L'orgue à travers les âges. Facture, littérature et grands interprètes. Des origines à 1840

Aix-en-Provence - Historique - Tuesday 19 October 2021 at 6.30 pm. - Free

Beaucoup d’entre vous se sont certainement demandé en entendant un orgue dans une église comment cet instrument pouvait produire un son à peine audible et l’instant d’après faire trembler les piliers de la nef par sa puissance. Je vous propose donc d’aller à la découverte du "roi des instruments", de suivre ses transformations des origines à nos jours, de retrouver ses plus grands interprètes et ses plus belles pages. La conférence du 20 janvier sera consacrée à l’orgue de ses origines à 1840, celle de février à la période allant de 1840 à demain. De nombreuses photos, vidéos et extraits sonores illustreront mon propos
