With the Canticum Novum ensemble, Jean-Clément Jollet, Hervé Roten, Jean During and Nissim Sultan

An evening dedicated to the relations between music and religion, and then to the ecological question, conceived and organized by the Villa Gillet and the Institution des Chartreux, as part of the festival La Nuit des Idées. In collaboration with the Fonds de dotation des Chartreux and RCF.
