Tokyo no oto

COMBIER I BERIO I GIBBONS

Les Cris de Paris partner with the Ensemble Cairn for a creation by Jérôme Combier inspired by the Tokyo sound environment. Somewhere between the East and the West, where academic and popular, sensorial and attentive listening converge, this new creation is accompanied by those who inspired it: Luciano Berio and his Cries of London, himself inspired by Orlando Gibbons in the 17th century.

5.1 – Polyphonies spatialisées

Concert

Through this spatialized programme, Les Cris de Paris reinterpret a whole segment of the sacred repertoire of the Renaissance where architecture was deemed inherent to musical intent.

French kiss

Concert

In the immense French-language repertoire of polyphonic songs proposed by major 16th-century music publishers, the register of love songs occupies a privileged place and is enriched by a corpus of “leigeres” songs, full of explicitly ribald humour.

Passions

Concert

Influenced by the secular genre, following on from the birth of opera and the emergence of instrumental music, 17th- and 18th century Venetian sacred music unveils a rather paradoxical face: it is the essence for the survival of a rigorous, elaborate language, the ars perfecta of the great Renaissance masters, yet it overflows with theatrical illustration techniques, vocal virtuosity, and strives to portray devout feelings with emotion.

L’Ailleurs de l’autre

Spectacle musical

It’s an extreme and unheard vocal experience, leaded by four sopranos from Les Cris de Paris who took up the challenge to reproduce songs from the oral tradition recorded all over the world, and staged by Aliénor Dauchez.

Heptaméron

Récits de la chambre obscure

Geoffroy Jourdain reunites with his long-standing companion Benjamin Lazar for a creation spanning the realms of theatre and music. In this contemporary adaptation, historic narratives intertwine with current-day tales to the sound of Italian madrigals which unveil their full theatrical power.

5.1 – Polyphonies spatialisées

Concert performance

Les Cris de Paris offer to revisit a whole part of the Renaissance’s sacred repertoire for which architecture was considered as a constitutive setting of the musical composition. One can thus consider the progress of the concert as a completely new and particularly rewarding relationship between the audience and the performers, far away from the traditional layout : here, spectators are totally « immersed » in the sound of voices deployed around them.
