Arles - Musique classique - Sunday 13 March 2022 between 11 am and 12.30 pm.
Three pioneers of the past centuries facing three contemporary female composers, in the interpretation of the most committed women's trio of its generation: such is the programme of this 100% female evening conceived by La Belle Saison and the Trio Sora.
The contemporary musical landscape is presented in all its richness and diversity: in Give me Phoenix wings to fly, the Canadian composer Kelly-Marie Murphy deploys an imaginary language around the cycle of the mythical bird, from its fiery dance to the resurrection via the silence of the ashes.
The poetry of Frenchwoman Camille Pépin is more abstract, tracing two musical paths at once in The Road Not Taken: will you follow the rhythm or the song? The question does not arise in Postscriptum by the Russian Lera Auerbach, presented here in its French premiere. This resolutely lyrical interlude seems to reach out to the female composers of yesteryear.
Indeed, Mel Bonis already had this way of making the bows sing without restraint. The other two pioneers of the past show their inventiveness: with her ambitious four-movement Trio Op. 11, Fanny Mendelssohn rises to the level of the greatest, shaking up forms and customs. As for Lili Boulanger, the first composer to win the Prix de Rome in 1913, she left an original diptych: conceived from the same theme presented in two radically opposed characters, her trios are the two sides of a single piece.

Mel Bonis : Soir et matin, for piano trio
Lili Boulanger : D'un soir triste, D'un matin de Printemps
