À propos de l'événement

In his six sonatas for harpsichord and violin, Johann Sebastian Bach explores and delivers a broad vision of the roles and games that these two instruments can play. As in a play, each sonata gives a role to each instrument.

It is this great richness that interests the contemporary composer Thüring Bräm who indulges in a delicate and at the same time very daring musical exercise using these sonatas. His process consists in keeping intact one movement of each Bach sonata and placing an interlude between them serving as a prelude to the following movement. Thüring Bräm thus disrupts the traditional form of the concert since everything is so intertwined and so linked that the audience can have the impression of hearing one and the same piece. Resolutely contemporary, this work of interpretation and reappropriation of Bach's compositions consecrates this program as a bridge between eras.
