Following the release of his latest album J’ai deux amours, a disc released in October 2022 on the prestigious Erato/Warner Classics label, Félicien will perform throughout 2024 as a soloist with numerous orchestras, including Orchestre National Montpellier Occitanie, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Limoges, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Saint-Etienne and Orchestre de la Garde Républicaine. He will be performing Romain Dumas’ brand-new Concerto for accordion, Fabien Waksman’s Concerto l’Île-du-Temps, Thibaut Perrine’s Caprice d’accordéoniste, Karol Beffa’s Suite Olympia, as well as music by Richard Galliano and Astor Piazzolla.

“Félicien Brut has taken his instrument to the most beautiful stages in the world and has put it in dialogue with the most brilliant musicians of the moment. In a few years, he has become the unavoidable representative of the accordion in the new generation of French classical musicians.”

Beyond his collaborations with orchestras, Félicien will travel the world alongside his unfailing musician friends in duo, trio, quintet or sextet. The many chamber music ensembles he has created will be heard in France, Mexico, Lebanon, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg… Trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin Vary, guitarist Thibaut Garcia, pianist Thomas Enhco, double bassist Édouard Macarez and violinist Jordan Victoria will share some magnificent stages with him, including the Philharmonie of Luxembourg, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Auditorium de la Maison de la Radio, Festival PAAX, Festival Sœurs Jumelles and Festival de l’Epau.

RADIO / FRANCE MUSIQUE: this season’s 3rd series of “Brut d’accordéon” podcasts is now available on all platforms!

“Accordion, four weddings rather than one funeral”: 4 new episodes of BRUT d’ACCORDÉON produced by France Musique are now available!

In a dictionary published at the very beginning of the 20th century, we read “accordion: an instrument unsuitable for making music, incapable of marrying with other instruments”. Some predicted that the accordion would be duly buried… undeniably, history has proven them wrong!

For some years now, the strapless piano has appealed to all repertoires, in all its forms and within a wide range of instrumental formations. Over the years, it has become a popular stage companion for many instrumentalists. This third series of podcasts highlights this phenomenon through four encounters, four duets: four weddings rather than one funeral!
