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.
