CORI ALLEGRI

projets-artistiques

Concert

Here, it's all about spirituality, a sense of space and affinities. Over the centuries, the ensemble headed by Léo Warynski unearths kinship, emphasizes family tunes, in a long line of composers touched by grace. 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.

Coproduction Les Métaboles - Fondation Royaumont with the support of La Fondation Bettencourt-Schueller
