DUET WITH TRUMPETER LUCIENNE RENAUDIN-VARY
Creation of a piece by Thierry Escaich, for trumpet and accordion, in June 2021
« A few valves, a handful of pearly keys, a wind of dancing, a wind of incessant travel, a classic wind but a popular wind… »
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 !
In this year marked by the centenary of the immense Astor Piazzolla, the Nuevo Tango comes, in this programme, to tell the story of the life of the most famous of Argentine composers, but that’s not all, The two friends take us back to the great era of the National Schools with Édouard Grieg or Carl Höhne, to a jazz-tinged New York with Leonard Bernstein or Richard Rodgers, to France, of course, with waltzes from Paris and a few wonders by Richard Galliano.
From June 2021, and for the first time at the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise, this duo, which is decidedly full of surprises, will perform a creation by Thierry Escaich for trumpet and accordion, which will continue to thrill their audience with their touching and mischievous notes!
