Georges Feydeau – Un fil à la patte

In production, available for pre-buy.

On the eve of his wedding with the pretty Viviane, Fernand de Bois d’Enghien tries unsuccessfully to break up with his mistress, the music hall singer Lucette Gautier.

But Bois d’Enghien’s future mother-in-law, Baroness Duverger, invites the young woman to sing at the ceremony. Lucette accepts without knowing that the future groom is none other than her lover… To complicate matters, a notary’s clerk “by profession, literary by vocation”, a South American general determined to “kill” his rivals, a man of the world with questionable breath, a former lover and a few freeloaders arrive unexpectedly.

All of them then meet at the Baroness’s who has a hard time keeping her daughter, a young premiere, particularly awake, finding her fiancé much too wise… The misunderstandings follow one another so well that love is hanging by a thread!

Alexandre Kantorow plays Tchaikovsky

In production, available for pre-buy.

First Prize at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition, Alexandre Kantorow has included a concerto by this composer in his symphonic concert. But beware, this is the Second, an unknown gem whose slow movement has something of a page of chamber music. The concert starts with the First Suite of Carmen, where we find with pleasure the very beautiful intermissions of the opera, and end with Pictures at an Exhibition in the orchestration of Ravel, a score that makes the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra shine with all its fire.

OSR Blue Nott – Marc Perrenoud Plays Debussy, Ellington, Strauss

In production, available for pre-buy.

Composed for a competition at the Paris Conservatoire, Debussy’s Rhapsodie for Clarinet appears to pursue a longing for distant horizons.

Inspired by afro-american author Roi Ottley’s bestseller New World A-Comin’, the work uses music to express the difficulties of afro-americans during wartime, and the various political utopias of the era. In this virtuoso work, Duke Ellington imagines idealistically a far-away world, free from war and greed, dominated by love. Our artiste in residence, Marc Perrenoud – pianist, composer and internationally-renowned jazzman – is the ideal person to perform this work.

Don Quichotte joins the programme in rebellion against the absurdities of the world, fighting evil and protecting the oppressed. As we often see in Strauss’s works, he portrays himself in his desperate crusade against the ignorant.

Kittin and The Hacker

Available.

The most exciting electroclash duo of France is back! Kittin and The Hacker set Nuits Sonores on fire with a hybrid show mixing live and DJ set. Kittin and The Hacker like their techno like others like their chocolate: very dark. Chilling beats, sulphurous atmosphere, new wave influences… in addition to their city of birth (Grenoble) the two artists share a deliciously dark and suffocating universe. It is the hits ” 1982 ” and ” Frank Sinatra ” which seal at the end of the 90s the first collaboration between Kittin and The Hacker, propelling both artists to the pantheon of the clubs. These two hits were combined in 2001 in the aptly named First Album. Eight years later, the Grenoble-based duo got back together to forge the opus Two. The success of this second partnership leaves the night owls in expectation: they want more! They will have to wait thirteen years before enjoying Third Album, a new sonic nugget. We find our two techno producers with a background of new wave singers at Nuits Sonores. There, they transform the old Fagor-Brandt factories into a cathedral of fire and ice. Notice to aficionados of thermal shock.

Floorplan aka Lyrics & Robert

Available.

Behind Floorplan hides an atypical duo : the one formed by the DJ Robert Hood and his daughter, Lyric Hood. A “family” night at Nuits Sonores! Robert Hood is a techno legend. Alongside Jeff Mills and “Mad” Mike Banks, our man is indeed the father of the Underground Resistance collective, which combines since 1989 grunge aesthetics and political activism. Seven years after the birth of Underground Resistance and two years after the launch of the M-Plant label, Robert Hood created Floorplan, an originally solo project. It is indeed under this pseudonym that the artist releases from 1996 a handful of EPs, including the acclaimed Funky Souls. Floorplan then went into stasis for almost a decade before rising from its ashes at the turn of the 2010s. In the wake of this, the project became a duo: Lyric Hood decided to officially participate in the adventure after having made a few appearances during his father’s sets. With four hands, Lyric and Robert Hood build explosive tracks where house, disco, funk, soul and gospel are mixed in the most total joy. A euphoric call to dance that gave birth to the albums Paradise and Victorius. We discover the effects of the Hood touch on the audience of Nuits Sonores.
