As a lover of French music - and a connoisseur of the Baroque repertoire - Paul Agnew has imagined this unusual concert to celebrate the Epiphany, based on the great French composers of the 17th century such as Charpentier, Lully, Campra, Nivers and Bouzignac...
This concert is part of the Arts Florissants Christmas program at Fontevraud Abbey:
For the festive season, Les Arts Florissants and Fontevraud are joining forces for an exceptional event: an original musical Christmas in the Abbey!
The two Centres Culturels de Rencontre of the Pays de la Loire region are collaborating once again, to the delight of music lovers and heritage enthusiasts. Spread over the entire nativity season, from Advent to Epiphany, four concerts invite you to plunge into the musical atmosphere of 17th century French Christmas. This is an opportunity to hear some of the most beautiful scores by Marc-Antoine Charpentier and his contemporaries, performed by the greatest specialists in this repertoire under the expert baton of William Christie and Paul Agnew.
Concert co-produced by the Centre Culturel de l’Ouest and Les Arts Florissants
