In this chamber series concert, CØDA will explore contemporary music of France from the turn of the twentieth century to present day. France has long been a hub of contemporary music, and their artists unafraid to explore new territories. From simple dance tunes to strong discordant polyphony, these French composers bring us to new worlds of sound, while retaining some of the classical discipline of the country’s heritage.
