Nicolas Horvath Piano

During a twelve hour straight through run, the pianist Nicolas Horvath, who adores epic concerts and other types of ‘outsize’ projets, interprets the totality of the works for piano by Philip Glass in the chronological order of composition.This pilgrimage is tantamount to a total immersion into the universe of one of the greatest American minimalist composers.

In this sonorous meditation inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead (Bardo thödol) where voice, instrument, and electronics share a stage, the Lebanese composer Zad Moultaka explores the notion of the sacred in the West. Six singers, surrounded by eleven musicians and loudspeakers—either suspended around the singers or placed on the floor—weave connections between the limits of the sound spectrum, infrabasses and extreme highs. UM is not only a mantra, it is also an acronym for United Motors that can be taken literally. From the sound a car motor, inordinately slowed down, an unforeseen poetic and incantatory path is born.

The oeuvre of Peter Eötvös is marked by the inherent bond he has established between music and language, as Janáček once did. Composer and conductor, Eötvös has asserted himself in the world of contemporary opera since the stunning Trois sśurs. In his new quartet, he takes advantage of the expressive and "linguistic" power of strings to which he adds a voice. The starting point for Sirens is a short text written by Kafka in 1918 in which the sirens’ fatal weapon is silence. "But Odysseus, if one may so express it, did not hear their silence; he thought they were singing and that he alone did not hear them." Other sirens from Joyce and Homer spring out from behind the quartet: three languages, three speeches for this "chamber opera".
