The Paris Philharmonie has just revealed the program of its season 2019-2020. On the occasion, many events are not to be missed such as weekends devoted to Max Richter, Iceland and even to Rita Mitsouko without forgetting the John Cale concert and the night around a new musical and visual project by Damon Albarn.
Waiting for these future events, the Paris Philharmonie expects you on Wednesday June 5 and Thursday 6, 2019 for the concert “Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen”. On June 5 and 6, the Orchestre de Paris will pay tribute to two major works by African-American composers who enriched music in the 20th century.
Conducted by Thomas Hengelbrock, the Orchestre de Paris will return to “Poem for Orchestra” by William Grant Still and “The Bond of Africa” by William Levi Dawson.
William Grant Still and William Levi Dawson paved the way for a symphonic Black American music. The first shows in Poem a surprising fervor and gives the strings languorous flight of lyricism worthy of a Hollywood movie. As for William Levi Dawson also mixes genres in his joyful Bond of Africa created by legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski.
On the program for these tow nights, also discover “Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin, the very emblem of American music, as well as the “Concerto” by Bernd Alois Zimmermann halfway between serialism and jazz. Then, the Suite Cubaine by Jenny Peña Campo will take us to the shores of Cuba.
Please note that these June 5 and 6, 2019, the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez at the Philharmonie will be transformed to house 800 standing spots for €10.
Come along and meet the musicians of the Orchestre de Paris on Wednesday June 5 at 7 p.m. within the conference room (free admission).
