This year, the 47th edition of the Festival d’Automne in Paris will feature a portrait of the Canadian composer Claude Vivier. Vivier (1948–1983), whose work is still-little known in France, had been close to Karlheinz Stockhausen and Gérard Grisey. He had a passion for the music of the East, his travels in Asia leaving a mark on his works composed for various formations (orchestra, choir, ensemble). After his untimely death in Paris in 1983, Vivier left behind a rich and unclassifiable musical oeuvre that the festival invites you to discover through four concerts and an opera, Kopernikus, for which he wrote the libretto and that Peter Sellars will be directing.
