In 1780 the physicist Aimé Argand invented the lamp. With this device, humankind began the race to master a terrain that until then that was prohibited: the night. Almost at the same time composers began to publish works titled notturno, conceived to be performed after sunset. The genre was initially associated with the piano works of John Field, and subsequently Frédéric Chopin. Since then, many composers have identified a goldmine in the night: ghosts, dreams and nightmares. The performance of the works in this series will be accompanied by a particular lighting design to evoke these mysterious nocturnes.
