Program notes

An elusive figure, the inventor of concrete music invites us to his home and describes his art.

An elusive figure, full of ideas that have provoked scandals, Pierre Henry, born in 1927 in Paris, nevertheless followed a conventional career path. He attended the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, studied with Olivier Messiaen and Nadia Boulanger and trained as an orchestral musician (percussionist and pianist). But since his childhood he always felt the need to assemble and create sounds.
