Les Talens Lyriques
Audio description is now a firmly established part of Chamber Music New Zealand’s ‘repertoire’ and this year internationally acclaimed French ensemble Les Talens Lyriques will feature.
The concert is on Wednesday 13 April, 7.30pm at the Michael Fowler Centre with a meet-and-greet touch tour on stage at 6pm.
Christophe Rousset (Ensemble Director) is the outstanding harpsichordist of his generation, and describes his instrument as a time machine – “it really takes you to another era”. He brings three leading members of the group with him, each of whom is a soloist in their own right, for their first visit to New Zealand as Les Talens Lyriques. With a varied programme of suites, sonatas and character pieces, Rousset and the brilliant musicians of Les Talens Lyriques will transport you back to Versailles – to the dazzlingly elegant and indulgent court of the Sun King.
Tickets $65, companion free (if required) and concession rates for those over 65 and students.
