Eva Zaïcik & Taylor Consort: Héroïnes magiques
29 of November 2018
The young Taylor Consort has an interesting premise: translating human emotions on canvas into music. They have gone back to the time of Charles Le Brun, court painter to Louis XIV. He wrote the book "Methode pour apprendre à dessiner les passions", in which he organised the emotions into a detailed diagram. French musicians of the time were inspired by his work to write many secular cantatas. The Taylor Consort, founded by Justin Taylor after he won the International Musica Antiqua Harpsichord Competition in Bruges, brings the arias from these cantatas back to life with mezzo soprano Eva Zaïcik (following her sparkling performance at the Queen Elisabeth Competition of 2018).
