Les Traverseés Baroques

This renowned ensemble from Dijon specializing in Baroque music presents Regards Croisés: Claudio Monteverdi, Etienne Meyer, in a meeting between a contemporary composer and the music of the brilliant master of the chapel of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice. How does a composer of today appropriate and transpose the legacy of a language invented 400 years ago? How will he use the timbres of early instruments, words, melodic features, resonances or harmonies?

“Claudio Monteverdi is a great point of reference. I have absolutely no intention of measuring myself or comparing myself to him – this would obviously not make sense. Rather, I used his music as a starting point for a new composition.” A carte blanche similar to a challenge according to Etienne Meyer.
