Concert for Gérard Poulet

Bach, Vivaldi, Brahms...

Tuesday 27 march - 18h00

Conservatoire Darius Milhaud

For his eightieth birthday, the violinist Gérard Poulet, once a teacher at the Conservatoire de Paris, is bringing together some of his past pupils: Renaud Capuçon, Amanda Favier, Liza Kerob, Anne Gravoin, Deborah Nemtanu, etc.

On the menu for this exceptional concert is a programme composed of baroque pieces, typical of the early 18th century. Brahm's Violin sonata n° 3, one of the composer's most important pieces for violin, will reveal it generous melodies. The concert will close with two little-known pages of Russian music that hops from raw sounds to smooth sonorities, written by Prokofiev and  Shostakovich.  A  birthday  that  is  sure  to  be  unforgettable !
