The two artists were clearly destined for greatness… Soprano Sabine Devieilhe and Conductor Daniele Rustioni have enjoyed dazzling careers since their respective beginnings at the Opéra de Lyon and the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence. This concert, to be broadcast on 20 July at 10 a.m on Culturebox, will be devoted to Mozart—of whose oeuvre the French soprano has become a world-renowned performer—and to Russian music.

The concert will celebrate the vocal achievements invented by Mozart and the deeply-moving lyrical tones of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8, performed by the Orchestre de l’Opéra de Lyon in a version re-orchestrated by his student Rudolf Barshai, in this homage to two of lyricism’s founding fathers.
