The eternal return

Baroque at Orsay? The exhibition Degas at the Opera reveals fascinating connections between the great post-romantic painters and the masters of impressionism and modernity who often resonated to the sounds of Gluck, Bach, and Rameau. The industrial era nurtured nostalgia, the idea of a legacy and a heritage. Soak in this clash of eras, led by some of the most prominent artists in the new wave of early music!

Born in Argentina, conductor Leonardo García Alarcón initially embraced his Latin temperament through an Italian baroque repertoire. The ensemble he founded, Cappella Mediterranea, has become one of the world’s best known in this style. But driven by his love for France, this musician also harbours a passion for the music of the Grand Siècle and the Lumières. Don't miss out on his conducting of Rameau, whose orchestral depth and inventive genius constitute one of the apexes of French music.

Pre-concert (in French): Paris 1900: capital of ancient music

With Ivan Alexandre, musicologist and journalist

In 1900, Debussy wrote his Nocturnes, Satie played Jack in the Box, and Aristide Bruant sung A la Goutte d'or.
Paris was turning to modernity during the Belle Epoque. Yet at the same time, Wanda Landowska rediscovered the harpsichord, Saint-Saëns published the forgotten operas of Rameau, and the Schola Cantorum revived Monteverdi. Thus from a vague memory, ‘ancient music’ became a movement.

Jean Rondeau, clavecin
Thomas Dunford, luth

Œuvres de Jean-Philippe Rameau, Antoine Forqueray, Marin Marais, Robert de Visée, François Couperin, Jean-Henri d'Anglebert

A more intimate but certainly no more conventional take on Rameau and his contemporaries. These pieces for keyboard and chamber ensemble pay tribute to one of the most daring adventures in French music. If daring is one of the facets, then so is virtuosity and an incredible sensitivity. All qualities shared by the rising stars of the French baroque scene, Jean Rondeau and Thomas Dunford, whose mellowness goes hand in hand with self-sacrifice and boundless artistic stringency.
