Les Métaboles (16 to 24 singers)
Léo Warynski, musical direction

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.
