Concert 3 - Rêves / 12:00

“ From the absurd to the sublime ! ”

On this Saturday morning a concert full of surprises and discoveries!

Françaix’s octet is light, funny and burlesque in character, reminiscent of the Paris of Jacques Tati or Amélie Poulain. We start the day with a smile!

In a story by the Turkish poet and writer Nazim Hikmet, a certain Doctor Littman sits staring at a heart in a jar. He tries to imagine the amorous life of the owner of the heart, Madame Tchabaï, and starts to hum some love songs. Jean-Luc Fafchamps set this bizarre daydream to music and added his own favourite pop songs to create a cycle for mezzo-soprano, cello and piano. Swinging, sensual and moving!

Ravel’s poetic piano trio, one of the most beautiful masterpieces of chamber music, ends this special concert.
