Le Consort, a one-of-a-kind chamber music ensemble, brings together four young musicians who interpret the trio sonata repertoire with enthusiasm, sincerity and modernity. From Corelli to Vivaldi, from Purcell to Couperin, the dialogue between the two violins and the basso continuo displays a wealth of contrasts between vocality, sensuality and virtuosity. Le Consort takes this genre, the quintessence of baroque chamber music, and interprets it with a personal, dynamic and colorful language. Le Consort is in residence at the Banque de France, the Singer-Polignac Foundation and the Abbaye de Royaumont. Read full bio
