Nocturnes électroniques is about the pleasure of immersing one of the most beloved piano repertoires of all times into a brand new different soundscape, in which the piano sound blends into the electronic's, while electricity takes its place among acoustic waves...
With this new project, the Swiss pianist, composer and conductor Matthieu Mantanus pursues its research into the contemporary, building bridges between worlds which only rarely meet, but which he proves with his work have a lot to share. His quest is in the same time free and without complex, and firmly rooted in the tradition and the repertoire.
Seated at the keyboard, he gives life to the masterpieces Chopin wrote two hundred years ago, and then reinvents them in a fascinating complementary alternation between memory and discovery.

*Feasible with a normal concert piano, Nocturnes électroniques can also be presented, if the organizer wishes, on an "automatic piano" (for example a Yamaha Disklavier, like the one used during the avant-première) in order to use directly the acoustic instrument in the electronic pieces trough MIDI signals.
