About

Pierre-Laurent Aimard returns to interpreting Elliot Carter for the French premiere of Two Controversies and a Conversation his concerto for piano and percussions: live webcast on medici.tv.

Commissioned by Radio France, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Aldeburgh festival, Two Controversies and a Conversation, for piano, percussions and orchestra was premiered in June 2012 in front of the composer, few months before his death. The first two "Controversies" are an introduction to the "Conversation." The construction of the piece reminds of a dialogue where both soloists and the orchestra discuss, imitate or contradict each other. Colin Currie, the percussionist who created the piece and Pierre-Laurent Aimard, a pianist dedicated to Elliott Carter pay a tribute to this composer to whom they have been very close throughout their lives.
