Concert Yury Revich in Paris

Salle Pleyel, Paris - 7 March 2024 at 8pm

To mark World Water Day, and in partnership with UNICEF France, the symphony of water is an ambitious and eclectic concert devised by Yury Revich and the association Quatre Couleurs. 

Halfway between classical and electronic, mixing different artistic disciplines, virtuoso violinist Yury performed his original music from his EP (OLARIO) released on 5 March, bringing together unique compositions for neo-classical instrumentals, a delicious blend of classical, pop and electronic music.

Who is Yury REVICH? 

Having performed in some of the world's most illustrious halls, including New York's Carnegie Hall, Vienna's Musikverein, the Tokyo Metropolitan, La Scala in Milan and the Berlin Philharmonic, alongside the most prestigious orchestras such as the UK's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Italy's Verdi Milano and Germany's Rhineland-Palatinate Philharmonic Orchestra, this is his first time playing in a major French venue.

A violinist acclaimed the world over and adopted by the cinema.

Throughout 2023, Yury performed across Europe and Asia on a continental tour (Korea, China, Japan) alongside classical music legends such as Martha Argerich and Steven Isserlis. He is also touring Latin America with his own compositions and violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Paganini. In 2022, he already featured in Billboard Classical, the classical music chart published by the prestigious American magazine of the same name. The 7th art is no exception. In 2023, Yury composed the music for the new film produced by Oren Moverman (nominated for an Oscar and winner of an Emmy Award).

A concert to mark International Water Day.

Aware of the humanitarian challenges posed by the water shortage in too many countries (2.5 billion people have no access to water, including 450 million children), Yury REVICH, an artist committed to the climate cause, took this project to heart with the Quatre Couleurs association, which supports local, ethical and responsible craftwork. UNICEF Ambassador in AustriaIn 2021, Yury was also commissioned by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to create a piece bringing together 100 musicians from around the world to play in honour of nature. In keeping with his commitment, this concert event was dedicated to the theme of water.

Part of the proceeds from the concert were donated to UNICEF France. An exceptional staging in the presence of Alpange pianos which Yury chose for their acoustic quality, digital functions and innovative design, took the audience on a journey through 5 artistic disciplines (music, song, dance, drawing and perfume) accompanied by a chamber orchestra, arranged for the occasion by Baptiste Capitanio in an exceptional artistic effervescence. The song was driven by Doryan Ben (finalist in The Voice), Lorène Aldabra (Sacem self-production award), Erminie Blondel (opera singer) and Jeremy Kapone, ambassador for the Quatre Couleurs association.
