Îlot musical

Whether big or small, isolated or part of an archipelago, an island always has a special aura. A place of wandering and travel, it can also provide a mooring for intimate lyrical events, where people come together around a work or a musician. Three musical ports to sail to during October.

The Japanese archipelago is celebrating the composer Toru Takemitsu, who went in search of a “sea of tonality.”

Seychelles The Festival Kreol is a colorful week-long event that lights up the main islands of the Seychelles (Mahé, La Digue and Praslin). Travelers are transported to an enchanting exotic location, steeped in regional culture. The stated aim is to bring together Creole-speaking communities and to showcase multiethnicity. Strong on atmosphere, with high-octane music to boot.

Tokyo Peter Serkin, a virtuoso committed to promoting contemporary music, is joining forces with English soprano Claire Booth to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu. Takemitsu, who was influenced by serial music and marked by John Cage’s work, wrote compositions that, rather than marrying East and West, attempted to go beyond frontiers to reach universality. A world in itself.
