In June, Philippe Manoury will celebrate his 70th birthday. The first birthday candles were lit already in January by the Arditti Quartet at the Philharmonie de Paris.

The Philharmonie de Paris and Radio France are dedicating a major retrospective to Philippe Manoury in 2022. Additional concerts take place in many European concert halls, including in Lugano, at the Berlioz Festival, in Porto, Orléans, and Strasbourg (click here for a complete list of concert dates).

At the start of the birthday year, the Arditti Quartet (15 January and 18 January) and the Quatuor Diotima (17 January) performed works by the jubilee as part of the String Quartet Biennial in Paris. Learn more about the performances of the four string quartets by Philippe Manoury in the magazine of the Philharmonie de Paris.

Another highlight of the year is the world premiere of a work for twelve percussionists with the Paris Percussion Group, which will take place in May at the Auditorium de Radio France. In addition, the orchestral works États d’alerte and Ring will be performed by the Orchestre national de Radio France under Cristian Măcelaru and the Orchestre de Paris under Lin Liao. A project with the SWR Symphony Orchestra and Teodor Currentzis is planned for September 2022.

We too are celebrating Philippe Manoury and his work: Tagged by our Happy Birthday button, we have put together interviews and background reports from previous years. An overview of the performances of major works during the birthday year is also available on the website of his publisher Durand Salabert Eschig.


Intelligent programmes: We look forward to exchanging ideas.
