August 27, 2019 Une nuit américaineLes Musicales de Normandie

A program that honours American vocal music from the 20th and 21st centuries with emblematic composers from that country’s great choral tradition. Whether it’s Barber – and his famous Agnus Dei, but also his The Reincarnations, a cycle of songs based on Irish poems – Copland – a major figure of his generation, and author of an important body of choral works – or more recently Eric Whitacre, a young composer whose reputation has long spread beyond the borders of the United States.

To accompany this musical program, Quentin Bisch has imagined a cycle of four fragrances that lead the audience from dusk to dawn.

Tim Burton : movie and Danny Elfman : music

Orchestre national d'Ile-de-France
Vocal ensemble Metaboles
John Mauceri, musical direction

More than thirty years ago, Tim Burton offered composer Danny Elfman the first opportunity to write a score: it was the time of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Both lovers of independent rock and horror films, the two creators have forged a common aesthetic. Since then, Elfman and Burton have worked together on more than a dozen feature films. Alice in Wonderland is without a doubt one of their most successful projects: the orchestration, at once luminous, strange and frightening, serves the characters imagined by Tim Burton.
