SUNDAY APRIL 4

Concert in 2 parts

2.30pm – Opéra Garnier

1st part – FRENCH MUSIC AT THE END OF THE 19th CENTURY

At the beginning of the 20th century, the great oak that was Debussy concealed a forest of other masters whose music evoked nature with poetry and lyricism. Aline Piboule performs these forgotten pieces with a skill that perfectly captures the landscapes traversed by her recital. The virtuosity of these occasionally ambitious pieces is always used to serve considerations of melody, light and color.

2nd part – LISZT, SECOND VIENNESE SCHOOL AND WORLD PREMIERE

Supported by the Festival Printemps des Arts since the start of her brilliant career, French pianist Marie Vermeulin proposes a demanding recital that highlights works rarely publicly performed (Liszt’s 6 Polish Songs and Schoenberg’s Six Little Piano Pieces op. 19) as well as the first performance of a work by Marco Stroppa (b. 1959) – a cycle of studies distantly linked to Debussy. The concert is an invitation to explore the limits between music and silence, before culminating in the massive monument sculpted by Liszt to the memory of Johann Sebastian Bach.
