Conducted by Matthias Pintscher, the Ensemble Intercontemporain performs Zappa, Varèse, Zorn, and Gander, with the DJ Patrick Pulsinger. "Yellow Shark" concert performed on 29 septembre 2018 at the Salle des Concerts of the Cité de la Musique in Paris.

Make way for the composers with an overflowing creativity! A programme that reunites both the first musical influence of Frank Zappa and those who, in turn, seem to have been influenced by the atypical and indescribable american composer. Throughout his career, Zappa expressed an unbridled fascination for the music of Edgard Varèse, composer at the heart of his passion for music and percussion in particular. The French composer is therefore at the heart of this concert, surrounded by excerpts from The Perfect Stranger and Yellow Shark by Frank Zappa, and For Your Eyes Only by John Zorn, and the French premiere of Take Death by Bernhard Gander. And who better to perform these works than the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the same ensemble that recorded Zappa's The Perfect Stranger in 1984, conducted by the great Pierre Boulez.
