Trois Trésors: La musique retrouvée de trois compositeurs disparus pendant la Premiere Guerre Mondiale, Claude Dubosq (France) Botho Sigwart ( Allegemagne) at FS Kelly (Australie)

En hommage au sacrifice des combattants Australiens, associés au front occidental ou ils périrent nombreux en 1916, notamment à Pozières et Fromelles, ce programme réunit symboliquement trois compositeurs français, allemand et australien. De Duboscq, des œuvres composées pendant son service, auxquelles celles d'un compositeur Allemand mort pendant la guerre feront écho. Puis un florilège des plus belles pages du compositeur Australien Kelly, écrites dans les tranchées près desquelles il perdit la vie. Avec en contrepoint, un rappel de la Bataille de Gallipoli, de par la présence talentueuse de Güray Basol.

En partenariat avec le label discographique Hortus
Avec le soutien de la Mission du centenaire de la Première Guerre mondiale
Sous le haut patronage de l'Ambassade d'Australie

Louise Page soprano, Christina Wilson mezzo, Tamara-Anna Cislowska et Güray Basol piano, Christophe Latham violon et directeur
