Garden of the Jean Lurçat Museum, Angers | 18h30
BOIS SONNANTS ET MOUVANTS

The proposal from the city of Angers to bring together the musician Héloïse Gaillard and the dancer Amala Dianor, echoes an unprecedented and hailed meeting at the Grand Théâtre d´Angers during an honorary distinction received by the artists in November 2019. A new meeting scheduled in the Collegiate Church of Saint Martin took place in Spring 2021. It was the perfect opportunity to invent a journey into the heart of the emotions inspired by baroque music.

Indeed, this aesthetic that favors the unusual, the fantastic, the tormented, thus generates a dramatic tension amplified by various contrasts linked to movements and instrumental colors.

In the courtyard of the Jean Lurçat Museum, go on a journey of the senses ! A moving and virtuoso music, performed on woodwind instruments from the Woods family, baroque flutes, played by soloist Héloïse Gaillard, will resonate with the body and movements of dancer and choreographer Amala Dianor.

This inspiring place, which houses the tapestries of the painter Jean Lurçat and the courtyard of the magnolias, populated by dreams and imagination, with its mystery, his grace will inspire this unusual and daring duo.

Amarillis (17 musicians) and soprano Patricia Petibon

=> See the organizer's website

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.

MELODIES IN MIND

Amarillis (4 musicians)

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.
This program, object of the last Amarillis record, that we have chosen to design around the genre of the trio sonata, was born out of a commission from the Philharmonie de Paris. Sonatas in trio, will be compared with two imaginary Suites in the spirit of the dance suite.
