Bienvenue a Galanta

Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra performing Galanta dances by Zoltan Kodaly, conducted by Christophe Mangou, with Regis Royer providing narration in French at the Espace Léo Ferré at 16:00, part of the OPMC Music for a young audience.

Galanta’s dances are to Kodaly what Hungarian dances are to Brahms: lively, deep and passionate music emerging from his own memories. Galanta is the village where he spent his childhood. He experienced his first musical emotions there with a young gypsy friend for whom music punctuates the joys and sorrows of life. Recorder and record player in hand, Kodaly, who has become a composer, decides to go in search of the gypsy soul and to do this surveys the Hungarian lands.

Christophe Maé anniversary concert at the Grimaldi forum

For his 15-year career, Christophe Maé has decided to celebrate the release of his first album Mon Paradis with his audience, during a tour of a few exclusive dates!

Passionate about music since adolescence, Christophe Maé has tried his hand at multiple instruments, including guitar, drums and violin, while working on his voice very early on, with the examples of his idols Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye in mind. It is therefore no coincidence that Christophe Maé turns to soul and rhythm and blues.

The concert will take place at 20:30 at Salle des Princes at the Grimaldi Forum.
