Heinz Holliger: French music event

Have you noticed that the sound of the flute is close to the human voice? This idea came to the famous Swiss oboist and composer Heinz Holliger, who put it into practice on his CD “Éventail de musique francaise”, released last September, with a selection of French works.

Through his flute he evokes sonic experiences that can only be compared to those of a singer. Holliger’s virtuoso performance impresses with the works of Ravel, Debussy, Milhaud, Saint-Saens, Messiaen and others. Using the Vocalises-Etudes of oboe literature, which is still little known and rarely played, he continues to devote himself to French music. By highlighting its multi-faceted colors and…shimmering harmonies sparkling in the ether.

Holliger is accompanied on piano by Anton Kernjak, while French harpsichordist Alice Bellogue in André Jouvellet’s “Controversia pour hautbois et harpe” reminds us of how wide the oboe repertoire was in the twentieth century in captivating dialogues between Holliger and piano or harp.

Whether as a soloist or member of an orchestra, Holliger is one of the greatest international artists in his field and is delighted to be recruited by renowned conductors and music partners.
