It is an intimate concert that the hosts, Susie and Emmanuel Dubois, have offered to their guests of the Amis de Flaran and to Ms. Marie-Claude Montané, with the participation of the pianist Claude Bessmann and the soprano Yulia Petrachuk who lives in Washington DC. During the concert, which blended romanticism and modernism, works by Ravel, Strauss, Rachmaninoff but also by Emmanuel Dubois were presented. Emmanuel, prolific composer born in Brussels writes for piano, instruments and voice. Open to all styles, his modern pieces were performed by the virtuoso Claude Bessmann who work largely with singers. The soprano Yulia Petrachuk sings regularly melodies by Emmanuel Dubois. In New York she sang in world premier the melody "Yulia" dedicated to her by Emmanuel. The pianist and the soprano, in residence in Ténarèze have much appreciated the old character of Larressingle.
