February 6 – Concert at Musicora
The accordionist is invited by the Sacem at Musicora on Saturday, February 6. This invitation is the consequence of a long collaboration with the institution, which gave him a “carte blanche” with his instrument.
Pascal Contet offers a concert / dialog, a musical moment punctuated by talks with the public. The program is made of pieces from Franco Donatoni and Franck Bedrossian, and several of his compositions / improvisations. This will be the occasion for the musician to discuss about his practice of the instrument.
Come discover or rediscover this instrument in a new way, serving both classical and contemporary music.
The concert will take place at 7 p.m. in the Scène mezzanine of the Grande halle de la Villette and will last around 1h15.
