European Contemporary Orchestra (ECO)
To this day, ECO is the only European orchestra that is entirely dedicated to contemporary creation.
Since 2011, its thirty-three musicians, spurred on by conductors Raoul Lay (Télémaque/Marseille) and Jean-Paul Dessy (Musiques Nouvelles/Mons), add their dynamism to the composers’ imagination and welcome the young Romanian (Icon Arts Academy) and Italian (AFAM) instrumentalists.
Programme: creations by Jean-Luc Fafchamps, Bernard Cavanna and Ivan Fedele, amongst the pieces created in 2012 by Benoît Chantry, Karl Fiorini and François Narboni.
A joint production of manège.mons / Musiques Nouvelles - Télémaque - Icon Arts - AFAM - Bozar - Flagey - Mons 2015 Foundation.
