Les Dissonances, a shared experience

Inspired by his experience with Les Dissonances, David Grimal develops projects as artistic director with other orchestras and regular ensembles. 

Develop the collective sense

Working without a conductor requires a commitment on the part of each musician. The artistic direction advocated by David Grimal aims to create the right conditions for collective work, to liberate the artistic gesture, and to allow each player to make his/her contribution to the musical project. Each person’s talents are called upon to the utmost. During concerts, energies and sensibilities are transmitted between the musicians and deployed within each section and instrumental group. The work, although it is led by the first violin, is the product of a collaboration between all the players. 

We must be able to play as a single person, but this cohesion, this osmosis, must not reduce the role of any individual.
