Study day :  "Musicological studies with Catherine Massip : between art and sciences" - Day of tribute to Catherine Massip

September 21 2022

The Fondation Les Arts Florissants — William Christie pays tribute to Cathrine Massip on Saturday, October 15, 2022 in the framework of the Study days "Musicological studies with Catherine Massip : between art and sciences" organized by the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Études and the Royaumont Foundation. An event under the sign of one love: music. 

Les Arts Florissants, William Christie and Paul Agnew are pleased to take part in the homage to the musicologist Catherine Massip, whose work has greatly contributed to the rediscovery of the Baroque repertoire. On this occasion, a concert will be played for 30 minutes, under the musical direction of William Christie and Paul Agnew at the Music Library - La Grange Fleuret, near the Parc Monceau in Paris.

Catherine Massip is an emeritus musicologist who has maintained a close relationship with Les Arts Florissants ever since their foundation. Named as the curator of the music department of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, she directed it for more than 20 years while serving as president of the association Les Arts Florissants from 1996 to 2011, before becoming in 2012 general secretary and treasurer of the Fondation Les Arts Florissants - William Christie. Through her passionate commitment, Catherine Massip has played a fundamental role in the development of the Les Arts Florissants project and in its interactions with the world of musicological research.

It is therefore with great gratitude and sincere friendship that the Foundation pays tribute to her career of excellence, and thanks her for her unfailing support for the re-enchantment of Baroque music and its repertoire.
