WHY MAKE THIS FESTIVAL?

Prayer is this mystical incantation to a superior and practically unattainable essence. A kind of call from the heart, whether inflamed or in disarray, full of faith or desperate.

Opera, through the dramaturgy inherent in its writing, offers the ideal terrain to express the colors of prayer, this abandonment of the heart to the inevitability of fate. Destiny, moreover, a central element of most operas, is this inexorable wheel which advances and which crushes the passions, impulses and desires of everyone.

Destiny is also to be distinguished from the Divine essence in opera. Fate has neither ears nor eyes, neither heart nor soul, neither reason nor feelings. On the contrary, God is the one who can influence destiny. It rarely influences, let's face it, theatrical design. But this is what makes the prayers more touching and inspired: to hope to touch the creator, the heart must overflow and the sincerity must be flawless.

In addition to the dramaturgy of the librettos which allows the most noble impulses to express themselves, the opera provides music of unequaled expressiveness, which sustains them, embellishes them and ennobles them. The Romantic era in particular was very creative in this area and Western Europe provided the most beautiful prayers ever set to music.

The Orchester Romantique de Paris proposes to bring together the sincerity of sincere prayer and the perfection of 19th century music during a series of concerts in a large Parisian church (Saint-Eustache normally).

CLOSING CONCERT

To complete this festival, we would like to end in style with a closing concert, ideally taking place at the Château de Chamarande. This concert will honor Beethoven, the first of the Romantics.

With the idea of musically feeding the inhabitants of the region, we offer des chamber concerts every night of the week, in the castle and in the halls and churches of the neighboring villages. These concerts offer a more intimate setting and a very different sound from the symphony orchestra. The soloists of the orchestra are honored there. With in particular the first sonata for piano and cello by Brahms, the Trio op.100 by Schubert and Quintets by Schumann.
