Created in 1979 by William Christie, the Les Arts Florissants ensemble is one of the formations devoted to baroque music the most famous in the world. Residing at the Philharmonie de Paris since 2015, it’s natural that the place celebrates the 40th anniversary of Les Arts Florissants with a temporary exhibition, Costumes en fête, to see at the heart of the Musée de la Musique from December 20, 2019 to May 11, 2020.
In the museum’s rooms, silk costumes lead to a new look on the 1.000 instruments displayed. Between Chopin’s piano, Sarasate’s fiddle by Antonio Stradivari, the Musée de la Musique unveils 40 costumes from the operas produced by this formation, from The Return of Ulysses by Monteverdi to Les Indes Galantes by Rameau. We have to say costumes are wonderful, created for baroque operas from the Great French century presented worldwide.
Every year, Les Arts Florissants ensemble’s 60 singers and musicians will perform Mozart, Purcelle, Rameau, Handel or Campra for 100 performances across the world for a great festival in Vendée.
Here’s a wonderful occasion to revisit this confidential museum and why not enjoying a live concert?
