The art of silence in front of a starry sky,
Only the flower and the insect know it
The art of singing for singing,
only rustling forests and sea waters know it
the deep silence of life on earth
it is the rose that teaches us, the rose opened on the bush.

(Federico Garcia Lorca, the silver poplars 1919)

Longing for a rose

Singing desires, with Eléonore Bovon et Brigitte Cirla

Like the destiny of a rose, the new show of the singers and perfomers Eléonore Bovon and Brigitte Cirla unwinds gently a collection of love songs, ranging from traditionnal music (Georgia, Bulgaria, Italy...), to French songs (Françoise Hardy, Edith Piaf...)and contemporary tunes.

The colours of the violin and the Indian harmonium, the sounds of differents languages from all over the world, shape a perfomance rooted in the vocal techniques of world music and the endless pleasure of polyphonic singing.

Eleonore Bovon’s original arrangements molds each piece with a specific vocal, rythmic or harmonic virtuosity.

Longing for love and poetic metaphors are explored through various composers and authors ; Federico Garcia Lorca, Mahmoud Darwich, Fernando Pesoa, Nizar Qabbani, Ariel Ramirez, Philippe Sarde, Henry Purcell…

In this surprising journey of songs and texts, the desire becomes intense, capricious or playful, travelling all over the world without attaching. The young, languid, shy, solar rose will not be easily picked up.
