The Périgord Noir festival has joined forces with the CMBV for its joint residency project with the Ensemble Diderot on the topic of 18th century French instrumental music.
Avid historical researcher and violonist Johannes Pramsohler and his Ensemble Diderot have embarked on a three year joint residency project with the CMBV this summer at the Festival du Périgord Noir. It opens with an eclectic concert From Venice to Paris demonstrating the powerful impact of the Italian style on 18th century French music. For this Dornel, Aubert and Boismortier join by Rossi, Buonamente and Legrenzi. This joint residency project with the Ensemble Diderot allows the CMBV to launch a major research project involving the editing and publishing of French instrumental music in the Age of Enlightenment. This year the focus is on Jean-Baptiste Quentin’s undeservedly neglected chamber music. Sight-reading sessions with the Ensemble Diderot will help select the best works to be edited by the CMBV.
