Parlez-moi d’amour !
Works by Haendel, Bach, Mozart, Offenbach, Bartok and Chostakovitch.
How did Mozart speak about love?
His correspondence is filled with love letters to Constance, his wife, sprinkled with a sometimes rugged humor but also with tenderness. And so is his music.
Whether furious, tender, impatient, shy or passionate, love reigns on all opera scenes but also on more intimate concerts of songs and lieds. Each composer gives it its own colour and harmony.
No sky is too big for it. From Cupid’s feathers to his most sharp-pointed arrows, it knows no limits or taboos. From time immemorial, music has been its faithful ally. Traveling through centuries all along this concert, it appears in turn dreamy, classical, cheerful, romantic and pathetic or modern and mocking!
