Une nouvelle œuvre instrumentale et vocale de Michel Gonneville à partir de poèmes de Pierre Morency inspirés du thème des saisons et de l’enfance. Textes et musique commentent tour à tour légèreté de jeunesse et tourments d’adulte dans un spectacle marqué par la nature. De courtes et colorées pièces pour piano d’Erik Satie s’entremêlent agréablement aux Chansons du Bonhomme que chantent solistes et orchestre pour faire apparaître contrastes et thèmes étonnamment apparentés. Des projections accompagnent la performance musicale faisant alterner les textes humoristiques et manuscrits de Satie avec des dessins de la main de Pierre Morency.

A new instrumental and vocal work by Michel Gonneville based on poems by Pierre Morency, inspired by childhood and seasons. Words and music comment by turns on the lightness of youth and the torment of the adult in a show marked by nature. Short, lively piano pieces by Erik Satie are gracefully interlaced with the songs of Chansons du Bonhomme, performed by soloists and orchestra, revealing contrasts and unexpectedly related themes. Accompanying the musical performance will be projections of Satie’s humorous, handwritten texts alternating with Morency’s drawings.
