MEDITATION

A Medecine for the Mind
 

SYNOPSIS

A unique, intense and intimate concert. The wonderful encounter between the Buddhist monk, thinker and humanitarian Matthieu Ricard and the revered pianist Maria João Pires.

 

A concert in which carefully selected Preludes and Fugues from J.S. Bach's Well Tempered Clavier and Schubert's Impromptus weave together with meditative reflections on attentive listening, altruistic love and pure awareness.

 

A dazzling dialogue about Empathy, Love, Giving, Solidarity and Sharing

This outstanding concert has been the subject of several performances around the world. All the profits from the concerts and part of the sales of Concert-Méditation are donated to the Karuna-Shechen charity founded by Matthieu Ricard in 2000 to fund humanitarian projects in support of underprivileged populations in India, Nepal and Tibet. 

 

PRESS REVIEWS

“Un échange lumineux autour de l’empathie, l’amour, le don, l’entraide ou le partage.
“La manière d’entendre et d’écouter la musique devrait se faire d’une autre façon, moins concentrée dans les noms des musiciens. C’est une façon de se rapprocher des autres.”
“Nous sommes ressortis avec une grande paix intérieure”
