Pyrenean creation by
Aria Pirenèus has grown out of the fascination that Michel Fenasse-Amat has for the Pyrenees. By composing music for some of the most beautiful poems written here, be them basque, catalan, spanish, french or occitan in origin, he is in fact glorifying those different identities, cultures and languages that spring from these beautiful pyrenean mountains.
Since the public premiere at the Ostal d’Occitània in Toulouse (House of the Occitan Region) in october 2015 and the release of their self-titled album Aria Pirenèus (Agorila label) in 2016, Michel Fenasse-Amat’s pyrenean musical creation has been presented in various programmes such as the “Festival de la Cathédrale de Narbonne”, the “Scène de Foix”, and the “Festival Déodat de Séverac”, a tour greeted with acclaim by the press in august 2018 in the french Basque Country, with a finale in the courtyard of the Château de Pau.
Aria Pirenèus was programmed in the Toulouse event « 2018 the year of Occitania – Tolosa Occitana », then in Spain in June 2019 at the Castle of Loarre (Province of Huesca) programmed by the Autonomous Community of Aragon, and in September 2019 in the Courtyard of the Château Comtal of the City of Carcassonne (programmed by the Monuments de France).
