Katia and Marielle Labèque, the famous pianist sister duo with a career spanning more than fifty years, release their new album dedicated to the music of Philip Glass, completing his operatic triptych composed between 1993 and 1996, based on the films by Jean Cocteau.

After their much-acclaimed recording of Les Enfants Terribles in 2020, Katia and Marielle now present the remaining two works in the Cocteau Trilogy: Orphe´e and La Belle et la Be^te, arranged for them by Glass’ music director Michael Riesman.

With the Cocteau Trilogy, Katia and Marielle Labèque continue their exploration of the repertoire of the American repetitive composer, of whom they are major interpreters. 

The Cocteau Trilogy will premiere in spring 2024 at the Philharmonie in Paris, then in Bordeaux, Metz, Dublin and London.
