Inaugural Concert of the Spring Festival
The sunny days are back! The Spring Festival opens with an exceptional concert of Russian music performed by the PSL Orchestra and Choir at the Conservatoire Supérieur d'Art Dramatique. A "rite" of spring that will leave no one indifferent.
As spring returns, the PSL Orchestra and Choir brings us a little bit of the Russian spirit to awaken our sleeping senses. Under the direction of Johan Farjot, the musicians of PSL play three composers from the Tsar country. A program that will take you to the steppes of Central Asia with Borodin's music and will give full place to the piano with Rachmaninoff's concerto as well as an Elevation by Karol Beffa, one of our most renowned contemporaries and professor at the ENS.
