Performance "Orchestra. Study # 2" de Valentina Vetturi, chemin François-Furet 8 à Genève le samedi 3 septembre 2016 de 16h30 au coucher du soleil, avec Kanako Abe, Irene Gómez-Calado, Cristina Corrieri, Christophe Eliot, Nicolas Krauze, Armando Merino, Thomas Posth, programmation .perf | Walk on the Public Site.

 

Seven professional orchestra conductors are called to direct the same score, a piece by Maurice Ravel composed in 1905 for seven instruments: Introduction et allegro. Pour harpe, flûte, clarinette et quatuor. The gestures are as rapid and precise as those normally addressed to an orchestra; however, the musicians are not present. Every director will interpret the same score, performing the piece for his/her own invisible ensemble.

The performance is open and continuous, the piece lasts eleven minutes circa and every director repeats it for a number of hours with a pause of one minute that separates his/her own end by the new beginning.
The public has free access to the performance.
