Francophonie 2018 - "Sur un air de Ramuz" with Sergio Belluz and Ioana Primus.
The Embassy of Switzerland has the pleasure to invite you to a literary and musical journey about Charles Ferdinand Ramuz and a reflection on artistic creation.
"Sur un air de Ramuz" is presented by Swiss baritone vocalist, writer and actor, Sergio Belluz and pianist, Ioana Primus featuring the famous French-speaking Swiss writer Charles Ferdinand Ramuz (1878-1947), who greatly changed the literary landscape of his country through his quest for a specific literary francophone language for Switzerland. Through texts and music excerpts, both the uniqueness and the universality of Ramuz’ literary world are presented, as well as the musicality of his language found in so many of his adaptations of popular Russian folk tales for the composer, Igor Stravinsky and in his poems set to music by conductor and composer, Ernest Ansermet and composer, Jean Binet.
Language: in French with English surtitles.
Duration: 45 minutes
