After five seasons at the Lyon National Orchestra and one season at the Liège Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as a Solo Viola, Corentin has been 3rd Solo Viola at the French National Orchestra since January 2015. In 2005, he received his First Prize in Viola on the unanimous decision of the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional in Boulogne-Billancourt. That same year, he enrolled in the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. Corentin has always been passionate about a career in an orchestra, and in 2006 he joined the French Youth Orchestra. A musician and chamber music performer, he has collaborated with Menahem Pressler, Zaïde Quartet, Voce Quartet, Dissonances, Balcon, the Auvergne Orchestra, and the Philharmonic Orchestra, among others.
What if we took Arnold Schoenberg for his word? ‘The transfigured night’ was inspired by Richard Dehmel’s poem. Wouldn’t it be more spectacular if we only had our ears to receive its beauty? After the poem being read in darkness, the audience would hear Schoenberg’s masterpiece in its sextet string version in the shade. This setting would allow the audience to experience the piece in a new way. A light projection will display dark colours to recreate a night atmosphere. The musicians will exist through their voice and the sound of their instruments. This experiment has never been made before because the six musicians will have to play by heart, with no partition or music stand. ‘The transfigured night’ was created between Germanic Romantism of the XIXth century’s and the modernism Shonenberg and its two disciples Berg and Webern established. Interpreted by Ana Millet, Juliette Salmona, Corentin Bordelot, David Haroutunian, Pauline Bartissol, Sarah Chanaf. Reading by Simon Abkarian.
