Les Fragments de la Nuit

July 19, 2008

LES FRAGMENTS DE LA NUIT are a young and classically trained group who are fond of the booming salvos and infinite hope that oozes from the music of ARVO PÄRT and GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR. We welcomed them to 7ème Ciel on 19 July 2008.

The quintet are more accustomed to the space of castles and abbeys than our little 7th heavens, pretty though it is. However, they scaled down for the night and three members of the group – Aurore Moutomè (on violin) and two of her composers, Michel Villar (on piano) and Ombeline Chardes (on violin) – performed daring contemporary music with such eloquence and melancholy that it left us with the feeling of being free from the world around us.

As well as Les Fragments de la Nuit, we also welcomed PHILIPPE KOCH, photographer and friend of 7ème Ciel, (he is the man behind the images of the artists on the posters from the first season) for an exhibition of black and white photos.
