Duo Concert

Emmanuel Séjourné & Sylvie Reynaert

8:30 pm
Pavillon, main hall

Foun­ded in 2011, the duo of Syl­vie Rey­naert and Em­ma­nuel Sé­journé (both pro­fes­sors at the Stras­bourg Con­ser­va­toire and the Stras­bourg Con­ser­va­tory of Mu­sic) brings en­ergy and pas­sion th­rough a ver­sa­tile and vir­tuoso repertoire.

At the cross­roads of dif­fe­rent styles — po­pu­lar mu­sic, tango, ori­gi­nal com­po­si­ti­ons or sur­pri­sing ar­ran­ge­ments of clas­si­cal mu­sic — the duo has quickly es­tab­lished a si­gni­fi­cant in­ter­na­tio­nal re­pu­ta­tion and has per­for­med in France, Ger­many, Italy, Spain, Pol­and, Es­to­nia, Den­mark, Bul­ga­ria, Tur­key, Bra­zil, China, Ko­rea, Ja­pan and Australia.

The in­ter­na­tio­nally re­now­ned mu­si­cian Em­ma­nuel Sé­journé di­stin­gu­is­hes hims­elf th­rough a tri­ple career: as a com­po­ser, per­cus­sio­nist and te­a­cher. His spec­trum ran­ges from clas­si­cal mu­sic to im­pro­vi­sa­tion. His mu­sic is rhyth­mic, ro­man­tic and en­er­ge­tic, in­spi­red by both Wes­tern clas­si­cal mu­sic and po­pu­lar cul­ture (jazz, rock, non-Eu­ro­pean mu­si­cal forms).

Em­ma­nuel Sé­journé is head of the per­cus­sion de­part­ment at the Con­ser­va­toire de Stras­bourg and at the Aca­dé­mie Supé­ri­eure de Mu­si­que de Stras­bourg — Haute École des Arts du Rhin.

He is a jury mem­ber at num­e­rous in­ter­na­tio­nal com­pe­ti­ti­ons, e.g. the ARD Mu­sic Com­pe­ti­tion Munich.

Syl­vie Rey­naert stu­died at the CNSM Lyon. In ad­di­tion to tea­ching, she re­gu­larly works with com­po­sers, dancers (Ca­ro­lyn Carlson Na­tio­nal Cho­reo­gra­phic Cen­ter) and pain­ter Ma­thias Du­ha­mel.
In 2015, Syl­vie Rey­naert was ap­poin­ted prin­ci­pal pro­fes­sor of the per­cus­sion de­part­ment at the Stras­bourg Con­ser­va­tory. She te­a­ches all clas­si­cal per­cus­sion in­stru­ments and leads the large per­cus­sion or­ches­tra “Ko­los­sal Per­cus­sion Orchestra”.
