The Ensemble Matheus in unison with New York

For over twenty years, the Ensemble Matheus has been playing the codes of classical music and constantly pushing the boundaries. A man synonymous with both challenges and passion, Jean-Christophe Spinosi simply could not miss the rendez-vous launched by The Bridge event, aimed at celebrating the Centenary of the First World War. Voyaging across the Atlantic aboard the Queen Mary 2 ocean liner, in a special concert with New York and in the Air France VIP lounge of JFK airport, the conductor and his musicians played just about every note in their repertoire with great mastery and emotion, which spectators are unlikely to forget.

On 25 June 2017, in Saint Nazaire, France, the Queen Mary 2 ocean liner set a course for New York, in a unique race against four giant trimarans. Aboard the ship, hundreds of passengers were treated to a grand premiere accompanied by a sumptuous programme of music. Riding high, Brest-based Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the Ensemble Matheus gave five concerts, taking the escapism of the maritime crossing to a whole new level. From baroque to rock, the conductor offered up an incredibly rich itinerary to a privileged audience. In the guise of a grand finale, Spinosi won over his audience with a project he initiated himself: the Chœur des 100 (the 100-strong chorus). In this way, as the day dawned on 5 July 2017, the Queen Mary 2 made her entrance into New York harbour, putting on what proved to be a breathtaking show. On the deck of the ocean liner, Jean-Christophe Spinosi brought together an exceptional chorus made up of non-professional members, all passengers aboard the ship, who simultaneously launched into a rendition of “Amazing Grace” and “Going on”. Getting everyone singing and sharing their love of music was a truly inspirational and spine-tingling “Spinosian’ moment…


Once they’d set foot on dry land once more, at the heart of New York, the Ensemble Matheus went on to perform in Central Park, within the context of the Summer

Stage Festival. On stage, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and his musicians had the pleasure of teaming up with some of their long-time accomplices, including Natalie Dessay, with whom they revisited the repertoire of Claude Nougaro and Michel Legrand, Emily Rose Bry, the Franco-American soprano as well as the pianist Franck Lucas. Finally, it was in the Air France VIP lounge of JFK airport, just before taking off back to France, that the formation performed one last concert, to the great surprise of the enchanted fellow voyagers, who were inevitably won over by the spectacle.
