Javier Perianes

In Paris, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées was packed yesterday evening for a concert that Orchestre de chambre de Paris dedicated to the victims of the terrorist attacks from last Friday. Musically it was soloist Javier Perianes who came the closest to this dedication with his almost elegy-like second movement of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto. Before the concert the Spanish pianist told Pizzcato’s Remy Franck: « This concert will be very special to me. »

Perianes got a rave applause from the audience. The concert was conducted by Adrien Perruchon who had filled in on short notice for sick Gerard Korsten.
In an announcement at the beginning of the concert, the Orchestra thanked the audience for being present and showing that culture is a strong response to hate and terror.
