The melodious violin

For the “Massenet, a must!” cycle, the concert “The melodious violin” is staged on Tuesday October 25, 2022 at the Palazzetto Bru Zane, center of French romantic music in Venice.

Although Jules Massenet never composed for solo violin, some of his compositions were transcribed for that instrument: his operatic arias, of course, notably the famous “Méditation” from Thaïs, but also pieces from his oratorios, such as “Le dernier sommeil de la Vierge”, the prelude to Scene IV of La Vierge. This concert presents those “imported” works, together with original pieces for violin by Massenet’s students Paul Hillemacher, Reynaldo Hahn, Fernand Halphen and Gabriel Pierné, thus providing a comprehensive overview of such compositions during the Belle Époque, from time-honoured forms, such as the sonata (reinvented) to meditative or virtuosic genre pieces.

The artists of the concert are:

  • Théotime Langlois de Swarte, violin
  • Tanguy de Williencourt, piano


Location: Palazzetto Bru Zane, Venice

Schedule: October 25, 2022
