Past Performances


String Quintet 1 Siam
Modern chamber music for strings ATLANTHALYS Quintet Cet ensemble est constitué de jeunes musiciens qui partagent la même passion pour la musique de chambre moderne. Ils se produisent dans plusieurs grands orchestres, l’orchestre de Bretagne, l’orchestre des Pays de Loire, l’orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, de l’opéra de Rouen, l’ensemble orchestral de Paris etc… Défendant une démarche de création, ils interprètent des œuvres originales situées aux frontières de la musique contemporaine et du Jazz. Le Quintette Atlanthalys est une véritable famille de cœur, dont la jeunesse, la fougue et l’amour de la musique donnent à leurs spectacles une chaleur et une lumière inoubliables.
