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.

Rates and Reservations The12 Fantasies by Georg Philipp Telemann, probably composed between 1727 and 1728, manifest the taste of the Baroque period for works dedicated to monodic instruments. It is certainly no coincidence that Telemann chooses, to designate these parts, this term so evocative of "fantasies" which refers to the idea of ​​a creation without formal constraints. It allows him to experience a playful spirit, exceptional virtuosity and to take advantage of a perfect knowledge of the resources and technical possibilities of the instrument. Héloïse Gaillard performs this program on four different flutes – sopranino, soprano, alto and tenor – a choice that allows him to translate the whole range of emotions suggested by Telemann and to underline the extraordinary diversity that these fantasies conceal.

CANCELED – ROYAL OPERA OF VERSAILLES 02/07/2020

Magician flames
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.



CANCELED – FESTIVAL EARLY MUSIC À MADRID 08/05/2020

In the footsteps of Orpheus
Amarillis (4 musicians) & Maïlys de Villoutreys (soprano)
This program features brilliant, as well as moving and surprising music by three composers, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Jean-Marie Leclair, died the same year in 1764 and Louis-Nicolas Clérambault.Jean-Philippe Rameau, the great harpsichordist, theorist and composer left us a collection of chamber music including five Concerts. You will hear the second Concert, the first two pieces of which are successively dedicated to a young prodigy, the composer Jean-Benjamin Laborde and to a harpsichordist who would become the wife of the composer Mondonville.

Then we will follow in Orpheus' footsteps, the mythical musician, thanks to two French cantatas whose respective librettos stage two different episodes of its history. Published in 1710 in her first book of cantatas, Orphée de Clérambault portrays the magician capable of moving the whole earth thanks to his songs. It's to find his wife Eurydice, death, bitten by a snake, that Orpheus decides to descend into hell. Accompanied by his lyre, he succeeds in bending the will of Pluto, getting permission to bring his beloved back to life.

Clérambault and his librettist, M. de Rochebrune, chose to stop Orpheus' story at that point, while Rameau’s cantata in 1721 opens with a tale in which Orpheus ascends from the empire of shadows accompanied by his Eurydice which he must not watch if he does not want to lose her. Orpheus' fight, his temptation to turn around, and finally the fatal outcome are admirably translated into music by Rameau
