Les Dissonances - Season 2020-2021

published the

After a 19/20 season shaken by the pandemic, Les Dissonances continue on its way. A transformed and reinvented one in order to keep the spirit still alive, despite circumstances and cancellations.

   

A transformed way because now exists the Dissonances Chamber Music Series. This new project leads once again to wonderful experiences and concerts shared on France Musique and France3 Bourgogne with our public.

The International Music Festival of Port Royal was created this summer around Les Dissonances and allowed musicians to get back on stage in front of their public after six months of cessation. This adventure will continue from the 1st to 11th of July 2021 with a great Schubertiade that will gather international artists and Dissonances's musicians with an integral of Schubert's symphonies for example.

Those new activities have been commented and recognized in the press and allowed Les Dissonances to be distinguishable during this periode so hard for our sector. I didn't want to abandon the ship within the storm and fight to create activity for musicians and public. Each time, those efforts have been rewarded by an indescribable joy.

For this new season, I built exciting programs in the continuity of our history.

A program built around Stravinsky's Petrushka with the first Violin concerto and Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet has been replaced by Beethoven that we will happily celebrate in October by playing his Violin concerto and Symphonies no. 2, 4 and 8. We'll have the chance to meet again Beethoven in May 2021, this time in Turino.

We'll interpret with the talented french cellist Xavier Phillips the great Dvorák's Concerto op. 104 in January in the Mittel Europa program, also dedicated to Lutoslawski and Ligeti.

Finally, we'll end the season with the Mahler's Fourth symphony where you'll discover the wonderful singer Viktoriia Vitrenko (with who I was happy to record recently a disc consecrated to György Kurtág's music with Audite); associated to the 40th Symphony of Mozart.

L'Autre Saison will also continue. Great artists answered to offer their art and time to people living in extremely precariousness by giving concerts at the Saint-Leu-Saint-Gilles church in the heart of Paris.

I have no doubt about the presence of Les Dissonances after this crisis and I am sure that our artistic and human model will find its place. I want to thank all our loyal supports without nothing would be possible. More than ever, our public will be our strenght. I am impatient to meet you again!
