Will to Live


Philippe Prud’homme, piano

Light always shines brightest in the dark. Discover a series of pieces that are as uplifting as they are sombre, and be captivated by the beauty that ensues: the sonata composed by Prokofiev after the suicide of his best friend, or Liszt’s La vallée d’Obermann, inspired by the depressed hero of a novel by Senancour. These spirited performances will allow you to experience all the intensity of these great works, which will be punctuated by luminous pieces by Chopin and Hamelin. Will to Live is a profoundly human concert, incorporating universal themes that are both cathartic and liberating.
