Sarasate’s violin dance introduces the Ideal Love, immortalized by Petrarque in his Sonnets… which inspired Liszt to write three masterly pieces of the piano repertoire. Followed by the masterpiece he composed “Après la lecture de Dante”, crossing Hell and Purgatory before the vision of Paradise…
Tartini then sang on the violin in an overwhelming way Dido’s Love-Passion abandoned by Aeneas, which led her to choose death… Which inspired her one night the fascinating “Trilles du diable”!
To these extraordinary musics, Alain Carré’s great voice tells Joachim Du Bellay, founder of the French language, in Italy, where he lived the strategic years of his life, became passionate about the Petrarch Sonnets, was the first translator of Virgil… In comparison to Dante’s Divine Comedy.
