York Early Music Festival 2015 (Thursday 2 – Saturday 11 July) Entente Cordiale
York Early Music Festival 2015, Thursday 2 – Saturday 11 July, embraces 300 years of music making, bringing together the music and musicians of England and France to explore a time mixed with harmony and discord in Anglo-French history. Many of the world’s finest early music artists including : Andreas Staier ; The London Handel Players ; Andrew Parrott and his Tavernor Consort ; The Sixteen directed by Harry Christophers ; The Early Opera Company led by Christian Curnyn ; distinguished Belgian vocalists the Huelgas Ensemble ; Katie Debretzeni, Richard Boothby and Mahan Esfahani ; The Clerks ; Sylvia Abramowicz, Jonathan and Thomas Dunford and The Orlando Consort, will perform in some of York’s most beautiful and historic venues.
Delma Tomlin, YEMF Administrative Director, says : "The 2015 festival opens with a celebration of Baroque Dance with the London Handel Players recreating the spirit and spectacle of the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Throughout the Festival we hope our audiences will discover something new in the culture of this fascinating period of Anglo-French history through its music and musicians. And, as the Festival culminates with the 2015 International Young Artists Competition on 11 July, during which we welcome ensembles from across the UK, Europe and the USA, that they will share our delight in spotting the early music ’stars’ of the future in this Competition which has gone from strength to strength in the last two decades."

Festival de Saintes - l'Abbaye aux Dames, la cité musicale
Par : Abbaye aux Dames, La Cité Musicale, Saintes
Cette année le Festival de Saintes aura lieu du 10 au 18 juillet.
Parce que Saintes a toujours été le lieu idéal pour faire des découvertes ou tenter des aventures, les artistes invités cette année vont convoquer des compositeurs qui ne nous sont pas forcément familiers ici.
Qu’on en juge plutôt : Borodine avec le clarinettiste Raphaël Sévère, Erik Satie et John Cage chez Alexeï Lubimov, Fux avec Vox Luminis, la merveilleuse Petite Messe de Rossini de l’ensemble Aedes, et pour finir les premiers Wagner et Strauss de Philippe Herreweghe. Nous accueillerons le premier concerto de Maude Gratton, les transcriptions du violon ou du luth de Jean Rondeau et de jeunes ensembles qui foulent pour la première fois le sol de l’abbaye (Cambini, Gli Angeli, La Main Harmonique, Faenza…). Enfin, vous ne manquerez pas la fabuleuse restitution musicale des fastes du mariage de Louis XIV que donne Sébastien Daucé, dont l’ensemble résida à Saintes avant de devenir Correspondances.
