Heroïnes Baroques

Chamber concertt: Le Concert d'Astrée, Emmanuelle Haïm conductor, Magdalena Kozená mezzo soprano

She is one of the great singers of our time, the mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozená, sought after by the world’s leading opera houses and orchestras.

This is a chance to hear her in authentic French Baroque repertoires with Le Concert d’Astrée, who provide an exceptionally crisp and airy sound on their period instruments. With both sorrowful and sweet music by Rameau, Charpentier and Marais, the cream of the French Baroque.

”Ms Dynamite of French Baroque”

After studying the piano and cembalo, the conductor Emmanuelle Haïm chose the conductor’s track and formed the Le Concert d’Astrée in 2000. Her energetic conducting and intense interpretations have given her the nickname “Ms Dynamite of French Baroque” in the English-language press. At the same time, her involvement in international orchestras increases. She has conducted Berlin’s Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic and the Academy of Music Berlin.

Ensemble-in-residence at the Opéra de Lille, Le Concert d’Astrée receives support from the City of Lille.
The Association Le Concert d’Astrée receives support from the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication – Direction régionale des affaires culturelles des Hauts-de-France (Hauts-de-France Regional Department of Cultural Affairs Ministry) in the form of a subsidy for an approved company. The Département du Nord is a partner of Le Concert d’Astrée.
