Salle de concert — Conservatoire

Ensemble Musique Avenir and Véronique Lacroix perform Géométrie sentimentale by Ana Sokolović.

Sokolović goes back to school! Every semester at the Conservatoire, the young musicians of the Ensemble Musique Avenir along with their conductor, Véronique Lacroix, put together a concert focusing on contemporary music from both here and abroad. For this year’s Homage Series to Sokolović, the conductor chose to play Géométrie sentimentale, a work she is very fond of as she commissioned and premiered it in 1997, before recording two different versions of it on CD.
