David Grimal and les Dissonances sign a modern, lively and authentic interpretation of the Complete Violin concertos by Mozart.

« Researching sources, scores, instruments, historical, aesthetic and political contexts, and any other kind of clue, is fascinating. But in spite of everything I still find it insufficient and incomplete (…) How can we make this music which is already remote from us resonate, or rather ‘re-sound’, within us? » –David Grimal
Violinist David Grimal continues his fascinating musical trip with Les Dissonances, an unique musicians collective he founded in 2004.

They publish under their own label, a new version of Mozart complete violin concertos. They brightly enlight the modernity of these vivid masteworks by melting period and modern instruments, for a renewed approach of authenticity in this repertoire.

For this recording, David Grimal offered composer and harpsichordist Brice Pauset to compose orginial cadenzas for all the concertos. In the book joined to the CD-DVD box, they share their views about authenticity in musical interpretation.

The spirit of Les Dissonances is one of bringing together disparate worlds – there lies its specificity. The ensemble creates a link between those involved in the various different aspects of music (composition, solo performance, orchestral music, chamber works) and it includes not only musicians from the greatest French and international orchestras, but also talented young artists who are just embarking on their careers.
