1983 — the beginning of the extraordinary musical adventure of five talented and creative keyboard percussionists — the Percussions Claviers de Lyon. A unique quintet that has been producing an innovative new repertoire for their instruments for over 25 years. Marimbas, vibraphones, xylophones and five brilliant musicians, constantly striving for musical excellence, reaching out to their audiences with original performances of pieces from our musical heritage, multidisciplinary shows as well as works by contemporary composers. The result —an eclectic repertoire of transcriptions and new works composed especially for the group. From Lyon, France to Pekin, from continent to continent, the Percussions Claviers de Lyon are surprising audiences with their spirited rhythms and subtle melodies, with their interpretations of Debussy, Ravel, and Bernstein as well as exciting new pieces for percussion. This is a musical performance that is perpetually unfolding, for the pleasure of all.
L’ensemble des Percussions Claviers de Lyon is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture — DRAC Rhône-Alpes, Rhône-Alpes Region and the City of Lyon. The ensemble receives support for its project from SPEDIDAM, SACEM, FCM, ADAMI and member of FEVIS and PROFEDIM.
