For several years now, David Grimal has been leading one of the most exciting musical projects of our time with Dissonances. Now, joined by his quartet and a few friends, he is giving two concerts and two programmes at the Amphitheatre. The works of Ernest Chausson will be in the spotlight, particularly, his Poème for violin and the monumental Concert. To complement these treasures, David Grimal has gathered together pieces by the greatest European composers from the opening years of the 20th century, including Romania’s Enescu, Austria’s Schönberg, Poland’s Szymanowski and Hungary’s Kodaly.
