Classic à Juan will host a classical concert by the Cannes Regional Orchestra on May 7, 2016, on the stage of Antibes – Juan les Pins Palais des Congrès.
Classic à Juan is a new artistic event that takes place at the Palais des Congrès of Antibes – Juan les Pins. International Capital of Jazz and city of Arts par excellence, the French Riviera town of Antibes – Juan les Pins is delighted to welcome a gorgeous classical music program which now takes place live on three dates in spring: March, April and May 2016. Three soloists of exception are invited to accompany the Cannes Provence-Alpes-Côte-D’azur orchestra (ORPACA).
Three major events of classical music
Of these three rendezvous with the Regional Orchestra Cannes Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur in the heart of the beautiful Palais des Congrès, two concerts already took place. On March 5, the prestigious violinist Nicolas Dautricourt, one of the best French violonists interpreted the Symphony No. 85 in B flat major, The Queen by Haydn and Mendelssohn‘s romantic concerto No. 2 opus 64 in E minor. Contemporary compositions by Thierry Escaih, three times named Songwriter of the Year at the Victoires de la Musique, also were at the evening program.
The evening of April 1st was more melodious with the divine flutist Jocelyn Aubrun who played Mozart and Rossini with Il Signor Bruschino, Osia it Figlio per Azzardo, and the Symphony No. 3 in D Major by Schubert.
Brams & Haydn on May 7 program
Saturday, May 7th will be the last great rendezvous in the company of the Cannes PACA Regional Orchestra and the brilliant soloist violinist Tedi Papavrami, playing on a Stradivarius of 1727 (the Reynier). Both will perform Brahms‘ Violin Concerto in D major Op 77.
Throughout the concerto, Brahms indulges in his lyrical themes, running towards radiant, melodious music. Rarely will he let him go to such dynamism, such luxuriance of rhythm.
Already acclaimed by his contemporaries, Brahms’ only concerto for violin still remains a major part of the repertoire. The Symphony No. 95 in C minor by Haydn with the soloist Tedi Papavrami: Haydn transcends the classicism, which he is, with Mozart one of two poles. He is the main link between the end of the Baroque era and the beginnings of Romanticism. Constrained to a frantic pace of production but very free in his choice of music, Haydn has significantly changed the symphony by the number and quality of his compositions of which he has set the real rules.
Since its inception, the Orchestre de Cannes Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur (ORPACA), conducted for 38 years by Philippe Bender, a guest of many festivals in France and abroad, has achieved great international tours and participated in numerous radio and television programs.
The Orchestra of Cannes Provence-Alpes-Côte-D’azur, now under the direction of Austrian chef Wolfgang Doerner, celebrates this year its 40 years and has 37 musicians.
