Performances that Take Your Breath Away
The musicians who make up Delirium Musicum make sure each concert is an immediate, visceral experience for their audiences. Their impassioned performances grab hold of concert-goers’ emotions and don’t let go. The musicans are among the top up-and-coming performers in classical music, and draw from Los Angeles’ crackling artistic energy. The experience is awe-inspiring, from the first moment that a bow is drawn across a string until the very last note!
Founder and Artistic Director
French-born violinist Etienne Gara has performed extensively worldwide in some of the most renowned venues, including recurring international appearances at Itzhak Perlman’s Chamber Music Festival. Dedicated to crossing musical boundaries, he appeared on Leonard Cohen’s last album, collaborated with Benjamin Millepied and the LA Dance Project, founded the award-winning Sunset Club Trio, which combined violin with flamenco and electric guitar in arrangements of great classical repertoire, and created Sketches of Miles, a multi-stylistic exploration inspired by the work of Miles Davis. Newly named Artist in Residence at The Soraya, he has held the same position since 2019 at USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute where he recorded his French Recital CD on the Leonora Jackson Stradivarius from 1714.
Delirium Musicum is all about the ecstatic sense of togetherness that music can inspire. It’s also about a new generation of classical musician who brings a fresh approach to the old masters and enthusiasm for the new. The love and excitement my colleagues and I have playing together creates a bond on stage that allows us to be spontaneous. We enjoy the thrill of being on the “edge”; it generates an energy that pulls the audience into our performances and brings them along with us.
