The young Turkish musician Ipek Gorgun – a daring experimenter in a wide field of electronic music ranging from composition to DJ performance – offers her own interpretation of Stravinsky’s Firebird.

Comparing – both for affinity and contrast – music pieces that are chronologically very remote, but sometimes surprisingly close: such is the challenge set up by two singers, Dominique Vellard and Giacomo Schiavo, and two saxophonists, Pierre-Stéphane Meugé and Marcus Weiss. Richard Strauss plays a special role in the course of their musical journey, which carries the listener from the Middle Ages through to present days.
