Staël, peindre l’inaccessible

Edith Canat de Chizy
World premiere:
2016

The life and work of the painter Nicolas de Staël have inspired and intrigued composer Edith Canat de Chizy for more than a decade, raising questions relating to artistic destiny and the perils of creativity. The release in 2015 of Nicolas de Staël’s collected letters coincided with a new commission from the Paris Mozart Orchestra. The result is a compelling evocation of de Staël’s tragic life story with readings from his correspondence and projections of his paintings.
