Toulouse Baroque Ensemble

 

L' The Toulouse Baroque Ensemble

Founded in 1998, the ensemble's main focus is on baroque and classical oratorio. Its interpretation of J.S. Bach's oratorios has earned the Ensemble reviews pointing to "(?) an unforgettable journey (?) the audience gave all the artists a standing ovation." (Classiquenews, 2017), "The Toulouse Baroque Ensemble has earned its stripes of excellence" (Resmusica, 2017), or "It must be said that on such an echo, the Toulouse Baroque Ensemble does not suffer from the comparison with the Musiciens du Louvre" (Bachtrack, 2017).

In 2016, the Ensemble Baroque de Toulouse released its first recording, the opera Le Triomphe des Arts by Bernard-Aymable Dupuy. Composed in 1733, this long-forgotten masterpiece is the only baroque opera from Toulouse, and one of only two composed far from the royal court. The recording, made during the only re-creation concert, was hailed by the critics, who wrote: "A magnificent result" (Classiquenews). Michel Brun shows himself to be a very convincing conductor, who knows how to give the dances of this opera-ballet the appropriate relief. The orchestra is also equal to the task" (Forumopera), and finally "A salutary approach to the rediscovery of a forgotten score (?) It is a model". (OdB Opera). The EBT?s second disc, Vivaldi, entre Ombre et Lumière, will also be enthusiastically received when it is released at the end of 2021.

Under the direction of its founder and conductor Michel Brun, the Ensemble divides its activity between repertoire and creation, giving rise to original performances that have been acclaimed by audiences throughout Europe, such as Caravane Baroque, which draws on the profoundly popular character of baroque music, or Caprices de Saisons, which combines compositions and repertoire music in a grand fresco set against a backdrop of environmental concerns.

THE PROGRAMME

A new programme is offered, devoted to the French and German repertoires of the Baroque period, with Italian influences:

 

 

 

The church of Saint Martin de Limeuil

This is the first time that Musique en Périgord has taken over this Romanesque chapel, one of the most beautiful in the Périgord, with its excellent acoustics. It was built in 1170 at the request of Henry II of England in expiation for the murder of Thomas Beckett.

At the confluence of the Dordogne and Vézère rivers, the charming medieval village of Limeuil, with its stone houses and brown tiled roofs typical of the Périgord Noir, stretches from the panoramic gardens to the port, where commercial activity was once intense. Limeuil has known the torments of the Viking invasions and the Hundred Years War, three fortified gates still testify.
