Christian-Pierre La Marca
Christian-Pierre La Marca

Overview

Wonderful World is an immersive “concert-show”, imagined and created by French star cellist Christian-Pierre La Marca, as part of his commitment to raising public awareness about saving the planet as well as issues of protecting the environment.

As La Marca explains, and using his own eloquent instrument in a unique and unprecedented project of solidarity “music has the ability to awaken consciences, to make people more sensitive, without trying to convince or mobilize them. Music is a short circuit that goes straight to the heart”.

The cello, in the hands of Christian- Pierre La Marca, has often been compared to the human voice, in its handling of the melodic lines and curves, its flexibility, and its lyrical intensity. Accompanied by stunning film, images and works by photographer and director Yann Arthus-Bertrand along with text recitations, La Marca and famed Israeli pianist, Itamar Golan presents an ode to nature, an apolitical vision that awakens consciousness through beauty and the artistic force of multiple arts. It questions the current global situation, and the climate emergency and outlines prospects for ecological conversion. Themes speak about nature, cities, animals, endangered species, climate change… An immersive journey conducive to reflection, meditation and public awareness.
