Les Siècles are happy to be invited at one of the most important classical music festival in the world : the BBC Proms in London. See you on Wednesday, August 16th at 7:30 pm in the mythical Royal Albert Hall for a programm about exoticism in French music.

Les Siècles and Cédric Tiberghien present a travel accross mystified Orient, from Lakmé‘s luxuriant India to Namouna‘s Corfu island, passing by Louqsor where Saint-Saëns creates his Piano concerto no.5, Egyptian. They reveal tormented passions in Samson et Dalila and supernatural strenghts in Franck’s Les Djinns.
