« Healing & Joy »

ISQA c’est avant tout un désir de transmission né des 12 ans d’existence et de découvertes au sein du Quatuor Zaïde.
ISQA c’est la nécessité pour nous aujourd’hui de partager notre force et notre identité unique dans le monde de la musique classique.
Douze ans de recherches et d’apprentissages musicaux autant qu’humains et une même mission, toujours: comment construire à quatre une vision musicale cohérente, un discours nourri des forces et des mondes intérieurs de chacun.e, dans un espace de travail sain, avec des outils de communication bienveillante?

C'est tout ceci que nous avons envie de partager avec vous grâce à ce rendez vous international et intergénérationnel de tous les quatuors à cordes.
Des grands maîtres dépositaires des secrets d’une tradition multi-centenaire jusqu’aux jeunes talents prometteurs en passant par les artistes confirmés du genre, ISQA a vocation à devenir un lieu incontournable où les groupes puissent travailler ensemble, créer dans un esprit de soutien et d'équipe.

Et puisque la Musique est un « soin de l’âme », ISQA intègre à son parcours de formation des domaines annexes à la pratique instrumentale, pour prendre soin (« heal ») d'autres aspects de la vie et de la carrière des musiciens (développement de stratégie de carrière, art de la relaxation, conférences et workshops autour de la femme interprète).

Un autre aspect de la mission d’ISQA est d’offrir une plate-forme de concerts à tous les quatuors, jeunes et confirmés, avec des partenaires nationaux et internationaux, en streaming et ouverts au public.
En espérant vous retrouver nombreux au sein de l’académie et dans le public des 2 concerts du festival d'ISQA,

Avec beaucoup de joie,
Le Quatuor Zaïde

MOVEMENT · 60 MIN

Workshop for producing sounds by body awareness par Charlotte Maclet et Leslie Boulin Raulet.
Leslie Boulin Raulet and Charlotte Maclet propose a meditative workshop inspired by Qi Gong. A moment to breathe, to heal the hard working body of musicians and to relieve physical and emotional tension. Since 18 years Charlotte & Leslie specialize alongside their musical carreer in Qi Gong and meditation applied to music making. They work with instrumentalists of all backgrounds to help them create a healthy relationship with their instrument and support their search for harmony between body and instruments.

CHARLOTTE MACLET - 1st violin

As 1st violinist of the Paris-based Quatuor Zaide, Charlotte enjoys an international career, playing in the most prestigious halls of the world and recording for NoMad Music label.
Since almost 20 years she has been practicing QiGong and studied Meditation with the great Chinese master Zhijing Wang and his student Dominic Hill in the Hua Gong tradition.
She has trained in Shiatsu and Traditional Chinese Medicine and teaches QiGong and Meditation to groups of musicians and non-musicians.
She developed a technique of body scan while playing her instrument which she likes to share with musicians, in order to help them relieve the physical, mental and emotional tensions they might be experiencing. She developed and experienced for 12 years these techniques of “sound production through awareness of the body” with the members of her ensemble Camerata Alma Viva and created numerous original projects based on these meditative techniques.

LESLIE BOULIN RAULET - 2nd violin

Leslie Boulin Raulet is the second violin of the Zaïde Quartet. It's been now 8 years that Leslie is having the time of her life in this ensemble and is the mother of a 4 years old child. After graduating from the best music schools in France, USA and ENGLAND (CRR of Boulogne- Billancourt, Lawrence University, Royal College of Music and Guildhall school of music), Leslie worked with the best symphonic orchestras and chamber orchestras in England (London Symphony Orchestra, BBC concert orchestra, Southbank Sinfonia, Manchester Camerata, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra) and in France (Chamber Orchestra of Paris, Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra). Passionate about creative alternative projects, Leslie founded the Brillig ensemble, a chamber orchestra that she lead from the violin. Leslie developped meditation alongside music at the same level. Leslie was the apprentice of Dominic Hill, learning a Qua Gong meditation imported from China by Zhijing Wang. Then she studied with Martine Faideau, a Soufi Master. It's been now almost 20 years that Leslie practise and teach meditation. " All these years of meditation have an immediate and sustainable impact on my way of playing, the way I practice music, my joy to come on stage and to be who I am ! I know I need to give this experience to musicians for them to find their inner peace, the joy and well-being in their bodies with their instruments on stage. "
