Michel Tabachnik, "Sumer"

On 20 and 21 December, the Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra will perform the world premiere of Michel Tabachnik's cello concerto, conducted by the composer himself. The cello of Gautier Capuçon will have the honour, in this work with the evocative name of Sumer, of "evoking the litanies, accompanied by an orchestra which echoes them" with a "strange and throbbing music that announced, in the ancient Sumer, the epics of the first gods, the stories of an original Genesis, the profane dances of joys and sorrows," in the words of the legendary conductor, composer of symphonic frescoes that are always striking.

The Elbphilharmonie spotlights Iannis Xenakis

It is hard to imagine a better setting for the music of Iannis Xenakis, the architect of sounds, than the Elbphilharmonie by Herzog and de Meuron in the port of Hamburg, this profession of faith through the power of stone, glass, and gravity, at the service of music.

For three days, from 29 November to 1 December, the great orchestral frescoes will echo within the emblematic concert hall of Hamburg (including the canonical Jonchaies and Metastasis) and the most emblematic works of the unforgettable creator's catalogue for ensemble or soloist, and in particular for percussion (Rebonds, Psappha, Persephassa ...) performed by the best ensembles in the country, from the Elbphilharmonie Orchestra to the Berlin Radio, the Resonanz Ensemble and the Percussions de Strasbourg ensemble.

Three days of emotions and (re)discoveries not to be missed by the (broad and growing) community of followers of Xenakis.
