As a flautist, Odile Perceau has quickly developed an interest in composition and in conducting both orchestras and choirs. Since 1984, she has been composing regularly. In 1990, her Pièces Sacrées pour Chœur de Femmes and Corps de Ballet d’Hommes were performed in the Saint-Eustache Church in Paris. During that year, she also conducted Moteverdi’s Orfeo at the Château de Lascours Festival. In honor of the bicentenary of Mozart’s death in 1991, she conducted the Altaïr Symphonic Orchestra and the Children Choir of the Opéra de Paris in both France and the Czech Republic. In 1994, she composed Vivre, a musical comedy dedicated to children living with AIDS. Odile Perceau founded the Khloros Concert in 2001.
The Bordeaux Quartet
The Quatuor de Bordeaux brings together four soloists who come from very different backgrounds, yet share the same passion for chamber music: Stéphane Rougier, Cécile Rouvière, Tasso Adamopoulos and Etienne Péclard. Performing to cheering audiences in Nantes, Bilbao, Tokyo and even Saint-Petersburg, the Quatuor de Bordeaux is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
