Stimmung - StockhausenFestival Musica - Strasbourg

Grand opening concert

The 38th edition of Musica opens with one large concert in the monumental setting of the Rhine Hall of the Palais de la Musique et des Congrès - a 3,000 m2 space to make distancing and reinstate the necessary sharing of listening. Come with friends or family, understand the ritual of the concert in different ways (sitting, standing, lying down) and live a unique experience of musical immersion. For this first big concert of the weekend, Musica takes you to the borders of sound galaxies by Ryoji Ikeda, Ashley Fure, Simon Steen-Andersen and Karlheinz Stockhausen. One watchword: deconstruct the ritual of the concert to nurture new listening experiences.

Liebeslieder WalzerAbbaye de Royaumont - Asnières-sur-Oise

Liebeslieder Walzer - Johannes Brahms

Behind Brahms the Titan, ambitious heir to Beethoven and Schumann, stands the lover of the voice, the complicit observer of Viennese customs. This is the one who composes waltzes for four hands piano and vocal ensemble, intended for amateurs. Love songs to the rhythm of dance, these Liebeslieder Walzer alternately express desire, nostalgia, sorrow, and fun in the dialogue of hearts. To this emblematic collection, Léo Warynski joins several gems of Brahmsian vocal art, in which the colors of his Metaboles shine.

Yoan Héreau et Eduardo Tobianelli, piano

Cori Spezzati, d'hier à aujourd'huiAbbaye de Royaumont - Asnières-sur-Oise

 

Cori spezzati

Cori Spezzati Here, it's all about spirituality, a sense of space and affinities. Over the centuries, the ensemble directed by Léo Warynski unearths kinship, emphasizes family tunes, in a long line of composers touched by grace. Rameau, whose religious practice is too often underestimated, offers an address to heaven, a five-part motet rarely given because it is cleverly concealed in his Treaty of Harmony. Marc-Antoine Charpentier - who was able to observe during a trip to Italy what in Venice was called the “cori spezzati”: the dialogue of vocal groups installed on either side of a church - delivers a sumptuous Salve Regina with three choirs. But the centerpiece of this new program is signed Orazio Benevolo, an unknown musician, chapel master at the Vatican from 1646 to 1672. Thanks to the conductor and musicologist Louis Castelain, who patiently copied the score in a Roman library, Les Métaboles chantent for the first time since the 17th century this four-choir Mass by the Italian composer. A novel, in a way, which parallels the one written by the very young Lithuanian composer Juta Pranulyte. Beyond eras, beyond styles, musicians speak to each other.

Wenesday, January 13, 2021 Le Papillon noirThéâtre national de Bretagne

A woman goes home. She gets comfortable, pours herself a drink, prepares to eat. Soon, her speech reveals faults, and from these faults spring images, memories, all those snippets of life which, over the years, have sedimented in her to make her person, her conscience, his "me": happy moments and mourning, dark ideas and moments of enjoyment, eroticism and emotions. From fault to fault, she realizes, and the public with her, that she is in shock : she has just had a car accident ... and we follow her to the brink of death, experiencing of what one could call a "hierophany": that is to say the manifestation of the transcendent in a phenomenon of our cosmos.

CummingsCité de la musique - Paris

A key player in today's repertoire, the Ensemble Intercontemporain shares the poster with the Métaboles on this program. This is not the first time that Léo Warynski has taken the helm of the Ensemble intercontemporain: their collaboration began in 2016. Faithful to the eclecticism which is one of his trademarks, Léo Warynski slips the Stabat Mater of Palestrina in an evening clearly oriented towards contemporary music, which completes Boulez's Cummings ist der Dichter with two creations by François Meïmoun and Francesco Filidei
