Hector Berlioz

Luigi Cherubini

From Plantade to Cherubini, the common element in the works in this programme is the search for the monumental, sober and hieratic style. To express grandeur and eternity, any virtuosity is banned. Neither Plantade’s Requiem nor Cherubini’s use a soloist.

These funeral musical creations have mostly remained unpublished. They are today kept in the collection of the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Even if they were composed for very special circumstances and often in a very short time, their ambition was to strike crowds, to magnify the accompanying commemorations and to take part in an essential page of the Nation’s history: the historical rehabilitation of men and their regimes. It is their turn today to experience the honour of resurrection.
