Laurent NAOURI / Guillaume de CHASSY

To do this, Guillaume de Chassy transcribed for the voice themes from Serge Prokofiev's major works ; then he adapted them with texts of great Russian poets. Amazing proposal that required great partners. 
The project includes high-performance improvisers such as clarinettist Thomas Savy and bassist Arnault Cuisinier and the fantastic voice of the great baritone Laurent Naouri
These "Imaginary songs" are at the crossroads of lyrical and jazz; a dive into a poetic and singular universe. 
Extracts from Hans Eisler's 'Hollywood Songbook' complete the program.

Pierre Genisson : new review by Christian Merlin - Le Figaro

PIERRE GENISSON / in LE FIGARO - 21 juillet 2019 
"Dans la cour des grands" Festival 'Saou chante Mozart 2019'
La thématique de l’édition 2019 étant «le souffle de Mozart», rien d’étonnant à ce que les instruments à vent y aient la part belle. L’occasion d’un moment de pure grâce avec le Quintette
pour clarinette et cordes joué en apesanteur par Pierre Génisson, legato infini et pianissimo impalpable. Soliste? Prima donna? Surtout pas! Ce que l’on retiendra, c’est la volupté avec laquelle il a fondu son timbre crémeux dans les archets veloutés des Modigliani, faisant de sa clarinette un cinquième instrument à cordes.
