CavrosArts Festival: Early Music in the Chevreuse Valley 2024

Concert au musée GRATALOUP
Britannico Concert at the Grataloup Museum - June 8, 2024 - 8:00 PM

For its second edition since its inception in 2023, the CravosArts association presents a series of concerts from June 7 to June 16, 2024, in historic and emblematic locations throughout the Chevreuse Valley, including one on June 8th at 8:00 PM at the Grataloup Museum.

The nonprofit association "CavrosArts," registered under French law (1901), based in Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse, has a primarily cultural mission focused on promoting artistic heritage spanning from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, emphasizing historically informed interpretation. Its purpose is to support and promote artistic practices, particularly music and dance, along with related activities, as well as cultural and educational outreach projects. Its membership includes professional artists specializing in these fields, as well as enthusiasts of nature and artistic endeavors.

Opera and concert series inspired by Racine's tragedy "Britannicus" - June 8th at 8:00 PM at the Grataloup Museum.

In 1670, Jean Racine dedicated his famous tragedy "Britannicus" to the Duke of Chevreuse of that time. Nearly a century later, crossing French borders, Carl Heinrich Graun, a German composer in the service of Frederick II of Prussia, drew inspiration from it to compose a magnificent opera unjustly forgotten: "Britannico."

In parallel with the "Corps et Mouvement" exhibition currently at the Grataloup Museum, the characters Britannicus and Junie will be mirrored musically and scenically to convey the pain of separation and the joy of reunion through the concert on June 8th at the Grataloup Museum.

Featuring: Nicolas Zielinski (Nero), Loïc Paulin (Narcissus), Paulo Castrillo (baroque violin), Felipe Jones (baroque bassoon).

The festival is sponsored by the renowned harpsichordist Pierre Hantaï.

Guided tour of the "Living Bodies" exhibition

Before or after the concert, Milena Grataloup will offer an immersive guided tour of the "Living Bodies" exhibition, showcasing iconic works by the symbolist painter Grataloup centered around the theme of the body, along with contemporary creations by the artist Antoinette Rozan. This unique experience will allow participants to delve into an artistic journey where themes of the body, symbolism, and contemporary expression converge, offering an enriching perspective on the evolution of art through the ages.
