Program note:

I.- L’art d’induire en erreur [on the art of misleading / die Kunst der Irreführung]

II.- L’enfance de l’art

A piece on creativity, on art and illusion, on divergent thinking, and on the labyrinth of life, dedicated to my students in composition. Texts by Antonin Artaud, Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav, Friedrich Nietzsche & al.

The price of being an artist is that one feels what all non-artists call ‘form’ to be ‘content’, to be ‘the material itself’“, F. Nietzsche (second movement).
