The Greek-Russian conductor Teodor Currentzis is one of the most dazzling new additions to classical music in recent years. Currently resident at the Théâtre du Châtelet, the artist is crossing the Pont au Change tonight for a small-group concert in the Sainte-Chapelle, a gem of the Parisian Ile de la Cité.
The Parisian audience discovered the eccentric artist in 2008 as conductor of Don Carlo in the Opéra de Paris. Since then, Teodor Currentzis has repeatedly surprised with his daring and high-energy interpretations. You love or hate him - but the young director's uncompromising intensity leaves no one indifferent.
In the ethereal setting of the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, Teodor Currentzis invites you to a truly extraordinary concert. To enhance the program - Western and Byzantine music - the conductor brought the virtuoso ensembles MusicAeterna and ByzantiAeterna onto the stage: a total of two soloists, five musicians and 56 choir singers.
