DUET WITH TRUMPETER LUCIENNE RENAUDIN-VARY

« A few valves, a handful of pearly keys, a wind of dancing, a wind of incessant travel, a classic wind but a popular wind… »


Popul’airs !

This is what these two wonderful musicians come to blast, leading figures of their respective instruments.

Trumpeter Lucienne Renaudin-Vary and accordionist Félicien Brut happily share the stage and it is shown! They tell of the mixed journey of their instruments, the mixed journey of their respective young careers : from musette ball to opera, from jazz to masterpieces of romanticism, sometimes there is only one step… One step of dance of course !


For an evening, Gioachino Rossini waltzes with Richard Galliano, Béla Bartòk swirls alongside Richard Rodgers, Léo Delibes twirls very close to Edouard Grieg, intoxicated by the notes and carried by the wind of these two undeniably popul’airs instruments !
