It is a lyrical art through the specific style of “French melody, voice and piano on poems”, in Portuguese and French.
“The idea for this project was born following the “Soleil Rouge” recital, in 2022, at the Verdun Summer Festival, in France, where we put together a complete program of 20th century Spanish composers. the Brasilia recital was born, because it allows us to embody the universe of different composers through specific techniques,” explains Élisabeth Nivet.
The show is presented in Brasilia by Casa Thomas Jefferson, as part of the Sextas Musicais project, an initiative that offers the public every week, free of charge and in person, performances of the best Brazilian and international music. The project’s presentations have already become quality references among the public, artists and specialist critics.
