Les Fragments De La Nuit are a classically trained ensemble who are fond of the infinite hope that oozes from the music of Arvo Pärt and Godspeed You Black Emperor!.
The French quintet are more accustomed to the space of castles and abbeys than our little 7th heavens, pretty though it is. However, they scaled down for the night and three members of the group – Aurore Moutomé (violin) and both band's composers, Michel Villar (piano) and Ombeline Chardes (violin) – performed daring contemporary music with such eloquence that it left us with the feeling of being free from the world around us.
As well as Les Fragments de la Nuit, we also welcomed Philippe Koch, photographer and friend of 7ème Ciel, for an exhibition of his work. Philippe took most of the photos used for the posters of the first and fourth season of Les Concerts du 7ème Ciel.
