    How are works born? More often than not, through the collaboration of two people: the composer and the person commissioning the music. When he first arrived in Vienna, Mozart survived due to the popularity of his concerts, but fortunately he could count on the generosity of an emperor who was passionate about music. Today, an enthusiastic crowdfunding campaign has allowed Aurélien Dumont to pen this concerto, created to be played and conducted by François-Frédéric Guy. A former student at the IRCAM, this subtle composer with a taste for the unexpected has chosen to explore the theme of how things bind together and how the piano stretches out like a tentacle to meld with the chamber orchestra. ‘Borrowings’ are also a theme, with the introduction of quotations from Mozart’s Concerto No. 12, which in turn quotes Bach. Enlightened music-lovers and constant renewal are what allow music to develop.
