Melodies in Mind

Amarillis, artistic direction Héloïse Gaillard (4 musicians)

A concert like a journey in the life of Georg Friedrich Handel. Sonatas in trio, are compared with two imaginary suites in the spirit of the dance suite. Give to hear a melody without words in its most intimate expression, this is Handel's challenge to us, this man with a universal mind, passionate about painting and who knew how to translate into music the whole range of human feelings. These melodies, so suggestive, enter into us, enchant us and leave us no respite. He will be associated with composers such as Georg Philipp Telemann or Marin Marais.

The Little Festival of Autheuil
Court Drafts

Amarillis, artistic direction Héloïse Gaillard (2 musicians)

The ladies, at Court and in the City, sometimes maintain a relationship of intimacy and charm with music, of which the gentlemen, so gifted they are, do not always have the secret. And as for the Court, that of the 18th century had a special gift…  It would be nice, in any case, to remember that there were a hundred concerts a year at the Queen's, the Dauphine or Ladies. Much more than literature, music was the true passion of these ladies. They practiced it, they loved him, sometimes she dented it. One would be tempted to say of all, without exception, that they gave the music the best of, oui, let's say the word : from their heart.

FLAMMES DE MAGICIENNES

Amarillis (17 musicians) and soprano Patricia Petibon

Patricia Petibon, the famous French soprano, partner of the Amarillis ensemble for many years, brings back to life the time of a program of heroines who are deeply endearing but also guilty in their actions. Crimes and hexes, in the 17th and 18th centuries, are often associated in the dramaturgy. So, Medea, mythical and complex character, multifaceted, loving and passionate, is also cruel and vengeful when human beings, and first of all her lover Jason, turn away from her and betray her.
We find Circe, another figure of magician and lover rejected in theMetamorphosisby the Latin poet Ovide set to music by Jean-Marie Leclair and his librettist, un certain Albaret, who take hold of the subject by 1746 and compose a masterpiece.
Finally Amarillis honors a composer who is dear to him, Jean-Philippe Rameau, who never ceases to set to music characters in love torn by passion, grappling with the emotions and torments of their hearts.
Without forgetting that some dances, such as chaconne, demons tunes, gavotte and other rigaudons, will stir up the fiery spirits of these magicians with tender and passionate hearts.
