The Nuits d'Uzès d'Uzès program
The Nuits Musicales d'Uzès is a 2023/2024 season full of arpeggios and that juggles with notes and musical styles, "an eclecticism which will satisfy the expectations of the public and pay tribute to excellence", as Eric Desnoues, director of the Nuits Musicales, comments.
Xmas and New year's eve programme
Messiah on 20 December
To end the year in style and to offer a stimulating musical follow-up for both artists and audiences, Les Nuits Musicales d'Uzès is programming "without a doubt the most frequently performed oratorio in the history of sacred music", which will be performed by four magnificent soloists, soprano Adèle Carlier, alto Nicolò Balducci, tenor Laurence Kilsby and bass Victor Sicard, accompanied by the choir and orchestra of the Royal Opera of the Château de Versailles.
Saturday 27 and Sunday 28, two dates to remember for an unmissable event with Les grandes dames du jazz
Continuation of the first part, which was a great success: Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Etta James... will be honoured as well as the great classics of the 20th century by Pascal Horecka's Gospel Philharmonic Experience, founded in 2018, "which combines the excellence of the classical symphonic world with the fervour of gospel" (pascal-horecka.com).
Beginning of the 2024 season
The symphony concert on 23 February 2024 at L'Ombrière
The young Moldavian violinist Alexandra Conunova, a disciple of Renaud Capuçon, will delight Tchaikovsky lovers with "a violin concerto, Op. 35, one of the most difficult and passionate works in the violin repertoire, with a crazy and flamboyant romanticism", a true bravura piece. This will be followed by Mozart's 40th Symphony, accompanied by the Avignon-Provence National Orchestra.
André Manoukian's Voices from the Levant Saturday 16 March 2024
Enjoy this fantastic tribute concert to the grandmother of artist André Manoukian, Anouch, "guided by the Balkans who mixed their Bulgarian voices with the atmospheric jazz of his trio".
Good to know : Anouch also "inspired the song that gives its title to the album of the musician and composer, known for his lyrical flights of fancy".
