Description

Step through the gates of this 19th-century chateau, hidden away on the edge of a forest, just a few miles from Paris.

From Romantism to Impressionism

An overview of a century of music for flute, violin and harp. Rossini’s instrumental Bel Canto encounters the intimacy of Massenet, the popular roots of Doppler and Suk, the flamboyant lyricism of Saint-Saëns and the anti-conformist modernism of Debussy, who died 100 years ago this year and who described himself as a ‘crazy Wagnerian’ before composing his Petite Suite.

With violonist Patrick Chemla, flautist Thierry Neuranter and harpist Julien Marcou.

The Architecture et Musique orchestra

Architecture et Musique is a small chamber ensemble whose members are drawn from a number of prestigious symphony orchestras. They have performed in historical venues and venues of architectural interest all over France. They have been an ‘ensemble in residence’ at Château de Santeny since 2017.

Un peu court

Un peu déçue car je pensais concert de 1 h 30 et il a duré 1 heure.
Après, le violoncelliste a bien présenté les œuvres qu il allait interpréter et c’était intéressant de ce point de vue. Il y avait un cocktail à l issue mais je n y suis pas restée : il y a en fait une « clientèle » d abonnés qui se connaissent tous.
En tt cas si vs aimez le violoncelle n hésitez pas.

Bach et Vivaldi

Abonnée depuis peu je suis bien entendu très attirée par l'actualité musicale classique et suis ravie de voir que des concerts sont organisés à proximité, dans des lieux tous chargés d'histoire.
