Change of Artist and Running Order
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Bojan Čičić (violin) and Thomas Dunford (theorbo) are unable to take part in the above concert. We are grateful to Coline Ormond (violin) for stepping in. There will be no replacement theorbo.

The new running order is now as listed below.


  • Arcangelo
  • Jonathan Cohen director, harpsichord
  • Sophie Gent violin
  • Coline Ormond violin
  • Jonathan Manson viola da gamba
  • Georgia Browne flute
  • Sophie Junker soprano

Arcangelo’s final concert as Wigmore Hall’s Baroque Ensemble in Residence closes with a dramatic invocation of post-war peace by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, the musician who introduced the double bass to the Paris Opéra orchestra.

Two sonatas from François Couperin’s ambitious portrait of four Catholic nations underline the inventive wealth of French music during the early 1700s.

  • Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (1676-1749)
        • Cantata: Léandre et Héro
  • François Couperin (c.1631-1712)
      • Les Nations
        • L'impériale
  • Interval
  • François Couperin
      • Les Nations
        • La Françoise
  • Michel Pignolet de Montéclair (1667-1737)
        • Le retour de la paix
