After more than ten years' absence, the Collegium Novum Zürich returns to Archipel with a programme spanning more than fifty years in the history of music, following the theme of the same sensibility. In 1962, Ohana celebrated the centenary of Debussy's birth and makes resonances vibrate in third tones that he claimed to perceive in the French master's harmony. Dufourt takes the allegory of Asia, a fresco by Tiepolo, as the anticipated manifesto of a chaotic, faded, spectral world, prefiguring our art and its music. Bianchi, finally, heir to this auditory and visual sensibility, perpetuates its historical tradition.
