Each film of the Juxtapositions series focusing on contemporary music explore the world of a particular composer via one or more works, with the composers and their most famous interpreters playing an active part in the process of elucidation. As we travel from Olivier Messiaen to Arvo Pärt, from Europe to America and Asia, new musical continents emerge and burst into passionate life, radically reshaping the contours of our phonic landscape.
