Camerata di Parigi
The Paris Camerata, a new orchestral ensemble led by violinists Michael Guttman and Anton Martynov, made its debut at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris in December 2010. The enthusiasm of the audience, including Charles Aznavour present at the event, convinced the exceptional musicians of the new Camerata to continue the adventure together. Very quickly, this new orchestra is requested in San Sebastian in Spain, at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels and at Cadogan Hall in London with Joshua Bell. In Paris it will be the resident ensemble throughout the Rive gauche Musique series at the Adyar theatre. Invited in Italy this summer at the festivals of Pietrasanta and Cortona in Tuscany, the Paris Camerata will perform with many celebrated soloists who include Natalya Gutman and Martha Argerich. The American composer Philip Glass will give a world premiere in 2012 to the Camerata, a new work composed especially for them, with strings, percussion, piano obbligato and solo violin. Other world premieres, which aim to enrich the string orchestra repertoire, will be added, as well as collaborations planned with world music ensembles (Klezmer, Gypsy or Tango). This ensemble, born out of the friendship between two passionate and engaging musicians with a great combined experience of baroque and contemporary ensembles, aims to perform the great masterpieces of the repertoire alongside musical discoveries essential to maintaining the public's curiosity.
