UN-VISIBLE NATURE: Bach / Busoni, Debussy and Creations by Joanna Goodale for Tibetan piano, gongs and bowls

" Music contains the mysterious correspondences between Nature and the Imagination "

Claude Debussy, 1902

Since the dawn of time, many composers have been interested in the relationship between cosmic movements, sounds, proportions that structure nature and sacred places. This quest for the absolute is found transposed into music, as if to make this omnipresent invisible frame audible.

To celebrate JSBach's birthday on March 21, the concert will open with the sublime Chaconne in D minor (transcribed for piano by F. Busoni): a sound cathedral of breathtaking emotional density. Then the program will give way to the works of Debussy, who reinvented the language and musical time of his time by freely drawing inspiration from Nature and music from the Far East. It is in the continuity of this approach that Joanna Goodale will propose creations mixing the piano with gongs and singing bowls, according to a narrative trajectory over the water.

Jean-Sebastien Bach (1685 - 1750), Chaconne in D minor (transcription: Busoni)

Claude Debussy (1862 - 1918), Reflections dans l'eau, Clair de Lune, Jardins sous le Pluie, The Snow is Dancing, And the moon descends on the temple that was, Pagodas ...

Joanna Goodale (1988 -), Creations for piano, Tibetan gongs and bowls

Joanna Goodale is one of the most innovative pianists around. Franco-Swiss

of Anglo-Turkish origin, it is distinguished by an eclectic and free route, linking the

classical repertoire with sacred oriental music. His album BACH IN A CIRCLE

combining Bach's work with his arrangements of Sufi music was noticed and

broadcast by France Musique, RFI and RTS.

A graduate of the HEM in Geneva, Joanna Goodale benefits from the advice of pianists

internationals such as Cédric Pescia and Anne Queffélec. She is regularly invited to

play in Europe and share in concert its own "compromises" in connection with the

interpreted repertoire.
