Salle des concerts - Cité de la musique
Between her debut album La Biographie de Luka Philipsen released in 2000 and her 2016 LP You’re Gonna Get Love, Keren Ann covers every shade of songwriting, endlessly renewing her musical footprint. Keren Ann—either the most French of international female singers, or the contrary—is known as much for her gracious melodies bathed in strings as for her stripped-down folk songs. With six albums to her name in both French and English, she can easily flit from stage to stage around the world, performing solo with her guitar one day, with a backing band the next, and alongside an entire orchestra for gala events. The Lyons-based musicians forming Quatuor Debussy have enthusiastically ventured into all manner of repertoires in their 28 years together, and could not pass up the opportunity to work with a major pop composer. This first came to pass last autumn, in their own hometown, with a concert at Chapelle de la Trinité. The second meeting between the string quartet and Keren Ann, and their first in Paris, will be at the Days Off festival. We will hear, delivered heart to heart with this exceptional accompaniment, not only the intimate resonances and blues-tinged songs of her latest album, but also a selection of her best from previous LPs—classics masterfully revisited and made to shine anew.
