Artistic Director’s Note
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!
