Les Arts Florissants
- A Baroque Odyssey (2019-2020)
For the Ensemble’s 40th anniversary (1979-2019), 3 CDs have been published by Harmonia mundi. A way to (re)discover the most famous Baroque music pieces and the best recordings of Les Arts Florissants.
Music and theater, sacred music, secular music : through the Ensemble’s hits, one can revisit the milestones of the XVII and XVIII French, Italian and English repertoire rediscovery by Les Arts Flo.
Gathered in this album are the most striking interpretets over four decades of artistic productions: from the founding members to the young laureates of Jardin des Voix.
Together with the singers and instrumentists, William Christie, founder of Les Arts Florissants 40 years ago, and Paul Agnew, assistant musical director, are keeping the Baroque spirit alive.
