creation

SONATA is a creation for two duos: violin, piano and prepared violin, with electronic keyboards playing simultaneously in two distinct spaces. In a concert hall, violinist Constance Ronzatti and pianist Claudine Simon perform Edvard Grieg's Sonata n°3 op 45

Not far away, in another space, violinist Benjamin de la Fuente and pianist Samuel Sighicelli plunge into the sound material of almost the same instruments, augmented, diminished, diverted, in commentary, rereading or counterpoint to this repertory music that reaches them through sound processed in real time, from the concert hall. In this space, the audience is equipped with wireless headphones, allowing them to penetrate the sound itself.

On the one hand, the beauty of a gesture inscribed in aesthetic history, given to be seen and heard in its most direct form; on the other, the present and its versatility, exposing us in depth to the piano/violin sound material, its extension and its contemporary resonance, in a kind of poetic laboratory.
