Bussotti: Passion selon Sade Bussotti: Passion selon Sade

Posted by Ricordi 13 February 2017

On February 23, the Théâtre Bernadette Lafont of Nȋmes presents an all-new production of Sylvano Bussotti’s La passion selon Sade, directed by Antoine Gindt. Léo Warynski conducts the Ensemble Multilatérale and soprano Raquel Camarinha.

La passion selon Sade premiered in Palermo in 1965, featuring soprano Kathy Berberian, with the composer himself in the role of director, set designer and choirmaster. This was Bussotti’s first work destined for the theater. The apparently haphazard score for nine instruments (flute, oboe, oboe d’amore, horn, percussion, two pianos -  also celesta, harmonium - organ, and cello) is a totally theatrical work, and perhaps the most daring, experimental and innovative of Sylvano Bussotti’s compositions.
