Thuesday, June 8 2023 - 8:00 pmMétamorphose(s)Cité musicale - Metz

Les Métaboles and the cellist Marc Coppey, offer a program under the sign of metamorphosis. Some works are transformed, such as a Chaconne by Bach and Agnus Dei by Barber, transcribed for cello and choir. Others translate the metamorphosis musically, such as the eponymous work by Philippe Hersant inspired by the four seasons or the creation of the Japanese composer Noriko Baba. The ultimate change of state, that of passing from life to death, is explored in John Tavener's Svyati.

Wednesday, June 28 2023 - 8:00 pmCori AllegriFestival Les Flâneries musicales de Reims

During a trip to Italy, Marc-Antoine Charpentier observed what in Venice was called the "cori spezzati": the dialogue of vocal groups installed on either side of a church. In this program he works alongside Gregori Allegri and Lithuanian composer Juta Pranulyte. But the centerpiece of this new program is signed Orazio Benevolo, a little-known musician, chapel master at the Vatican from 1646 to 1672. Thanks to the conductor and musicologist Louis Castelain, who patiently copied the score in a Roman library, the Metaboles sing for the first time since the 17th century this four-choir Mass by the Italian composer.

Saturday, July 8 2023 - 08 pmSinging RavelFestival Les Traversées - Abbaye de Noirlac

Everything sings with Ravel: the strings of Daphnis and Chloé, the piano of Jeux d'eau or the whirlwind of fantastic characters from L'Enfant et les Sortilèges. However, his work for a cappella choir is reduced to twirling but very short Trois chansons. Never mind ! Didn't Ravel himself transcribe, here for piano, there for orchestra, a good part of his catalog? Here is Ma Mère l'Oye, Miroirs, Scheherazade offered to the virtuosity and playfulness of the singers of the Métaboles - and in creation, the transcriptions of the Bolero and the Pavane pour une infante defunte by Thibault Perrine.
