Gilbert Amy, A multilateral look at his work today

Coordination Pierre Michel
When, in a letter addressed in 1972 to Francesco Siciliani, Bruno Maderna mentioned “some interesting foreign composers” for programming in Milan, he named Gilbert Amy, Jean-Claude Éloy and Earle Brown…
Gilbert Amy has played an active role in French musical life, though this prominent position has without doubt thrown his own musical production into the shade, even if it is very varied and forceful.
A new and unique occasion, therefore, presents itself for becoming better acquainted with the music and ideas of Gilbert Amy through a day session that, thanks to the contributors, is highly diversified.
Performers, fellow travellers, musicologists, historians and composers from the composing class at the Lyons Conservatory, all these guests will in their different ways examine the work and the diverse facets and activities of this great creative artiste.
