Brodsky in Switzerland

Musique des Lumières

Musique des Lumières commissioned five composers to create works based on the enigmatic poems of Joseph Brodsky, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987, highlighted by the magical voices of soprano Laurence Guillod and baritone Pierre-Yves Pruvot. The resulting programme forms the latest edition of the «Music & Words» series, which commissions works inspired by great literary authors of our time. Following the editions on Julio Cortázar and Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Joseph Brodsky is the third album in this series. After the CD recording in collaboration with the label IBS Classical and the successful premiere in June 2022, Musique des Lumières is now embarking on a tour.
