The Orchestre National d'Ile de France and pianist François-Frédéric Guy present works by Colla, Ravel and Berlioz under the baton of Enrique Mazzola, at the Salle Pleyel in Paris.
Fantastic: illusions borne out of the world of possibilities, out of reality. In Antiquity, one who would let himself go and would follow his hallucinations was seen as mad. In the nineteenth century, the notion of fantasy took on new value: the Romantics saw in the unreal a stimulus of imagination. They voluntarily exploited the gap between the depiction of reality and the evocation of another world.
In music, Berlioz laid the first stone with his Fantastic Symphony, composed in 1830 in five movements of completely unusual orchestral colors that had never been heard before.
Alberto Colla, born in 1968, proposes for this concert a Symphony of wonders which forges links with the challenge already made by Berlioz.
Ravel played his part in the illusion, composing his Concerto for the Left Hand in 1932. Written for pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who had lost his right arm during WWI, this is a twenty minutes work without interruption. The virtuoso performs with one hand, one single hand, a monumental partition of unprecedented difficulty.
