Crystal Palace


"The glass room that Hugo had built on top of his house, Hauteville House, allowed him to see the ocean from all sides. The work of Laurent Lefrançois often evokes for me the sea in movement with its flexibility, its swirls, its reflections, its murmurs or its rumblings. His writing is subtle, his orchestration highlights the colors and the character of the instruments in an immediately perceptible way. - Frédéric Lodéon

Classica " The atmosphere is by turns happy and dynamic, or dreamy and melancholic ".

Pizzicato « The orchestra develops a finely nuanced ensemble color in Le nouveau Balnéaire, in which one might imagine the coastal landscape of Normandy as well as the inevitably associated hustle and bustle of a port like Le Havre. In addition, L’Orchestre Victor Hugo Franche-Comté acts as accompanist to the soloists with attentive and carefully involving interplay that carries them along. »
