Les fieffés Musiciens 2016

<p> <strong>« Les fieffés Musiciens »</strong> is a chamber music festival which takes place in Cotentin (Basse-Normandie) in the third week of July.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <i><em>But what is chamber music ?</em> </i>Chamber music is the art of playing together from duos to octets. <i><em>S</em><em>o, it is a classical music festival ?</em> </i>Well, yes ! <strong>But Les fieffés Musiciens is</strong> <strong>a festival like</strong><strong> no other…</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The artists first ! Real </strong><strong>chamber musicians</strong><strong> !</strong> <em>Well, that’s normal </em><em>for a "chamber music festival"…</em> But that’s not always so easy ! At the fieffés we think that it is a long-running-work that allows a maximum of complicity. A chamber music ensemble shouldn’t be ashamed of its age ! That’s why we invite only ensembles which play together all year long and are destined to last.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Les fieffés Musiciens : guaranteed chamber music without speed dating !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Quartet1-1462210399" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311115/quartet1-1462210399.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <i><em>Music is nice, but when I travel to Cotentin in the summer, it’s to enjoy the region…</em> </i>Well, no problem ! The second principle of the festival is <strong>to play in wonderful places </strong>: this year in the Manoir de la Fieffe, Château de Flamanville, Église de Portbail and Château des Ravalet ! <strong>Free entry !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Fieffe_65-1462209914" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311112/fieffe_65-1462209914.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <i><em>To choose ensembles and places is good, but is there a guideline in this festival ? </em></i>Of course ! Every summer, the festival has <strong>a new theme</strong> which runs all week through the different concerts ! </p> <p>  </p> <p> This year’s theme will be <strong>the humor in music </strong>: Whether Satie, Hindemith, Poulenc or Mozart, all classical composers will be there to make you laugh ! A parody of a string quartet, the aria of <em>Les Mamelles de Tirésias</em>, secular Renaissance songs, the fieffés Musiciens will be there to show you that classical music can be fun!</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>But does this project really work ??</em> Well, yes! ...  <strong>the first edition was a real success</strong>, reported on by the local media, and there were more than 350 people in the audience, who are looking forward to the second edition ! </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dsc01849_1600-1462210915" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311117/DSC01849_1600-1462210915.JPG"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Would you discover more about our programme? ... This way !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>Programme</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u><u>Sunday 17th july, 6 p.m., Manoir de la Fieffe</u></u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Fieffes-musiciens-concert-1-1462209292" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311104/fieffes-musiciens-concert-1-1462209292.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> The festival opens at the <strong>Manoir de la Fieffe</strong>, as it should be ! The idea of the festival  was born at the Manoir de la Fieffe. This place has given its name to the festival ! </p> <p> <strong>A</strong> <strong>w</strong><strong>onderful mansion of the XVIth century</strong>, it has been taken over by Emmanuel de La Fonchais and Michel Niciejewski who have designed some beautiful lodgings and guest rooms. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>But who will we be listen to??</em> <strong>The piano duo Y’voir</strong>, founded by Delphine Armand and Yun-Ho Chen, winner of the Munich ARD Competition 2015, will open the festival ! <strong>A </strong><strong>type of </strong><strong>black and white which take all the orchestra’s colours</strong>. That’s the principle of the two young women !</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u><u>Tuesday 19th july, 6 p.m., Manoir de la Fieffe</u></u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-2-1462209331" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311105/les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-2-1462209331.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> From the Manoir de la Fieffe, we’ll go… east !! The<strong> Duo Mercutio, violin-piano</strong>, winner of the international competition Léopold Bellan 2016, and the<strong> Duo Philine, voice-piano</strong>, born in the class of Anne Le Bozec at the CNSMD in Paris, take us to a festive and capricious Vienna! </p> <p>  </p> <p> From Wolf’s irony to Kreisler’s lightness, from Mozart’s jokes to Richard Strauss's decadent touch, without skiping the other Strauss, Johann and its operettas; the four musicians fly through time to offer you <strong>Viennese suprises of all kind !</strong> In the Manoir de la Fieffe, you couldn’t dream of anything more exotic !</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u><u>Wednesday 20th july, 6 p.m., Château des Ravalet</u></u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Fieffes-musiciens-concert-3-1462209388" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311107/fieffes-musiciens-concert-3-1462209388.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> This time, we meet at the <strong>Château des Ravalet</strong>, a Renaissance castle of blue shale located in a huge park, and which is <strong>the Manoir de la Fieffe’s elder brother </strong>: both were built at the same time around 1560 by Jean II de Ravalet. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The string quartet Ernest</strong>, winner of the competition Tremplin Jeunes Quatuors of the Paris Philarmony, will play for us ! From Beethoven to Kurtág we happily discover many facets of the string quartet’s history up until the quartet’s parody of Hindemith <em>Minimax</em> or the modernity-gag <em>Concerto for a typewriter...</em></p> <p>  </p> <p> The concert will take place during <strong>the exhibition of the painter Frédéric Faye </strong>: you’ll see colours and flowers outside... and inside !! </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Triptyque-1462212046" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311124/triptyque-1462212046.jpg"></p> <p> Frédéric Faye, <em>Roses </em>(triptych)</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u><u>Thursday 21th july, 8.30 p.m., Orangerie du Château de Flamanville</u></u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-4-1462209463" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311109/les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-4-1462209463.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Meet <strong>Philine and Mercutio</strong> again in the delicate frame of the <strong>Orangerie de Flamanville </strong>! </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>French follies </strong>: we could describe the programme as such! Rameau, Debussy, Satie, Poulenc and more will be a delight to your ears and spirits! </p> <p>  </p> <p> The four musicians, supported by the <strong>Society Pierre Wissmer</strong>, will also play works of this french composer of the XXth century, unjustly unknown.</p> <p>  </p> <p> And don’t miss visiting the park of the XVIIth century castle which contains <strong>1150 dahlia varieties</strong>!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u><u>Friday 22th july, 7.30 p.m., Église Notre-Dame de Portbail</u></u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-5-1462209424" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/311108/les-fieffes-musiciens-concert-5-1462209424.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>And last but not least !</strong> We invite you at the <strong>Church of  Portbail</strong>, an old roman church of the XIth century situated in the port, <strong>with a superb accoustic</strong>, to listen to the <strong>Trio Musica Humana</strong>, a vocal trio founded by three singers of the Maîtrise de Notre-Dame in Paris. They will sing songs of the Renaissance and of the XXIth century –no time limit for the “human music”!- And let’s enjoy <strong>the pleasure of being by the sea!</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>

Allocation of funds

<p> <em>So, why ask for our help ?</em> Because a festival costs a lot of money !! You have to pay the artists, to accomodate them, to rent the pianos, etc… In our case, <strong>the costs amount to 11000€ ! </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>But you’re too late !!</em> Calm down, <strong>the essential </strong><strong>financial</strong><strong> work has b</strong><strong>een </strong><strong>done !</strong> We need only 2000€ more, <strong>1000€</strong><strong> of which</strong> <strong>are for the communication. And that’s where you can help us ! </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A festival is nothing without good publicity</strong>, which can attract the audience, and a strong visual identity ! The money you give will serve to the design (500€) and the poster printing (500€).</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>So, with 1000€ you’re ok ?</em> Sure, but you can always give more !! <strong>A young festival</strong> <strong>always</strong><strong> needs</strong><strong> money !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>For example</strong>, with 500€ more we could <strong>print more posters</strong>, with 500€ more we could <strong>take photos and videos</strong>, with 500€ more we could <strong>invite the audience to meet the artists</strong> and have an after-concert drink… <strong>the ideas, we have them</strong>, and maybe one day, we could pay our artistic directors !!</p>
