Le Corbusier, based around the work and friends of the great architect, suggests a journey into the different relations between music and architecture or space. Le Corbusier worked closely with composer and architect Iannis Xenakis and composer Edgar Varèse. The first half of the concert is closely linked withLe Corbusier’s character while the second part deals with the uses and characteristics of architecture as life space, artwork, piece of history, and concert hall.
