Info for Magic Mozart

Mozart’s music is magic. Insula orchestra takes the statement literally, offering a selection of works and musical extracts in which the wonderment of magical experience is a central theme. Known by the music lovers as well as by the general public, these poetic or comical melodies, duos and ensembles are performed in a succession of short, diverting and enchanting acts.

The Magic Flute, Mozart’s last opera, composed in 1791, is of course the cornerstone, with its magic bells, bewitched animals and Queen of the Night. But we will also find there some characters from the Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, La Finta semplice, Bastien und Bastienne, or from the more unusual Der Stein der Weisen (The Philosopher’s Stone).

This Magic Mozart will present three different climates: the kindness of white magic; the tumult of love and passion, found in red magic - with such Arias as Don Giovanni’s Canzonetta or "Porgi amor"; and finally, the torments of black magic, motivated by revenge and perfecly symbolized by the famous Queen of the Night Aria "Der Hölle Rache".

"Highlights are Stanislas de Barbeyrac’s Tamino’s Portrait aria, Sandrine Piau in Countess Almaviva’s solos, and Soave sia il vento from Così, ravishingly sung by Piau, Léa Désandre and Florian Sempey. Now that is magic." (Sunday Times)

Concert tours led them to the Barbican London, Theater an der Wien, Mozart Week Salzburg, to Basel and major concert houses in France.

A versatile artist, she is much in demand in the symphonic and opera genre. Laurence Equilbey was at the helm of the Orchestre National de Lyon, Orchestre National de Lille, Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire, Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, Brussels Philharmonic, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, MDR Leipzig Symphony/MDR Leipzig Radio Choir, BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales, Camerata Salzburg, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, Sinfonia Varsovia, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Concerto Köln and Collegium Vocale Gent.

Insula Orchestra
This ensemble, founded by Laurence Equilbey and the Conseil general des Hauts-de-Seine in 2012, has reached out beyond its homeland on the western edge of Paris to the rest of France and beyond, performing at major venues and high-profile festivals. In Hauts-de-Seine, a full range of cultural and educational initiatives has been designed, notably to foster awareness among potential audiences who have never had the opportunity to approach classical music, as well as educational and participatory projects involving young people and schools.

Insula orchestra’s artistic project is built around a repertoire ranging mainly from the Classical to the Romantic eras. Mozart, Schubert or Weber form naturally the core of this repertoire with symphonic programmes as well as programmes with choir and soloists. The orchestra plays on period instruments, working on sonority appropriate for today’s large concert halls. The founding of the orchestra relies first and foremost on an emotional and stylistic research. The musicians – gathered around a small group of renowned and experienced section leaders – are recruited among the young generation graduating from European specialised higher education institutions.

Tours led the Insula Orchestra to the Barbican London, Theater an der Wien (Mozart: Lucio Silla in concert version), Mozart Week Salzburg, Basel a major concert halls in France as Philharmonie Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Dijon, Poissy, Schloss Versailles, Festival Auvers-sur-Oise among others.

In spring 2017 the Insula Orchestra and Laurence Equilbey inaugurate the new concert hall Cité Musicale de d’Ile Seguin near Paris.

The first CD recordings include Mozart Requiem with the Choeur Accentus for Naive as well as Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice (Vienna version) with Franco Fagioli for Archiv Produktion Deutsche Grammophon. Arte has broadcasted Mozart‘s Mass C minor together with Choeur Accentus.

Choeur Accentus
Founded by Laurence Equilbey for the purpose of performing the major works of the A cappella repertoire and engaging with contemporary creation, Choeur Accentus is today an ensemble of 32 professional singers which appears at leading international festivals.
