Festival Brahms - Opéra National de Bordeaux 8 et le 18 octobre

Festival Brahms - Opéra National de Bordeaux 8 et le 18 octobre | France Festivals | Scoop.it

Héritier de Haydn et Schubert, précurseur de Mahler, classique dans son art et romantique en son âme, hostile à la « musique à programme », prodigieux compositeur tant dans le domaine de la musique symphonique que dans celui de la musique de chambre, Brahms demeure l’une des plus grandes figures de la littérature musicale de tous les temps.

Le festival qui lui est consacré explore toutes les facettes de son génie protéiforme.
Chefs-d’œuvre et partitions rares se succèdent entre le 8 et le 18 octobre servies par des artistes familiers de cet exceptionnel répertoire.
Des rendez-vous incontournables !

Concerts symphoniques :

Mercredi 10 oct. 20h00 Sascha Goetzel / David Kadouch

Vendredi 12 oct. 20h00 Sascha Goetzel / Isabelle Faust / Marie-Elisabeth Hecker

Mardi 16 oct. 20h00 Peter Schrottner / Stephen Hough

Aspro Impro | Musiques Libres jazz and more BESANÇON 29/10/2015 -01/11/201 | France Festivals | Scoop.it

Musiques Libres est un festival défricheur qui fait son petit bonhomme de chemin sur les sentiers buissonniers des musiques de traverses, bien à l’écart des autoroutes standardisées de l’industrie musicale.

En attendant, Musiques Libres ne figure toujours pas sur le registre des chers disparus, pas encore (« encore un instant, monsieur le bourreau »), et vous apportera de nou- veau son lot de découvertes (ah ! le plaisir renouvelé des premières fois), de surprises, de dépaysement musical avec humour et humeur.

Un rien libertaire, cette manifestation vous rappelle qu’entre Musiques Libres et Amours Libres, il n’y a qu’un mot de différence... et quelques notes de musique.

Festival de Saint-Céré Opera, Classical, Chamber, Operetta  30 July to 15 Aug 2015 À SAINT-CÉRÉ, (46) | France Festivals | Scoop.it

La Passion selon Saint Jean de Johann Sebastian Bach est un chef-d’œuvre de l’époque baroque relatant l’évangile de Jean. Composée vraisemblablement en 1724, Il existe néanmoins différentes versions de cette œuvre puisque seuls des fragments et quelques manuscrits des partitions individuelles ont été retrouvés. Pour cette composition, il puise largement dans ses écrits antérieurs qu’il adapte et transpose pour prendre les meilleurs éléments dans un parfait équilibre. Cet oratorio est de construction traditionnelle avec les récitatifs portés par l’Évangéliste, l’Aria chantés par les voix solistes et les chœurs

Over the past decade, the Annecy International Animation Film Festival has redrawn itself, transforming from a niche event into the epicenter of the animation world. Founded in 1960, the festival -- which runs June 15-20 -- and its MIFA film market have become a major European launchpad for Hollywood, with the studios frequently on hand to premiere their latest animated releases or offer previews. So how does the event lure such major players? Location, location, location. Perched in the Haute-Savoie region in southeast France, the tiny alpine village is so picturesque that it could have been drawn by Walt Disney himself.

58th Festival of Confolens August 11-16, 2015 Danses et Musiques du monde

58th Festival of Confolens August 11-16, 2015 Danses et Musiques du monde | France Festivals | Scoop.it

This international Festival of music and folk dances brings together around 200 to 300,000 spectators each summer. People come from all over, ready to discover new cultures and customs from the four corners of the world. 

There are between 15 and 20 folklore groups invited to the festival, representing 15 countries over the 5 continents, and 600 musicians.

A golden rule: they perform on stage accompanied by their musicians.

In the evening, the opening ceremony on the square outside the town-hall, inaugurates each new festival.

Based on a different theme each year, the groups appear on stage after the traditional kindling of the flame.

During the morning, there are several events organized:
- "Ville en fête" allows the general public to discover all the groups participating in parades, events, shows, and concerts for a modest price
- For 3 days in the week, the spectator may also just live and breathe the festival, free-of-charge, by enjoying the street events animated by several groups in the city
- In the evening, there are world dance and music shows

The folklore groups perform on the outdoor stage, presenting a different sort of energy each evening.

For the World Music evening, a group embodying tradition and creation, blending acoustic and electric music, will be playing in concert.

Over these past 50 years, the festival can boast some big names among their guests: Touré Kunda, Kassav, Khaled, Manu Dibando, Tri Yann, Johnny Clegg, Faudel, Bernard Lavilliers, I Muvrini, Jimmy Cliff, Enrico Macias, etc...

For the closing evening, the public normally dresses in white, a symbol of peace and union between all people. At this point, the torches are taken away and this is followed by the flame being extinguished and a large party where all the countries are represented.

The Off Festival gives the opportunity to experience world music, a exhibition area of world crafts, a fast-food with a free party every evening.
From Monday to Friday there are dance workshops, to learn about the dances of one’s country, and all this led by the music of a folklore group.
