Under the direction of Andrew McAnerney, the chamber orchestra will revive the music of Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672), Johann Hermann Schein (1586-1630), and Samuel Scheidt (1587-1654). The works of these three German composers will highlight the art of the madrigal and the polychorale veneziano tradition. With choir, violins, cornets and saqueboutes.

Yo soy la desintegración is back after 20 years

Capture d’écran 2017-04-28 à 11.21.50To celebrate 20 years since the great success of the first production of Yo soy la desintegración, with music by Jean Piché and libretto by Yan Muckle, Chants Libres fills the revival of this masterpiece with a unique emotional charge. Inspired by the personal journal of artist Frida Kahlo, this work speaks intimately of the painter, who is faced with a hard destiny. The concert will be performed by soprano Stéphanie Lessard, under the direction of Pauline Vaillancourt. Opera performance for solo voice and electroacoustic. May 5, 8 and May 7, 4, Cinquième salle de la Place des arts. www.chantslibres.org
