Orchestra. Studio #2

2016
performance ( seven orchestra conductors, seven music stands, seven scores)

 

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 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.
