Warning – This performance includes the use of strobe lights, which could be a potential seizure trigger for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Formed by Raphaël Pichon in 2006, the Pygmalion choir and orchestra almost immediately established itself as one of the leading performers of Baroque music played on period instruments. At heart, they also have a natural inclination to seek and reveal affinities between composers from different periods, thus proposing new ways of listening and new senses. In Mein Traum, a concerto shared with, in Pichon’s words, the “immense baritone” Stéphane Degout, Pygmalion will begin with a film dedicated to Schubert and Schumann that delves into the fascinating world of German Romantic music.
