L’Heure Bleue is nominated for the Victories of Classical Music !
This new year comes with a news: our album, L’Heure Bleue, released last June, is nominated for the Victories Classical Music !
It’s a great victory for this program, a tribute to Hildegarde de Bingen whose luminous work resonates with Hartmann’s Concerto Funèbre, a true call to the resistance of the German composer and bearer of hope and a deep faith in future of humanity. In echo, the two pieces for string octet by Shostakovich dedicated to the poet Volodia Kurtchavov, in memory of this deceased friend. These visionary characters and their appeals against blindness served as a basis for Philippe Hersant, who composed A vision of Hildegarde for Le Concert Idéal, which completes this program.
We are counting on you to support us by watching the ceremony on February 24 on France 3.
L’Heure Bleue is available on all listening platforms : smarturl.it/HeureBleuePiketty

“From time to time, in the world of classical music, an album appears that is unlike any other, as surprising by the originality of the concept as by its program. L’Heure Bleue is such a unique achievement. ” Audiokoneser
“L’Heure Bleue represents that moment when time, like the music of this incredible ensemble, seems to stop, to freeze in a kind of grace.” Hebdoscope
“A rich and inspired disk, which invites you to look deep within yourself.” ComposHer
