Le mois de novembre à Linea

jeudi, 29 octobre 2015























Ce mois-ci, Ensemble Linea part à la rencontre du public breton. Le 17 novembre à Quimper nous jouerons un concert-portrait d'Aurélien Dumont, compositeur en résidence au Théâtre de Cornouaille. Le programme, en forme de portrait croisé entre l'univers du compositeur et celui de quelques de ses aînés, dont son maître Gérard Pesson, contient aussi une cerise pour les aficionados de la découverte musicale - la nouvelle œuvre d'Aurélien Dumont, que nous aurons le plaisir de créer.


Mais avant notre voyage musical au Finistère, nous retrouverons notre fidèle public alsacien le 8 novembre à la Villa Fleck à Ingersheim, près de Colmar, pour un programme dédié à Karlheinz Stockhausen. Grâce à Keiko Murakami et à Antoine Pecqueur, le temps d'un concert, c'est vous qui partirez en voyage dans le monde ludique, onirique et parfois drôle des oeuvres du célèbre compositeur allemand, dont on sous-estime bien souvent l'incroyable imagination et l'espièglerie. Un dialogue séduisant entre le basson et la flûte dans Zodiaque, un "esprit-flûte" enchanté qui apparaît dans Flautina, et un ours en peluche jouant du basson dans la pièce In Freundschaft... L'univers magique créé par Stockhausen saura émerveiller tant les adultes que les enfants.


Si donc vous avez envie d'une excursion ce deuxième dimanche du novembre, finissez-la en musique avec nous. L'entrée est libre et vous êtes les bienvenus.




Premieres at Musica and concert retransmission

mercredi, 30 septembre 2015




















Still under the magic of our recent concerts at Musica, last thursday, performing Cendo and Lachenmann, we have the pleasure to inform you you can enjoy it next monday, 5th october 2015, at 8 PM CET, on the waves of France Musique (french public radio devoted to classical) if you live in France, and by live-streaming from wherever in the world, on the website of the radio.

Just 2 days before this retransmission, on saturday 3rd october 2015, at 11 AM (In Salle de la Bourse, in Strasbourg), we get back to Musica, alongside with our fellows of Accroche Note Ensemble, to present four new works by composers we have coached in frame of the composition academy, that the Strasbourg based festival has started this year, with the participation of Philippe Manoury and Hanspeter Kyburz. At the very heart of Linea's concern in supporting young composers, an exciting opportunity to discover new works. 







Clash of the radicalities, next Thursday at Musica

In addition to the Manoury Academy we recently talked about, Linea gets back to Musica Festival this year, for a crossover concerts the ensemble is keen to advocate, highlighting the convergences that may exist between composers of different generations, backgrounds and so on. In that frame, Linea meets back Raphaël Cendo, it used to work regularly with. « Enfant terrible » of the contemporary music scene, Raphaël Cendo has stormed it by introducing harsh noises, and pushing the limits to saturation, demanding a complete committment of the performer. Its new work « Corps » will be premiered by Linea at Musica. As a mirror, the ensemble will perform « Mouvement » by Helmut Lachenmann, another apostle of both radicality and freedom in creation. Clash of the titans ? Check it out on Thursday september 24th 2015.


More infos about the concert on Musica's website (in french).







Linea at Musica's Academy

We just left the students of our second summer academy that we are starting a new one in the forthcoming days. As a matter of fact, Musica Festival, starting tomorrow in our hometown Strasbourg, is giving us, alongside with our friends of Ensemble Accroche Note, the opportunity to participate to its first academy of composition . Led by Strasbourg based composer Philippe Manoury, joined by swiss composer Hans-Peter Kyburz, Musica's academy is welcoming ten young composers from all over the world.


Linea and Accroche Note will run composition workshops and masterclasses with the composers, and then premiere their works on 3rd october at the end of Musica.


In addition to this exciting new academy, and before its above mentioned concert, Linea will perform at Musica on 24th september , for a challenging programme, between two « enfants terribles » of sonic radicalism : Raphaël Cendo and Helmut Lachenmann.


We'll talk more about this soon. Booking your tickets for these two concerts seems recommended !

Hot summer in Alsace with the Ensemble Linea

mercredi, 01 juillet 2015










Concert in La Ferme Bleue

in Uttenhoffen (northern Alsace), in 2004.








The Ensemble Linea remains present and active during the summer with some highlights to note in your agenda, if you stay in Alsace or if your route takes you there.

We are happy to join on stage our colleagues from Bordeaux Proxima Centauri on July 11th in Strasbourg at Saxopen , international saxophone festival for two concerts, at 1:30 PM and 4 PM, offering eight world premieres for saxophonist soloist and ensemble. We will premiere works by composers from all over the world (including our New York friend Alex Mincek). Don't miss this high-quality programme, performed by two french ensembles deeply committed in aesthetic dialogue and promoting young composers.

Stepping across the Strasbourg boundaries, we invite on July 16 th to an escape in the beautiful Alsatian countryside, by appointing people to a musical dinner at the “Jardins de la Ferme Bleue ” (“Gardens of the blue farm”), a charming and beautiful renovated old farm in one of those typical villages Alsace can be proud of. Stockhausen and “nouvelle cuisine” are at the menu. It is worth to book your table if you are nearby.

After a break for Linea's office (closing from July 18th to august 10th), we will conclude this summer on august 28th with our academy in Strasbourg. By the way, let's remind that applications are still open, until july 15th. There are still places in all classes. We are starting to conceive the programme of the orchestra workshops. We'll give more news here and there regarding the latters after the application deadline.

We hope to meet the most you during in the forthcoming weeks. Wherever your roads lead you, we wish to all of you, dear Linea's followers, a pleasant summer.
