Tribute to Veljo Tormis in French
Loïc Pierre along with Pierre Gief have risen to the challenge of translating the original Estonian text of Veljo Tormis’ work into French. The Nordic pieces for two, three or four parts are transformed by the latin language, evoking the same dances and landscapes with a reinterpreted prosody and the same beautiful poetry.
Loïc PIERRE - France
Founder of the Mikrokosmos chamber choir in 1989 and also a composer, scenographer and stage director, Loïc Pierre has for the past twenty years consistently worked to mix the art of choral singing with other disciplines that are often far from the world of singing and may sometimes come from unexpected fields such as video, cinema, hip hop dance, or stage design lighting. Over the years Loïc Pierre has created his “laboratory of enthusiasm” where Mikrokosmos singers tame and sculpt new soundscapes in collaboration with a new generation of composers.
