Soprano Melody Louledjian and pianist Martin Surot will perform a floral musical catalogue with composers like Satie.


The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. As part of its Chamber Cycle, it offers the programme Fleurs, a concert of French melodies by the soprano Melody Louledjian and the pianist Martin Surot. The tickets have a single price of 15 Euros. There are also discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, the unemployed and large families.

Melody Louledjian, who played Violetta Valéry in La Traviata of Ópera de Tenerife, leads this project in which she presents "a bouquet of 61 flowers, a true musical floral catalogue", as the artist announces. Together with pianist Martin Surot and with her voice full of nuances, she portrays each of these flowers, with their contrasting and moving characters. Sometimes mischievous, sometimes dreamy, each flower is unique and is represented by French composers: Erik Satie, Jean Wiéner, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Lili Boulanger and René de Buxeuil.

A French of Armenian origin, Melody Louledjian began her musical career with the piano at the Nice Conservatory. Strongly attracted by lyrical singing and the stage, she entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Lyon. She has over thirty roles in her repertoire, including Violetta (La Traviata), Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor), Musetta (Bohème) and Norina (Don Pasquale). At the present time, she tackles a rather lyrical repertoire and has made her debut at the Theatre Dortmund with the role of Amazily in Spontini's Fernand Cortez, but she approaches classical and contemporary repertoires with equal joy. She has performed in numerous international theatres, is a regular guest of various ensembles and festivals and has released several albums.

After receiving awards for piano, chamber music and vocal accompaniment with distinctions at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, the French pianist Martin Surot improved his skills at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. The Maurice Ravel International Academy awarded him a prize on two occasions and invited him to perform at the Bonnat Museum in Bayonne and at the Ravéliades festival. He has been the winner of the international competitions Piano Campus, Maryse Cheilan Ville d'Hyères and Citta di Ostra, he stands out for his "fine, delicate and colourful playing" (Le Monde de la Musique).
