  • Aix-en-Provence 2024 Voice Residency

    Jun 2024 - Jul 2024
    • La soprano Lilit Davtyan met de côté ses vocalises flamboyantes de diva belcantiste pour entrer à pas discrets dans la nuit silencieuse. Elle place le moteur de l’émission vocale en arrière-gorge, comme dans cet arrière-monde qu’est la mort selon George Crumb : « La nuit silencieuse sous un ciel étoilé - Le rivage et la vague au murmure assourdi. », tandis que le piano préparé enrobe la partie chantée d’une harpe d’ondine. Sa voix se fait sinueuse, insinueuse, dans la chair vocale, se glisse comme à l’intérieur du son, la matière micro-polyphonique propre à l’écriture de Ligeti. [translated] Soprano Lilit Davtyan puts aside her flamboyant bel canto diva vocalises to enter discreetly into the silent night. She places the engine of the vocal emission in the back of the throat, as in that afterworld that is death according to George Crumb : "The silent night under a starry sky - The shore and the wave with a muffled murmur.", while the prepared piano envelops the sung part with an undine's harp. Her voice becomes sinuous, insinuating, in the vocal flesh, slipping as if into the sound, the micro-polyphonic material specific to Ligeti 's writing.
