CONCERT SPIRITUEL by ENSEMBLE L’ORANGERIE5€ – 8€
In the Europe of the early eighteenth century, music is a regular host of courts, churches and the outdoors. However, over the course of the century and with the rise of the bourgeoisie, it begins to be heard in places hitherto unusual. The new concepts of public concert and concert hall are born. This means that, if one is willing to pay, you can attend the concert of your choice, a practice that until now was only possible at the Opera. Telemann pioneered the founding of the public concerts of the Collegium Musicum in Leipzig in 1701. But the most famous institution is that of the Concerts spirituels founded by Anne Danican Philidor, in 1725, in Paris. With this new practice, the diffusion of chamber music is accelerated for small groups throughout Europe.
In the spirit of the Concerts Spirituels, the ENSEMBLE L’ORANGERIE proposes a program with a small selection of jewels from the chamber music repertoire of the first half of the 18th century by highly acclaimed composers already in their time, among others Telemann, Corelli and Pierre Philidor .
