Les actualités baroques décomplexées

L’opéra-pastorale de Lorenzani, Nicandro e Fileno, sur un livret en italien de Philippe-Julien Mancini, duc de Nevers, et commandité par le duc de Vivonne, fut créé devant le Roi Louis XIV dans la Galerie des Cerfs du Château de Fontainebleau en septembre 1681. Succès indéniable......

Alors que l’été s’écoulait tranquillement pour certains, les Boréades de Montréal, le Nouvel Opéra et leur collaborateurs étaient occupés à travailler d’arrache-pied sur l’opéra Nicandro e Fileno. Faire renaître une oeuvre jamais produit en version scénique depuis sa création… en 1681? La tâche n’est pas......

Comment se préparer à un opéra qui n’a pas été présenté sur scène depuis sa création en 1681, et pis encore, n’a jamais été enregistré? En guise de hors-d’oeuvre à notre production du 23 novembre prochain, Les Boréades et Le Nouvel Opéra vous proposent des enregistrements......

Artistic Director’s Note

2017-2018 Season

Another magnificent season is here… As always, Les Boréades selected four very different concerts out of the vast and rich universe of baroque and classical music. To further enhance the diversity of our selection, we are introducing a new identification system for our concerts. Inspired by our well-known love of fine dining, we will now have a series of culinary names to identify different types of performances. The Ratatouille and Minestrone categories will reference the French and Italian repertoire respectively, while Strudel and Banquet will designate the classical repertoire for the first, and large scale projects for the second. The Mignardises series will be exclusive to promoting the virtuoso capacities of the members of the ensemble, no matter the repertoire. Each one of them can thus propose recitals and share newly discovered favourites, accompanied by some of their colleagues.

For the Banquet category, we showcase a chamber opera by Paolo Lorenzani, a court musician in service to Queen Marie-Thérèse. It was performed for the court in 1681, in Fontainebleau, and tells of the follies of two old men, disturbed passions and chassés-croisés, all in a world of unfailing inspiration. Italian Mignardises are next, performed by yours truly, followed by a Strudel dedicated to the extraordinary Friedrich Hartmann Graf’s chamber music and a Ratatouille of some of the Danican-Philidor family’s compositions.

We hope to see you amongst us!

Artistic Director’s Note

2016-2017 Season

The twenty first year already. How far have we got thanks to the most amazing early music (although not “old” per se!)… And it is more than ever our pleasure to offer you as much well-known masterpieces as unknown beauties found in this endless repertoire.  As opening act this year, a French instrumental music concert from the beginning of the eighteenth century, largely highlighting Olivier Brault’s violin. It will be followed by some Bach’s cantatas, which we will be presenting with the St. Lawrence Choir at the Bourgie Hall, in collaboration with the Arte Musica Foundation. The season’s last two concerts will be visiting the British Isles with Karina Gauvin, soprano, who will be singing Purcell’s most beautiful airs. Flute player Chris Norman will then bring us in Scotland and Ireland’s green lands with a touch of traditional music. We full heartedly hope you will join us in this journey!

Les Boréades de Montréal

Francis Colpron, Artistic director and founder

Who are les Boréades?

Founded by Francis Colpron in 1991, Les Boréades de Montréal focuses on early music. The ensemble has chosen an interpretative approach in keeping with the spirit of the Baroque era, by adhering to the rules of performance practice of the past and playing on period instruments. Critics and audiences alike in Canada and abroad have been unanimous in hailing the group’s energy and spontaneity as well as its theatrical, expressive and elegant playing, indicative of a unique flair for Baroque aesthetics.
