ALAIN PLANÈS, TURBULENT INFINITY: One film, one concert

Back
The LEFFEST – Lisbon & Sintra Film Festival’17 presents, in a special session, Alain Planès, Turbulent Infinity, a film by Solrey, followed by an Alain Planès concert.

A piano virtuoso, drawn as much to the classical as to the contemporary repertoires, passionate for painting and poetry, Alain Planès is the pivotal figure in Turbulent Infinity, a film written and directed by violinist and filmmaker Dominique Lemonnier, known as Solrey. An intimate and humanist portrait of a versatile artist, Turbulent Infinity reveals the sources of inspiration and the key encounters of a life (Miró, Boulez, Pressler, Serkin…), also woven with the ties and correspondences that music summons in the different disciplines that fascinate Alain Planès.  

The screening will be followed by an Alain Planès recital, who will play Debussy and Beethoven.



BIOGRAPHIES

One of the more eclectic pianists of our time, ALAIN PLANÈS was a member of the Pierre Boulez’s Ensemble InterComtemporain, having later started a remarkable career as a soloist and chamber player with the leading orchestras and releasing numerous recordings, mostly for the Harmonia Mundi label.    

A virtuous violinist, with an outstanding past as a chamber and orchestra player, Dominique Lemmonier, known as SOLREY, extends her eclecticism into jazz, tango, music for the theatre and cinema, combining them with visual arts, video creations and text, namely with the Traffic Quintet, which she formed in 2005.
