Olympic Spring! String sextet

By Solistes de l’Orchestre des Pays de Savoie

This midday concert’s themes are the mountains, Winter and the Olympic spirit in light of the XXIIIe Winter Olympics of Pyeong Chang in February 2018.

With solists of The Orchestre des Pays de Savoie:

  • Frédéric Piat, violin
  • Johan Veron, violin
  • Vanessa Borghi, alto
  • Aurélie Métivier, alto
  • Nicolas Fritot, cello
  • Jean-Sébastien Barbey, cello

Except the anecdotic figure of cellist, alpinist and skier Maurice Baquet, friend of photographer Robert Doisneau, classical music has little associations with the universe of the Winter Olympic Games. Through this programme of chamber music, the musicians offer an immersion within the baroque theme of the Olimpiad, written by the great poet Metastasio and thus worked on by numerous composers.
