    • Sextuor Rieu & Belmondo en concert au Festival Orford Musique 2024


      This ensemble offers a journey at the crossroads of romantic, impressionist, jazz, and improvisational music. Music inspired by composers such as Ravel, Brahms, or Boulanger will transport you to a world where music, freed from aesthetic barriers, remains the primary creative path of emotions.

      The repertoire will include the following pieces: “Mademoiselle Lili,” “Pharaon,” “Valse à 4 temps,” “Africa Brahms,” “Danse magyare,” “Contrepoint pour Johannes,” and more!

      A European and Canadian creation signed by Les Productions Yari.

      The artists worked on this production at an Orford Music artist residency.
