It's official, next summer, the Ensemble Linea will organize its first Academy of contemporary music in Strasbourg, from 25th to 31st August 2014. Owing to the fact that academies are rare, and even more regarding contemporary music, this is an exceptional opportunity for young musicians (still students or at the start of their career), wishing to learn or improve their skills in the field of contemporary repertoire.


Masterclasses will be led by the musicians of the Ensemble Linea and the academy will conclude with a concert by the ensemble and a concert by the trainees. The academy will be held in the Strasbourg based Cité de la Musique et de la Danse (Music conservatory).


We are currently finishing the website which will give you all the details on the content and how to participate to the academy. All details within the next week, after the traditional Easter break, as we will launch the website.

Book the dates right now, and stay close !

Flute is often considered as a "classic", or "basic" instruments, an image which does not fit with reality, as flute offers in fact numerous possibilities in the way of performing, and requires a high level of practice to reach its multiple dimensions.

"Rediscovering the flute" is the motto of this programme conceived by Linea in Fall 2013 with its flutist Keiko Murakami. From Debussy's pionneering ideas to more recent works, from Europe to Japan, from bass flute to flute used as a percussion, this programme invites to reconsider the common acceptance of this very ancient instrument, which continues to inspire numerous composers and musicians.

After Ingersheim in october 2013, second opportunity to hear this concert is to come to Vendenheim, northern suburb of Strasbourg, tomorrow. All details are in the agenda

 

The concert belongs to our regional concert series devoted to enlarge the audience of new music. We thank the Espace Culturel de Vendenheim for its trust and interest in our work, and website Szenik for its regular coverage of our activity.

 

Introduction to another America

  End of the "american concert" at Musica Festival in Strasbourg, with american composer Anthony Cheung, 27th september 2012.

 

 

 

   

Our 2014 concert series kick off in Metz , the capital of Lorraine (eastern France), next Saturday, 15th February 2014 . The local venue “L'Arsenal” has conceived a complete season focusing on the United States. With two tours in the USA , and a third already underway , Linea has emerged as one of the leading French ensembles in the field of transatlantic musical exchanges. This is actually the view of many of our interlocutors and American partners, including the FACE which has financially supported the first two rounds, and that we once again thank here for making all of this possible.

The concert in Metz , like the concert at Musica Festival in 2012 , is a sort of return journey of our two American tours : who said "exchange" means by definition that this exchange works in both directions . Linea has always attached great importance that its international work can have resonances in France : the invitation of the ensemble TIMF from Korea in 2010 (after our concert in Seoul in 2009), and our public rehearsal of Péter Eötvös works which were then recorded in Budapest (2009) are some examples among others of this approach.

During its travels in the United States , Linea has encountered a young American scene particularly exciting : young composers of New York , Buffalo and elsewhere, are distinguished by an approach challenging aesthetic boundaries . Without denying the musical requirements or the questionings of their time , they reveal a refreshingly uninhibited spontaneity , in the image of a country that has seduced us with its openness, diversity and its voluntary nature .

Far from the clichés and prejudices , another America exists and deserves to be known : we will offer an overview this weekend in Metz. Come to give a look !

 

Happy new 2014 !

As many already know (we got numerous congratulations and comments on facebook on Sunday morning already), our weekend in Prague and Huddersfield was a success from every point of view.

 

Our concert at famous Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (HCMF), in particular, was loudly applauded and allowed us to take many professional contacts that will be fruitful for the future ...

Before a short break until February 15th , when our 2014 concert series will start in Metz (between our hometown Strasbourg and Paris), note that you can listen to our concerts in Prague and Huddersfield on the net :

The concert at Contempuls in Prague will be broadcasted next Sunday night , November 24, 2013 at 9:00 PM CET on the streaming concert page of the festival.

Before making a short winter break, Linea will conclude this exciting 2013 with a challenging czech-british weekend.

 

We just arrived in Prague, where this Friday, 15th November 2013, we are very happy to give our first concert in the Czech Republic. In this beautiful and fascinating city, the birthplace of writers, thinkers, artists and of course many musicians and composers, we will not seek the Mitteleuropa, this imaginary continent literature has explored. We will rather try to feel the magnetic breath of a city opened to new artistic adventures. The young and refreshing Contempuls festival, which welcomes us, embodies this trend. It is in this frame that Friday, we give "Vortex Temporum" by Gérard Grisey. A trip into spectral music that will perfectly resonate inside the walls of “La Fabrika” , a former factory converted into a place devoted to innovative cultures.

We will leave Prague by plane early on saturday 16th november, to reach Huddersfield and his famous "HCMF" for " Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival” . Powered by the city university, this festival is an institution in the world of contemporary music, as testifies the presence of many professionals from the whole Europe. This highlights the importance for Linea to come back in the West Yorkshire, after a first concert at HCMF in 2011, praised by BBC Radio 3 itself in the broadcast " Hear and Now ", where Sarah Mohr Pietsch said "Ferneyhough does demand extraordinary playing, and Ensemble Linea, they are really top performers"

This year's BBC Radio 3 offers the whole world the privilege to be able to listen to our live concert at HCMF. It will be broadcasted from 10:30 PM GMT (11:30 PM CET) .
An event not to be missed , with an exciting bill and a "dream team" of interpreters : two UK premieres - Ferneyhough and french Raphael Cendo - and a world premiere of James Clarke. For the latter our “top performers” will be joined by the great British violinist Irvine Arditti.

A good night out for sure !

Linea's concert in Prague will be retransmitted on Contempuls Festival streaming web page  on sunday 24th november 2013 at 9 PM CET.

After our sucessful concert in Magdeburg, last saturday, and before both our czech debut in Prague on 15th november and come back to Huddersfield on the 16th, we are very happy to inform you about the retransmision of our recent concert at Musica Festival in Strasbourg.

France Musique (french public broadcasting devoted mainly to classical music) will retransmit this concert next monday, 4th november 2013 at 8 PM CET (7 PM in the UK, 2 PM in New York, 5th november 4 AM in Seoul...)Performed in Strasbourg on 4th october 2013, the concert was highlighting the heritage of Fausto Romitelli, who died at 41 in 2004, with one of his continuator, Francesco Filidei, with whom Linea has engaged a tight collaboration. Both composers have a common tendency to cross over the supposed boundaries between contemporary and so called "popular" music, and they also share a same taste for introducing unusual objects or instruments in their scores. Deep and full of sensibility, dark and noisy, their music looks like a perfect soundtrack for our troubled times.If you do speak french, the retransmission will be followed by a one hour live interview of Francesco Filidei.

Electronic and "francophonic" come back in Germany

After Darmstadt, Stuttgart and Berlin, Linea is back again in Germany. This saturday 26th october, we perform at Sinus Ton Festival, in the beautiful city of Magdeburg , capital of the Land of Saxony-Anhalt, laying between Hannover and Berlin.

Sinus Ton is a fresh and exciting festival which is mainly dedicated to explore the numerous electronic approaches in contemporary music. In frame of the celebrations of the 50 years of the Elysee Treaty, 2013 edition of the festival is opening its scenes to french new music, summarized by the Motto "Frankophon!".

Linea's "francophonic" contribution to the festival consists in performing the "creme de la creme" (an expression which entered german language without changes) of french contemporary music, from "D'un rêve Parti" (a play on words with "rave party") by Mantovani to Dumont's "Lullaby and dusts" ("Berceuse et des poussières") , from Aperghis to Murail.

French-german friendship, in which Linea, as a borderline based ensemble is naturally involved for a long time, will be represented by the "Hortensien" of Annette Schlünz , german composer, born in the nearby city of Dessau which is also famous for being the cradle of Bauhaus Movement. 

An exciting rendez-vous, to be probably followed in the fulture, by other concerts in these so-called "new Länder" of the former "eastern-Germany", in which the sharp comprehension of History is merging with a high and exciting curiosity for new sonorities.

Flute is often considered as a "classic", or "basic" instruments, an image which does not fit with reality, as flute offers in fact numerous possibilities in the way of performing, and requires a high level of practice to reach its multiple dimensions.

"Rediscovering the flute" is the motto of this new programme conceived by Linea with its flutist Keiko Murakami. A programme that will tour in our native region Alsace in the forthcoming monthes. From Debussy's pionneering ideas to more recent works, from Europe to Japan, from bass flute to flute used as a percussion, this programme invites to reconsider the common acceptance of this very ancient instrument, which continues to inspire numerous composers and musicians.

First opportunity to hear this concert is to come to Ingersheim, nearby Colmar, next sunday. All details are in the agenda

Crossovers at Musica Festival

This friday 4th october 2013 at 6:30 in our hometown Strasbourg, we have the pleasure to come back to famous Musica Festival, for a "mirror-concert" highlighting the heritage of Fausto Romitelli, who died at 41 in 2004, with one of his continuator, Francesco Filidei, with whom Linea has engaged a tight collaboration.


Both composers have a common tendency to cross over the supposed boundaries between contemporary and so called "popular" music, and they also share a same taste for introducing unusual objects or instruments in their scores. Deep and full of sensibility, dark and noisy, their music looks like a perfect soundtrack for our troubled times.

 

An opportunity for us to work with brilliant french pianist Wilhem Latchoumia, and with soprano Allison Bell, back after a first collaboration for our "Eötvös CD", whose voice full of emotion will honour the poetry of Jim Morrison, at the very heart of Romitelli's "Lost".

 

A not-to-miss concert, to be retransmitted on France Musique, monday 4th november at 8 PM CET, followed, if you do understand french, by a one hour interview with Francesco Filidei.
