In this programme alluding to the performances of Carmen to come in the month of May, the cellist Astrig Siranossian and the pianist Nathanaël Guoin propose a playful escapade into the repertoire and transcriptions for their two instruments in French music from 1871 to 1948. On a transcription of Jeux d’enfants, in which Bizet explores the world of childhood with all the sensitivity and art of characterisation displayed in his lyric masterpiece, the two musicians gather a delicate bouquet of refined compositions in which we also find Ravel, Faure and Poulenc. Add to this the Three pieces by Nadia Boulanger, a rare and concentrated score by a composer of immense talent who stopped all creation upon the death of her sister Lily in 1914. She would from then on devote herself to teaching and would become a remarkable and highly influential figure in 20th century music.
