Shows

Concert-spectacles
La Biennale se déroulera cette année encore dans de multiples lieux culturels de Lyon et sa région :

Salles de concerts, théâtres, musées, écoles, lieux publics, jardins, appartements, places et rues… qui deviendront les lieux de découverte et d’échanges entre les artistes et le public, tous les publics. Musiques en Scène, c’est aussi la conviction que le mélange des genres musicaux et des esthétiques se trouve étroitement imbriqué à l’élargissement et au mélange des publics : l’écoute de l’autre. Musiques en Scène c’est aussi le désir de provoquer le choc des musiques en cultivant un goût immodéré pour la variété des formes, le plaisir de l’écoute et de la scène.

Symphonic Concert
When thinking about “entertainment” one does not necessarily refer to “bread and games” or “opium for the people”… In its essence, entertainment is a “distraction” from reality – and sometimes a diversion that may shed a new light on the real. These are the stakes of this concert – or rather this cine-concert.

CONCERT
Concert
If there is something the Quatuor Diotima enjoys, it is putting things into perspective: from a point of view of creation and repertoire, but also musical eras and composers. There is something like a heady Proustian scent in the air when it comes to this concert.

Tombeau and Double are two pieces by Alberto Posadas for prepared viola, written in the memory of Gérard Mortier.
