⚠️ CANCELLATION ⚠️
Due to the measures taken in the context of the health crisis, we regret to announce the cancellation of the BOULEZ/LE VISAGE NUPTIAL concert originally scheduled for 20 and 21 January 2021.

“Disappear now, my escort, standing afar”: thus begins The Nuptial Countenance, a poem by René Char from his anthology Furor and mystery. The young Pierre Boulez made it the subject of a work that has acquired iconic status, a score that is outside the box and complex. Conducted by Richard Wilberforce, accentus teams up with the Latvian Radio Choir to deliver a virtuoso interpretation of this incandescent music that sings of love and passion.
