13th International Organ Festival
August 5, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
13th International Organ Festival: Organ and recital: “Et ta main fermera les yeux” (“And Your Hand will Close My Eyes”): Pierre-Marie Escourrou, readings and Michel Alabau, organ, organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs on Sunday 5 August, at 5 pm Cathédrale de Monaco.
On 5 August, there will a concert with readings, based on the work of the poet and essayist Jean Miniac, “And your hand will close my eyes …”. The author steps into the shoes of Johann Sebastian Bach. He imagines a diary written by the composer towards the end of his life. His aim is to speak of Bach in a different way. He has more than risen to the challenge, as the reading of this original composition enables us to get close to the musician, of course, but also the son, the husband, the father, the social being, the walker, the religious man … in short, all the facets of this composer, who remains one of the greatest geniuses in the history of humanity.
