Bye, bye summer and welcome automn ...
Hopefully, despite the wake-up calls about climate change with fire, water and drought,
you have been able to recover to some extent and are now ready for the start into the new season.

Unfortunately, even the re-entry into the upcoming season
will probably still take place against the background of Putin's war,
and there is still no global agreement on how to save our little planet. 

We can only try to do our best with courage, persistence and confidence -
even if it hurts here and there ...

For this, I wish us insight and imagination - and the power
and the strength to do, what is right and urgently needed.

Art and culture can't do everything in life, but without it,
 a many few things would be nothing...

Cordially  your's

Music  written for the ThdS
Music from "Cds à ID"
After more than 40 years of his continous, ery intense work as musical director of Ariane Mnouchkine's Théâtre du Soleil, Lemêtre has embarked on an extended journey around the world to find new inspiration, encounter new things and to pursue his multifaceted ideas and interests.

Among his most important concerns, however, belong his many workshops, master classes, seminars  and international conferences in which he spreads his knowledges and his large collection of original instruments gathered from all over the world to pave the way for future generations in the countries of origin, where some instruments and musical traditions have already been forgotten or lost, to experience making music with them again.

And he wants to pass on his artistic experience and knowledge to students, professional stage artists and interested amateurs within the framework of international workshops and seminars, for whose subject matter and orientation he uses the term "Le Corps Musical", with which he centers upon the  the body as an instrument of scenic expression.

Together with comedian and accordionist Aboudarham and the magician AlafrezHe he just formed the Trio Magisterium to create an idiosyncratic concert program:
Lemêtre's music performed on his instruments inspired by the  cultures of the world, combines with humor, burlesque and magic to creats feather-light moments between magic and wit.
In spring 2024 the 'magic' Trio will be on tour.

He continues to write music for theater, dance , festivals and  films.
Recently "Lampejos" a spectacular production of the dance company "Cisne Negro" / Sao Paulo was premiered.
And for his soundtrack to the film "Here the Mistral blows hard" he was just awarded the Palme d'Or Cannes 23 for best film music!

Workshops and seminars can also be booked through ART WORKs.

For his theater music, Lemêtre has invented own instruments for individual scenes, characters, and areas of tension, or has reassembled elements of instruments from a wide variety of epochs and cultures between Orient and Occident.
Thibault Saladin made the wonderful film "JJ Lemetre - Musicien Insolite" about this process of creation, in which Lemêtre explains the development of an individ
ual new instrument and then plays it.

And  2 more publications are available upon Lemêtre's work:
 "Jouer avec la musique" a book upon his work with the Théâtre du Soleil has been published by Actes-Sud.
And a DVD with 4 films by Anne Lacombe upon his music,
"L'oeil et l'oreille"  has been released at Fortdecafe.



Olivero's current commissions include a work for the Boulez Ensemble, upon which she is working on behalf of Daniel Barenboim.

Our last cooperation with Shlomo Mintz for  the Violin Concerto by Dvorak he performde with Würth Philharmonics was received with enthusiasm by press and audience:

"If the audience is already thrilled by this interpretation of Dvorak, it is downright ravished by Shlomo Mintz's highly virtuosic encore - the Paganini Caprice No. 24."

We're happy, that this cooperation with Schlomo Mintz, which ends with the start of season 23/24 has been emphasized with this beautiful final event.
Bye, bye Maestro and thank you for the beautiful moments with your  music...
