The Concert at the Riviera of Lake Geneva

Friday 14 June 2013

The Beautiful ABC Foundation presented 4 fantastic fund raising concerts between december 2012 and June 2013 in collaboration with “Continuum”: two master musicians, patient and plastic surgeon together, exhibiting an unedited masterpiece of classical music representing the experiences during and after the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

 

A musician and her surgeon.

CONTINUUM, a vivid witness to and reminder of the extraordinary benefits Art may bring about, both in the hospital milieu and in the healing process. A source of hope, illuminating how a painful ordeal, once transcended, may suddenly reveal itself to be a way forward to a deeper, richer, totally transformed life.

The carrier of a gene that almost certainly predisposes her to cancer, a musician makes the courageous decision to undergo preventative surgery, an ordeal that brings much pain but also lays bare her inmost being.
A friendship is born between the artist and her plastic surgeon, all the more natural in that the surgeon is also a musician. The story of this human journey is told completely through music and text, in ten scenes, and is performed by the very people who lived through it: the violinist Anne Robert, and her doctor, the pianist Alain Gagnon, with the participation of two actors.The carrier of a gene that almost certainly predisposes her to cancer, a musician makes the courageous decision to undergo preventative surgery, an ordeal that brings much pain but also lays bare her inmost being.
