Franck Christoph Yeznikian

This playlist is dedicated to the works of the contemporary classical composer Franck Christoph Yeznikian, which are marked by the influence of the Baroque period and by which homage is often paid to other composers, artists, poets, and film-makers, in France and other countries; and as an hors d’œuvre I’ve included (or at least did include) a video in which one of them, Stan Brakhage, has a significant anecdote to tell concerning another artist, Jackson Pollock, one that may dispel forever the notion that his creativity (and creativity in general?) was somehow largely automatic or mechanical.
