ALEXANDRE SOUILLART, saxophone
Reconnu pour la vitalité de ses interprétations, son énergie de l’instant, Alexandre Souillart est un acteur incontournable du saxophone français. Il s’exprime pleinement dans ce programme où sa légèreté et son audace côtoient sans cesse la recherche de l’idée juste ou de l’émotion suggérée…
Révélation Classique de l’Adami, lauréat du célèbre Concours international Adolphe Sax de Dinant (Belgique), Alexandre Souillart met l’accent sur une promotion du répertoire original de son instrument dans des projets multiples en soliste et au sein de diverses formations.
Résolument tourné vers la création, favorisant les rencontres et collaborations avec les compositeurs d’aujourd’hui (Markeas, Leroux, Gervasoni, Durieux, Mondon), il s’épanouit dans les musiques contemporaines et projets ouverts sollicitant l’électronique ou l’improvisation libre.

MATTHIEU ACAR, piano
Piano préparé, tempéraments en quarts de ton… Tous les subterfuges sont bons pour aviver le plaisir de Matthieu Acar à mettre l’instrument en « résonances » ! Même sans ces artifices, son jeu orchestral et plein de relief est en parfaite adéquation avec l’univers riche et coloré de ce programme.
Lauréat du concours d’Orléans en 2014 et premier grand prix d’autres compétitions faisant la part belle aux répertoires modernes et contemporains, Matthieu Acar aime par dessus tout créer des passerelles entre les genres, les styles et les époques. Curieux de tous les répertoires et notamment des moins connus, il y défend des interprétations signifiantes qu’il partage avec de nombreux musiciens, tant instrumentistes que chanteurs.

23 05 2017 2 Alla francesca Crédits Yves Massarotto CIMM

Alla francesca was founded in the early 1990s as an ensemble of chamber music dedicated to very ancient music in its diversity. Its repertoire ranges over the art of solo singing—monody or polyphony—and instrumental music, from the songs of the first troubadours (late xith century) to the art of the Renaissance (xvith century). The ensemble also quite regularly looks into the connections between these repertoires and some types of living musical traditions.

Alla Francesca regularly features in the greatest international festivals of early music and performs worldwide.

Under the direction of Brigitte Lesne, it here releases its eighteenth recording, the first one on the Paraty label.

Brigitte Lesne, singer, is the director of the Alla francesca and Discantus ensembles, both of them specialized in medieval music.

She also performs in various recital formations (solo, duets, trios…) and accompanies herself on various instruments, medieval harps and percussions. She is deeply involved in artistic transmission and leads advanced workshops by subject every year at the Paris Centre for Medieval Music. Since 2012 she has taught the Gregorian repertoire and early polyphonies to B.A. students (« Music, Interpretation and Heritage » at the Versailles conservatoire), and since 2019 to M.A. students (« Performing styles of early music » at the Sorbonne university). Lastly, she is ever more frequently called upon as an expert to devise and lead projects with vocal ensembles, choir schools, conservatoires, universities, choirs…
