SIWA, un spectacle de Michel Kelemenis

Siwa est la nouvelle création pour quatre danseurs de Michel Kelemenis. La chorégraphie est créée sur le Quatuor à cordes de Claude Debussy et le Quatuor à cordes n°2 d'Yves Chauris. Sur scène, les danseurs et les musiciens du Quatuor Tana se répondent dans une pièce construite en miroir, en référence au phénomène observé par le chorégraphe lors d'un voyage à l'oasis égyptienne de Siwa. Dans de grands lacs salés, par absence de vent, les paysages se reflètent parfaitement. Le soleil lui-même se dédouble.

Les deux quatuors musicaux sont joués en alternance offrant, par leur opposition de style, des univers riches et contrastés à la danse. La petite communauté de la danse évoque tantôt l'entente sociale, tantôt la querelle. En fond de scène, l'horizon de Siwa constitue la scénographie. A la permanence de ce paysage immuable, Michel Kelemenis oppose la variabilité du vivant incarnée par les quatre danseurs.

Variationen & Fantasiestücke
> Read +
This third volume of Andreas Staier's series devoted to the piano music of Robert Schumann begins with his first published composition, the "Abegg" Variations op.1, and ends with his very last work, posthumously published "Geistervariationen". The road he travelled between the two words was a long one, yet this programme also brings out the consistency of the poetic urge that gives Schumann's music its matchless powers of evocation.

Beethoven
Complete Works for violoncello & piano
> Read +
Beethoven's works for cello and piano were written between 1796 and 1815. He effectively created the sonata for cello, with an independent piano part, in his Op.5, intended for Jean-Louis Duport and dedicated to Frederick William II of Prussia. Like the delightful variations on themes by Handel and Mozart, they represent his first-period style, as Op.69 typifies the second. The two sublime Sonatas Op.102, for their part, already herald the unprecedented stylistic freedom of the composer's final decade.

Felix Mendelssohn
Lieder ohne Worte
> Read +
This programme illustrates four essential qualities of the music of Felix Mendelssohn. Music stripped of all superfluity, including the literary aspect (Songs without Words); a gift for creating magical atmospheres (Rondo capriccioso); unconditional admiration for classical order; and, finally, a genuine veneration for Bach (Prelude and Fugue op.35). The whole radiant universe of Mendelssohn is encapsulated here.

Sonatas for...
> Read +
Hindemith composed more than 30 sonatas for the most diverse instruments – all of which he was capable of playing himself! This fascinating selection of works written between 1935 (when he became persona non grata in Nazi Germany) and 1948 (the brilliant Cello Sonata for Piatigorsky) is played by some of today's finest soloists, with the guiding spirit of Alexander Melnikov at the piano. How often does one hear a sonata for Althorn? Especially one published along with a poem by the composer?
