Fauré’s Requiem, Sky burial


Charles Gounod
Saint François d'Assise
Gabriel Fauré

Under Laurence Equilbey’s conduting, Insula orchestra and accentus reprise this program performed last year at the Seine Musicale, in Aix-en-Provence and in Hong Kong. Mat Collishaw’s video installation highlights the profound spirituality of Gounod’s Saint François d’Assise and Fauré’s moving Requiem. In this powerful video named Sky burial, the British artist draws inspiration from a Tibetan funeral rite to denounce our relationship to nature.
