Les Maîtres de Notre-Dame
26 March 2024/20h30/ France / Perpignan
In the 17th century, the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris and its majestic organ were the epicenter of sacred music in France, where the most creative composers of their time, such as Pierre Robert and André Campra, brought new splendor to the liturgy. André Campra's Requiem is one of the most striking pieces of this period. The singers and musicians of Ensemble Correspondances reveal the solar intensity of this resolutely radiant and profound work. The ensemble is constantly in search of a style of playing as close as possible to that practiced in 17th-century France. They recently brought the coronation of Louis XIV at the Château de Versailles to musical life. Their recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have been acclaimed by French and international critics alike.
