Ensemble Correspondances

Night, the world of myth and the mysteries of love are the subjects of this concert evoking an evening at the court of Louis XIII at the Palace of the Louvre. Sébastien Daucé leads an ensemble of nine singers and nine instrumentalists- a consort of viols, recorder, lute and chitarrone- from this distinguished French period orchestra, renowned for impeccable and award-winning recordings of 17th-century music. The artists bring to life elegant airs de cours by Antoine Boësset, Pierre Guédron, Etienne Moulinié and others, including the king himself: an accomplished dancer, musician and composer who laid the foundations for the modern art of ballet.
