He would not have been the first well-known composer for musical theatre who neglected the less “spectacular” varieties of music. But unlike the “symphonic form”, which Georges Aperghis has been rarely considered ever since his initial attempt in 1972, chamber music recurs throughout his œuvre. As though staging a theatrical work, Aperghis plays his game in a chamber-music hall with ever-new instrumental combinations, at the same time creating a connection between them and European musical tradition. He is always seeking voices. “It is similar to seeing the image of someone in a photo and wondering how their voice sounds. Is it nasal, or is it high, or is it low? Were they breathing heavily or easily? An instrument always remains the same. But the real question is: how does the voice of this instruments sound in this piece?”
