Yesterday, I attended with an immense happiness the concert of Philippe and Jérôme Ducros in Hulencourt
It was a concert in an intimate surrounding no more than 225 guests
The nearness of both artists, the friendly atmosphere reflected well the atmosphere of the lounges where were created these airs in the Belle Epoque
top off the happiness, after the show, we had dinner beside Philippe and Jérôme, with whom we discussed in any simplicity
Mr Ducros, very nice person, confided me that there would be a continuation in the CD opium
As for Philippe, having spoken about Caravagge, he said to me that it was absolutely necessary to see the show with Marie-Nicole Lemieux. The program begins to be set up and it is sometimes difficult to announce one year in advance which airs will be sung.
My cousin knew in no way PH, she was amazed by the program, by his voice and conquered by the kindness and the simplicity of the artists.
Midnight had rung for a long time when we left this high society and joined our houses with stars in the eyes

Dear rikkapijemy!

What a great experience
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] When is this recital with Marie-Nicole Lemieux? Is she going to sing in the Caravaggio opera?

Pilarddcc, the recital with Marie-Nicole Lemieux is that we will see in Valladolid. Laughing
No, in "Caravaggio" does not sing no woman, I think.

Sorry, Pilarddcc, I was wrong.
In "Caravaggio" Maria Riccarda Wesseling sing two roles: Anna and Filide, two women who served as models to Caravaggio.

Thank you , rikkapijemy.

I was there , too with my husband. It was very intimate. The location was very fitting for the French Melodies which are designed to be sung in a "salon". My understanding husband said that this was the most beautiful version of the French melodies he had experienced up to now. There were more husbands who supported their wives by taking photo's them with Philippe and Jérôme.

PJ felt sorry because he had to leave in hurry to catch the train on 19th feb. in Amsterdam for Paris, so that he could not have time to talk with people.

I found that so many people enjoy and appreciate this forum, even so they are not registered or acitively involved.

We can get so much information without efforts.
some of them can not read English or have less time to read this forum.
For example, if there was no forum, I could not have found this concert in Hulencourt.
I am not good in expressing myself in writing, thank you for giving so much information to me. smile

It was a wonderful experience to have dinner with Philippe and Jérôme (even though the food was not so fantastic).

Philippe said that some surprises are coming up related to CD.
But he did not say what they are.

Damn, should have gone...it is close by and hubby loves Opium...

But with just two more days rehearsal until I had to do Pergolesi (today! And it went well!) , I just could not spare the time... I already could not focus on the Stabat Mater because of the Amsterdam recital last month, so I had to learn the entire piece in three weeks. Both parts, because I changed fach halfway through....
He was lucky with the train: it was delayed. We left calmly for our own train, by regular public transport, even missed our tram, and our train was on the other side of the platform, and we were gone before the Thalys was. All that stress, for nothing!

Thank you for sharing your feelings and impressions about this concert. piano

I would have loved to be there !

I have seen Philippe twice at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and I'd like to hear him in a smaller space.

I really look forward to the next "opium" CD ...

And about the concert itself, I completely agree with peacefulworld & rikkapijemi.

The venue was excellent for this French melodies, very intimate place ! Acoustics were not 100% but fair enough ... very good balance between piano and voice... wonderful piano peformance by Jérôme who is as nice as PhJ but more "reserved"....

After the concert we had time to discuss and had dinner together (about 25-30 people in total)... wonderful organisation by the Hulencourt staff !!!!

We have been talking mostly about Caravaggio he was working on and about his previous Händel concert in Amsterdam which was fabulous !

There was still enough time for signatures and pictures and .... I think we were all breathless when going home.... impressed by the music, the professionalism of the "performers" and the kindness and openess of the human beings behind the artists.

thank you

How do you find out about the up coming concerts, CD's or Opera's? I look and look at the web and at the virgin's website and I can't find out much information about future events.
I was very lucky to see Mr. Jaroussky in Niobe,Regina de Tebes in Massachusetts and with Apollo's Fire in Ann Arbor Michigan. Both times I was too shy to talk to him. I listen to his voice everyday, in the morning and in the evening. How do you stand in front of a stranger, who's voice you are so intimate with, and tell him what his voice and music means to you? I could not find the right words.
I am also jealous of you who live in Europe and can go to see his concerts very often.
You are very, very lucky!!
I appreciate when you post and tell about the concerts.
Thank you very much!

Don't worry: we all feel that way. smile I guess he pretty much knows that too.


His own site is sadly inadequate, so for concert information, we just look here....
