Calendar of premieres for June 2022


Philippe Manoury will celebrate his 70th birthday on 19 June - what better occasion for an astounding display of national premieres and repeat performances this month?

The Ircam ManiFeste festival will start the celebrations with Ring, the first part of the Köln Trilogy, performed by the Orchestre de Paris at the Philharmonie de Paris on 8 and 9 June, the Passacaille pour Tokyo, in an already legendary performance by Hideki Nagano and the Ensemble intercontemporain (conducted by Matthias Pintscher), JupiterPluton and Neptune, the first three parts of the Sonus ex Machina cycle on 23 June, still at the Philharmonie de Paris.

Following the remarkable world premiere of Silex in May, Radio France will now present the repeat performances of Last and Neptune, presented at the Auditorium on 19 June... not to mention the international tributes, which will culminate with the Dutch premiere of Kein Licht as part of the prestigious Holland Festival on 24, 25 and 26 June.

Éric Tanguy's emphasis on "imagination, poetry and the inner world" has helped make him one of the most widely performed French composers today. The album In a Dream takes its title from a piece for violin and piano, one of the eight chamber works included in its program(Quintette, In a Dream, Spirales, Nachtmusik, Rhapsodie, Sonata Breve, Lacrymosa, Trio). Composed between 1999 and 2019, they are performed here by violinists Alexandra Conunova and Rosanne Philippens, violist Lise Berthaud, cellist Edgar Moreau, clarinetist Pierre Génisson, pianists Suzana Bartal and David Kadouch, and the string ensemble Quatuor Diotima.
