Bach et La France


  • Les Talens Lyriques
  • Christophe Rousset director, harpsichord
  • Jocelyn Daubigney flute

Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques have opened countless ears to the rich expressive possibilities and dashing musical vitality of Baroque music over the past quarter of a century.

Named after the subtitle of one of Rameau’s operas, Les fêtes d’Hébé, Rousset’s band is famed worldwide for its entrancing interpretations and profound understanding of early French repertoire. The group here turns its acclaimed collective expertise to the French dance rhythms of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1 and the Orchestral Suite from Rameau’s opera Castor et Pollux, presenting each work in company with instrumental concertos of terrific virtuosity and spirit.
