Théotime Langlois de Swarte, violin; Tanguy de Williencourt, piano
Théotime Langlois de Swarte, one of the most brilliant violinists of the new generation, and his accompanist Tanguy de Williencourt on piano, resurrect the alternately light and serious world of the Parisian salons and concert halls of the Belle Époque.
This perspective, alternately cast to Germanic horizons or fixed on the Mediterranean dazzle, of which Fauré represents a miraculous point of balance, is naturally found in César Franck, a composer often too hastily classified as an exclusive Wagnerian, and in Reynaldo Hahn, just as unfairly ranked among the entertainers from the southern hemisphere. Hearing the violin and piano sonatas of the first two, and the transcription of the famous À Chloris of the third in the same program will highlight unexpected correspondences.
