Paris – Jean Barraqué: „La nostalgie d'Arabella“

03 Feb 2021 World premiere ONLINE

Online premiere of „La nostalgie d’Arabella“ by Jean Barraqué

Olivier Messiaen admired him for the „noble art of his music and thought“. Now another composition from Jean Barraqué’s estate is being premiered: "La nostalgie d'Arabella" after a text by Maurice Beerblock with an attractive instrumentation. This continues the series of first editions of unpublished works by Jean Barraqué which stem from the archives of the Association Jean Barraqué and the Bibliothèque nationale de France respectively.

The premiere takes place in the framework of a concert performed by the Ensemble Cairn at Festival Présences of France musique and is being broadcast today together with the Paris premiere of the "Pièces pour piano“. The performers are Jean-Frédéric Neuburger (piano), Isabelle Druet (mezzo-soprano), and the Ensemble Cairn under the baton of Guillaume Bourgogne.

Performance materials of these works are being prepared by Bärenreiter.
