Two pioneering composers, linked by the legendary Phillips pavilion designed by Le Corbusier (well, mainly by Xenakis, his student) as an environment for Varese's concrete masterpiece: The Poeme Electronique. Xenakis also produced a work for this light and sound installation, subsequently moving from architecture to composition. Three pieces of his are represented here: Dammerschein, for large orchestra, the 26 minute percussion classic Persephassa and La Deesse Athena for Baritone, Percussion and Ensemble. Varese is represented by one of his rare full orchestra scores - and one of the great visionary works of the twentieth century, as radical and shocking today as it was almost 100 years ago
