For weeks our musicians have had to practice from the safety of their own home, but now they are finally able to return to La Monnaie. For the first Concert-E-no, Saténik Khourdoïan (violin), Noémi Tiercet (violin), Yves Cortvrint (viola), Dominique Lardin (viola), Sébastien Walnier (cello) and Corinna Lardin (cello) perform Tchaikovsky’s string sextet Souvenir de Florence. In this video you can get a sneak preview into how they rehearsed the piece remotely. The result can be heard this friday at 12:30.
In this recording, the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra and its Music Director Alain Altinoglu take you on an astonishing musical adventure through the Nordic lands, with Edvard Grieg's suite for strings From Holberg’s Time, and the Fifth Symphony of Jean Sibelius.
Director Andrea Breth, an icon of the European theatre scene, gives her vision on Britten's chamber opera and clarifies from what angle she approached the piece in her staging.
New creations, reinvented classics and the return of iconic productions, all together no less than 12 operas; but also the 250th anniversary of our Symphony Orchestra, the full expressive spectrum of the voice in our recitals and the best of dance: this is the La Monnaie season 2021-22, as presented by General Director Peter de Caluwe.
The story of this opera, summarised scene by scene by dramaturge Klaus Bertisch.
