The Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Lionel Bringuier and Alexandre Kantorow give two concerts at the Foundation to present the world premiere of the work commissioned by the Fondation from Guillaume Connesson.

Guillaume Connesson is one of the most fascinating composers of his generation, with multiple influences and a very personal style, free from aesthetic and ideological conventions. His rich, captivating pieces have met with great success both in France, where he was named Composer of the Year in the Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2019, and internationally. 

Naturally, the Fondation Louis Vuitton wanted to showcase this leading musical figure and has commissioned him to write a piano concerto. Framed by the two guiding figures of Fauré and Poulenc, Guillaume Connesson's piano concerto will be performed in its worldwide premiere by Alexandre Kantorow with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Lionel Bringuier to close the 2022-2023 concert season at the Fondation.
