Alain PLANES

A great lover and connoisseur of painting, no less learned in his passion for poetry, Alain Planès enjoys a career in his own image: right from the start he has followed the path of life rather than the siren songs of a glory that demands too many compromises. There is in him something of a curious blend of Proust and Wilde. 
With the first he shares his relationship with time, profound, expanded, Schubertian. With the second, a certain intellectual dandyism, a form of refined cynicism that nonetheless does not sacrifice tenderness. 
From a mother with an artistic temperament, a painter and music-lover, he has inherited and retained fervent humility and disinterestedness of gesture. In the end it is this that creates style – rigour is of little use without grace. 
This multi-faceted sensibility discovered the piano at five, first played with orchestra three years later, and set off for the United States after the Paris Conservatoire in search of another way of making music: with Pressler, Sebök, Primrose and Starker, whose regular concert partner Alain Planès long remained in the USA and Europe. 
Soloist, chambrist, accompanist, teacher – every aspect of his art arouses his interest. Moreover, he had the opportunity of discovering the entire classical and contemporary repertoire by playing it through on two pianos with François Michel, a friend of Stravinsky’s, in whose home Michel had mingled with the great intellectual figures of the time such as Malraux, Deleuze, Cassandre, and later Miró. 
When he returned to France a few years later it was to become, at the request of Pierre Boulez, solo pianist of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, where he remained until 1981. His in-depth work with such eminent composers as Boulez, Stockhausen, Ligeti and Berio set the final seal on the eclecticism of his playing, and prompted the foremost music festivals to seek out his presence. These include La Roque-d’Anthéron, Montreux, Aix-en-Provence, and the prestigious Marlboro Festival where he has appeared for many years now, faithful to his exceptionally close association with Rudolf Serkin.

Yaacov AGAM

Issu d'une famille juive pratiquante fils de rabbin, Yaacov Agam se forme d'abord à Jérusalem à l'École Bezalel (1946-1948) que dirige Mordecai lui permettent d'approfondir la théorie de la couleur et les principes du constructivisme. Parallèlement, il travaille comme graphiste dans des agences de publicité.

Sur le chemin des États-Unis,suivre les cours de l’Illinois Institute of Technology, Agam se fixe à Paris en novembre 1951. C'est en cette année qu'il commence à s'intéresser à l'art cinétique. Il s'inscrit à l’atelier d'art abstrait qu'anime Jean Dewasne et fait la connaissance de Fernand Léger et d'Auguste Herbin.

Il bénéficie en 1953 de sa première exposition personnelle, Tableaux transformables, dans laquelle il pose les bases d'un travail dans lequel la référence au judaïsme – dans une perspective philosophique davantage que religieuse – est constamment sous-jacente. Il s'impose à la première exposition internationale d’art cinétique à la galerie Denise René, à Paris, en 1955. C'est alors André Breton qui choisit les titres de ses œuvres.

Agam connaît un très grand succès jusqu'au début des années 1970.

À partir de 1971 il crée trois décors pour trois formes d'assiettes en porcelaine à la Manufacture nationale de Sèvres. Nécessitant jusqu'à dix-huit pierres lithographiques pour un seul décor, ces pièces en édition limitée seront notamment présentées au Palais de l'Élysée.

Michel ROUSSEAU

Michel Rousseau, universitaire français, créateur de la fondation Concorde

Goudji

Goudji was born in 1941 in a small Georgian town of Borjomi in a family of a physician and a lecturer of natural sciences; later the family moved to Batoumi on the Black sea coast.

At the age of 17 Goudji enters the Academy of Fine Arts in Tbilissi where he studies painting, sculpture, graphic arts and art history under talented professors, he has learned drawing under Vassily Shoukhayev, a Russian artist of l'Ecole de Paris who lived in France in the twentieth and thirtieth. Goudji devours books on history and theory of art and soon enough is offered a job at a workshop where he is modeling toys and ornaments out of samak - an alloy of zinc, tin and lead - for further industrial production. His competence and crectivity are duly appreciated: at the age of 23 he joins the USSR Artists Union thus becoming the youngest member of the prestigious body. Now he is very much in demand, he is getting orders for designing commemorative medals and postal stamps. It all gives him ample opportunities to travel, to spend time in the famous "homes of creativity" run by the Artists' Union for its members, to read as much as he wants to widen his scope of art knowledge. `

After his father's death in 1967 Goudji returns to Georgia. There he makes friends with two old artisans who from morning to nighifall are engaged in manufacturing identical copper trays and kettles to be sold at the bazar. Goudji watches them at work then little by little starts lending them a hand. This is a unique chance to master a technic kept alive for long ages,transmitted only through apprenticeship. In a couple of months Goudji acquires the skills of copper solUering, riveting, forging, chiselling.

Having come again to Moscow Goudji meets Katherine Barsacq, daughter of the famous director of Paris 's Theatre de l'Atelier André Barsacq and grand niece of Leon Bakst, decorator of the Russian Ballet of Diaghilev, working in the Cultural section of the French Embassy in the USSR. In spite of innumerable obstacles they get married in 1969 and apply for a French visa for Goudji. It immediately turns Goudji into a parich in the eyes of the Soviet state and society. He is left without any job or orders to wait for five long yeors for the permission to leave the country. He used the time to discover for himself andleorn from artisans of Oussolye (in the north-east of Russia's European part) the delicate technic of finift, a combination of copper and vitriol which is either spreud in layer upon layer or put into cells formed by copper mesh.

Thanks to repected efforts of President of France Georges Pompidou Goudji finally gets his exit visa. On January 31,1974 Goudji and Katherine arrive in France. They settle in Paris where the 33 yeors old artist can freely realize his creativity. On his own he masters the art of working precious metals evolving his instruments as the need arises. In the Soviet Union he was melting a couple of his grandfather's silver teaspoons to fashion some broches decorated with tiny sea pebbles...

In 1986 the French artist Goudji has become chevalier and in 1996 Comandor of the Order of Arts and Literature. In 1998, Goudji receives the title of "Maître d'Art" by the French Minister of Culture.

Rani CALDERON

After a period of intensive conducting activity in Israel and in Europe as well as numerous piano recitals in Israel, he was invited in 2002 to the Teatro Municipal of Santiago de Chile for Gluck's "Orphée et Eurydice", produced for the first time in the history of the country. His sounding success with both the orchestra and chorus as well as with the public won him a second invitation in 2003 for a double-bill of Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" and Puccini's "Gianni Schicchi" with the Italian baritone Leo Nucci. 

In 2005 he conducted Rossini's "Il Viaggio A Reims" with a first-rate cast of sixteen soloists at the Theâtre de La Monnaie in Brussels. This won him an overnight success, acclaimed by the public and acknowledged by the critics, opening his way to a brilliant international career. 

Rani Calderon studied piano with the late Prof. Pnina Salzman, a pupil of Alfred Cortot, both to become a major influence on Calderon's development as an artist. During his high school days, he organized his friends to form an orchestral ensemble combined with vocal soloists, and conducted arrangements which he had made of "Carmen", "West Side Story" and a selections of songs by Kurt Weill. During that period he was given his first conducting lessons by the late Prof. Shalom Ronli-Riklis, who also prepared Calderon for a first-time-in-Israel conducting matriculation. 

Later on Calderon studied conducting at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem with Prof. Mendi Rodan , concentrating on the symphonic repertoire. During the same period he continued studying the piano with Prof. Salzman at the Rubin Academy of Music in Tel-Aviv, playing a wide repertoire with a special emphasis on Chopin and Beethoven. He also studied harmony, counterpoint and composition with Prof. Yitzhak Sadai. 

During the IVAI opera workshop held in Tel-Aviv by Joan Dornemann from the Metropolitan Opera, where he was working as an accompanist, Calderon made acquaintance with the Florentine conductor, Maestro Bruno Rigacci who had been Tullio Serafin's assistant in his youth. This encounter proved to be vital for Calderon's development as an opera conductor. By observing Rigacci's way of working with singers, Calderon was able to learn the preparation methods of the old Italian maestri as well as acquire an intimate knowledge of the Italian operatic style from the bel canto to Puccini. 

It was Rigacci who invited Calderon to another summer workshop in Orvieto, Italy where full opera productions with orchestra were mounted. Calderon was to compete with five older Italian conductors and eventually win the first night of Puccini's "Suor Angelica" at the Teatro Mancinelli in 1996, at the age of 23. He returned to Orvieto in the next two years, each time winning the first night with "Madama Butterfly" (1997) and "Il Tabarro" (1998). 

Continuing his search for teachers of the various operatic styles, Calderon studied the French repertoire with Mme. Janine Reiss in Paris, also attending her master classes at the studio of the Opera de Paris. His knowledge of the German style was deepened by Mr. Richard Trimborn and Ms. Rita Loving in Munich, and Mr. Tom Christoff in Dresden. 

Calderon later conducted a. o. "Macbeth" (The Bukarest Radio Orchestra), "Elisir d'Amore" (Bühnen Graz), "Don Giovanni" (Volksoper, Vienna), "Zauberflöte" ,"Rigoletto", "Il Trittico" & "Turandot" (NIO, Tel-Aviv), "La Gioconda" & "La vie Parisienne" (ORW, Liège), "Rigoletto" (Opera de Massy), "La Sonnambula" (Vlaamse Opera), "Le Nozze di Figaro" (Mahon, Menorca), "Thais" (St. Etienne), "Andrea Chenier" (Monte Carlo), "Faust" (Bilbao), "Euryanthe" (Theatre du Capitole, Toulouse), "Aida" (Avignon) & "Simon Boccanegra" (Opera du Rhin, Strasbourg).

Following his La Monnaie success, he was invited by the Queen Elizabeth Competition to conduct a special concert for the Belgian national day (2007) in the presence of the royal family, transmitted on TV throughout Europe. 

At the Festival della Valle d'Itria in Italy he conducted Meyerbeer's "Semiramide" in a world premiere in modern times of the un-cut version, issued on "Dynamic"'. 

In 2010 Calderon was appointed principal conductor of the Orquesta Filarmonica de Santiago - the orchestra of the Teatro Municipal. Being a regular guest from 2002, he conducted at the Municipal a wide repertoire including Gluck's "Orphee", "Don Giovanni", a double-bill of "Pagliacci" & "Gianni Schicchi" with the italian baritone Leo Nucci, "Un Ballo in Maschera", "Tristan und Isolde", "L'italiana in Algeri", "Elektra" and "Macbeth". 

As a symphonic conductor he appeared with the Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice (Venice), Orchestre National de Belgique (Brussels), Orchestre National d'Ile de France (Paris),  Orchestre National de Montpellier, the OSPA (Oviedo), Orchestre Colonne (Paris), I Pomeriggi Musicali (Milano), the Sofia Philharmonic, the Rishon le-Zion Symphony Orchestra, the Ra-anana Symphonette and the Ashdod Chamber Orchestra in Israel. 

As a solo pianist he appeared in numerous recitals in Israel, where he played and explained a wide repertoire including Beethoven's 32 Sonatas, 7 Chopin recitals (including all the Études and Préludes), as well as works by Schubert, Schumann and Brahms. He gave solo recitals in Liege and during the Schumann festival in St. Etienne. He also frequently leads concertos from the piano. 

Future engagements include: "Ariadne auf Naxos" & "Aida" (Santiago de Chile), "Yevgeni Onegin" (Avignon) and "Oberon" (Theatre de la Capitole, Toulouse).

Rani Calderon speaks fluently Hebrew, English, Italian, French, German, Russian and Spanish and is currently studying ancient Greek. He won the America-Israel scholarship for conductors as well as the scholarship of the Dean of Faculty of Arts at the Tel Aviv University
