Le Poeme Harmonique (France)

Conductor – Vincent Dumestre (France)

Founded in 1998 by conductor and baroque music expert Vincent Dumestre, Le Poeme Harmonique has soon become old music fans’ darling. The thing is that Le Poeme Harmonique not only recreates style and technic of playing the old instruments, but also evokes the ambience and aura of the Courtly era. Actors, dancers, and even circus artists take part in the concerts, that look like elegant spectacles rather than usual gig. And, of course, musicians of the orchestra play only “obsolete” and rare instruments: theorbo, theorbino, lirone, colachon, baroque guitar and harp. For conteprorary listener, it’s a real treat to hear those instruments sound.

Pieces by Monteverdi, Marini, Mannelli, Ferrari, Pergolesi, Cavalli, Lully, Charpentier, among many others, constitute the orchestra’s vast repertoire.
