Ensemble Les Disonnances Performing at the George Enescu Festival 20 September 2017
With David Grimal as soloist, Les Disonnances will first play a piece by celebrated Romanian musician and composer George Enescu before continuing on to pieces by Sibelius and Bartók, for a programme dedicated to these 20th century European composers who so well represented their homelands in their music. The resolutely European programme showcases the wealth of diversity on the continent.
Founded in 2004 by David Grimal, the collective Les Dissonances incorporates musicians from the leading French and international orchestras, established chamber music specialists and young talents at the start of their career for a collaboration founded on the quest for excellence and sharing. The ensemble, performing without a conductor, has for primary objective to present the public with a new vision of works from the mainstream repertory. Les Dissonances is in residency at the Opéra de Dijon and is regularly invited by the Philharmonie of Paris and on prestigious European stages.
