea
Explore Ensemble make their debut at hcmf// presenting Gérard Grisey’s iconic work Talea, ou la machine et les herbes folles. Grisey composed Talea in 1986 not long after completing his vast cycle, Les espaces acoustiques. In recent years, Talea has become a cornerstone of contemporary chamber repertoire, the music's phenomenal power, vision and drama seems to transcend its intimate instrumentation.
