20:00 Dark Tranquillity (Sweden)
Dark Tranquillity is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg. They are considered one of the pioneering acts of the Gothenburg metal scene, which also includes bands such as In Flames and At the Gates. Formed in 1989, the band honed their chops for a few years and debuted on record in 1993 with the album "Skydancer". Follow-ups "Enter Suicidal Angels" (an EP) and the full-length "The Mind's I" appeared in 1997, marking a tightening of the group's sound into a more compact attack. In 1999, Dark Tranquillity departed the Osmose label in favor of a deal with Century Media, which was consummated with the release of the more goth-flavored "Projector" later that year. "Haven" was released in mid-2000, continuing the less traditional approach of its predecessor. Afterwards, the band would continue moving in a heavier direction with 2002's "Damage Done" and 2005's "Character", which found the band getting more atmospheric and aggressive. In 2007 they decided to split the difference between the old and the new, bringing back Stanne's melodic vocals but retaining the heavier sound for the album "Fiction". In 2010, Dark Tranquillity released "We Are the Void", followed in 2013 by the critically acclaimed "Construct". 2016 saw both the departure of longtime bassist/guitarist Martin Henriksson and the release of the band's eleventh studio long-player, "Atoma".

19:00 Jean-Christophe Spinosi (France)
Jean-Christophe Spinosi is a French conductor and violinist, the founder of French orchestra Ensemble Matheus. Different productions have since enabled Spinosi to enjoy musical friendships with artists such as Cecilia Bartoli, Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Philippe Jaroussky, with whom he recorded the album Heroes for EMI-Virgin Classics, a disc whose sales achieved triple-gold status. From 2007, Spinosi conducted every season new opera productions with the Ensemble Matheus at the Théâtre du Châtelet and he still regularly performs at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, the Theater an der Wien or the Wiener Staatsoper. For several years he has worked with stage-directors and numerous orchestras. His last two recordings for Deutsche Grammophon – Miroirs with the Ensemble Matheus and Lucifer with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo – received the “Choc” distinction from Classica magazine. At this concert Spinosi will be joined by Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra to perform some of the key works by Maurice Ravel, Achille-Claude Debussy, and Camille Saint-Saëns.
