Songs of Experience 

Tallis - Elgar - Bowie - Schubert- Brel - Rossi - Tavener - Salvador - Flecha - Caplet...

Songs of Experience is one of Blake’s anthologies which depicts two contradictory states of the human soul: childhood’s innocence and adulthood’s torments. Discovering life through nature, love, joy, pain, introspection… So many experiences translated into songs in this programme. The experience of sound, the transformation of its material remains the heart of Perspective’s project.


 


What's in a Name?

Monteverdi - Schubert - Ravel - Legrand - Brel - Toto - The Beatles - Byrd - Simon & Garfunkel

Whether they remind us beautiful memories or bitter insults, names all bear a story. So many eternal faces studied by Perspectives in this programme. The Lamento d’Arianna (Monteverdi), The Adieu to Amaryllis (Wilbye), the undying love for Michelle (The Beatles) or Rosanna (Toto) or even Sylvia’s ode (Schubert)… Names have always inspired poets and musicians. To say a name is expressing a feeling. What characters hide behind these names? To what pictures do they send us back? How do they resonate in us?

Perspectives invites you to imagine concert differently, to de-compartmentalize Music. The singers gather around this programme with the will to open up a new dimension and an original approach in order to offer a new perceptive space, far away from stylistic splits and well-worn paths in which Music often loses its Arianne’s thread.
