Emmanuel Séjourné & Sylvie Reynaert
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”.
