Friday, February 16 2024 - 08:00 pmLe Requiem de FauréCité musicale - Metz, l'Arsenal

Is there any prayer sweeter and more sublime than Fauré's Requiem, is there any melody more sweet than Jean Racine's Cantique? In Les Djinns, based on Victor Hugo’s virtuoso poem, the composer on the contrary unleashes the most frightening hordes. But it is indeed the most tender Fauré that we find in the two other pieces: the melancholy Pavane, to which the dandy Robert de Montesquiou, cousin of the dedicatee, offered delicately old-fashioned verses, and the concert suite taken from the incidental music for Pelléas et Mélisande, the play by Maurice Maeterlinck, with the famous “Sicilienne”.

April

Monday, April 1 2024 - 05:00 pmMétamorphose(s)Les Musicales de Colmar - Église Saint Matthieu

 

Les Métaboles and the cellist Marc Coppey, offer a program under the sign of metamorphosis.
Some works are transformed, such as a Chaconne by Bach and Agnus Dei by Barber, transcribed for cello and choir. Others translate the metamorphosis musically, such as the eponymous work by Philippe Hersant inspired by the four seasons or the creation of the Japanese composer Noriko Baba. The ultimate change of state, that of passing from life to death, is explored in John Tavener's Svyati.

Wenesday, April 10 2024 - 08:00 pmCori AllegriCité musicale - Metz, l'Arsenal

Les Métaboles and Léo Warynski shine the spotlight on the repertoire for multiple choirs. The principle of writing separate choirs experienced its Baroque golden age under the vaults of the Sistine Chapel – witness Allegri’s Miserere for two choirs, the sacred works of Marc-Antoine Charpentier, who admired these polyphonies during his trip to Italy, or Orazio Benevolo’s Missa tu es petrus, for four choirs, recently resurrected by Les Métaboles. Composed on the same principle of spatialization, Love by Juta Pranulyte will echo them.

Friday, May 31 2024 - 20hOpening concert of Festival ManiFeste - IRCAMThéâtre du Châtelet - Paris

The opening night of the ManiFeste festival constitutes an immense montage, a whirlwind that spreads from the image to the music. The young Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen has designed an ultra-virtuoso collage where the orchestra, the jazz band and the vocal ensemble Les Métaboles present in the room play with a series of living archives – a deep and hilarious journey into our own musical memory. The Summer Playlist includes and wide-ranging, up to Ravel’s La Valse, danced on the rooftops of Brussels by Thomas Hauert’s company. Aerobatics and whirling, a summer playlist, where the eye listens.
