Stunning concert project about the Amazonian rain forest
Stunning concert project about the Amazonian rain forest, with music from Heitor Villa-Lobos to Philip Glass, conducted by the extraordinary Simone Menezes, with images by the legendary photographer Sebastião Salgado, created at Opéra de Rouen Normandie and soon at Philharmonie de Paris, then around the world: "With great attention to detail and deep understanding of orchestral colours, Simone Menezes made the music vibrate in the most intriguing fashion. And thus rose, before our ears, the Amazonian Forest. One would have thought that each note of the score was written precisely for this project for each of Salgado's photos as it was just then in front of our eyes. There are no words to describe the power of the connection between these images and this sound. A total osmosis persisted throughout the performance, thanks largely to the conducting by Simone Menezes - and what a discovery this artist is! - adding colour and shape to this project, without ever being superficial."
