Nuit Américaine – City Sky
Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne (FR) - dir. Laura Jackson (US), Elissa Cassini (FR-US), Chloé (FR) & Vassilena Serafimova (BG)
In line with the previous Nuits Américaines, Maintenant festival and Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne join forces again to present a program on the edge of contemporary music and electronic music, around pieces of the greatest american minimalist composers. Chloé, DJ and producer, and Vassilena Serafimova, percussionist, present A tribute to Steve Reich, an homage that mixes tinkling percussions together with loud noises from synthesizers, giving a meditative and poetic result. As an echo, the OSB, conducted by Laura Jackson, proposes a contemporary program around a violin concerto from Philip Glass, who turns eighty in 2017, performed with passion by the violinist Elissa Cassini as well as pieces by composers Missy Mazzoli and Kaija Saariaho.
A tribute to Steve Reich from the collection Variations, is presented after an original idea from Sourdoreille Production, la Compagnie des Indes and Culturebox.
